I made the mistake one weekend in September of baking “Slutty” brownies for my group of guy friends. Since that fateful weekend I couldn’t go a week without a request for them to be made again because they enjoyed them so much. (Until second semester when I finally baked another batch.)
This is a great recipe to have in your arsenal. It’s not complicated and I guarantee it will be a success in any situation. (Unless you make it for a bunch of people who hate absolutely amazing brownies.)
So without further ado…
- 1 box of Betty Crocker Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix
- 1 box of Betty Crocker Brownie Mix
- 1 package of Oreos (I always use the Double Stuff, but regular Oreos will do as well.)
(For the brownie and cookie mix you’ll need to buy eggs, butter and vegetable oil if you don’t have them on hand.)
This recipe requires a little bit of rule breaking. Follow the mixing directions on the packages of cookie and brownie mix, but don’t even bother looking at the baking instructions.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Mix the cookie dough. Mush it in a greased baking pan, until the whole bottom is covered.
(I use a 13×9 Pyrex pan that is one of my most used investments since I purchased it in the beginning of the school year.)
Place your Oreos on top of the cookie dough.
Mix the brownie batter and pour it over the Oreos until they are completely submerged under a layer of chocolately-goodness.
Throw them in the oven and set the timer for 30 minutes. (It will take longer for them to bake than this but I have yet to discover the perfect time.)
Check them at 30 minutes and then again at 40 minutes. So on and so forth until you can stick a toothpick in the pan and it comes out clean. (The old cake test rule.) They are usually done somewhere between 40 and 50 minutes, but all ovens are different so keep a watchful eye on them just to be safe.
Allow them to cool a bit before cutting. (If you can stand to wait.) I highly recommend serving them still warm, with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on the side.
Guard these with your life, because I promise they will be gone in the blink of an eye.
Tips & Tricks:
When mixing the cookie dough and the brownie batter I have learned if you add an extra tablespoon of vegetable oil it helps to prevent the cookies/brownies from getting dry during the baking process. (Especially in this instance, because they are in the oven for so long.)
