When I have too much time on my hands ... things happen.
Although I don't have much of a sweet tooth, I love whipping up decadent treats in an attempt to find stand-out desserts to make for dinner parties, etc.. No one seems to mind my adventures in baking, as I always have plenty to share!
These brownies go by many names, and have been making their way around the Internets. I saw them first here, and then more recently here. The best thing about them is that they are super easy to make.
Start with a layer of chocolate chip cookie dough. I made mine from scratch, but you could also use the store-bought stuff. Spread it into a 9x13 pan that has been lined with parchment and sprayed.
Next, cover the dough with a layer of double-stuffed Oreo cookies.
Finally, pour brownie batter on top. I used one pack of mix from this box I got at Costco.
Bake at 350 for about 30 minutes (might need more time). It is done when a toothpick comes out gooey, but not dripping wet.
Let cool for about an hour, then cut into it with a cold knife. Wipe knife between cuts so that you don't make a giant mess of it.
Do you eat your own baking, or are you more of a bake-for-others person like me?
I do try a taste of everything I bake, but then I usually pass it off on others and go for the bacon or cheese.
