Chocolate Chip Oreo Brownies

If after reading the title and seeing the picture you’re still looking for more… it’s likely you have an insatiable sweet tooth like me.  I saw these Chocolate Chip & Oreo Caramel Brownies on Pinterest from the site Betchacanteatjustone and immediately pinned it to wait patiently for the right occasion.  These brownies are dangerous and should not be left unattended…they will disappear and potentially wreak havoc.  Which is precisely why I made them to bring to my tennis match.

Four layers:  chocolate chip cookie dough, Oreo cookies, caramel sauce, brownie batter.  If you’re feeling ambitious go right aheadChocolate Chip Oreo Brownies and whip up your favorite cookie dough, caramel topping (great trick online using sweetened condensed milk), and brownie recipe from scratch.  I however took the easy way out for all of it and literally had it assembled in less than 10 minutes.  I used:

  1. Pre-made cookie dough
  2. Double Stuf Oreos (why cut calories at this point)
  3. Caramel ice cream topping from a jar
  4. Boxed brownie mix

I also used an 8″x12″ square sided pan instead of 9″x13″ but either would be fine.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Line pan with parchment paper (not waxed paper…made that mistake only once) and press cookie dough evenly across the bottom.  Trust me, you will need the wax paper to be able to lift these out of the pan.

Chocolate Chip Oreo BrowniesAfter reading several comments on other sites about these babies being too gooey, I decided to pre-bake the cookie dough for 5 minutes, while making brownie batter (according to instructions on box).  Yes those are Triple Chunk Brownies.  You’re either all the way in or you’re out.  Clearly I’m in.  Then add a perfect layer of Oreo goodness and as if there wasn’t enough sugar sweetness going on already….lets add caramel sauce.  It was a little tricky getting this evenly spread…recommend slowly pouring or even spooning it over the Oreos.  Lastly pour brownie batter over everything else… hehehe.

It really is quite gluttonous and rather ridiculous but in a good way of course.  Back to being ‘gooey.’  The instructions say to bake these until almost done….they should appear slightly under baked.  I went 30 minutes to start, then went another 5.  Chocolate Chip Oreo BrowniesMine were definitely gooey in the middle, kind of like finding a molten lava cake surprise :)  Next time…yes, there will be a next time (I got more facebook comments on this teaser post than any previous post and I know my work family would love these), next time I will go 40 minutes total and take my chances on the edges getting a little over done.

Be sure to completely cool before lifting the parchment paper out of the pan…wouldn’t hurt to refrigerate until nice and firm.  Cut the Chocolate Chip & Oreo Caramel Brownies into bars, cutting through the middle of each Oreo to get the full layered effect.

Because they were so sinfully sweet and I wanted to spread the love…I cut these into bite size pieces.  Pretty sure everyone who tried them had multiple bites.  Yum!
