Chocolate Chip, Oreo, Brownie, Fudge Bars

There are lots and lots and lots of recipes like this on the internet and Pinterest.  From what I could see, one of my favorite blogs (that's not on my blog list.....but will be after I write this post),, is the original creator of this absolutely, wonderfully, delicious dessert.  Here is the link to their original recipe so you can see pictures. I iced mine with the hot fudge, but forgot to take a picture of the final product.  Just use your Barney the dinosaur would say! :)

I tweaked this recipe a little bit - just to make it quicker and easier.  I think homemade anything is always better, but confess that sometimes I just go with the box/package mixes/tubes.  And actually, some people prefer the already-made taste to homemade.  Example:  My husband and kids prefer boxed brownies to homemade.  Yes, they're odd that way!! (ha ha!)

So, here is the recipe.  Not a low calorie dessert.  Skip counting the points.  You'll break the calculator :).  Just eat it and enjoy.  Do an extra lap or a few more (okay a LOT more) steps on the treadmill.  You'll be okay.

Oh, and I took it to a potluck meal yesterday.  My husband said it was great, but really rich.  I got an "amazing" from a teen and it was gone before I could get a little taste.  Gone doesn't always mean "good", but I'm taking another one to the "after the football game" student meal and I'm thinking it will be gone, too :).

Chocolate Chip, Oreo, Brownie, Fudge Bars

1 package chocolate chip cookie dough (regular size - not large size) (homemade cookie dough can be used, if desired)
1 package Double-Stuf Oreo Cookies (you'll have some to eat/spare)
1 family-sized package brownie mix (oil, eggs, and water as per directions)
1 jar hot fudge sauce (The homemade hot fudge sauce recipe on our blog is great!  Search for it on the home page.)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Line 9 x 13 inch pan with waxed paper (I didn't do this step, but it would have made it easier to cut and remove.) Allow cookie dough to get a little softened then press it into a 9 x 13 inch pan.  Layer Oreos across bottom - not touching.  Mix brownies up according to package directions.  Pour over Oreos.  Bake for 45-55 minutes (mine took 45 minutes and usually my oven is slow).  Pour hot fudge sauce over brownie layer.  Serve with ice cream, if desired.

I've tried a couple of these recipes too, and for some reason don't care for the combination. Weird, coming from a self-professed chocoholic.
