The Super Brownie

One glass for you, one glass for me!
Go grab a glass of mild and get ready because this post is full of rich and tasty Super Brownies!

Right before BBF came, I had made box brownies.  When I mentioned this in a chat, she stated that we NEEDED to bake together, we always bake together.  I had a bunch of stuff to bake so I said okay!  I'm always up for baking.  We knew we wanted to bake oatmeal chocolate chip cookies - my signature cookies - and banana bread since I had a bunch of bananas in my freezer.  I thought it would be fun to also bake something we had never baked before so I went searching.  While searching, I found these.  Yes, those are Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookie 'n Oreo Fudge Brownie Bars!  :P  While looking at the recipe, I figured we could make them "dorm room style."  What I mean by "dorm room style" is cheap and quick!  So, instead of making cookie dough or brownies, we bought cookie dough and brownie mix.  We also decided to not add any fudge since being so high in altitude, it probably would have affected the baking time.  So since we were changing up the recipe, we decided to change the name since "Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookie 'n Oreo Fudge Brownie Bar" is way too long to say with one breath!  We thought on it for a few minutes and BBF decided on Super Brownies which worked perfectly.  Short, descriptive - because they ARE super - and perfect!

So we went out and bought all that I didn't already have and put these brownies together.  First we sprayed the pan and spread the cookie dough on the bottom of the pan.  We only bought a small roll of cookie dough and looking back, we should have gotten the bigger roll.  Or cut the roll up into rounds and put them down on the bottom instead of just spreading it out.  Doing it this way didn't really cover evenly, but it worked in the end.

The next step was to place the Oreo's on top of the cookie dough.  We got double stuffed Oreo's like the recipe calls for, but while we were there, we saw a bunch of different Oreo's out now.  These would have been awesome with vanilla Oreo's or even the mint Oreo's.  Or even the colored Oreo's that come out during the holidays!  
 

The next step is to mix up the brownie mix.  We spent like 20 minutes deciding which kind of brownie mix to by.  Eventually we settled on a dark chocolate mix with chips because it was on sale and we figured the dark chocolate wouldn't make the brownie too sweet with everything else in the brownie.  Lastly, pour the brownie over the Oreo's and pop the whole thing in a 350 degree oven for about 45-50 minutes.  Check for done-ness (yes it's a word!) buy poking a toothpick in the center trying to avoid the Oreo's.  When the toothpick is clean, the brownie is done!  Just let cool enough to handle and cut into that awesome creation!



 
 

Those white lines are the insides of the Oreo's...OMG so good!  Grab a glass of milk or some ice cream, pop in you latest Netfilx DVD and ENJOY!  :)

 
 

My roommate and I are making plans to create this beautiful treat.

I want that in my mouth right now.

I've been wanting to try this for a while as well, but at the same time... I think I might die of pleasure if I do.

they look like they are clenching their teeth at me!

ive just sent this to my best friend via email with the note: Our next movie night. YES.

:D

I hate being a newly diagnosed diabetic right now so much. -_-;

I've been diabetic for four years now and this is making me cry. ;__________;

I bake for my diabetic friends. Try some of the Splenda for baking - it's not quite the same as sugar (I can taste the difference), but it will give you a similar taste and mouthfeel.

If you like peanut butter cookies, I know one that works perfectly! AND, it's gluten free.

Good luck with the new diet and stuffs!

Hi!

1 C sugar (or Splenda, if you're diabetic)
1 C peanut butter (I use chunky, but YMMV)
1 egg
1 T vanilla

Preheat oven to 350F. Mix all ingredients (I use my hands to mix the first two ingredients, then a spoon for the last two. It's very tempting to just turn the oven off and eat the peanut butter/sugar mixture. Mmmmm....)

Roll the cookie dough into teaspoon sized balls (or tablespoon. Again, YMMV.) and flatten on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet. Bake for 10 - 12 minutes. The cookies are done when the tops look opaque, but the cookies are still a bit soft. If you like crispier peanut butter cookies, go the full 12 minutes.

...

Now I want peanut butter cookies.

ETA: These are good with inclusions - roughly chopped nuts, hershey's kisses stuck in the center, bakable candies, but they might not be gluten free, so be careful. *grin*

I'm gonna make these for the hordes of stoners always at my house

I would have used peanut butter oreos. Oh yes.

I made these recently for my D&D game night at a friend's house. The entire pan was gone in minutes, literally! I had to stop at one because I'm diabetic, but I seriously could have eaten the entire pan, they were that fucking good! I also bought pre-made cookie dough (I used two packs of the Nestle ones that are already cut into 24 cookie bricks and laid them side by side and smooshed em all together) as well as boxed brownie mix, cause I'm all uber lazy like that :P It was still fantastic!

This puts my 4am brownie abortion to shame. Well done. I will be making these next "babies are asleep let's be productive" time.

A little too rich for me, but my cousin would love this and think it's the greatest thing ever.
