While surfing the net recently (do people still use that phrase?), I came across this recipe and thought it looked delicious. But I love to put my own little spin on recipes I try, so I changed it up just a bit (using fudge covered cookies, rather than plain). Here's what you'll need:
1 box chocolate chip cookie mix, 17.5 oz. (mine came in a bag)
1 box fudge brownie mix, 19.9 oz.
1 stick butter (1/2 cup)
½ cup vegetable oil
¼ cup water
15 fudge covered Oreo cookies
(or regular Oreo cookies)
1 glass of White Merlot (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray, bottom only, of a 7.5" x 10" glass baking pan.
Melt 1 stick of butter in a bowl. Add chocolate chip cookie mix and 1 egg. Stir until well combined and spread in the bottom of the glass baking pan.
Layer the Oreo cookies on top of the unbaked cookie mix.
In the same bowl (washing the bowl would be needless work…it's all good stuff in there!), add the brownie mix, the vegetable oil, 2 eggs and the water. Stir until combined. Carefully spread the brownie batter overtop of the Oreo cookies. Make the batter all nice and level.
Bake for 55-65 minutes, or until the brownies are done to your liking. Some people like their brownies more moist. This is GREAT warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream!
The original recipe calls for a 45 minute baking time. When I baked them for only 45 minutes, the cookie batter was cooked through, but the brownie batter was raw. Some people might like that; I do not. I made a second batch, increasing the baking time to 60 minutes.
Oh, and the glass of wine? Well, that's for the cook!
