Monday Menu ~ The Ultimate Brownie

Last week the girls and I were home alone since the husband was off working in Georgia for a client and they wanted me to make brownies. Now, they weren’t asking for the regular run of the mill type brownie. No… they wanted something different. Something special. Something full of cookies.

What could be better than chocolate chip cookies, oreo’s, and brownies all mixed together into one special bar? Well, nothing really. Of course we didn’t just mix it all together we layered them! I think that the only thing that could make them better is a scoop of vanilla ice cream and some hot fudge.

The ultimate brownie is really easy to make and are pretty simple to change up by using different cookies or other flavored Oreo’s (like the fudge filled ones for the ultimate double/triple chocolate brownie).

Alright, so let’s start with the ingredients.

  • 2 packages of ready to bake cookies
  • Oreo’s
  • Brownie mix 13×9 pan size (plus ingredients to make them)
ultimate brownie ingredients
Making these are simple.
Pre-heat the over to 350 degrees & spray your 13×9 pan with cooking spray.
Press cookies into the pan making sure that you fully and evenly cover the bottom of the pan.

Now, here comes the fun part. You can place the Oreo’s on top of the cookie dough whole or you can do what we did. Crush them up and spread them all over.

Kids are great at helping with this part…. as long as they don’t eat all the cookies. Oh… This is where I mention that we just crushed cookies until we felt that there was enough on top of the cookie dough.
Make the brownies according to the directions on the box.

Pour all of the brownie batter on top of the Oreo’s and cookie dough.

Make sure that you spread the batter as evenly as you can over top of the cookies and put them in the oven to bake for about 30 – 35 minutes or until the brownies are done. Be careful to not over cook them! It’s better to have them a little under done.

Now look at that…. that is the ultimate brownie! These are incredible warm out of the oven when they’re still a little gooey but trust me on this one… you can barely eat one because they’re so rich and sinful.
What do you think? Are you going to try the ultimate brownie?
