How to Make Slutty Brownies
There’s some serious chocolate going on in these brownies. They’re also so easy to make:
Make the Chocolate Chip & Oreo Cookies Layers
First you are going to make the cookie layers:
- Make the chocolate chip cookie layer. Begin by whisking together the dry ingredients. In a separate bowl, beat the butter and sugars until fluffy, then mix in the egg and vanilla. Add the dry ingredients, mix, then fold in chocolate chips. Press the cookie dough into the bottom of a 9×9-inch pan lined with parchment paper.
- Add Oreos. Arrange the Oreo cookies in a single layer over top of the cookie dough.
Add the Chocolate Brownie Layer
Next, it’s time to prepare an easy brownie batter, and then get these brownies into the oven!
- Make the brownie batter. Mix the dry ingredients and wet ingredients separately, then sift the dry into the wet ingredients before stirring to combine.
- Add to the pan. Spread the brownie batter over the layer of Oreos.
- Bake. Bake your slutty brownies at 350ºF for 40-45 minutes. Check that the brownies are done by sticking a toothpick into the middle of the pan. If the toothpick comes out clean, they’re ready to come out. Let the cookies cool completely before cutting them into squares.
Can I Use Brownie Mix or Store-Bought Cookie Dough?
Absolutely. If you’re in a pinch, you can make the brownie layer using your favorite boxed brownie mix instead. Just be sure to pick up any ingredients you’ll need to make the brownies as listed on the box. You can even make the chocolate chip cookie layer with store-bought refrigerated cookie dough, too.
Try these fun and easy ways to change up the flavors in your slutty brownies:
- Peanut Butter – Make a variation with peanut butter cookie dough.
- Replace the Oreos – In place of Oreos, layer Golden Oreos. You can also try this recipe with Nilla Wafers, Chips Ahoy cookies, Graham crackers, or Maria Cookies.
- Add Frosting – Add some vanilla buttercream or even peanut butter frosting on top. The simple chocolate frosting from my zucchini brownies recipe would work too.
Slutty brownies are so easy to make and they’re always a hit at potlucks and parties. Try these fun and easy ways to serve homemade brownies:
- Warm with ice cream. A few seconds in the microwave is all it takes to turn these chocolate brownies into an ooey-gooey treat, perfect for topping with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
- Drizzled with chocolate sauce.
- Make a brownie sundae. Combine both of the ideas above into a decadent brownie sundae, complete with ice cream, whipped cream, chocolate sauce, and a cherry!
How to Store
