Ultimate Cookie Brownie Bar

My younger sister is getting married in March. I got to go wedding dress shopping with her. I think we went to about six different stores before she finally decided on one. I have to say, her dress is gorgeous. Very fashion forward, but elegant at the same time. It’s very her.

I’m already married and I really did love my wedding dress but being around all those beautiful dresses made me wish I could get another one. I’m not exactly sure what for. I was never really the princess wedding dress kind of girl but I have to say, some of them were soooo pretty. It would be nice to get all dolled up and take really nice pictures in one. Sigh.

Since that won’t be happening any time soon, do you all want to see the crazy dessert that I made this weekend? Okie dokie. I’m ignoring all of you who said no.

This is definitely not for anyone on a diet.

Or anyone who doesn’t like chocolate.

If you’re on a diet AND don’t like chocolate, I’m not sure if we can be friends.

Just kidding.

We can be friends.

People on diets have cheat days, right?

That’s what I thought.

Dieters, try this on your cheat day.

It’s totally worth it.

Ultimate Cookie Brownie Bar adapted from Kevin and Amanda

Ingredients

1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
¾ cup light brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 Tablespoon pure vanilla extract
2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup bittersweet or semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup M&Ms
1 package double stuffed crème filed chocolate sandwich cookies (such as Oreos)
1 Family Size (9×13) Brownie mix (I used the recipe below)
¼  cup chocolate sauce

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350⁰F.
  2. Cream the butter and sugars in a large bowl with a hand mixer on medium speed for 3-5 minutes. Add the eggs and vanilla. Mix well to thoroughly combine.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt. Slowly add dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until just combined. Fold in chocolate chips.
  4. Spread the cookie dough in the bottom of a 9×13 baking dish that’s been lined with wax or parchment paper and sprayed with cooking spray. Top with a layer of chocolate sandwich cookies.
  5. Mix together brownie mix, adding an optional ¼ cup of chocolate sauce if desired. Pour the brownie batter over the cookie dough and chocolate sandwich cookies. Bake for 45-55 minutes.
  6. To half this recipe for an 8×8 brownie mix, just half the chocolate chip cookie dough ingredients.

  1. I smiled all day while I thought: “If you’re on a diet AND don’t like chocolate, I’m not sure if we can be friends.” I’m going to and spin around in a wide circle with a box of oreos now. Thanks for that.

    • Thanks for stopping by! I think Dulce de Leche would be amazing. I may have to do another version of this recipe and make Mexican inspired brownies for the top layer. Have an awesome day! 🙂

  2. This looks wonderful!!!! I’m thinking bout subbing nutter butters for the oreos. WOO HOOO, diet be damned (and hopefully people will eat my left overs)

    • Thanks! You totally read my mind. I was totally thinking of doing a crazy peanut butter version of this. Like substituting peanut butter chips for the M&Ms and chocolate chips, Nutter Butters for the Oreos, and a peanut butter and chocolate brownie for the top. Have an awesome day!

  4. Oh my gosh this looks amazing!!!
    Just wondering how many people it serves?? Also how long do you think it would take to make?? Hopefully I’m gonna make this for my friends birthday!
    Thank you! xx

    • Hi! I think you should be able to get at least 24 pieces out of this. More if you cut the pieces smaller. The baking time is around 45-55 minutes. I would say maybe add about half an hour or so to prep (I usually take a while to get everything together) and make everything before baking. So, perhaps give yourself about an hour and a half total from start to finish. Let me know how it turns out. Thanks for stopping by. Have an awesome day! 🙂
