Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

11 Aug

Oreo’s stuffed in a chocolate chip cookie? Everything about this sounds amazing. And they really are. One bite and its easy to fall in love. Crunchy on the outside but moist inside, decadent, and chocolatey. YUM! These are also so easy to make. You can actually get away with only having one per day since they are so big! One a day is definitely enough.. ok maybe two ūüôā

PS I brought grandmother some of these and she called them pregnant cookies. I laughed way too hard at this!

10 oz bag of milk chocolate chips
1 bag of Oreo cookies (she used double stuff)

Instructions
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a mixer, cream softened butter and both sugars until well combined. Add in eggs and vanilla until well combined. In a separate bowl mix the flour, salt and baking soda. Slowly add to wet ingredients along with chocolate chips until just combined. Using a cookie scoop take one scoop of cookie dough and place on top of an Oreo Cookie. Take another scoop of dough and place on bottom of Oreo Cookie. Seal the edges together by pressing and cupping in hand until Oreo Cookie is enclosed with dough. Place onto a cookie sheet with parchment paper and bake cookies 9-13 minutes or until cookies are golden brown. These things are HUGE! Enjoy!

22 Jul

Ok – so i had a really big oreo craving, and cheesecake…. and red velvet – uhhh………… ok my sweet tooth is on an all time high – and after my crumb cake flop last week I found this recipe for these brownies. It was a super rough week with interviews and being that its friday I wanted to make something that would be a good sweet end to my week.

I have to give Bridezilla props for this recipe – it’s all hers. and i cant express how phenomenal it is! and easy! i think EVERYONE should try to make this. It was effortless… seriously! and talk about good

Here’s the link: Red Velvet Cheesecake Brownies with Oreo Cookie Crust
Oreo Cookie Crust Layer

  • 25 crushed¬†Oreo cookies
  • 4 tablespoons melted¬†butter

Red Velvet Brownie Layer:

  • 1 stick¬†unsalted butter
  • 1 cup¬†sugar
  • 1 teaspoon¬†vanilla extract
  • ¬ľ cup plus 2 tablespoons¬†cocoa powder
  • Pinch¬†salt
  • 1 tablespoon¬†red food coloring
  • 1 teaspoon¬†vinegar
  • 2¬†eggs
  • ¬ĺ cup¬†all-purpose flour

Cream Cheese Layer:

  • 8 ounces¬†cream cheese, softened
  • ¬ľ cup¬†sugar
  • 1¬†egg
  • ¬ľ teaspoon¬†vanilla extract

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line an 8 by 8-inch baking pan with tin foil; spray the foil with baking or nonstick cooking spray and set aside.

Crust: In a small bowl, mix together crushed cookie crumbs with melted butter until combined; press into the bottom of the prepared pan.

Brownie layer: In the microwave, melt the butter. Pour the butter into a large bowl and add the sugar, vanilla, cocoa powder, salt, food coloring, and vinegar, in that order, whisking together between additions.

In a small bowl, beat the¬†eggs¬†lightly with a fork and fold them into the cocoa mix. Fold in the¬†flour¬†until lightly combined. Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan, saving ¬ľ cup of the batter for the top.

Cream cheese layer: In a medium bowl or in the bowl of a stand mixer, beat together the cream cheese, sugar, egg, and vanilla. Remember to scrape down the edges of the bowl frequently to fully incorporate the cream cheese.

Gently spread the cream cheese layer on top of the brownie batter in the pan ‚Äď I find that an offset (icing) spatula works well for this step. Dollop the remaining brownie batter over the cream cheese layer. Using a skewer or the tip of a knife, drag the tip through the cream cheese mixture to create a swirl pattern, being careful not to disturb the Oreo layer.

Bake the brownies for 30 minutes. Remove to a cooling rack and allow them to cool completely before cutting.”
