Chocolate Overload? I Think Not!

The other day I was looking at stuff on Pinterest and saw this recipe. When Cara heard my exclamation of joy, she rushed over to see what I was looking at and immediately stated that she was making these. Emma was spending the night and it was a prefect project for them to do.

Neither of the girls had made cookies from scratch and loved the process of seeing it come together. Next came the Oreos.

And last but not least...the brownie mix...

I know you will believe me when I say I didn't get time to take pictures before this was gone. Well, there was time, but I was eating and all...

Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookie n’ Oreo Fudge Brownie Bar from Kevin and Amanda

1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup light brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 Tablespoon pure vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups (12 ounces) milk chocolate chips
1 pkg Double Stuffed Oreos
1 Family Size (9×13) Brownie mix
1/4 cup hot fudge topping

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cream the butter and both sugars in a large bowl with an electric mixer on medium speed for 3-5 minutes. Add the eggs and vanilla and mix well to thoroughly combine. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt, then slowly incorporate into the mixer until the flour is just combined. Stir in chocolate chips. Spread the cookie dough in the bottom of a 9×13 baking dish that’s been lined with wax paper and sprayed with cooking spray. Top with a layer of Oreos. Mix together brownie mix, adding an optional 1/4 cup of hot fudge topping to the mix. Pour the brownie batter over the cookie dough and Oreos. Bake at 350 degrees F for 45-55 minutes. (Ours was 55-60 minutes)
