A few weeks ago I was perusing the interwebs, mainly pinterest, because it’s my latest obsession and I spend an inordinate amount of time pinning things that I want to eat, and things that I want at my wedding. I’m not quite sure how people planned weddings before Pinterest. It’s kinda the greatest invention of all times. But while I was knee deep in my wedding pinning extravaganza, I stumbled across something called Slutty Brownies.
Clearly these caught my attention immediately. They are the brilliant creation of The Londoner, who is just pretty much awesome. Basically it’s a super brownie made with layers of cookie dough, oreo cookies, and then a rich and decadent brownie layer. They are totally slutty brownies. Or I guess they could easily be “I just got dumped brownies.”
So basically after I found these I made them approximately 23 times. Okay so maybe it was 12 times, but the moral of the story is that these are just downright awesome. My fabulous friend Koko and I decided that these are best eaten by oneself, with a spoon, perhaps a glass of bubbly rose and some trashy TV (I recommend the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills or Shameless). They are decadent. One small bite will be enough to satisfy any sweet tooth.
You could easily make these with box mix, which is what the original recipe I found calls for, but I took it one step further and made these with my all time favorite rich chocolatly brownie recipe and my favorite chocolate chip cookie dough recipe. The oreo in the middle may seem slightly out of place because you might think it’s going to be this crunchy layer between two super soft and chewy layers, but let me reassure you that it’s not. The oreo kind of soaks up a bit of moisture from the brownie batter and cookie dough and just adds that extra bit of fabulousness.
So basically you’ve got to make these. They will change your life. The first 2 times I made these, I cut them right away to serve them and they kinda fell apart a bit since they were still crazy warm, and that’s totally one way to go. If you’re serving them fresh out of the oven, add a scoop of vanilla ice cream just for another layer of decadence and serve away. If you’re going to let them sit for a few hours, you’ll get a super gorgeous cut square and can grab it and go. Either way, they are awesome.
