What Kind of Brownies?

I love brownies. Sometimes you come across a brownie with a name that just piques your curiosity. This is one of those recipes.

Brownies + Oreos + Blondies (aka Slutty Brownies with White Chocolate Chips)


Blondie layer:

8 tablespoons butter, melted
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 and 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
Pinch of salt
1/2 cup to 1 cup chocolate chips

Oreo layer:

1 package of Oreo cookies

Brownine layer:

1 and 1/2 cups sugar
3/4 cup cocoa
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2/3 cup butter
1/2 cup boiling water
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 eggs
1 cup flour
Pinch of salt
1/2 to 1 cup white chocolate chips

Use one 9x9 square baking dish.

Makes 16-20 brownies


Blondie layer:

With electric mixer, beat melted butter with brown sugar until smooth. Add eggs and vanilla extract and continue beating.

In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and salt. Add to the butter mixture and beat just until combined, without over-mixing. Stir in chocolate chips.

Brownie layer:

Mix sugar, cocoa, and baking soda in a medium bowl. Add melted butter to the mixture of dry ingredients, whisking to combine. Add boiling water and stir to combine and thicken the mixture. Add vanilla and eggs, beating with the electric mixer to blend ingredients together. Add flour and salt and stir until just combined. Avoid over-mixing. Stir in white chocolate chips.


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Line the bottom and sides of a 9x9-inch baking pan with aluminum foil. Grease the foil with cooking spray.

Layer the blondie cookie dough on the bottom of the baking pan. Layer a single layer of Oreos on top of the blondie cookie dough. Pour the brownie batter over the Oreo layer. Break some Oreos into smaller pieces and sprinkle them over the top of the brownie layer.

Bake for 35 minutes or until set on top in the middle. Be careful to avoid over-baking. Cool on rack before cutting into slices.

Notes: These brownies were so yummy...they were really rich. They were also really, really thick. I think you could make them in a pan that is bigger than a 9x9-inch baking pan. I'll have to experiment with that though.
