Lots to Love brownies use chocolate chip cookie dough, chocolate sandwich cookies and brownie mix to create a chocolaty treat perfect for Valentine’s Day.
I am not a big sweets eater. I can usually skip dessert. There’s only one type of chocolaty treat that makes my will to pass on dessert absolutely crumble – brownies. Brownies are my absolute weakness and I just happen to be married to one hell of a brownie master! Watching him make brownies is like lady porn. Hand me a brownie and it’s like “Mmm. Oh yeah. Give it to me now.” My love for brownies is hardcore, people.
I recently saw a post on Food Network’s Facebook page that took my love of brownies to a whole new level. They posted the ménage à trois of brownie recipes that has a layer of chocolate chip cookie dough, chocolate sandwich cookies and brownie mix. So while preparing for our last ice storm, I bought the essentials – chocolate chip cookie dough, Red Velvet Cake Oreos and brownie mix. If you’re going to be stuck indoors, you might as well be stuck with something good!
I used a simple Betty Crocker chocolate chip cookie mix for my bottom layer. Use your favorite recipe or premade cookie dough. Because it’s Valentine’s Day, I used Red Velvet Cake Oreos as my second layer. Any Oreo cookie will do. I can’t wait to try this recipe again once the S’mores Oreos hit store shelves (it’s happening)! My husband and I had a debate as to what brownie mix he usually uses (he didn’t even remember) so I went with Betty Crocker’s fudge brownie mix.
- Brownie mix
- Chocolate chip cookie dough mix, or prepared cookie dough
- Oreo cookies
- Preheat oven according to your brownie mix.
- Grease a 9x9x2 brownie pan and set aside.
- Prepare your chocolate chip cookie dough and press into the bottom of the brownie pan.
- Next, gently press a layer of Oreo cookies into the chocolate chip cookie mix.
- Prepare brownie mix and pour over cookie layers.
- Bake brownies for 45 minutes or until middle is set.
- Allow to cool before cutting.
It’s pretty obscene how good these brownies are! I’ve been eating them one half at a time because they’re big and they’re sweet. I shared some with family and my husband’s been taking them to work with him. Even the brownie master said these brownies are really good! That’s a major compliment!
There is definitely a lot to love inside each layer of these brownies. Share them with someone you love for Valentine’s Day! Enjoy!
