Slutty Brownies – Updated

These treats are everything you could want them to be and more: part chocolate chip cookie, part brownie, part Oreo, and 100% decadent.Slutty Brownies | A Nerd Cooks

My only beef with these treats is the name.  Come on now.  Judge our desserts not by their extracurricular activities.  Can’t they just live?

Slightly judgmental name or no, these brownies are amazing.  No doubt about that.  They’re a mash-up of some classic treats, and somehow the whole is greater than the sum of its delicious parts.  Make them and you will not be sorry.  Neither will your coworkers with whom you share them.Slutty Brownies | A Nerd Cooks

Continuing with my theme of late, I had blogged about these Slutty Brownies a while back, but this recipe was in serious need of a face lift.  I used a combination of this recipe for the cookie layer and this one for the brownie layer.

You’ll need:

For the cookie layer –

  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups chocolate chips
  • 24 Double Stuffed Oreo cookies

For the brownie layer – 

  • 4 eggs
  • 1 1/4 cups cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tbs vanilla extract
  • 2 sticks unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly
  • 2 1/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.  Line a 9×13-inch baking pan with foil.  Spray the foil with cooking spray.  Set it aside.

First, you’ll make the cookie layer.  In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, baking soda, and baking powder.  Set aside.

In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream the butter and sugars together until light and fluffy.  Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing thoroughly between additions, followed by the vanilla extract.

Add the dry ingredients, little by little, to the wet.  Scrape down the sides of the bowl as necessary.  Mix in the chocolate chips.

Press the cookie dough into the bottom of the prepared baking dish in an even layer.  Top with the Oreo cookies, pressing them into the dough slightly.

To make the brownie layer, mix the eggs, cocoa powder, salt, baking powder, and vanilla extract together in a medium bowl.  This is actually surprisingly difficult to do.  Mix things together as well as you can.

Add the granulated sugar to the melted butter and stir until combined.  Add the butter/sugar to the cocoa/egg mixture and stir until combined.

Add the flour, stirring until the flour just disappears and everything is smooth.  Spread the brownie batter over the Oreo and chocolate chip cookie layers.

Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the center.  Cool completely before cutting into squares.

  1. they turned out great once I looked back at the brownie recipe you referenced. When you transposed the ingredients for the brownies the granulated sugar didn’t make the list. I made mine in cup cake tins and it turned out phenomenal for people who like edges. Thank you

    • Eek, thank you for letting me know! I’ll fix that ASAP.

      And I’m so glad that they turned out well! The edges are my favorite part, so I’ll definitely have to make them in cupcake tins =)
