Slutty Brownies {Cake} (Rated PG)

I promise, I did not create the name for these; therefore, it is also obvious that this recipe is not a result of my trial and error (but rather, a result of my ENDLESS amount of internet browsing).  Anyone feel like venturing a guess as to how these INSANELY DELICIOUS little slices of PURE INDULGENCE got their name?  Scroll to the end for the answer {whoah, whoah… not yet.  srsly?}  Anyway, I’ve been a little lax on picture taking throughout my dessert ventures…life these days tends to move like a treadmill whose “increase speed button” is stuck… but in a good way.  You may also note that some of my recent recipes are using pre-made components.  During any other time, that would go against my religion, primarily because baking for me is a total escape…a stress reliever.  Unfortunately for those in my household, washing dishes is not.  The longer I bake, the less I do chores… am I making myself clear here?  However, the tide is shifting a bit and as life clips along, I’ve learned that accepting a little kick-start from pre-made materials works sometimes… this my loves, is one of those times.

This is another one of my “assembly” based desserts… and let me tell you – you best assemble this with a nice scoop of vanilla ice cream when you serve.  “Holy Cannoli” as my oldest would belt out… you may think that this is not great for your waistline, but I can assure you:  This is a MIRACLE for your soul.

One more note… most recipes call for these to be made and sliced in true brownie fashion.  I opt for the cake.  Make this in a springform pan and bring on a cake plate with confectioner’s sugar dusted on top.  I’ll mention again: dusting confectioner’s sugar on any dessert will automatically make it look MUCH better.  Great job – you just took this from lame-o brownies, to fancy cake.  sort of.  but go with it.

Slutty Brownie Cake

ingredients.

  • Bag/box of chocolate chip cookie mix.
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil.
  • Whatever ingredients that box/bag calls for.
  • Bag of oreo cookies (go wild with Double Stuff if you’ve had a particularly bad day… or get yourself a bottle of wine for that…or both)
  • Bag/box of brownie mix.
  • Whatever ingredients that box/bag calls for.

directions.

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Prepare the cookie mix.
  • Add in that extra tbsp of oil. (the cookies are going to cook longer than they typically call for… the oil will help with moisture).
  • In a separate bowl, prepare the brownie mix.
  • Grease any type of pan that floats your boat… non-stick spray works just fine.
  • Time to bring in the kids, or make this yourself so you don’t have to share the oreos.
  • Press the cookie mix into an even layer in the bottom of the pan.
  • Next, arrange the oreo cookies of the cookie dough in a single layer.
  • Cover with brownie mix.
  • Bake for 30-35 minutes.

notes:

  • much like women, these get better with a little bit of age (we do, right?! pat yourself on the back… you deserve it).  although you can eat right away, i let them cool, then refrigerate overnight and heat in the oven for about 15 minutes at approx. 150-200 degrees right before serving.  you would NOT want to miss out on the ooey/gooey factor of this gem.
  • as I mentioned before, you can slice and serve like brownies.  i however, think the cake slice makes me feel more fancy…. while i sit in my fat-girl sweatpants and enjoy the night away.
  • why are they called slutty brownies?  they are easy, dirty and full of sin.
