Triple Layer Cookies and Cream Crunch Bars

Yeah. If that doesn’t sound good, then I don’t know what does.I saw these on How Sweet It Is and I could not pass it up. I mean I would’ve just reached into my computer and devoured them, but now I know that doesn’t really work out so well. So I made it at home, fine by me! That way I get to taste test every test, you know-just to make sure it’s safe.I think it’s safe to say that they’re amazing. But I may just have to try the rest, to be sure.Ah well this recipe finished up my package of Oreos, and as you may know that would normally be a tragedy but now I’ve got something that (dare I say it?) is better.And if you’re new around here you should know that along with my many other obsessions, I absolutely can NOT get enough of peanut butter. I may or may not have been known to eat it by spoonfuls out of the jar. Don’t judge. So I obviously got some of that good stuff in here! Thank good Jess over at how sweet it is can read my mind and make recipes that make me happier than Charlie Sheen and winning. (has that phase of that phrase passed over yet?)Yeah, well if these pictures haven’t done you in yet, then I’m not sure what will. Seriously though…THESE WILL ROCK YOUR WORLD!

Triple Layer Cookies and Cream Crunch Bars

(adapted from How Sweet It Is)

1/2 c. butter, room temperature

1 1/2 c. white sugar

2 eggs

2 t. vanilla extract

1 1/4 c. flour

1/4 t. salt

4 T. cocoa powder

2 c. chocolate chips

1/2 c. peanut butter

20 Oreo Cookies

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Butter and flour an 8×8 pan.
  2. Cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, then add vanilla. Add in cocoa powder and mix until combined. Add flour and salt, mixing until it is all smooth and comes together. Fold in 1/2 c. chocolate chips (I used chopped up dark chocolate).
  3. Spread in prepared pan. Lightly press 9 Oreo cookies into the batter. Bake for 25-30 minutes. While baking, crush the remaining Oreos in a plastic baggy. When brownies are finished baking, remove from the oven and sprinkle with 1/2 c. chocolate chips and crushed Oreos. Place back in oven for 2-3 minutes. During this time, melt the rest of the chocolate (I used dark chocolate again for this) and 1/2 c. peanut butter together. Remove brownies from oven and pour melted chocolate mixture over top, spreading until completely covered. Make sure chocolate gets all the way down in the cracks, because it helps everything stick together! Refrigerate for 2 hours before serving.
  4. Store in container in fridge.

Anybody wanna send me some Oreos?
