Oreo Cookie Surprises
Oreo Cookie Surprises rock! What’s not to love about Oreos stuffed in the middle of one of the most sensational chocolate chip cookie dough recipes you’ve ever tasted? Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies are all over the web, but I didn’t have time to bake cookies, I needed to make bars instead.
So, I took the idea of putting Oreo cookies in the middle of my Mrs. Field’s Chocolate Chip Cookie Copycat Recipe and the rest is history. John took several batches of these as gifts recently and without exception they received high praise! The only change I made in the chocolate chip cookie base is to use one package of chocolate chunks in the dough instead of one-and-a-half bags of chocolate chips which is what the copycat recipe calls for. Still, there was enough chocolate in this tasty recipe for any sweet tooth!
These delicious brownies have it all–a nice crunch from the cookie and the Oreo in the middle, a tasty vanilla cream frosting from the Oreo itself, lots of chocolate from the Oreos and chocolate chips and, of course, plenty of sugar which makes all of it incredibly good. 🙂 Certainly, these marvelous brownies with the Oreo Cookie Surprise in the middle are great for tailgating or Superbowl parties. But these brownies are also a tasty treat for your family, coworkers, and friends! I’d highly recommend them for holiday baking–especially for something like Valentine’s Day!
If you’re looking for a superb brownie with rich, Oreo taste, then consider making up a batch of Oreo Cookie Surprises the next time you have a chance. Everyone who had one of these fantastic bars just raved over them and you will too! Really, it’s hard to improve upon Mrs. Field’s Chocolate Chip Cookie Copycat Recipe and Oreo cookies! They go together so wonderfully.
Baking Oreo cookies into bars is a lot easier than making individual cookies, too. So next time you need a chocolate fix, give these scrumptious brownies a try! Better make that two batches…. 😉
When I initially posted this recipe in January 2014, I wasn’t particularly happy with my pictures. They were okay but the light and color were off. I recently remade these fabulous bars (May 2015) and took a few new pictures. Our Friday night Care Group loved these bars. There’s nothing like having an Oreo in the middle of the best Chocolate Chip Cookie dough ever!
Oreo Cookie Surprises will surprise everyone with the tasty Oreo Cookie hidden away inside each bar.
Chocolate lover’s will love these amazing brownies.
This close up shows the texture of the brownie and the hidden “surprise” in each one! It is hard to stop at one–or two–or three….You know what I mean.
Here’s what I did.
I used these ingredients.
In a mixing bowl place sugar, brown sugar, softened butter, baking powder, baking soda, salt, vanilla and eggs.
Mix with an electric mixer until smooth.
Add UNBLEACHED all-purpose flour. Bleached flour toughens baked goods. Add chocolate chunks.
Stir with a wooden spoon to combine.
Spray a glass 9×13″ baking dish with cooking spray. Spread and press down half of the cookie dough into the dish. I had to keep my hands moist in order to get the dough patted into the dish.
Place Oreo cookies over top in a 4×6 pattern for 24 cookies.
Spread remaining cookie dough over top of the Oreos and press down.
Bake at 350 for 40-45 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely before cutting into bars.
Oreo Cookie Surprises are filled with chocolate chunks which adds such a rich, chocolaty flavor to each one.
These brownies give you the best of both worlds–chocolate chip cookies and Oreo cookies. Yum. Your kids will gobble these terrific brownies up in a flash.
