Trashy Temptation: Slutty Brownies

Oh my goodness. I don’t think there is anything on earth more unhealthy than this, save for just eating a stick of butter on its own. You have a chocolate chip cookie, an oreo, and a fudgy brownie that all decided to get together and produce the unthinkable, the slutty brownie. I wonder where the name comes from. Is it due to the unforgiving amounts of butter and sugar used or is it the ridiculous idea of putting three tasty treats together to create a square of death? Whatever it is, let it be known that I did not create these brownies. I first came across them while browsing this wonderful blog known as Handle the Heat, probably so named because the writer, a young woman named Tessa, lives in the boiling hot city of Phoenix. Anyways, I saw these goodies on her blog and I was like, “I have to make these!” However, Tessa is not the inventor of these either, as she saw them on some other blog. After looking into that blog, I have discovered that these brownies have some sort of internet craze in the blogging world for a while, so I guess we will never know who truly created these. What does matter though, is how they taste, and I have to say that you are either gonna hate it or love it. First you will definitely hate yourself for making them. They have enough butter in them to compete with any recipe of Paula Deen’s, and the sugar content is off the chain! Let’s also mention that they are whole DOUBLE-STUFFED oreos (aka the most unhealthy kind) floating around between the cookie and brownie layers, and you may even get some negative reception first. My entire family thought I had gone mad.

When you get past all the negatives though and actually eat a slutty brownie, there is no turning back. They are fudgy, gooey,chewy, and oh so buttery! You are practically taking three american classics: the chocolate chip cookie, the oreo, and the brownie, and getting an opportunity to eat them all at once. The flavors meld together beautifully, and after eating this trifecta of chocolate perfection, you are probably going to feel like a trashy piece of garbage, but believe me temptation is going to have you begging for more.

Recipe: Slutty Brownies

Recipe from: Handle the Heat

Makes 16 THICK brownies (please cut into smaller pieces)

Brownie Layer

  • 10 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour

Oreo Layer

  • 16 double-stuffed oreos

Cookie Layer

  • 2 sticks unsalted butter (16 tablespoons), softened at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

Method:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees farenheit. Line a 9X9 inch pan with tin foil and grease the foil after that with nonstick cooking spray.

For the Cookie Layer: Cream the butter and sugars together in a mixer at a medium speed until light and fluffy. Add the eggs and vanilla and beat until well incorporated. Add the flour, salt, baking powder, and baking soda and mix until well incorporated. Fold in the chocolate chips.

For the Brownie Layer: Combine the melted butter with sugar and cocoa powder in a mixer on medium speed. Add the salt, vanilla, and eggs and whisk until incorporated. Add the flour and mix until combined.

Assembly: Place half of the cookie dough mixture into the prepared pan and create an even layer. Then take the oreos and press them slightly into the cookie dough. Place the brownie batter on top and spread it evenly over the entire pan. Bake the slutty brownies for about 30-35 minutes, or until a knife comes out mostly clean. Allow the brownies to cool completely and then cut into squares.

Cooking Notes: 

  • You can use regular oreos if you want, but with a recipe like this, you might as well go all out!
  • Because I am a little bit of an idiot, I ended up putting all of the cookie dough mixture into the brownies instead of only half of it. The result, as you can see in the pictures is a rather thick cookie cake layer. It still tastes delicious, but if you would like your brownies to be a bit normal, than I would suggest putting only half of the cookie dough. Save the rest for making chocolate chip cookies or better yet, cookie dough truffles!
