It was time to stop being goody two shoes and do something wicked for a change. I wanted to spoil myself with something extraordinary, be a daredevil, but not to get into trouble. What I did had trouble written all over it. It was still worth it though. So what the heck did I do? I made brownies. Not any ordinary brownies. The “slutty” brownies, “death by chocolate” brownies and “naughty” brownies from amazing blogs and even more amazing bloggers popped up everywhere I turned and called my name. I saw them on TV, on my computer, in my dreams… I had to put a stop to it once and for all. So I made them. I win. Sort of, because I’m certain I clogged my aorta with just one bar of these sinfully good brownies. What can I say, I like my brownies the way politicians like their evening company – easy, but not necessarily cheap. The thing about it is that although you know they are bad for you, when you sink your teeth into the hellishly gooey cookie & fudge and when the heavenly creamy frosting hits the roof of your mouth, all you can think of are angels. Hell meets Heaven. You might have sinned, but you feel good. Until those calories set on your hips, that is. Just eat two bars – one for each hip and you’re good to go.
Makes one 8×8 baking pan
1 box Chocolate Chunk (or chip) Cookie Mix (18 oz.)
1 box Fudge Brownie Mix (18 oz.)
16 “double stuf” Oreo Cookies
2 tablespoons Baileys Irish Cream (any flavor)
Oil (according to package directions)
¼ cup Butter or Margarine, softened
1 cup Powdered Sugar
¼ teaspoon Vanilla extract
2 tablespoons Baileys Irish Cream
2-3 tablespoons Milk
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line the bottom and sides of an 8×8 baking pan with parchment paper. I need to get a pan with straight and not rounded corners. You’d think I already owned one.
Follow directions on the cookie mix box adding just a teaspoon more of oil and water than instructed to keep it moist. Spread the cookie dough evenly over the bottom of the pan.
Cover this layer with Oreos.
Follow directions on the brownie mix adding Baileys to the batter. I used Vanilla Cinnamon flavor…sooo good. Pour the batter evenly over Oreos.
Bake brownies for 25-30 minutes or until they are set and begin to pull away from sides of pan. Do not over-bake. Cool completely before frosting.
Beat the butter in a small bowl until light and fluffy. Mix in all remaining ingredients, adding just enough milk to desired consistency. You want it to be spreadable but not too thin. Spread over cooled brownies.
Optional: Drizzle melted chocolate glaze over frosted brownies. To make chocolate glaze, melt together ¼ cup chocolate chips and 1 teaspoon butter.
Refrigerate brownies 30 minutes or until firm. Cut into bars. Serve with vanilla ice cream for the ultimate escapade.
