This dessert was made for my dear sister in Christ, Jill Higginbotham, after she had hernia surgery. I deviated from the recipe a tad by using peanut butter oreos instead of the regular oreos. Actually, I made two batches (one for Jill and one for my father-in-law for his birthday!). One batch was made with vanilla creme and one batch was made with peanut butter creme.
All the ingredients needed.
The twins were my little helpers. LILAH ate more than she helped.
Jax ate a little, but he was my biggest helper!

He LOVES to help! This was really one of their first times baking something from scratch with me. When it was just Tyson and I, we baked all the time together. By this age, he had already baked 20+ desserts with me. That's the difference between having one child and having three :(
There she goes again eating the ingredients instead of using them to help make this dessert.
Peanut butter and vanilla oreos.
Make a chocolate chip cookie dough. Spread it on the bottom of a 9x13 inch pan line with parchment paper.
Top the cookie dough with oreos.
And then a brownie mix!

AND walaa!!!!!!!!!!!

Top with hot fudge and vanilla ice cream. MMMMMMMMM! Makes my mouth water.

1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup light brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 Tablespoon pure vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups (12 ounces) milk chocolate chips
1 pkg Double Stuffed Oreos
1 Family Size (9×13) Brownie mix
1/4 cup hot fudge topping

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cream the butter and both sugars in a large bowl with an electric mixer on medium speed for 3-5 minutes. Add the eggs and vanilla and mix well to thoroughly combine. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt, then slowly incorporate into the mixer until the flour is just combined. Stir in chocolate chips. Spread the cookie dough in the bottom of a 9×13 baking dish that’s been lined with wax paper and sprayed with cooking spray. Top with a layer of Oreos. Mix together brownie mix, adding an optional 1/4 cup of hot fudge topping to the mix. Pour the brownie batter over the cookie dough and Oreos. Bake at 350 degrees F for 45-55 minutes.

To half this recipe for an 8×8 brownie mix, just half the chocolate chip cookie dough ingredients. Enjoy!
