Oreo Brownie Cookie Bars

Have you ever had trouble deciding whether to make cookies or brownies? These 3 layer bars are sure to satisfy your sweet tooth with a chocolate chip cookie base, a layer of Oreos, and a layer of brownies on top! What could be a better combo?
This weekend, my younger sister came to visit me at college, and we decided to spend one night baking. I had heard about this recipe before, and since my sister loves anything and everything with chocolate and Oreos, I figured we would give this recipe a try. These bars were very easy to make, and they taste just as good as they look in the photo! Some recipes tell you to make your own brownie batter, but we took a shortcut and used a box mix. You could probably use store bought cookie dough too, but we went with homemade!

  2. Made this to RAVE reviews from my book club and office - as a time/money saver, I bet pre-made cookie dough would work too! Thanks for the recipe!
