Heads or Tails Oreo Bars

31 Oct

Hi again!

I made blondies today!!

I made brownies today, too!!

I put Oreos in the middle, baked them together, and made Heads or Tails Oreo Bars!! 

I know, I know….I love you too!!

Lately, I am totally obsessed with the Oreo section of the cookie aisle.  There are Mint Oreos, Peanut Butter Oreos, Berry Oreos, Neapolitan Oreos, Gingerbread Oreos, Candy Cane Oreos (which I can’t find!!), Triple Double Oreos, (SERIOUSLY!?!) and the list goes on and on. 

When I found the Heads or Tails Oreos, I was totally psyched!!  Golden and Traditional Oreos all in one…and Double-Stuffed to boot!!  Woo-Hoooo!

I’ve been wanting to make a brownie topped blondie for a while, and these gave me the perfect excuse!!

They are really easy.  I made the first batch and baked it all together at the same time…..they took forever to bake, and they didn’t look so pretty.  So, I started over, and this is what I came up with…..

I made the blondies, and baked them first!  Not completely…. just a few minutes to give them a little head start!

Top the blondies with Oreos!

Pretty brilliant, huh??  Ok…..now for the brownies!!

Bake!

They look pretty awesome when you cut them, and they taste even better!

Heads or Tails Oreo Bars

     For the blondies

  • 1/2 cup  unsalted butter (1 stick), melted
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp. salt

–  Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.  Spray an 11 x 7 in. pan with cooking spray, set aside.

–  In a medium mixing bowl, cream butter, sugar and egg until well mixed.

–  Sift  flour, baking powder and salt into creamed mixture.  Mix until completely combined. 

–  Spread into the bottom of the prepared pan.  Bake for 12 minutes. 

–  Remove pan from oven and immediately press 15 Oreos into the blondies.  (They should only be half-baked at this point.)

     For the brownies (prepare while blondies are baking) *adapted from Allrecipes.com “Best Brownies”

  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. baking powder

–  In a medium mixing bowl, cream butter, sugar and egg.

–  Sift cocoa powder, flour, salt and baking powder into creamed mixture.  Mix until completely combined.

–  Spread evenly over the Oreo-topped-blondies. 

–  Bake for 25 minutes, or until the middle of the brownies are set.  Do not over bake, they will firm up a little bit as they cool. 

–  Allow to cool before cutting.

Keep in mind….the blondies and brownies can be made on their own!  Just throw some white chocolate chips in the blondie batter and you are good to go.  Same with the brownies, and they are excellent iced, as well!! 

But, these really take the cake……(or the bar?)!

Enjoy!!

Love, Lara
