What are Cookie Brownie Bars (Slutty Brownies)?

These dessert bars are essentially made of three layers.

  • Chocolate chip cookies – the cookie layer is soft and chewy which melds nicely with chewy brownies.
  • Oreos – using double stuffed Oreos helps them stand out once these bars are baked and sliced up! It’s what gives them that iconic look!
  • Chewy brownies – I love a fudgy brownie, and I have a great recipe for them on the site, but ultra-chocolatey chewy brownies are my go to.

  • Flour – I used all-purpose flour. Make sure you sieve it if it looks lumpy.
  • Baking powder – helps the cookie layer rise a little.
  • Butter – Make sure your butter is softened.
  • Brown sugar – light or dark is fine.
  • Caster sugar – also known as superfine sugar is a fine sugar. If you can’t get this, granulated sugar will also work.
  • Salt – I used fine salt.
  • Vanilla ExtractAlways use good quality vanilla extract when baking, it makes a huge difference. I have a great recipe here for it if you’d like to try your own!
  • Eggs – make sure your eggs are at room temperature.
  • Chocolate Chips – Using good quality chocolate is important in this recipe. I used semi-sweet chocolate chips. You can find chocolate chips in the baking isle of your supermarket.
  • Oreos – it’s really important that you use double stuffed Oreos if you can get them because the filling is a lot clearer once everything is baked and sliced up. It’s one of the iconic parts of these dessert bars!
  • Cocoa powder – Use Dutch processed cocoa powder if you can get it. It has a much darker appearance and richer chocolate flavor!
  • Coffee Shot – I made up my own coffee shot using 1 tsp of instant coffee powder and 2 tsp of boiling water mixed together. The coffee is optional, but it helps intensify the flavor of the chocolate.

Tips and Tricks For Recipe Success!

  • Measure out using kitchen scales – measuring ingredients out by weight and not cups is the best way to get consistent results every time!
  • Make sure you let the cookie layer chill properly so that adding the Oreos and brownie layer is a lot easier and everything looks nice and neat once you slice into it.
  • I used a 9×9-inch baking tin, but you can use an 8×8-inch one, they’ll just be a little taller.
  • Slightly underbaking is key to getting that delicious fudgy texture! I know the photos make these look dry and overbaked, but trust me, they’re moist, soft and fudgy!
  • Make sure the chocolate and butter mixture is cooled before adding to the sugar and eggs when making the brownie layer.

Ingredients

Cookie Layer

  • 1 cup (150 g) all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/3 cup (85 g) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup (50 g) brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup (55 g) caster sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup (100 g) dark chocolate chips
  • 15 double stuffed Oreos

Brownie Layer

  • 1/3 cup (83 g) unsalted butter, cubed
  • 1/2 cup (100 g) dark cooking chocolate (see notes)
  • 1/2 cup (75 g) all-purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp (16 g) Dutch process cocoa powder, sifted (see notes)
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 large eggs room temperature
  • 1/3 cup (70 g) caster sugar (superfine)
  • 1/3 cup (65 g) brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 (20 ml) coffee shot


Instructions

Cookie Layer

  • Preheat a fan forced oven to 160C/320F (170C/340F for no fan). Spray a 9-inch / 23cm square baking tin with oil and line the bottom and sides with baking paper. Set aside.
  • Add the flour and baking powder to a small mixing bowl and whisk to combine. Set aside.
  • To a large bowl, add the softened butter, brown sugar, caster sugar, salt and vanilla extract. Use an electric hand mixer to beat on high speed until creamed, about 3 minutes.
  • Add the egg and beat until well combined. Add the dry ingredients and chocolate chips and use a spatula to mix until a dough forms.
  • Place the cookie dough into the prepared tin and spread out as evenly as you can using your hands. The flatter and even you get it, the neater your brownies will look. Set aside in the fridge until ready to use.
  • Note: keep your mixing bowls! You can use them for the brownie layer.

Brownie Layer

  • Add the chocolate to a heatproof bowl and microwave for 30 seconds at a time, stirring each time until melted. Alternatively you can do this using a double boiler. Set aside to cool slightly.
  • Add the flour, cocoa powder and salt to a small mixing bowl (same one as the cookie dough ingredients) and use a whisk to combine.
  • To the large mixing bowl you used earlier, add the eggs, both sugars and vanilla extract. Use an electric hand mixer to whisk until pale, fluffy and doubled in volume, about 2-3 minutes.
  • Add the coffee shot and mix until combined.
  • Next, add the cooled chocolate mixture and whisk until well combined. Use a spatula to scrape the bowl down.
  • Add the dry ingredients and fold using the spatula until no dry ingredients are showing.
  • Spread the Oreo cookies across the top of the baking tin with the cookie dough. Pour the mixture on top and spread evenly. Bake for 22-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out with moist crumbs. Take out of the oven and allow to cook at room temperature. Then transfer to the fridge to cool for 2 hours before using a large knife to slice up.

Notes

Dark Cooking Chocolate - I used nestle cooking chocolate. Cooking chocolate is what you ant to use for this recipe as it’s designed to be used in baking recipes without seizing.
Dutch Processed Cocoa Powder - is an unsweetened cocoa powder which is lower in acidity and rich in chocolate flavor.
Storage - Slutty Brownies can be stored in an airtight container for up to three days.
Nutrition - is based on per bar. This recipe makes 9 bars.
A note on measurements - all ingredients in this recipe are offered in Australian cup measurements and weight measurements. Australian cups are different to other cup measurements in different places in the world which means that no cup measurements anywhere are a reliable way to measure! Weight measurements are created by me, in my kitchen here in Melbourne Australia. The best way to get recipe success is to measure ingredients by weight, using kitchen scales.
