3 layer chocolate heaven

If there ever was a dessert that was super rich, super creamy, super chocolate-y, gives you your chocolate fix for a week, it was this dessert right here. I won't be making it too often because it is just so rich, but will definitely make it again! I think this is a great dessert to take to a group supper or party because it's best eaten right out of the oven when it's warm and gooey, and not after it's cooled off and has been sitting on the counter for a day. But then again, who would let this sit around without being eaten for that long? ;)

what you'll need:
  • 2 sticks butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 Tbsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 2 cups dark chocolate chips
  • 1 pkg. Double Stuffed Oreos
  • 1 Family Size (9×13) Brownie mix (and needed ingredients)
  • chocolate syrup
 how you'll do it:

preheat oven to 350*
in your mixer, whip butter and both sugars until smooth
add eggs and vanilla until combined
in separate both mix flour, baking soda, and salt
add flour mixer a little at a time until blended well
fold in chocolate chips
spray 9x13 baking pan with non-stick spray
press cookie dough into the pan

cover cookie dough with oreos

in a separate bowl, mix brownie mix according to directions
pour brownie batter over oreos
squeeze chocolate syrup over batter

bake for about an hour, start checking it at 45 minutes with the toothpick test

I took this to our monthly Bible study supper, and we served it with vanilla ice cream. It was so good that I didn't even have time to get a picture of the finished product. Here is the picture from my board on Pinterest, where I found this recipe!
