Wondering how this slutty brownies recipe got its name? I would say it’s because they are over the top indulgent, delicious, AND they’re pretty easy to put together.
Oreo Dessert Ingredient Notes
While the ingredients are pretty straightforward, there are a few adjustments you can make depending on your flavor preferences.
- Sandwich cookies – Use name brand or generic and get creative with the flavor combinations! The ones with mint, chocolate creme, and even peanut butter filling would taste amazing.
- Cocoa powder – Dutch-process usually dissolves easier than natural or unsweetened, and it creates a richer flavor and darker color as well.
- Extra topping – If you’d like, add a little caramel drizzle just before serving.
Helpful Tips and Tricks
- Need to save time? You could easily make this Oreo dessert using a brownie box mix and your favorite chilled dough. However, I highly recommend making them from scratch for the best texture and flavor.
- Adjust your oven racks. Generally speaking, these do better when situated in the lower third of the oven so the top doesn’t get too crispy or burn. It will just depend on whether yours is gas or electric as well as the age and size of the appliance.
- Want a firmer cookie layer? Try baking it for a few minutes by itself before adding the other layers.
- Tip for testing doneness: Insert a toothpick or wooden skewer into the center. If it comes out clean, they’re done! Otherwise, continue baking your Oreo dessert a few minutes at a time until fully set.

FAQ – Common Recipe Questions
Does this Oreo dessert need to be refrigerated?
These can be kept on the counter at room temp for 4 to 5 days. Wrap tightly with plastic wrap or transfer to a sealed container so they don’t dry out.
What if I don’t have a double boiler?
It’s easy to create your own with a medium saucepan and heat-safe bowl! Bring about an inch of water to a simmer in the pot, then rest the bowl on top.
It should fit snugly enough to create a seal without the bottom touching the water.
The steam created inside the saucepan will melt the chocolate, but be sure to keep the water at a low simmer.
Also, don’t let any condensation get inside the bowl or it will cause the mixture to seize and harden or crumble.

Cookie Dough Layer
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup butter, softened
- 6 Tablespoons granulated sugar
- 6 Tablespoons packed brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 large egg
- 1/2 cup semi-sweet mini chocolate chips
- 1/4 cup unsalted butter
- 6 ounces semi-sweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 2 large eggs, room temperature
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 3 Tablespoons Dutch-process cocoa powder, sifted
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips or chunks
- 24 Oreos
- Caramel Sauce, optional
- Start with the first step of the brownie batter. In a double boiler melt the chopped chocolate together with the butter. Remove from the heat, pour into a mixing bowl. Let cool for 8-10 minutes.
- Preheat the oven to 350°F and spray a 9-inch square pan with cooking spray and line it with parchment paper leaving an overhang.
- Make the cookie dough, while the chocolate is cooling. In a small bowl or measuring cup combine flour, baking soda, and salt.
- In the bowl of a stand mixer or using a hand mixer combine butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract. Add egg and whisk until combines. Gradually add in flour mixture. Fold in chocolate chips and spread into the prepared square pan.
- When the chocolate mixture has cooled down for about 10 minutes, add the sugar to the cooled chocolate butter mixture and whisk until well incorporated. Add the eggs, one at a time and whisk in the vanilla extract.
- Add the flour, Dutch-process cocoa powder, and salt and gently fold them in. Mix only until everything is incorporated. Fold in the chocolate chips.
- Spread half the batter over the cookie dough, then top with a layer of Oreo Cookies and spread the remaining batter on top of the cookies. Sprinkle crushed Oreos on top.
- Bake in the lower third of the oven for 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick comes out with only a few moist and fudgy crumbs attached.
- Let the brownies cool in the pan on a cooling rack to room temperature then put in the fridge for 1 hour for easier cutting. Drizzle with caramel sauce and serve!
