Double Chocolate Cookie Bars

Yum!  These Oreo cookie bars are a chocolate lover’s dream!  They are not only  fantastically gooey and crunchy at the same time, but really easy too.  Give them a try!

My only regret is that I wish I would have saved more than 6 whole cookies to crumble on top as the recipe indicates.  Next time, I will use 8 or 9 for the topping.

Double Chocolate Cookie Bars {adapted from allrecipes.com}

Yields 20 bars <—– that’s crazy! More like 12

Ingredients:

  • 1 package of Oreo cookies {I used double stuf}
  • 3/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips {I used a combo of regular and mini sized to finish the open bags I had.}

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
  2. Set aside 6 cookies and grind the rest in a food processor.  In a small bowl, stir together the cookie crumbs and butter until all is moist and well blended. Press into the bottom of an 9×13 inch pan. {I used my hands to do this and I had to lightly moisten my fingers with water to avoid sticking.}
  3. Over a double boiler or in the microwave, melt 1 cup of chocolate chips together with the condensed milk and vanilla. Stir frequently until smooth. Spread evenly over the crumb crust using a spatula.  Sprinkle the remaining cup of chocolate chips over the top. Break remaining cookies into pieces by hand and sprinkle over the top.
  4. Bake for 20 minutes in the preheated oven.  Cool on counter until no longer hot.  Chill completely in the fridge before cutting into bars or it will make a big mess.
