Hello! and welcome to our site. We are a husband and wife duo who likes to make food and experiment with new recipes. We decided we needed to take love for food and share it with our friends. We hope you enjoy our twist on some of our favorite recipes.
Last week, husband and I had a relapse in the grocery store and decided it was a good idea to buy 3 packages of Oreos. Who does that? We did.
We tried the Cookie dough, peanut butter and marshmallow kind. Not terrible, not great. Fast forward a week and I needed to bring something to the quarterly potluck for my office. There were still Oreos to get rid of so I had to come up with something that didn't require me to go to the store. SO I found some items in my cupboard and decided to try something. Chocolate cookie dough, layered with Oreos, drenched in coffee caramel sauce, and topped with brownie batter. Sounds deliciously challenging.
Surprisingly these weren't as rich and sweet as they sound. They definitely were a hit at the potluck.
A side note about the Stonewall Coffee Caramel Sauce. I was on mission to find their gingerbread syrup and but wasn't able to find it. But I found this deliciously looking jar and bought it to top my New York style Cheesecake I served at Christmas.
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough:
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup light brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 Tablespoon pure vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups (12 ounces) milk chocolate chips
20 Oreos - I used half Peanut Butter and half Cookie Dough
1/2 Cup Stonewall Kitchen Coffee Caramel Sauce
1/2 Cup Sugar
1/4 Cup Flour
3 Tablespoons Cocoa
1/8 tsp salt
1/8 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup Vegetable Oil
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a 9x13 pan with parchment paper. Cream together butters and sugars for about 2 minutes until light and fluffy. Add in Eggs and vanilla and mix until combined. Slowly add in flour, soda and salt and mix until combined.
Take off mixer attachment and fold in chocolate chips. Carefully, spread out cookie dough in pan until evenly spread out. I used a greased spatula and also wet my hands with water to get it out even.
Layer with Oreos. Because I used two different kinds, I did alternating flavors.
Pour warm coffee caramel sauce over entire pan. Using the same mixer bowl, sift together sugar, flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt. Add egg and vegetable oil. Pour over top of caramel laces Oreos. Bake for 40 minutes or until cake tester comes out clean.
Cool for 10 minutes and then cut into bars and serve. Enjoy!
