Slutty Brownies with chocolate chip cookie, oreo, and brownie!

Slutty Brownies

These are quite possibly the most ridiculous, over-the-top, indulgent brownies ever. They’ve been floating around the internet a while. I think I first saw them when the lovely Amanda of Kevin and Amanda posted them and then again more recently over at What’s Gaby Cooking. They’re everything you could ever want in a dessert in one glorious bite.

Recipe Rundown

Taste: Like the most comforting, wonderful explosion of chocolate goodness in your mouth.
Texture: Ooey, gooey, fudgey, chewy, thick. The Oreos become very soft and sort of absorb all the butter.
Ease: You’re going to need a whole lot of butter for this one. I was a little nervous that this recipe was going to make a total mess in my kitchen but it wasn’t that bad.
Appearance: These brownies just look indulgent and like they want to be bitten into.
Pros: So. dang. good.
Cons: So much butter and sugar! Make these for special occasions and cut small squares.
Would I make this again? Yes and yes.

How to make
Slutty Brownies

Yield: 16 brownies
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 50 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour
Slutty Brownies have 3 ooey, gooey, and fudgy layers: chocolate chip cookie, Oreo, and brownie at the top. It's like an explosion of chocolate goodness in your mouth! 


Brownie layer:

  • 10 tablespoons (1 1/4 sticks) unsalted butter
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour

Oreo layer:

  • 16 double-stuffed Oreo cookies

Cookie layer:

  • 16 tablespoons (2 sticks) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips


For the brownie layer:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 9x9-inch pan with tin foil then spray foil with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. In a medium saucepan melt the butter. Remove from heat and add the sugar and cocoa powder, whisking to combine. Add salt, vanilla, and eggs. Whisk until combined. Add flour, mixing until just combined. Set aside.

For the cookie layer:

  1. In the bowl of an electric mixer beat the butter and sugars on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add eggs and vanilla, beating until combined. Add flour, salt, baking powder, and baking soda and mix on low until incorporated. Fold in chocolate chips. Set aside.

To assemble:

  1. Press half of the cookie dough mixture into prepared pan in an even layer. Reserve remaining cookie dough for another use (store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 days or in the freezer for up to 6 months).
  2. Layer Oreo cookies into one even layer on top of cookie dough, pressing in slightly.
  3. Pour all of the brownie batter on top of Oreo layer and spread evenly with a spatula. Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until a knife comes out mostly clean when inserted into the middle of brownies. Serve warm (will be messy) or let cool completely and cut into 16 bars.

    When I saw the title of this post I skipped all the other blogs before yours and I am SO glad that I did!! These look amazing! I'm having some friends over this weeeknd for a VDay party and I am 100% making these! I like the idea of saying, “Would you like another slutty brownie?” lol

    these look great! only one question – if you reserve half the cookie dough, why not just cut the recipe in half? though that feels kind of silly – who doesn't want cookie dough left over???

      That's what I figured. If someone doesn't want the extra dough (don't know who that person would be!) the recipe is easy enough to halve. I always have extra cookie dough in my freezer – it stays perfect in there!

      Rather than save half of the cookie dough, I'd double the rest and make 2 pans! Even if you need to cut them small because of the ultra-delicious-richness, I'd still rather make 2 pans and more happy friends.

    I've seen similar recipes around the blog world and pinterest, but haven't had the chance to make them. Now that your page has caught not only mine, but my husband's eye I think we will have to try these this week.

    Thanks for sharing!

    i made mine today but i used a box mix and got the cookie dough log from the grocery store i needed 2 of the cookie doughs to make the bottom layer i put the brownies in for 35 minutes and they still came out very runny in the center of them i think they needed like an extra 5 minutes in the oven but they still taste amazing

    Looking up the word “slutty” on foodgawker brings up recipes with a chocolate chip cookie base layer, a brownie top layer w/ oreos in the center. I decided to combine marshmallow fluff w/ powdered graham cracker crumbs with milk and dark chocolate in the center along with the oreos. The bar is entitled “the nut-loving slut” hahaha, because their will be walnuts in the cookie layer, pecans in the brownie layer with a broken up almond hershey milk chocolate bar in the center with the smore/oreo layer.

    I have made these many times, with rave reviews. I need a large batch for a Halloween party. I use the special edition Halloween oreos. Adorable. My question is can they be made in a 9X13 pan by doubling the brownie? Approximate baking time? Or should I just make 2 separate pans?

    For the cookies could I substitute to using all brown sugar instead because i know some cookie recipes are that way! Or is is not recommended? ๐Ÿ™‚ They look AMAZING!

    I do not have a 9×9 pan, what do you recommend? I have 8×8 and 9×13.
