Yes, you read that right. A thick layer of dense Oreo truffle, topped with an even thicker layer of eggless cookie dough, then topped with a silky blanket of chocolate ganache. 3 perfect layers of soft, doughy, fabulousness.
I’ve seriously been dreaming about concocting these bars for quite some time now, like literally, It has been keeping me up at night, especially when I was in the process of experimenting and creating the recipe. First the Oreo truffle crust was too soft, then the cookie dough was too firm, then the chocolate layer was too hard to cut through, then I finally created this masterpiece. 3 perfect layers of soft, doughy, fabulousness.
In case you’ve been residing under a rock for the past few years, Oreo truffles are a dense, creamy mixture of Oreo crumbs and cream cheese, that are traditionally rolled into balls and dipped into chocolate. I’m virtually obsessed with soggy Oreos, so it makes sense why I’m obsessed with Oreo truffles; but if there’s one thing that I’ve been
obsessed addicted to since birth, it would be cookie dough. I will gladly except salmonella in exchange for some raw cookie dough (though I think that whole theory was made up by a miserable person who just doesn’t want people to enjoy life…).
So with all that being said, I swear I wasn’t high when I came up with this life-changing recipe.
Wine-buzzed? Likely. But high? No.
It was just a typical night of laying in bed; it’s 12 am, can’t sleep, my brain doesn’t understand the concept of “going to bed”, so I was pondering about what to come up with that’s totally delicious and unique to post onto my blog. That’s when I thought of this genius idea to just combine all of the flavors and textures that I love into one easy to eat, easy to make, and easy to justify eating-the-whole-pan kind of bars. Perfection was born!
After one bite of these, you’ll probably want to add me onto your will, Most likely nominate me for the espy award, and maybe even send me a fat check (just send me an email so I can tell you who to write that out to).
They’re ultra dense and creamy, and so extremely rich. They’re one of those things where you have to give yourself the, “Ok Kaylee, you’re only going to eat one? Just ONE, then you’re leaving the kitchen.” kind of pep talk. Then 8 bars later you finally find your way out of the kitchen…
I just going to warn you, if you make these for guests, they won’t leave your house. So definitely hide them from the in-laws.
My mom kept telling me, “Cut the pieces smaller! They’ll be too rich!” so being the little angel of a daughter that I am, I cut them half the size. Well, people ended up eating double the amount anyways… so moral of the story, just don’t cut them at all. Just sneak off into your bedroom for a few hours with the whole pan and a fork, and just eat the whole damn pan yourself. We all know that’s what you’ll end up doing anyways, so stop kidding yourself by cutting them into “sensible portions”.Now go make these bars right NOW, because I think we can both think of enough reasons to justify having a couple batches of these lying around (just don’t tell anyone else you made these, or you’ll have to share).
