Pinned It. Tried It. Loved It.

I LOVE Pinterest. It's the first site I turn to when i'm looking for recipes whether it's for a meal or for a dessert. This recipe was my most recent pinterest recipe.

Every tuesday night, one of my besties comes over to just hang out and we usually end up making something we found on pinterest. This was one recipe we agreed that we HAD to try: Gooey Cookies and Cream Double Chocolate bars.

Just the title of the recipe makes you drool!! They were so super gooey, unbelievably easy to make and very very chocolatey. I thought they were best enjoyed warm with a scoop or 2 of chocolate ice cream. Give them a try, I guarantee you'll love them!

Gooey Cookies and Cream Double Chocolate Bars
Recipe from

1 Devils Food Cake Mix
8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
1 large egg
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk
14 Oreo Cookies, broken into bite size pieces

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. and line a 9×13 inch baking pan with tin foil sprayed with non-stick cooking spray.
2. Place cake mix, butter and egg into a large bowl, mixing to combine. Use your hands, it works much quicker :) Press into prepared baking pan. Top with broken pieces of cookies.
3. Pour sweetened condensed milk over cookies and top with chocolate chips. Bake for 23-25 minutes, until cooked through. Remove from oven.
4.  After 5 minutes of cooling, run a plastic knife around edges to loosen, this makes it much easier to remove from foil.  Let cool completely, remove foil from pan, then cut into squares.  I cut off all of the edges before cutting into squares (makes for neater squares), but do whatever you’d like!!
