Chocolate Chip Cookie & Oreo Fudge Brownie Bar

Sometimes, you’re just really craving something. During the Steelers game on Sunday night, I found myself longing for a Cookie Fudge Fantasy from Eat n’ Park. For those of you not familiar, Eat n’ Park is a local diner chain in the Pittsburgh area. Anyone who grew up around here likely recalls fond memories of piling into booths after football games, basketball games, a group date to the movies, before/after prom… you don’t really need a reason to go to Eat n’ Park, you  just go. It’s a ‘Burgh thing. And their Cookie Fudge Fantasy, mmm… it’s a tall sundae with layers of broken up chocolate chip cookies, vanilla ice cream and fudge, layer after layer, all topped with whipped cream and a big chocolate chip cookie. It got into my head on Sunday night and I couldn’t get it out. I hadn’t had one in years but suddenly I was craving one. Then I remembered this recipe that I had spotted on Kevin and Amanda months ago, and figured it had to be just about the closest thing to a cookie fudge fantasy in baked good form. And so I made them. And then I died and went to heaven.

Gooey chocolate chip cookies, Oreo cookies, and fudgy brownies all piled on top of one another in one amazingly decadent, sinful treat. You can top with a scoop of ice cream if you want to go the truly sinful route, but it was a particularly dreary day in Pittsburgh and I was already feeling chilly, so I skipped the ice cream. But otherwise, Oh.My.God. Everyone needs a piece of this in their life.

I cut the recipe in half and made it in an 8×8 pan (post-Thanksgiving portion control in full effect), but I think in the future I would just go for the whole recipe and either give some away or freeze them. I think Amanda’s have a more perfect ooey-gooey ratio going on, although mine were still insanely delicious! So that’s my one piece of advice – go for the whole enchilada and don’t try to halve the recipe, then give some away and make tons of people indebted to you forever.

Added to this week’s to-do list: Get thee to Eat n’ Park.

Chocolate Chip Cookie & Oreo Fudge Brownie Bar

Yield: 32 bars

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 45 to 55 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour 15 minutes

The ultimate sinful treat - a gooey chocolate chip cookie base topped with Oreo cookies and then fudgy brownies.


1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 cup granulated sugar
¾ cup light brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2½ cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups (12 ounces) milk chocolate chips
1 (18-ounce) package Double Stuffed Oreos
1 Family Size (9×13) Brownie mix (or Chewy Brownies homemade recipe)
1/4 cup hot fudge topping


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Butter a 9x13-inch pan, line with parchment paper, and then butter the parchment paper.

2. In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt; set aside. Cream together the butter and both sugars in a large bowl with an electric mixer on medium speed for 3 to 5 minutes. Add the eggs and vanilla and mix well to thoroughly combine. Reduce the mixer speed to low and slowly add the flour mixture into the mixer until the flour is just combined. Stir in chocolate chips. Spread the cookie dough in the bottom of the prepared 9×13 baking dish.

3. Top the cookie dough with a layer of Oreos.

4. Mix together the brownie mix according to the package directions, adding ¼ cup of hot fudge topping to the mix. Pour the brownie batter over the cookie dough and Oreos. Bake for 45-55 minutes. Let cool completely before slicing into bars. Store leftovers in an airtight container at room temperature.

    Oh my GOODNESS. This looks like it can blow a week of dieting in a single bite…and still be worth it!


  2. Heather @ Bake, Run, Live on November 29, 2011 at 2:20 am

    Oh my. I make a brownie that has pieces of chocolate chip cookie dough baked into the top, but this…this just takes it to a whole new level of yummyness! Oh, and I would have to give most of these away, as I can’t be trusted with a pan of brownies :(


  3. Laura @ Lauras sweet spot! on November 29, 2011 at 2:35 am

    What a great recipe! I love bars that are decadent like this, kinda reminds me of Ben and jerrys ice cream haha


  4. Choc Chip Uru on November 29, 2011 at 3:17 am

    This is a combination of my favourite desserts for sure!!


  5. CouponClippingCook on November 29, 2011 at 3:48 am

    These fudge bars and a tall glass of milk sound sooo good right now!


  6. Anne on November 29, 2011 at 4:08 am

    It looks really delicious.


  7. Lauren at Keep It Sweet on November 29, 2011 at 6:13 am

    Ever since I saw these I have been wanting to make them. They really do look amazing!


  8. Katrina on November 29, 2011 at 6:29 am

    This bar is insanely delicious! Love this!


  9. Vera on November 29, 2011 at 6:44 am

    OMG — sounds incredible…what I love about the most about the recipe, these are things that I have in my pantry…I could make these tomorrow and not have to run out to get that “special” ingredient AND my co-workers would be totally impressed!


  10. Melissa@Kids in the Sink on November 29, 2011 at 7:21 am

    I usually don’t like using boxed mixes but this looks worth it to use it!


  11. sherri lynn @ life of a wife on November 29, 2011 at 8:45 am

    These look amazing! I pinned them a while ago and still haven’t gotten around to making them. they just look so decadent! :)


  12. sue@ cakeballs, cookies and more on November 29, 2011 at 8:58 am

    You know I need to stop reading these things first thing in the morning, too much sugar. Makes it hard to get through the day until I can think about making them:(


  13. Victoria @ Toriology on November 29, 2011 at 9:02 am

    Looks delicious! I love the pictures, they look cute and yummy. :)


  14. amanda @ fake ginger on November 29, 2011 at 9:37 am

    Omg. I’m not sure I could control myself around these.


  15. Lindsay @ The Live-In Kitchen on November 29, 2011 at 9:39 am

    Yum! These look like a real treat. The cookie layer looks really thin, do the cookie and brownie kind of meld together, or is the cookie more like a crust base?


    • Michelle on November 30th, 2011 at 3:14 pm

      Hi Lindsay, I think this had to do with halving the recipe, which is part of the reason why I would go with the full recipe from now on.


  16. Amber, RD on November 29, 2011 at 10:06 am

    Looks like heaven in a bar! I also watched the Steeler’s game Sunday night. But I, unfortunately, am a Chiefs fan so I was craving tequila. They bring that out in me, so it’s a good thing I make a mean homemade margarita!


  17. Jacquelyn on November 29, 2011 at 10:16 am

    Three of my favorites all in one – this looks so delicious I’m going to have to make them this weekend!


  18. Deborah on November 29, 2011 at 10:19 am

    Is it bad that I want these for breakfast right now? :)


  19. Julie @ Table for Two on November 29, 2011 at 10:20 am

    wow, this looks so rich & decadent!!


  20. jen @ one curly fry on November 29, 2011 at 11:48 am

    These look DELICIOUS! I miss Eat n Park so much. There was one when I went to college and we went there all.the.time! I would give anything for a Breakfast Smile right about now…or some Smiley Cookies n Cream ice cream!!!


  21. Heather Taylor @ Kids in the Sink on November 29, 2011 at 12:22 pm

    Chocolate chip cookies and Oreos and brownies? Be still, my beating heart. These look so good. Like maybe I just gained weight looking at the pictures. So much temptation here. Let me ask; was it possible to eat just one? Because I foresee some trouble with that for myself!


    • Michelle on November 30th, 2011 at 3:16 pm

      Haha! It actually is, they are pretty rich, but totally delicious!


  22. Ashley @ Wishes & Dishes on November 29, 2011 at 12:41 pm

    I’m gonna get so fat this Christmas season! :) YUM!


  23. Tracy on November 29, 2011 at 12:47 pm

    I have a batch in the oven right now! I replaced the Double Stuff Oreos with the holiday Candy Cane Oreos.


  24. Courtney @ Bake.Eat.Repeat. on November 29, 2011 at 12:47 pm

    I’m dying just LOOKING at these! If I didn’t have a big OSU Duke game to watch tonight, these would get made right away. As it stands, I may have to wait until tomorrow :)


  25. Jen on November 29, 2011 at 1:05 pm

    Definitely going to have to make these for either my husband’s co-workers, or our big group of friends who get together every weekend…or both. Which brownie recipe would you recommend if I wanted to make homemade brownies instead of boxed? :)


  26. Aurora on November 29, 2011 at 1:54 pm

    This is mad crazy and I can not wait to make! I will make for co-workers birthday … soo much yummy goodness.
    Thank you!


  27. Heather E on November 29, 2011 at 1:59 pm

    holy cow–that’s some serious chocolate! these look super-fun to make (and eat)!


  28. Erin @ Dinners, Dishes and Desserts on November 29, 2011 at 5:23 pm

    WOW!! It really doesn’t get any better than that. My mouth is watering, and I getting slightly upset that I just got home from the store, and didn’t buy Oreo’!


  29. Maria on November 29, 2011 at 7:02 pm

    I’ve been wanting to make these ever since Amanda posted them! Sinfully delish!


  30. Lauren @ hey, who cut the cheese? on November 29, 2011 at 7:15 pm

    I love and miss Eat n Park (now living in Baltimore). And I know exactly what you mean about the Cookie Fudge Fantasy. Mmmm… These brownie bars look amazing! Wish I had some right now.


  31. Bettye on November 29, 2011 at 10:32 pm

  32. Kim of Mo'Betta on November 29, 2011 at 11:10 pm

    This is just downright sinful. I’m salivating like a dog over here!


  33. Leah on November 30, 2011 at 12:33 pm

    This looks delicious! I have a question: what is fudge topping? Is that something you buy? Can I make it?


    • Michelle on November 30th, 2011 at 3:22 pm

      Hi Leah, Yes you can buy it, where the ice cream toppings are located. You could also make it homemade, I think David Lebovitz has some recipes for it.


  34. Kristina on November 30, 2011 at 2:20 pm

    These look AMAZING! Drooling at work just thinking about them :)


  35. Jenn@Baking Jenn's Blog on November 30, 2011 at 6:52 pm

    Definitely loving your blog right now! These look great too!


  36. Kim @ Just Baked on November 30, 2011 at 8:14 pm

    Wow! These look absolutely amazing! I love Oreos. I love brownies. Then, add hot fudge? Sign me up!


  37. sarah on November 30, 2011 at 11:06 pm

    wow these are amazing!!!!!!
    Can you post some tips about freezing your baked goods. I would love to learn how to freeze and then defrost the day of events.


    • Michelle on December 1st, 2011 at 6:29 pm

      Hi Sarah, In general I will wrap individual servings of sweet goods (brownies, cookies, pieces of cheesecake, etc.) in plastic wrap, and then place in a larger ziploc freezer bag. I find that they stay good (fresh tasting) for 1-2 months. I usually just thaw at room temperature.


  38. Diana @ a girl, a dog & an oven on December 1, 2011 at 12:25 am

    Its 12.23 in the am and I’m up feeding the baby, wishing I has two things: one of these or an Eat N Park close by to go to after a totally sweet game of laser bowling.

    Ahhhh, to be back in PA. But seriously, these look to die for!


  39. amber on December 1, 2011 at 2:57 pm

    I saw this and almost immediately ran to the store for the ingredients! I made it last night and omg they were amazing. Waiting until the cool is definitely key, everything stays together so nice! Love it!


  40. Christin Yuppa on December 1, 2011 at 9:00 pm

    Just made this tonight for my family and a good friend. OH MY GOODNESS! I’ve made quite a few of your recipes and this is by far my favorite one. I had a baby last week and took a week long sabbatical from baking. I was so excited to make something and can’t believe how delicious it was. We served it with vanilla ice cream. WOW!!!!


  41. Heather on December 2, 2011 at 6:57 pm

    I made these and took them to work today- EVERYONE loved them!! So rich, but soooo good!


  42. Andrea on December 3, 2011 at 6:02 pm

    I made these last fall … I got one (loved it), my husband got one (loved it), my cousin got 4 (loved them) and my dog got the rest (guessing he, too, loved them). Bad dog*, great recipe.

    *he was fine


  43. Mackenzie@The Caramel Cookie on December 5, 2011 at 4:27 pm

    I’ve seen this floating around on pinterest and have been wanting to make it!


  44. Erin on December 8, 2011 at 11:15 am

    I made these last weekend, and oh so good! Especially over vanilla ice cream. I’m trying to get the hubby to take the rest to work so I don’t eat them all though! Definite diet killers!


  45. mamatoi on December 8, 2011 at 3:12 pm

    These are in the oven as I type…..I am making these to donate…I may keep a few for my self


  46. Lacy on December 9, 2011 at 12:54 pm

    Mmmm!! All of these delicious & decadent recipes are so dangerous!! I guess I’ll just pick up my diet after the new yr. 😉


  47. Rachel on December 9, 2011 at 6:14 pm

    These were scrumptious. A big hit with the crowd. I had a much thicker cookie base from my 9×13 pan. These were tall, thick, and chewy squares of yumminess. Definitely do not overbake; when they cool the gooey middle stiffens up. Tks for sharing!


  48. Kaylene on December 18, 2011 at 2:01 pm

    OMG I am making these for Christmas dessert! I’m posting about this recipe and linking back to you (of course) in my meal plan monday post tomorrow!


  49. Kim Q on December 19, 2011 at 1:26 pm

    I made these to include in the cookie platters we like to give to neighbors for Christmas and they received rave reviews. Then I changed them up a bit when I made them for work and instead of Oreos, I used Reese’s peanut butter cups. EVEN BETTER! One of my coworkers stopped by to say, “I’ve always gone by the philosophy that if you are going to eat dessert, make it worth the calories- and these are definitely worth the calories!” Shoot, I wish that were my philosophy too, but unfortunately my philosophy for desserts is the more the merrier!


  50. Sarah on December 21, 2011 at 6:16 pm

    I made these for a potluck yesterday and they were a big hit. When I told the group what the dessert was several people’s eyes widened in absolute delight. I think half the pan was gone before we even started dinner. These were unbelievably yummy!!
