Loaded Layered Brownies

5 11 2012

So I baked this weekend. And it was bad. It was so bad, but SOOOOO good.

It involved Oreos. And cookie dough. And brownies.

It might be illegal to call myself a healthy living blogger after this one.

Saturday night, team XP had a little get together to celebrate Mary’s big news, and to welcome back Chuck.

(So that was supposed to say “Congrats Mary and Welcome Back Chuck!” But I definitely ran out of room. Whoops!)

I decided I would bring brownies because I had a box of brownie mix in the cupboard. But I couldn’t just bring brownies from a box. I had to take it up a notch. And I figured hey, I deserve it after today’s killer bike work out.

Jess and I took 3 minute shifts in the lead. When we got back, Felipe asked Jess how long it took us to ride the 30 miles. When she said an hour and a half, he said incredulously, “That’s it?!” Heck yeah. We BURNED those legs out!

So, I figured it was okay to make a ridiculously rich, loaded brownie with a cookie dough layer. And an Oreo layer. With pretzels on the bottom. Oh, and throw in some Butterfingers for good measure. Yeah, that’s more like it.

Don’t forget the milk!

Loaded Layered Brownies

Ingredients:

~2 cups crushed pretzels
2 tubes of prepared cookie dough (or you can make your own)
Oreos
Butterfinger minis
1 box of brownie batter (prepared using the directions on the box)

How to:

Preheat the oven to 350°F.

Generously grease a 9 x 13 pan.

Spread the crushed pretzels on the bottom of the pan.

Pull off small handfuls of the cookie dough and press them into a layer on top of the pretzels.

Layer on the Oreos and Butterfingers.

Pour on the brownie batter.

Bake for about 30 minutes.

Enjoy!
