Oreo Blondies & Oreo Frosting – AKA There’s No Such Thing As Too Much Oreo

8 Jun

Sometimes – I just want to bake – for the sake of baking – for ME. That’s right – sometimes I am selfish, and scour the internet for a recipe I want to make. Don’t get me wrong – I adore baking for others too – but sometimes you just have to practice self-care. That’s what these Oreo Frosted Blondies are – self-care (that’s what I am telling myself anyway).

Ingredients
1 cup butter softened
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
3.4 ounces instant vanilla pudding
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup chocolate chips, milk or semi sweet
1 cup white chocolate chips
16 oreo cookies, broken into pieces (I used double stuff)

Instructions
In a large bowl cream together butter, brown sugar and sugar. Then add eggs and vanilla. Stir until well blended. Add in dry pudding mix and stir together until light and fluffy.
Then add the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt until it is mixed in well. Gently fold in the chocolate chips, white chips, and oreo pieces.
Grease a 9 x 13 inch pan. I used a glass pan. Pour batter into the pan and bake at 350 degrees for 20 – 22 minutes. You do not want to overbake. Cook until the center is set, but still gooey

Little Sous Chef was very excited to help with this one – might have been the Oreos that did it!

White Chocolate chips, semisweet chocolate chips, AND oreos – this was more add-ins than batter – and I got a workout stirring it together!

Once they were in the oven – he was thrilled to get a few of the leftover Oreos (after asking me literally at least 25 times while prepping the dough if he could have one – ahh toddlers!)

Now – because I am extra, I decided “why stop there?” – and I added another layer of ridiculous-ness to these bars – FROSTING

What’s even better than vanilla buttercream? Vanilla buttercream with OREOS!

WOW THOUGH. Intense

Both the bars and the frosting were super easy to make, and they taste SO GREAT together. Seriously.

Did I have to frost an already rich, dense cookie bar? No I did not. Do I regret it even one little bit? HECK NO! These are awesome. I may share the deliciousness with my family – or I might not – ha
