What I want for Mother’s Day: Oreo Chocolate Chunk Bars

Oreo chocolate chunk bars 1_small

This is downright chocolate decadence. I can’t give you one nutritionally good reason to make these, but I can tell you they are worth every calorie and fat gram they contain.

And if someone else makes them for you? None of it counts.

I made a big batch of these for our Teacher Appreciation week and every single crumb — even the crusty corner bits — were scraped right from the pan. Not a chip, not an Oreo, not a single morsel left.

Now that’s what I call high praise. Chocolate brownie, crunchy Oreo with a creamy center, and melty chocolate chunks all hop in the same pan for a dessert that should be illegal, y’all.

What I want for Mother’s Day:Oreo Chocolate Chunk Bars


1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour

3/4 cup powdered sugar

1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

1 1/2 cups chopped Oreos, divided (I use Double Stuff)

1 cup unsalted butter, chilled and cut into chunks

2 cups chocolate chips, semisweet or dark, divided

1 14-oz. can sweetened condensed milk

1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Heat oven to 350 degrees and line a 9×13? baking pan with foil, leaving a 2-inch overhang on each end. Spray foil with nonstick spray.

In the bowl of your food processor (or in a regular mixing bowl), add flour, sugar, cocoa powder, and 1/4 cup chopped Oreos. Cut in butter by pulsing until crumbly. (If working by hand, use your fingers or a pastry cutter until mixture is dry and crumbly.) Press firmly into bottom of baking pan. Bake for 15 minutes.

In the meantime, gently heat sweetened condensed milk and 1 cup of chocolate chips in a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir frequently, until chocolate has melted and mixture is smooth and creamy. Remove from heat and stir in extract. Remove pan from oven after 15 minutes and pour melted chocolate mixture over the cookie crust. Spread evenly. Sprinkle with remaining chocolate chips and crushed cookies. Press down gently on toppings. Return pan to oven and bake an additional 20 minutes or until set. Transfer to wire rack to cool completely before cutting into squares or bars. (I usually chill these for easy cutting.)
