Want some chocolate to go with some chocolate? Here you go then. Another quick and easy bar cookie recipe, ideal if you want to use up a package of Oreos and er, sneak in a few while you're preparing this. Just to make sure the package is okay.
For the cookies you sprinkle on top, you might want to use the mini Oreos. More will remain whole when you cut the bars and would look prettier. It's just a matter of preference though. Personally I like the homey, "messy" look of the cut-up Oreos.
24 chocolate sandwich cookies
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
- Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
- Set aside 6 cookies and grind the rest in a food processor or blender. In a small bowl, stir together the cookie crumbs and butter until well blended. Press into the bottom of a 9 x13 inch pan.
- Over a double boiler or in the microwave, melt 1 cup of chocolate chips together with the condensed milk and vanilla. Stir frequently until smooth. Spread evenly over the crumb crust. Sprinkle the remaining cup of chocolate chips over the top. Break remaining cookies into pieces by hand and sprinkle over the top.
- Bake for 20 to 25 minutes in the preheated oven. Cool completely before cutting into bars.
