Oreo Fudge Bars

I often frequent the blog of the Baking Blonde and she always posts such yummy looking desserts. I thought this was the perfect cookie inside a "cookie" type dessert for the holidays. The great part is you can make these a day or two in advance as long as you wrap them up well and then you have one more recipe checked off your list!

  • 16oz. package of Oreo cookies

  • 1 stick butter, melted

  • 1/4 tsp salt

  • 14 oz sweetened condensed milk

  • 1 tsp vanilla

  • 3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

  • 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips

  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 325F. Line a 9×13 pan with foil and lightly spray with PAM. Set aside 6 Oreo cookies for the toppings.

In a small food processor, grind the rest of the cookies. If you don’t have a food processor, just pound with a rolling pin until the cookies are fine crumbs. Add the salt to the crumbs and stir to combine. Melt butter and gently stir together with the cookie crumb mixutre. Press firmly into the bottom of the prepared pan. Coarsely chop the remaining cookies into chunks and set aside.

Over a double boiler or in the microwave, melt 3/4 cup semi-sweet and 1/2 cup milk chocoalte chips together with the condensed milk and vanilla. Stir frequently until smooth. Spread evenly over the prepared cookie crust. Sprinkle the mini chocolate chips and the Oreo cookies chunks over the top of the filling. Press down gently into the chocolate topping.

Bake for 20-22 minutes oven. Allow to cool on counter for 1 hour. Chill in fridge until completely cold and set before cutting into bars.
