Some memories just wrap themselves around you, bringing you right back to that point in time that is magical. When the memory surfaces everything comes rushing back to you, transporting you back into the moment. This happens to me whenever I think of buttercream frosting. Not just any buttercream, although anyone who knows me will tell you I am a buttercream snob. Rich, velvety smooth frosting that just wants to tantalize every taste bud. Whipped cream frosting….you will never find it in my kitchen!
Time got away from me, and I realize that I never posted the amazing frosting recipes that I used for PT’s 46th birthday. I scoured through countless boxes of recipes, pulled from magazines or printed from the internet, searching for the oreo buttercream that had been begging me to try for years. I don’t know what magazine this originated from, and I tweaked it just a smidgen, but I would declare this to be the best oreo buttercream I have ever made or tasted before.
I sandwiched this frosting in between 3 layers of dark chocolate cake. I will admit, I was running short on time, and used a cake mix (Duncan Hines Dark Chocolate). Reminiscent of the Cake Mix Doctor, I always add in a 1/2 cup – 1 cup of sour cream to the batter. You would not believe how moist it makes the cakes!! This was the bottom round layer of the casino cake. I only used the oreo cream as the center of the cake, choosing to use normal buttercream as the topping, as I didn’t want to take any chances my first go round with fondant. Wanted it to be as smooth as possible with no threat of an oreo poking through…
I hope you enjoy this buttercream frosting as much as I did!
Double Stuffed Oreo Buttercream
6 oz unsalted butter, room temperature
25 Double Stuff Oreos, centers removed
5 Double Stuff Oreos
3-4 cups powdered sugar
Milk to thin
Beat butter and Oreo filling (25) for about 3 minutes on medium-high speed.
Make sure mixture is smooth, you don’t want to see any filling bits.
Add the powdered sugar, one cup at a time until you reach desired consistency.
Add 5 Oreos, and beat until they are crushed into the frosting, you don’t really want too many chunks—If you haven’t eaten all of the Oreo ‘backs’, throw in some of these as well.
If frosting is too thick, thin with milk.
When thinking of Slutty Brownies, visions of either chocolate brownies oozing with marshmallow creme or cookie dough bars screaming with melted chocolate come to mind. I am not picturing cookie dough, oreos and chocolate brownies. In my mind this should be called a Triple Threat…especially to my waist line!
Slutty brownies is all the rage on the internet these days, I don’t even know who to give credit too. One of these days we will have someone’s Aunt Bertha getting into a fist fight with Sally Sue over bragging rights on who originated what recipe. As I saw The Londoner getting credit on a few sites, I will give her credit as well. Although I might be giving her credit for the concept, I do prefer my baked goods to be homemade. Yes, yes…I know I used a boxed brownie mix but I did at least use my own cookie dough recipe, and with whiskey to boot.
My husband did not rave about these brownies, but I find it hard to believe he didn’t like them as he went back for seconds and thirds and asked me to take the rest to work. I say that is a good sign they are DELISH!!!
Triple Threat Brownies (“Slutty Brownies”)
-Duncan Hines Premium (13×9 size)
-1 pkg regular Oreo’s
Cookie Dough Layer:
-1 cup unsalted butter (at room temp)
-1/2 cup brown sugar
-1 ½ cups white sugar
-1 tsp vanilla extract
-1 ½ tsp whiskey
-2 ½ cups all purpose flour
-1 tsp salt
-1 tsp baking soda
-1 tsp baking powder
-2 cups bittersweet chocolate chips
Line a 13×9 pan with aluminum foil and spray with Pam, or any other baking spray. Set aside. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
For the Brownie layer: Make the brownies according to the back of the box (I prefer to use the chewy versus cake like brownies). Set aside.
For the Cookie Dough layer:
Cream together the butter and sugars in a mixer. Add the eggs, vanilla and whiskey, making sure to scrape down the sides of the mixing bowl. In small bowl, mix together the flour, salt, baking soda and baking powder and add to butter mixture, mixing on low until everything is incorporated. Fold in the chocolate chips. Set dough aside.
Press the cookie dough onto the bottom of the 13×9 prepared pan, forming the base. You may have some extra. Your choice- enjoy some wonderful raw cookie dough or save it to make chocolate chip cookies at a later time.
Layer the oreo cookies on top of the cookie base (one layer only), lining them up close so they are snuggling next to each other.
Pour the brownie batter on top of the oreo layer, making sure that the oreos are covered and you can’t see any of the cookie base. It is very important that this layer is level to ensure even baking.
Bake 30-40 minutes. Test with toothpicks to see if the center is done. You don’t want the toothpicks to come out wet with batter, but if it comes out too clean then you risk ‘burning’ the brownies. For my oven, they generally take 37 minutes. Serve warm with ice cream or fully cool and cut into bars.
