Minimal Effort Baking: cookie-cookie-brownie-bars

I promised I would share my non-from-scratch bars with you. 


  • Cookie Dough (I used a mix for Oatmeal Chocolate Chip.  It was made by Betty Crocker or one of her friends).
  • Oreos
  • Brownie batter (Once again I used a mix – this one I think by Target).
  • Line your cake pan with parchment paper and spray with Pam (or her generic cousin if you are like me).
  • Prepare cookie dough according to directions and spread the dough in your cake pan.
  • Layer with oreos.
  • Prepare brownie mix and pour on top.
  • Bake at 350 for 45 minutes.
  • Serve with ice cream!  Delish!

Here is the original recipe I followed.  Their pictures will make you drool, so consider yourself warned.

On a different baking note, the student teacher across the hall made these truffles.  A student saw one sitting on my desk and asked what it is.  I said, “It is a truffle!”  He said, “You know how to make another kind of truffle.  The kind with the stick in it!”  “Why yes, I do.”  Either my baking talents are known farther and wider than I realized or he had been eyeing the cake pop that was sitting in a ziplock on my desk for a week before I ate it…  I’m guessing that I am just famous.

  1. I’m officially dubbing this one of the smartest ideas I have ever heard of. Ever. And I’m bookmarking it so that I don’t forget it. Just like the S’more bars. Thank you for keeping me in the not-from-scratch know.
