No these brownies aren't wearing inappropriate clothing and no they didn't "get around," but they are a little slutty.
My current food blogger girl crush is Gaby Dalkin (pronounced Goby) from What's Gaby Cooking. If you don't already follow her on Snapchat, stop what you are doing and give her a follow @whatsgabycookin. This SoCal based, avocado obsessed, slutty brownie extraordinaire has it going on. She is constantly posting new recipes of all the amazing food she is eating or making. Not to mention she is hilarious and seriously brightens my day every time she puts a new snap up.
The recipe of Gaby's that has been at the top of my list are these slutty brownies. I mentioned how they don't "get around," but I guess they kind of do. They flirt with chocolate chip cookie dough, oreos and brownie batter, making them the ultimate slut. All for our enjoyment though.
I love when my kitchen looks like this. Only good things come from copious amounts of measuring cups and spatulas covered in batter and dough. Props to mom for setting the backdrop with her killer marble countertops.
Slutty Brownies adapted from What's Gaby Cooking
yields 16 brownies
For the brownie layer:
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1 1/4 cups white sugar
3/4 cup cocoa powder
1/2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 large eggs
1/2 cup flour
For the Oreo layer:
1 package of regular or double stuff Oreos (you wont use them all)
For the cookie dough layer:
1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
1/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup white sugar
1 1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Line the bottom of a 9x9 baking pan with foil. Use two sheets for extra sturdiness. Then spray the foil covered pan with cooking spray.
For the brownie layer, in a medium sauce pan, melt the butter over medium high heat. Add the sugar and cocoa powder once the butter is melted. Whisk to combine and remove from heat. Add the salt, vanilla and eggs and continuously whisk until the eggs are combined. Add the flour and continue to mix. Set batter aside.
For the cookie dough layer, cream together the butter and sugars in a mixer. Add the eggs and vanilla, scrape down the sides of the bowl. Add the flour, salt, baking soda and baking powder and mix on low until everything is incorporated. Fold in the chocolate chips with your spatula. Set dough aside.
To assemble, layer the cookie dough on the bottom of a 9x9 baking pan, pressing down to form the bottom of the slutty brownies. Layer as many Oreos that will fit on top of the cookie dough. No need to overlap. One single layer will do. Pour the brownie batter on top of the Oreo layer and make sure it's evenly layerd on top.
Bake for 30-35 minutes. Test with a knife to see if the center is done. If the knife comes out clean, let the brownies rest before serving. If the knife comes out with batter still on it, allow the brownies to bake about 5 minutes more. Once they are done, you have to let them rest. It's the hardest part, but it's crucial otherwise they will fall apart on you.
Serve with a tall glass of milk, you'll need it!
Now get a little slutty and make some brownies. They went over far too well with all of my taste testers.
