You can take the girl out of the trailer…

My gym has a cardio theater, if you don’t know what that is, large movie screen with cardio equipment in there so you can watch a movie and work out. It’s a blessing and a curse. A blessing because if it’s a good movie and you really get involved then you can have a long workout and a curse because I rarely do a hard workout because I am busy watching the movie. The other day they had on Sweet Home Alabama. It had just started and I got sucked into the whole movie.

The scene where McDreamy’s mom tells Reese’s mom in the movie to go back to her double wide and fry something, and Reese turns around and punches her got me thinking. She fought so hard to move out and on with her life, but in the end her roots brought her back. So I ask, you can take the girl out of the trailer BUT you can you take the trash out of the girl? And before I get the hate mail on this, I know there are perfectly good mobile homes, you know exactly what I am talking about.

I always laugh that my most ghetto type treats are the ones that go over best with the team. So when I saw these on Pinterest I knew that I had to make them for the team. They were as suspected a big treat. The original ones are thicker but I needed something more portable for they guys. I don’t think I would make them any thicker, but that’s me. They are great on their own, but with ice cream even better. I think any type of Oreo can go in these. So you could change up the flavors a little if you want. It’s definitely a keeper, and definitely something I was ashamed to make. :P But yummy all the same.

Ghetto Chocolate Chip Cookie n’ Oreo Brownie Bars

1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
½ cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup light brown sugar
1 large egg
½ TBSP pure vanilla extract
1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
½ tsp. baking soda
½ tsp. salt
1 cup milk chocolate chips
About 25 Golden Oreos (with chocolate filling) give or take
1 Family Size (9×13) Brownie mix (I made actual brownie and used half of it for this recipe and made a small batch of brownies…but to save time you can use the mix, I won’t blame you) .

I used a 10-x-10-Inch pan. If you use a smaller one, your baking time will need to be increased.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Cream the butter and both sugars in a large bowl with an electric mixer on medium speed for 3-5 minutes.

Add the egg and vanilla and mix well to thoroughly combine.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt, and then slowly incorporate into the mixer until the flour is just combined. Stir in chocolate chips.

Spread the cookie dough in the bottom of a 10-x-10-inch baking dish that’s been lined with wax paper and sprayed with cooking spray.

Top with a layer of Oreos.

Mix together brownie mix. Pour the brownie batter over the cookie dough and Oreos. Bake at 350 degrees F for 30-35 minutes. If yours are thicker due to pan size, bake longer. Just watch them.

  1. Giiirrrl if this is ghetto then I do not want to be classy!

  2. sinful. just sinful. I’d rather be a sinner though than a goody two shoes. ;)

  3. Yum! I am making these this weekend!

  4. trailers scare me so i can’t answer that P
    but i love you and your creations.

  5. I don’t think I want to answer that…just pass the bars and we can make like a twix commercial.

  6. Damn that looks good!

  7. These are ridiculous in an OMG I need to throw out all my jeans and only wear sweats because I have gained 50 pounds eating trays of these in the middle of the night by myself kinda way. And no you can’t take the ghetto outta the girl ;)

  8. Bethany says:

    Honestly, the only reason I go to the gym anymore is that they have cable TV there, and I don’t…

  9. I love ghetto type treats! Those Brownies just look out of this world.



  10. That movie is just so rewatchable lol! These sound fantastic.

  11. I never use the word “awesome” because I think it’s completely overused and used incorrectly, but… these. Look. AWESOME!!! :)

  12. Those do look great, no matter hoe ghetto! I have never seen a workout room like that, except maybe my spin class and the instructor either plays music videos or biking videos. I could never get distracted by the videos though with her prompting us all the time!

  13. how*

  14. Melissa says:

    I think that looks delicious, and I may have to make them for the folks at work who also like the ghetto treats! And, I can only speak for myself, but, no, you can’t take the trash out of this girl! And I don’t want to if it means giving up something like this treat!

  15. I’m not even a fan of oreos and I want to make this :). I’m thinking peanut butter chips, only because I’m obsessed :).

  16. I’m still looking for what there is to be ashamed of. That would be sooooooo good with double stuff oreo’s. :-)

  17. Nothing like distracting you for what you’re at the gym for. :) Does it make the time go faster? God, I hate working out.

    Which I have to do if I’m going to eat things like this!

  18. Nicole L. says:

    Seriously! I WILL make these for my boys. Thanks for sharing such amazing recipes.

  19. MMMM trashy desserts. who cares?? it tastes good, run with it!! And what’s your pinterest name Peabody?

  20. My son (who was impressed by the bra survey) saw this recipe by the printer, and was so enthralled by the name I had to make them. Did so last night — ate one then, and one for breakfast. OMG, yum and wow.

  21. This sounds fab! I don’t think I have ever had golden oreos!

  22. Kristina says:

    Holy bleeps these look amazing.

  23. I have yet to see Golden Oreos anywhere near me. Maybe I need to look harder. And kudos to you for actually MAKING things you’ve pinned instead of just pinning away like me :)

  24. this looks too good for me to resist!

  25. I’m a little late to the party, but I’m curious as to why some types of ‘junk’ food would be considered ghetto.

    I live in New York and this food is by no means ghetto. This is comfort food or a qualifying contestant on the “This Is Why You’re Fat” website. Which is an awesome website for zany food ideas.
