How to Make Dessert Lasagna Layered with Oreos, Cookie Dough & Blondies

While browsing the internet, I stumbled across these Chocolate Chip Cookie n Oreo Fudge Brownie Bars — chocolate chip cookie dough topped with Oreos and brownie batter. They look amazing, and I’m sure they taste even better. This inspired me to bake something decidedly decadent, so I took the concept of the above recipe, mixed it with the tastiness of Cake Batter Blondies, and came up with this…

Dessert Lasagna

Ingredients

  • 1 package (16.5 oz) sugar cookie dough
  • 28 Golden Birthday Cake Oreo cookies
  • 1 box yellow mix
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup rainbow sprinkles
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line 9×13 pan with parchment paper.
  2. Break apart sugar cookie dough and press evenly on bottom of pan.
  3. Layer Golden Birthday Cake Oreo Cookies in single layer over sugar cookie dough. (You can make them fit. I believe in you.)
  4. Combine the cake mix, oil, milk, and egg in a large bowl. Then fold in the rainbow sprinkles and white chocolate chips. Pour Blondie batter over Oreo cookies and spread evenly.
  5. Bake for 40 to 50 minutes or until the top is set and golden brown.
  6. Let cool for completely (if you can wait that long), cut into 32 pieces, and serve.

Oh, to the, my. These bars are sweet, sugary, and super yum-o. Add a tall glass of cold milk to the mix and you’ve got everything you could want in dessert, lover, or friend.

Oreo-Stuffed Cheesecake Brownies Are Dessert Inception

Before we dive into the proceeding insanity, prepare to have your sugar-driven minds blown. Why? Because we’ve discovered the ultimate dessert inception. It’s Cake Batter Cheesecake Brownies, guys.

Jocelyn of Inside BruCrew Life is responsible for creating the concoction that starts with Birthday Cake-flavored Oreos. Automatic win. Those cookies are baked into ooey gooey brownies which are THEN covered in a funfetti cake batter-laced cheesecake layer. Is this real life?!

To make sure all dessert food groups are represented, though, top this bad boy with some ice cream to make a chocolatey, crunchy, creamy mound of deliciousness. Yez plz.

Birthday Cake Oreo Cake Batter Blondies

I know, I know, I totally just used Birthday Cake Oreos to make truffles a couple of weeks ago, and here I am using them again. But what’s better than cake-flavored things? Cake-flavored things with cake-flavored things inside of them, that’s what. Plus, these Birthday Cake Oreos are only available for so long, so I have to pack in the recipes while I can.

I snagged the blondie recipe from Girl Meets Life, and I just threw in some extra goodness.

Birthday Cake Oreo Cake Batter Blondies

Ingredients

  • 1 box yellow cake mix
  • 1/4c canola oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2c milk
  • 1/4c rainbow sprinkles
  • 1/2c white chocolate chips
  • 2 sleeves Birthday Cake Oreo Cookies, coarsely chopped

 Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Combine the cake mix and sprinkles in a large bowl.
  3. Mix oil and egg, and then combine with cake mix.
  4. Add the milk slowly just until the batter is combined. You want it to remain as dense as possible, so you may not need to use the entire 1/2 cup of milk.
  5. Mix in white chocolate chips and chopped Oreo cookies.
  6. Spread batter in a greased 8×8 pan or your fabulously awesome Edge Brownie Pan and bake for 25-30 minutes or just until the edges turn golden.
  7. Let cool for 20 minutes.

You kind of under bake the middle of these suckers, so waiting until they have cooled before you cut them will help them stay together.

While I’d love to sit here and describe, in detail, the awesomeness of  these blondies, there are still a couple left downstairs, so I’ve got somewhere to be.

Birthday Cake Oreo Truffles

Marriage, like the elevator business, has its ups and downs (high-oh). Some days you might have to remind yourself that you chose to marry him or her. And then there are those magical times when you just know that your spouse was meant for you. Today was one of those days. I was in the process of crumbling up Birthday Cake Oreos in the food processor when my other mentioned how I should use less cream cheese this time around. Then he asked me a question second only to “Will you marry me?” He said, “Why not use frosting?” Yes, I do. I mean, I will.

Duh! Why didn’t I think of that? They are Birthday Cake Oreos!  Mere cream cheese is just will not do this time around. I had a can of fluffy white frosting in the pantry (vanilla is lame), so I put my cream cheese back in the fridge for another day.

Birthday Cake Oreo Truffles

Ingredients

  • about 2/3rds of a package of Birthday Cake Oreos (1 1/2c crumbled)
  • 4oz Fluffy White Frosting
  • white chocolate bark

Directions

  1. Crumble Oreo cookies in food processor.
  2. Add in frosting and combine.
  3. Scoop into 2t balls and let set up in fridge for just a bit.
  4. Melt chocolate bark and coat truffles.
  5. Return to fridge to set.

Using the white frosting definitely allowed the chocolate-y and cake-y flavor of the Oreo to shine through. Much better than cream cheese in this instance, which at times can be overwhelming. We’ll see if I go back to the original recipe or continue to mix things up for another flavor combo, but as for Birthday Cake Oreos, frosting is the way to go.

Birthday Cake Oreos Are Real, Here’s Everything You Need to Know

Apart from being the world’s top selling cookie, the Oreo brand is celebrating its 100th birthday this March 6th, 2012 with a limited-edition Birthday Cake-flavored Oreo. There’s a lot of interesting history to be recapped in the past century, in fact, did you know that the year Oreo was birthed was the same year the South Pole was discovered, as well as the tragic sinking of the Titanic?

The cookies will start hitting store shelves next week at a suggested retail price of $3.59 and they have nationwide distribution. While prices and availability may vary, expect these to be in as many stores as possible.

We were fortunate enough to get a box of our own so we could rummage through it and give these new cookies a try. Upon peeling open the box/bag, an aroma of birthday cake was pouring out. If you are even the slightest fan of the taste of birthday cake batter (think Funfetti), then you’ll have a good, sugary time with these new cookies. You get the colored speckled frosting on the interior, and the birthday-branded wafers for texture on the outside.

Each serving (2 cookies) is 6 grams of fat, 140 calories and 13 grams of sugar.

Here’s the consensus from around the office:

Tommy:

Eating these new Oreos brings a whole new meaning to the saying “It’s Like a Party In Your Mouth”

Phil:

I used to think it was cool to listen to Slayer and worship the devil, ’till I found out these cake batter Oreos are only available in heaven.

Rudy:

Do you know how to post videos to Facebook?

Geoff:

They’re good, but too rich for my taste. Wouldn’t eat more than one in a sitting.

Elie:

If I’m buying Oreos, I’m choosing these over the originals.
