Lovers' Brownie Decadence Bars (aka slutty brownies)

When I first saw this recipe my mouth watered just reading the ingredients!  I love brownies, chocolate chip cookies, and Oreo Cookies! 
I think this would be such a wonderful dessert for Valentines Day or for any  occasion with that special someone.
The original recipe in written to make the cookie dough and brownie layers from scratch, but yaaaaaa, I'm too lazy to actually do the extra work when I can see super simple shortcuts.  I'll post my version of this delicious treat here and provide you the link to the original recipe at the bottom of this page.
Enjoy!
Lovers' Brownie Decadence Bar's 

1 (18.5 oz.) box brownie mix (family size)
~plus the ingredients to make the batter
1 (15.5 oz.) package Oreo Cookies
1 roll Refrigerated Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Lightly coat a 9 x 13 pan with non-stick spray if you are using the smaller box of brownie mix, use an 8 x 8 pan).  Make brownie batter according to package directions.  
Unroll the cookie dough and press on the bottom of your prepared baking dish.
Next layer the Oreo's on top of the cookie dough, try to cover as much as possible, but don't stack on top of each other.
I used about 30 cookies for 9 x 13 pan
Pour the brownie batter over the top of the Oreo's, spread to evenly cover.
Bake for 30-35 minutes.  You can test for done-ness (I think I made this word up) by inserting a knife or toothpick in the center to see if it comes out clean.  I like the bars a tiny bit under baked for a little creamier texture if I'm serving with ice cream, so I bake them for just 30 min.

Allow to cool for 30-40 minutes before cutting.
If you cut the bars while they are warm you will really need to place them on a plate and eat with a fork,
not~a~sacrifice~lol, because they are very soft and break apart so easily.
To make these bars an absolutely ultimate dessert, serve with vanilla ice cream~  Woot!

I just wanted to say thank you! I have read dozens of slutty brownie recipes and none of them state what size brownie mix to use or made a distinction between using an 8x8 or 9x13 pan. Maybe it doesn't matter but I'm a little too anal to follow a recipe that says "pour brownie mix into a pan"! ;)

I, too, thank you for indicating the "measured" listing of ingredients and pan size. Both make a difference in the success of a recipe. Can't wait to try your recipe!
