Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies. Alright, confession time.
My first impression of these cookies was not a super positive one. I mean, don’t get me wrong…I love a good chocolate chip cookie. And Oreos easily top the list among my favorite “store bought” cookies. The idea of combining them just threw me. When I first saw this Oreo creation on Picky Palate I thought they looked a little gross (sorry Jenny). I am really not even sure how to describe these. Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies recipe from the fantabulous Jenny of Picky Palate 2 sticks (1 cup) softened butter 3/4 cup packed light brown sugar 1 cup granulated sugar 2 large eggs 1 tablespoon pure vanilla 3 1/2 cups flour 1 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon baking soda 10 oz bag chocolate chips 1 pkg.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a separate bowl mix the flour, salt and baking soda. NOTE: Some bakers have had some trouble with their dough spreading too much during baking. Makes about 2 dozen VERY LARGE cookies. Twix Cheesecakes – Gingerbread Bagels. Cake batter blondies. I don’t say this very often.
But this is one of the most delicious things I’ve ever eaten. Remember how I made dense, fudgy brownies by using a boxed chocolate cake mix? Well, let’s just say that I haven’t been able to stop imagining doing the same with a yellow cake mix ever since. I thought, if this method can get me to actually love chocolate, how insanely good would a cake version be?? So, chocolate-lovers, this isn’t entirely for you. Cake batter blondies. ingredients: 1 box yellow cake mix1/4 cup canola oil1 egg, beaten1/4 – 1/2 cup milk1/4 cup rainbow sprinkles1/2 cup white chocolate chips (optional) directions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Notes: I should mention that because I don’t have any bakeware yet, I actually baked this batch in a casserole dish (I’m classy like that, what can I say?). **edited to add: I made these again in an 8-inch cake pan, and they came out perfectly!
**also edited to add: I made the blondies successfully without using eggs! The Brownie That Will Change Your Life. Let me start off by saying that viewer discretion is advised for today’s post.
OK now with the story that preludes possibly the greatest brownie I have ever sunk my teeth in thus far in my life. Last Saturday Mrs. Zesty had a baby shower to attend and she was designated for a dessert/sweet treat for the girls. Last week was a bit of a zoo and I think I forgot about prepping this dessert until Friday afternoon at work. After work I did a quick scan for some ideas and came up with a chocolate caramel brownie. I knew time was tight and I didn’t want to spend all night Friday night to prep a dessert. This recipe, I cannot take any credit for and nor will I try as it is compliments of Nestle Toll House and as you can see from the reviews….

Maybe you should make two. Just a suggestion. If you are an elitist foodie, I don't know what to tell you other than to check your 'tude at the door. We're going simpleton today...but nothing less than excellent. Save your hate mail for some other food blogger; I really don't care that you would never subject yourself to a boxed cake mix.

As I mentioned on Friday, I have been doing some experimentation with the beer and chocolate combination.
The Guinness-chocolate ice cream that I made totally kicked butt, so I couldn’t wait to see how I liked beer and chocolate in my cake. The answer? I like it, a whole heck of a lot. This was my first time doing Guinness-chocolate cakes, and I was totally optimistic that I would love it, and I was definitely right. These cupcakes are fashioned after the popular drink that consists of a shot of Baileys Irish Cream and Irish whiskey dropped into a pint of Guinness. These cupcakes consist of a Guinness-chocolate cake base, which has a wonderful depth of flavor and is also supremely moist. While you can’t really taste the beer in the cupcakes (it serves as more of a flavor enhancer for the chocolate), you can definitely taste the alcohol in the filling and the frosting. I think I need to start converting more drinks into baked goods, this was too much fun (and way delicious!).
