Recently my family was asking for a chocolate dessert. I went poking around my pantry because I didn’t want to make a trip to the store. Knowing that my Lemon Oreo Bars are a really popular recipe here on the blog, I thought Chocolate Oreo Bars might be a good idea.
I was right. They are super easy to make and, if you like Oreos, you probably have all the ingredients. All you need is a chocolate cake mix, preferably Devil’s food, the ingredients to make it and Oreos. Like the lemon version, I put a simple powdered sugar glaze on top.
I made this in a 9×9-inch pan. You could make it in an 8×8-inch pan and it will be thicker. It’s really a matter of personal preference. The middle did sink a bit when it started to cool but it was still delicious. The crumb is more dense than that of a cake.
This is an easy recipe to get the kids involved. They can mix the ingredients and crush the Oreos. After all, who doesn’t love to smash cookies into crumbs?! I put the cookies in a heavy duty zipper bag and let my kids pound away. I don’t recommend a food processor for this task because you want big chunks of cookie for the top, not fine crumbs.
