1 package Double Stuffed Oreos
1 box brownie mix with the chocolate syrup pouch
1/4 cup hot fudge topping
Vanilla ice cream

1. Heat oven to 350.

2. Spread the cookie dough in the bottom of a greased 9×13 baking dish. Top with a layer of Oreos.

3. Mix together brownie mix, adding an optional 1/4 cup of hot fudge topping to the mix. Pour the brownie batter over the cookie dough and Oreos.

4. Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes. Remove foil and continue baking for an additional 15-25 minutes. Brownies are down when a toothpick inserted 2″ from the edge comes out clean or with moist pieces clinging to it. Let cool completely before cutting and serve with vanilla ice cream.
