OMG Brownies — A Simple Recipe for AMAZING Brownies That Make a PERFECT Holiday Gift

With the holidays around the corner, we’re all short on time and funds! So, we thought we’d share the perfect idea with you: this is a recipe for creating a homemade masterpiece that you will be proud to give as a gift. This dessert is so good, so decadent, and so indulgent we’re confident that it has to be illegal in some states. But, that didn’t at all deter us from sharing it with you — besides, we loved the side benefit of “taste-testing” the ultimate cookie/brownie treat that will literally make you and your friends say, “OMG!”
The ingredients we selected for our OMG Brownies because they exceeded our quality standards and taste great, and they took a basic recipe to the next level!

Step 1:
Whip up the cookie dough by following the recipe on the box. Pour the contents of the Ghirardelli Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix  into a large bowl with one egg  and half of a stick of butter. We chose to use Ghirardelli Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix because it makes the absolute best chocolate chip cookies ever!

Make sure you mix the ingredients together thoroughly! It takes some elbow grease, but it will be worth it in the end.

Step 2:
Line a 9 x 13 baking dish with parchment paper or spray it with a good layer of cooking spray. You don’t have to line the pan with parchment paper, but it sure maks it easier to get the OMG Brownies out when they are done!
Evenly spread the cookie dough across the bottom of the pan.

Step 3:
This is the “secret sauce” — trust us. Cover the cookie dough with a layer of Oreo cookies. Since this is a holiday treat we went festive and chose the Winter Oreos with red cream. Line them up and don’t used the cracked ones… you can nibble on those while you continue to the next step.

Step 4: 
Combine Ghirardelli Turtle Brownie mix, water, oil, and egg in a large mixing bowl and stir at medium speed until well blended.

Step 5:
Pour the brownie batter into the pan, covering the Oreos with the delicious batter. Then, take the pouch of carmel topping and squeeze carmel on to the top of the brownie mix in 5 horizontal rows. Pop the pan into a preheated oven at 350 degrees for about 35-40 minutes.

Step 6:
Even though you’ll want to cut right into them, let them cool off a bit before cutting them into squares! Just look at the beautiful cookie and brownie layers showing through. We think they’ll be the most decadent brownie creations you’ve ever tasted! They truly define happiness and are a guaranteed instant promotion if you present a box these gems to your boss as a holiday gift! For under an hour of your time, you can make several holiday gifts and make the very lucky recipients very, very happy!

Box them up in specialty tins and VOILA! — you have jut created the PERFECT gift.
Caution: make sure to get them into the tins before you have a chance to devour all of them yourself!
