I have had this recipe saved for awhile now and once I finally made these, I was kicking myself for not making them sooner! There are basically three steps involved in putting this together: crust, filling, and topping. Then bake and you have a delicious, fudgey bar filled with that fabulous Oreo taste.
These are definitely better chilled because then you get more of that "fudge" taste; so just keep them in the fridge until you are ready to serve!
Oreo Fudge Bars
Makes 24-36 bars
1 (16 ounce) package of Oreo cookies
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 stick butter, melted
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Coat a 13 x 9 baking dish with cooking spray (preferably the kind with flour).
Coarsely chop 6 Oreo cookies and set aside.
Put the rest of the cookies into a food processor, add the salt, and process until you have fine crumbs. You can also do this by placing the cookies in a sturdy plastic bag and crushing with a rolling pin.
Melt the butter and gently stir into the Oreo mixture. Press firmly into the bottom of the prepared pan.
Combine the semi-sweet chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk, and vanilla in a microwaveable bowl. Microwave, uncovered, for one minute. Stir together until the chips melt. Microwave at 15 second intervals if chips are still not melted.
Spread evenly over the prepared cookie crust. Sprinkle the mini chocolate chips and the Oreo cookies chunks over the top of the filling. Press down gently into the chocolate topping.
Bake for 20-22 minutes, until set. Allow to cool on the counter for 1 hour. Chill in fridge until completely cold and then cut into bars.
