A couple months ago I found myself with an extra package of Nutter Butter cookies. I’d bought them for an event, then didn’t need them, and they were just sitting around in my cupboard, waiting to be baked into something.
So I started searching Pinterest for ideas. I wanted to make some kind of blondie or cookie with little bits of Nutter Butter baked right in. When I saw this Pin from Six Sisters’ Stuff, I knew I had a winner.
And then I remembered that I also had Oreos in my cupboard.
Enter these Nutter Butter Oreo Bars. Because why stop at one mix-in when you could have two?
These have a lovely blondie base, studded with chocolate chips, Oreos and Nutter Butters. Super simple to make, and a delight in every bite.
I happened to have Chocolate Oreos but you could definitely use regular Oreos, too. I decided to use mini chocolate chips instead of standard sized because I was worried too many big mix-ins might be overpowering. I loved how my mix-in ratio turned out but you could certainly use regular chips if that’s all you’ve got.
Nutter Butter Oreo Bars
Original recipe: Based on this recipe from Six Sisters’ Stuff.
Yield: ~48 bars
Suggested equipment: Mixer
Total Time: ~50 minutes
Cook Time: ~30 minutes
For your blondies
- 2 cups brown sugar
- 1/2 cup butter
- 2 eggs
- 1 tbsp vanilla
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 2 cups flour
- 1 cup mini semi sweet chocolate chips
- 8 Nutter Butter cookies, crushed into small pieces. Divide your Nutter Butte
- 8 Oreos, crushed into small pieces
For the topping
- 2 Nutter Butter cookies, crushed into small pieces. Divide your Nutter Butte
- 2 Oreos, crushed into small pieces
- Preheat your oven to 350F
- Use a rolling pin or your hands to crush your Nutter Butters and Oreos into small pieces
- Use your mixer to cream the butter and sugar
- Add the eggs and vanilla, then beat until combined
- Add in your baking powder, salt and flour. Mix on low until it’s combined.
- Mix in your chocolate chips, Nutter Butters and Oreos. You can do this part with a wooden spoon if you’re worried about over-mixing your dough
- Grease or line a 9×13 inch pan
- Use your hands to press the dough into the pan. Make sure its’s an even layer. If the dough is super sticky, you can spray your hands with cooking spray so it doesn’t stick to you
- Sprinkle your topping evenly over the batter (that’s your extra 2 Oreos and 2 Nutter Butters, combined)
- Bake for about 30 minutes. You want them to look slightly golden, but the center might still seem a little gooey
- Let the bars cool completely in the pan, then use a sharp knife to slice into squares
