When faced with the cake I wanted to make with my friends for my birthday this year now that I'm at college, I was stumped. There weren't many pots and pans available so making my normal layered ice cream cake was out of the question. I decided that I really only had the pans for bars, but I still wanted some sort of cake.
Nutella & Oreo Stuffed Cookie Cake
- Prep Time:15 mins
- Cook Time:45 mins
- Total Time:1 hr
- 2 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 3/4 cup butter softened
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 eggs
- 1 tablespoon milk
- 1 cup chocolate chips or to taste
- 26 ounce Nutella
- 24 Oreos or to taste
- Ice cream optional
Preheat Oven to 350˚F. In a medium sized bowl, whisk together 2 cups of flour, 1 teaspoon of baking soda, and a 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Set aside.
In a large bowl, beat 3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) softened butter, 3/4 cup sugar, 1/2 cup brown sugar until creamy. Then add 2 teaspoons vanilla extract, 2 eggs, and 1 tablespoon milk. Blend thoroughly.
Add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients and mix until fully incorporated.
Pour in your desired amount of chocolate chips (I used 1cup) and mix.
Pour 1/2 of the cookie dough into an oven proof skillet. If you don't have a skillet, use a brownie pan like I did.
Smash 15 (or however many you'd like) Oreos into small chunks, then mix in a small bowl with the 6 oz (2 regular jars) of Nutella. Layer this over the cookie dough.
Crush some more Oreos (I used 9) and sprinkle them over the top. Then add the rest of the cookie dough, being sure to cover all of the oreos. Put in the oven for 45 minutes (until edges are brown). Baking times may vary.
Take your delicious cookie cake out of the oven and enjoy! I cut them into brownie sized pieces, but for a real cookie cake experience cut it into pizza-like slices. Add some ice cream if you wish.
