Tom Selleck celebrates his 68th birthday January 29th and confessed to Rachel Ray recently that he loves Oreo cookies with milk. In his honor we're sharing this recipe for Oreo Mud Bars.
OREO® Mud Bars
1-2/3 cups Oreo® cookies, crushed into crumbs
6 Oreo® cookies, broken into coarse pieces
1 stick butter, melted
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup semi-sweet (dark)chocolate chips
3/4 cup milk chocolate chips
1/2 cup macadamia nuts, chopped
1/3 cup mini chocolate chips
1 cup white chocolate chips, melted
Line a 9" x 13" baking pan with foil, shiny side down, and spray with non-stick spray. Blend cookie crumbs, salt, and butter in small bowl. Press your cookie crumb mixture into the prepared pan.
In a double boiler, blend condensed milk, dark and milk chocolate chips, and vanilla. Stir until melted and remove from the heat. Pour your melted chocolate mixture over the cookie crumb base. Sprinkle the mini chocolate chips, walnuts, and Oreo cookie chunks over the top of the filing. Press down gently into the chocolate topping.
Bake for 20-22 minutes in the preheated 350 degree oven. Cool the pan on a wire rack till warm to the touch, about an hour. Melt the white chocolate chips and drizzle over the top of the bars and chill in refrigerator for 2 hours. When ready to serve, use the foil to remove the bars from the pan and cut into squares. Store in an airtight container.
