Slutty brownies might seem like a strange name for a brownie, but they sure are delicious. Made with a combination of cookie, brownie, and Oreo, you can’t go wrong when you make these for your next function, or just to enjoy at home.
Why Are They Called Slutty Brownies?
The story of the slutty brownie name isn’t as exciting as you would think, but there are a couple of reasons they are named this way.
The brownies were named this way because of a blogger who took someone else’s recipe and decided to rename it so that it would go viral.
It’s a much shorter version of the original name, Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookie n’ Oreo Fudge Brownie Bar which is difficult to remember.
In addition, another blogger insists the brownies are named that way because “a lot goes into them”.
Different Types of Brownies
Did you know not all brownies are created equal? There are actually three different types which are outlined below.
- Cakey – Cakey brownies are lighter and airier than other types, having a consistency more like cake and less like fudge.
- Fudgy – Fudgy brownies are the ones that you pick up and get chocolate all over your fingers. These brownies are dense, more like the texture of fudge, but not quite all the way there.
- Chewy – Chewy brownies are most similar to fudge brownies but with a little less melt-in-your-mouth action. Rather you find yourself chewing a bit, but in a pleasant way.
Ways to Add a Little Something to Brownies
Just because you don’t have all the ingredients to make slutty brownies doesn’t mean you can’t jazz up a box of store-bought brownie mix.
Here are some toppings you can easily add to your brownies to make them better.
- Add pieces of your favorite candy bar to the mix
- Add chocolate chips to the batter
- Put chocolate chips on top of your brownies after they are out of the oven but before they cool
- Add marshmallows to the brownie batter
- Add nuts to the batter
- Frost your brownies
- Add fruit as a topping for your brownies
- Crush peppermints into the batter for a holiday flair
- Frost with peanut butter
Don’t be afraid to mix and match these suggestions, after all, these brownies are your creation.
Slutty Brownies Ingredients:
- Cookie dough
- Brownie mix
- Any ingredients required for the brownie mix (i.e. oil or eggs)
Step-By-Step Instructions on How to Make Slutty Brownies
Step 1: Preheat the Oven
Preheat your oven to the temperature on the brownie box. Grease the pan you plan to use.
Step 2: Cookie Dough
After the pan is greased, make an even layer of cookie dough on the bottom of the pan.
Step 3: Oreos
Place the whole Oreos on top of the cookie dough in a layer.
Step 4: Make Brownie Mix
Follow the directions on the box to prepare your brownie batter.
Step 5: Pour the Brownie Batter
Pour the brownie batter on top of the Oreos and cookie dough.
Step 6: Bake
Bake your creation for the amount of time specified on the brownie box or until a toothpick comes out clean. Let them cool for a moment after you pull them out of the oven, but they are ready to eat!
Expert Tips and Variations
- You can use any brownie mix with this recipe, so don’t be afraid to switch it up to a more fudgy or cakier brownie
- Make sure you don’t over-mix the brownie batter otherwise your brownies will be dry
- It’s better to slightly underbake brownies than to overbake them. So when in doubt, pull them out of the oven.
How to Serve Slutty Brownies
Slutty brownies are best served warm. You can enjoy them by themselves, or a la mode with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
How to Store Slutty Brownies
Keep your brownies fresh by storing them in an airtight container in the fridge. Your slutty brownies will stay good this way for 4-5 days.
If you want more cakey brownies, butter is recommended. The butter will make the batter lighter and fluffier. For fudgier brownies, always use oil instead of butter.
Fudgy brownies have more fat in them than flour and also don’t contain baking powder—two elements that keep them fudgy. When using a box mix of brownies, there is little to do to change this besides ensuring you purchase the type of brownie mix you desire.
Brownies do best when they are cooked in the middle of your oven, so take a moment to switch the rack around to the middle to get your perfect brownies.

I have made these brownies and they are super delish. We just call them the oreo cookie brownies!!! Ha Ha! Have not heard them called the slutty brownies. ha ha. I frost mine too because they are not decadent enough so let’s add on some more sugar right?!!! Yum.
I’m not so happy you put that baby in the oven. And I’m kinda mad at Gabbie for introducing you to them. And I want to come up with a new name, Robert Redford brownies? Ah ha ha ha ha ha…. that’s the other dessert I always hated to tell the name of.
I haven’t had time to check my reader for a long time now – and browsing it today I came across this – HAD to come by –
They look delish !!!
Could they be served with Schweddy Balls, I wonder???
( SNL reference – just in case you’ve never heard of them – one of the best skits ever )

Oh good!! Glad you tried them. Yes, they are something I dream about often now. Of course, you just can’t have them on a regular basis, oh how I wish though:)
I know why they are called Slutty Brownies…cuz they are so easy!
You might even try them with red velvet oreo’s or the graham version or the mint oreo’s
Oh boy, yes! I will next time Norma. What a great idea.
I made them last night and they were a little gooey. I had more cookies on mine. Added 5 minutes to the bake time. Were the hit of the party. Easy to make.
Excellent! That works..I will have to try more cookies next time.
They’re called slutty brownies because they’re just so easy! 🙂

Thanks for the recipe and it will be going to the superbowl party even if the Broncos aren’t.
YAY! OMG that sounds great with the ganache. Will try that next time I want to get even looser lol!
Bake @ 350??? How long or follow the brownie mix baking time?
I mention on the recipe card according to the box directions. Although, ovens vary so you have to watch them too!
I am going to try baking them this way next time. The recipe I used today was a bust. Will it work in a 9×13 pan?
Yes, absolutely it will work in a 9×13.
If I use a 9×13 pan will I have to adjust the temperature and cooking time?
I’m not sure Norma. I would just watch them closely.
I had to bake them 30 minutes with foil over them then another 30 minutes but they were perfect
Is this the cookie dough that’s in the roll???
I’m really enjoying your blog!! I bought your stencil, “Home is Where the Heart Is”. It’s so pretty…. haven’t used yet, though.
Early Merry Christmas to you and your family!!!!
Thanks Denise! No it’s the cookie dough in the tub. I suppose you could use the roll though too. It’s all the same:) Just layer it accordingly. Thanks for your purchase. Enjoy. Please share your review on Amazon and your project with me. I am loving to see them all. Thanks and Merry Christmas to you and your family. xo
How get card so can print it? Oreo cookie brownie
I always heard they were called slutty brownies because they were “cheap and easy”! LOL Don’t know if that’s true but it is funny!!
I know this says best warm, but how are they made ahead? I have a family reunion tomorrow and these would be a hit I’m sure. Could I make them first thing in the morning and they’d be good for lunch?
Yes Rita, they would still be delicious.
