 These gooey brownie bars need to happen in your kitchen ASAP.

I mean look at the layer of hot fudge coming out of it.  What is stopping you from making these?

So the other day, I got an intense craving for mint and chocolate.  I had most of the stuff in my cupboards to make these right away…just had to run to the store for the mint Oreos.  Now here’s the kicker!  I can’t even eat these.

For the past week my husband and I have been eating clean.  Only fruits, veggies, and protein.  We have a goal of 24 days to meet, and so far so good.  That means that no matter how much I was craving mint and chocolate, it couldn’t happen.

That didn’t stop me from getting in the kitchen and making mint brownie magic though.  My husband had a deacon’s meeting at the church, and I love to make fun desserts to send with him.  So at least I got to have fun in the kitchen.

These gooey bars start with a brownie mix.  Just one egg and a stick of butter makes a great dough for the bottom of the bars.  Then I spread hot fudge over the dough, sprinkled in some mint Oreos and Andes mint chips.  Oh, and some chocolate chips because clearly there wasn’t enough chocolate going on in these bars ;-)

Now like most gooey bars, I used sweetened condensed milk, but I wanted it to bake dark, so I added more hot fudge to that too.  Yes, this is chocolate overload people!!!  The smell when it came out of the oven was enough to drive this veggie ridden girl crazy!!!  Lucky for me, it has to cool completely before you can even cut into it.  That saved me that night.

Now the true test was cutting these into bars the next day, and doing a photo shoot with that ooey gooeyness staring back at me!  It was so hard.  True confession…I had two small bites when I got done.  But I only chewed and then spit.  I know, I am as shocked as you.  Usually the minute I get a taste for chocolate, I go nuts and can’t stop.

Maybe this whole eat right thing does work.   Maybe after the 24 days I won’t even want to have chocolate in my house.  Hahahahahahahahaha!  Yeah, I don’t think so either.

No matter what happens, these bars will be made again when I can devour one (or two).   My son keeps telling me how good they are.  He also keeps telling me to just have one bite.  Oh, he knows me too well.  But for now I am holding strong.    I will win this challenge.

And then I will eat brownies!

      Hahaha! I’m glad I posted now instead of waiting until December then ;-) I was going to use this for a post I have to do later, but then I couldn’t wait to share these crazy good bars!! Now I can’t wait to see what yours look like!!!

    These look very good. Did you chop the cookies with a knife to get chunks or put them in a ziplock bag and smush them? How big were your chunks? Thanks for sharing your recipe.

    OH.MY.GOODNESS! These certainly look to die for. I’m trying to eat clean too, and I could never make something like this without having to taste them….and then I’d be done in. Thanks much for sharing at Weekend Potluck,. We’d sure love it if you’d link back to the party within your post…it makes you eligible for being featured. These bars are surely something worth crowing about. =)

    Is it too sweet with the condensed milk? What if I don’t put it in? Should I use something else or would it be ok?

      It is a very sweet, but divine dessert. The sweetened condensed milk is what makes it a gooey bar. I honestly wouldn’t leave it out if I were you. You could do half the fudge and sweetened condensed milk if you really want too…I would bake it a little less if that is what you choose to do.
