You’ll need a Devil’s food cake mix, 1 egg and 1 stick softened butter (1/2 cup/8 tablespoons). Mix, Mix, Mix.

I use my hands to mix and you’ll get a firm dough like so.

Break it in chunks and place evenly into a 9×13 inch baking pan.

Ingredients

  • 1 Devils Food Cake Mix 9 x 13 size
  • 8 tablespoons 1 stick unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
  • 14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk
  • 14 Oreo Cookies broken into bite size pieces

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. and line a 9x13 inch baking pan with tin foil sprayed with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Place cake mix, butter and egg into a large bowl, mixing to combine. Use your hands, it works much quicker 🙂 Press into prepared baking pan. Top with broken pieces of cookies.
  • Pour sweetened condensed milk over cookies and top with chocolate chips. Bake for 23-25 minutes, until cooked through. Remove from oven.
  • After 5 minutes of cooling, run a plastic knife around edges to loosen, this makes it much easier to remove from foil.  Let cool completely, remove foil from pan, then cut into squares.  I cut off all of the edges before cutting into squares (makes for neater squares), but do whatever you'd like!!

    I have made these a few times. I made them with strawberry cake and the strawberry shortcake Oreos. They turned out great. It made for a fun summer dessert. Thanks for the recipe!

  2. Lee

    Made the recipe exactly as written and it was awesome. Making it again today. Thank you for simple, delicious recipes!

    Hi I had a tea party for my 14 your old b-day. And I made this recipe it was so popular that now 9 of my friend are beging me every day to do that again. It was so GOOD.

    I just wanted to say I made these a few days ago and they were delicious!!! The only change I made was that I also added crushed Andes Candies to the top as well.
    Soooo good.

    I had some difficulty with this. In the end it seemed to turn out fine, but the execution was frustrating.

    1. When you mix using your hands, how do you keep the mix from sticking to your hands instead of staying in the bowl? I had chocolate gloves thick enough to stave off a Minnesota Winter trying to mix this stuff. Do you spray your hands or something? What is the trick? I have always used a mixer when baking.

    2. What amount of cake mix do you use? I used a box of Duncan Hines 16.5oz. The recipe did not specify. The box stated I should use three eggs. The one egg I used in this recipe seemed to have minimal impact on the cake mix.

    3. Without a mixer it would seem easier to have butter that is melted as opposed to softened because of issues with #1.

    I made these and I had the same problem as Charmaine. I think the confusion is in the Devils cake mix. In your photo it looks as if you made the mix as it says on the box and then added the butter and egg. I first started with just the dry mix, butter, and egg and it wasnt mixing at all- very dry. So I went back to your photo and tried again with preparing it like it does on the box. It all bubbled up. Can you please clarify this for me? Thanks!

    *Strain that is lol. Dont want to rock the boat before the ink is dry on the marriage lic. Here! :))

    Ugh…. Daughter just saw this recipe after me telling her we didn’t have any brownie mix. Thanks. Thanks a lot I’m now in the kitchen with the oven turned on with it being a 100* outside!!! No really thanks!!! Didn’t take any arm twisting what so ever. Nada. Not one bit. ;). I was thinking of mixing 1/2 white chocolate and 1/2 milk chocolate morsels. Think that would add to this perfect marriage or put a stain on the ultimate chocolate marriage? Thanks again!

    I’ve made these several times as written and they are very good. My 13 year old chef in training

    Can you please give us some tips on what we might have done wrong for them to not come out right? I used a different cake mix then you called for and salted butter. Could this be the reason it raised and didnt set up at all like the picture? I had the same issue that other people have posted about.

    I saw these on pinterest a few days ago. Seeing as the fact I absolutely love Oreos and my darling husband loves chocolate….these bad boys are baking in my oven as I type and my apartment smells amazing lol I’m bound to wake someone up with the smell of amazing devilish chocolate goodness

    Yeah, these didn’t work for me, either … I was able to salvage the stuff in the middle for a few bars to take to work, but the rest was more mush than anything else. I followed the recipe and didn’t use a glass dish … If I try it again, I might use parchment paper instead of tin foil and spray that sucker down!

    The mush tastes delicious though … we’re saving that to go with ice cream!

    Made this today and they are incredible! Mine came out just like the photo’s and my family has been lifting the cake dish cover all day. My family keeps calling them “Oreo Brownies.” We will be sharing our experience, the recipe and a link to your site in the very near future.

    To those that had problems I can only say that in baking there are always variables, most importantly ingredients. A cake mix with pudding and no-name brand chocolate morsels could make a difference in your outcome. Store brand chocolate chips can be a little “oily,” cake mix with pudding could make it a little too moist causing it to not set well. Forcing your butter to room temperature in the microwave can also result in changes in your end result. There are a lot of reasons for why it works for some and not for others.

    We’re glad we tried them and will make them again. Thanks Jenny!!

      It wouldn’t hurt to store in the fridge. What I like to do is put one bar in the fridge and see how it turns out. I often find treats are much better cold. 🙂

    holy moly these were amazing! but…i ate the entire pan in less than two days!! (my recipe software put the recipe at 5700 calories (479 per bar)- yikes!!)

  15. Rebecca

    I baked mine in a glass casserole dish and they turned out perfect! Just like the picture. Hubby loves them!

  16. Lucy

    Hi – I’m from the U.K and found this on Pinterest and have just made it. It’s amazing!! so good! I think the tray i used was too small so have a lot of thick cake crust on the 4 sides but still good! Great recipe. x

  17. Jade

    Hi! This is kind of ridiculous but I was just wondering if you could just cool it in the fridge or still bake it? Will it still be yummy if you don’t bake it?

  18. joyce

    Should these be refrigerated? Seems like it would make them too hard, but with the milk in them, I was just wondering.

  19. Cindy

    Man,o,man, are these good! I just finished letting them cool & tasted them. They are a bit sticky & gooey, but delicious none the less! You certainly get your chocolate fix with these! Thanks for sharing!
