Gooey Cookies and Cream Double Chocolate Cake Bars

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.

Press into pan until even.

I’ve baked a thing or two with these bad boys haven’t I? Take 14 of them and break them into pieces.

Place them evenly over top.

  • 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


  • 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 ๐Ÿ™‚ 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.ย  Let cool completely, remove foil from pan, then cut into squares.ย  I cut off all of the edges before cutting into squares (makes for neater squares), but do whatever you'd like!!

    I made this tonight and instead of using chocolate chips I used white chip and chocolate Oreos it was so delicious.

    I made these last night for my son’s birthday treat at school. He was fixated on having 2 things, so I also tried a Butterfinger version. Oh my!! Instead of Devil’s Food cake mix I used Yellow Cake mix. And I substituted smashed Butterfinger pieces ( I poured what looked to be an equal amount to the smashed Oreos in a bag and then broke them up with my rolling pin. I also used milk chocolate chips. Everything else is the same. I have to say that this version is EVEN BETTER than the Oreo version!

    Sounded so good but it was rough mixing and spreading the cake mix in the pan. Almost gave up. Followed instructions, and actually just took them out about 15 minutes ago (made for Valentines Day). The edges are burnt like I kept them in too long but the middle isn’t done. I don’t know what I did wrong. Very disappointed, that was my Valentines Day dessert. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I found these on Pinterest & HAD to try them! Made them for the superbowl. SO GOOD! Directions were very easy to follow, the only trouble I had was getting the super sticky cake base to stay on the foil because it was sticking to my hands…so I used a spatula to press it down & it worked great. I will definitely be using this as my “go to” dessert from now on! I’m going to make them for my man for Valentines day & use red velvet cake as the base & white chocolate chips! Thanks for the recipe!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I made these and they are pretty good. I would call them really good brownies. I didn’t use the foil. Just greased the pan. I only put 1 cup of chocolate chips.

  6. Angela

    I did not get a firm dough, mine stuck to my hands very bad, I had to scrape it off and could barely get it to stick to the foil in the pan because it kept sticking to my hands, its about to go in the oven I will let you know how it turns out

    1. Annie

      Mine stuck to my hands very bad too….next time use a greased up spatula to press it down, I had someone help me and it worked really good.

  7. Shay D

    Loved this idea, and I took it in a new direction…used those limited edition LEMON OREOS, lemon bar mix and followed these directions to see if I could pull off a LEMON ooey gooey version…they are in the oven now. I will keep you posted

  8. Sarah

    I made these for the family dessert around thanksgiving, they were sooo amazing we finished them in two days!! I do not recommend putting wax paper over the pan like I did because it was very gooey and dripped in the pan anyways! I was just trying to not have to wash another pan! Amazing recipe, very sweet and delish!

  9. Monique

    I’m making these tonight! But my devils food cake mix says oil eggs and water. Do I follow the box or what you have listed? And if so I have medium eggs only do I use 2 of them?? Please help!!

    1. Sarah

      I knew they were done by just monioring the color or the sweetened condesned milk, you dont want it to turn dark.

  10. Lydia

    I’m making these tonight, but I bought Reese’s peanut butter chips to substitute for the chocolate chips to add a little peanut buttery flavor. This recipe looks delicious, I’m so excited to try them!

  11. elizabeth@genuineefforts

    I made these and thought they were pretty good. Mostly I liked that they were adaptable. My boyfriend and I were discussing that the method was perhaps more interesting than the recipe itself. White cake mix, white oreos, and butterscotch or coconut, or white chocolate chips. Or maybe white cake mix with nutter butter cookies and peanut butter chips or butterscotch chips? I wanted to think of a way to use a spice cake mix but have not yet thought of a complementary cookie, but I do think coconut would be a good topping, like a carrot cake theme.

  12. Jennifer Hunt

    These were so delicious! I made them right after I found this post on pinterest and we ate them right out of the pan. They were delicious and gooey while hot, but when they cooled down, ohmygooodness…I was in chocolately heaven! The sweetened condensed milk made like a layer of caramel, and the chocolate chips just kinda sat on top, and it was just oh so good! My daughter and I will be making these tonight to take to our family Thanksgiving Dinner. Thanks for this awesome bie of heaven!

    I live in Spain and I don’t have devil’s food cake mix to sell here… you have some idea to substitute it?
    another question: is this mix baked before you put the broken oreo?

  14. Kristyn

    Only had 7 Oreos on hand so I improvised and added Grasshopper cookies (the ones that taste like GS thin mints). Oh my! Delish!

  15. Jenn

    I’ve made these twice now. They don’t look like your picture, really, either, but they didn’t crater like some other posters have complained about. what really gets me is how you did all that with only 14 Oreos. I’ve had to add quite a few extra to cover the whole 9×13 pan. Maybe I should be using a smaller one? They are tasty and stay soft even after being left out overnight, uncovered. I’ll keep making these and sharing them at pot lucks. Just don’t know what I’m doing differently that makes them look different than yours. lol

  16. Maggie

    I think reading the comments that they key may be to spread the crust up the sides some so that the milk doesn’t leak over it into the bottom of the pan. Just finished making this and waiting for it to cool…looks good so far!

  17. Jenn

    Alright! Making these today. But those chocolate chips… They aren’t I the actual recipe. What kind did you use and how much? Is it basically whatever is on hand and however much you want?

  18. Hun8bee

    I really like the way you photograph each step! It smells delicious and I am going to decorate halloween style but no Halloween Oreos in my store yet;(

  19. Andrea :)

    I just made these .. Oh my ! So good. Words can’t describe
    Yum yum .. Big hit with my family.
    Thanks for sharing .

  20. Trish Meals

    I really hope to fix this recipe tomorrow evening for my family, but need to know if you used semi sweet chocolate chips or milk chocolate! I noticed a lot of your recipes just say chocolate chips, so I don’t know if you just base it on preference or if there’s just one you use all the time.

  21. Rachel

    Are these easy to cut and serve? Are they like brownies or chocolate cake? I back for a large group of people weekly and steer clear of anything requiring plates and forks.

  22. Mary

    My stuff ended up like Charmain’s everything sunk to the middle and the cake baked up in weird places. I followed the recipe exactly. I’m hoping it takes waaaay better than it looks. I’m just sad that it wont look impressive when I take them to the office tomorrow ๐Ÿ™

  23. Cassie

    How far in advance could these be made? If I made them the night before and took to work the next day would it be okay?

  24. Naomi

    I’m making these now but used the peanut butter cream filled oreos, and am baking it into a pie crust. I’m sure it’s going to be fantastic as well but will be in a pie! Kind of excited.
