Let me introduce Southern Crack and Slutty Brownies

Now, now get your head out of the gutter. These are not the names of whatever it was that you were thinking. These are scrumptious desserts! I have made the brownies when I lived up north after hearing about the recipe from a friend. The Southern Crack is a nickname for a Southern snack featuring saltines, chocolate, butter, and toffee/caramel. The latter was brought to me by one of my student’s families and it was delicious. I figured it is about time that I try out the recipe and bake it myself. Both of these treats are easy to make and best of all you do not need any cooking skills. They are usually a hit at potlucks or holiday gatherings. Below, I’ll share both recipes with you and how they are made.


Slutty Brownies



1 box of brownie mix

1 package of Oreo cookies

1 roll of ready made of Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

Any size baking pan you choose


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees

2.Make the brownie mix following the directions on the back of the box

3. Put the brownie mix on the side

4. Line the bottom of the baking pan with the pre-made chocolate chip cookie dough by gently pressing the cookie dough into the bottom of the pan to create an even layer.

5. Add a layer of Oreo cookies on top of the chocolate chip cookie dough (you may not need the whole Oreo cookie package you got)

6. Pour the brownie mix that you made earlier on top of the Oreo cookies and the chocolate chip cookie dough and make sure the brownie mix is even

7. Bake for 30-35 minutes

8. Use a knife to check if the brownies are done.  Remember you do not want to over cook because the chocolate chip cookie layer will get overdone or burn.

9. Enjoy!
