what i made for monday - easy oreo truffle bar - only six ingredients!

Oh man.  I know I say this a lot...but you are really not going to like me for showing you these.  They are AMAZING.  A close number two to the No-Bake Peanut Butter bars from a few days ago.  
I found a recipe for these on Chef in Training and tweaked it a bit.  Brownies are one of those things that I don't feel needs to be made from scratch.  So I don't.  I hope you enjoy my simplified version of these AMAZING Oreo truffle bars.

All you need is:
your favorite box brownie mix (and the ingredients listed to prepare them- oil and eggs)
one package of Oreos
5 oz of cream cheese
10oz of chocolate candy coating
I used chocolate...but you could try white chocolate or peppermint? 
Line your brownie pan with parchment paper or treat the pan per directions on the box.  But really, if you aren't using parchment paper when you bake, your life is harder than it needs to be.

Bake the brownies as directed in a 9 by 13in pan and leave them in the pan when done. 
 Meanwhile...get out your handy food processor...or use a ziplock bag and hammer of sorts...
And crush the Oreos into a fine mixture with no big lumps. 
Add the crumbs to a mixing bowl...
And add in the cream cheese.  Mix until it's all incorporated together.  
Spread the Oreo and cream cheese mixture on top of your cooled brownies.  
Spread until smooth...
Melt the candy coating in the microwave according to the directions on the package.  My chocolate said to heat for 20-30 seconds, stir, heat, stir, etc until smooth.  You could also use a double boiler for this, too.  Once it's fully melted, pour on top of Oreo/cream cheese/brownies.  Spread all over.  Sprinkle the still melted chocolate with broken up Oreos, sprinkles, candy bits, etc.      
Once it is set, use your parchment paper to lift the bars out in one big piece. 
Using a SHARP knife score and cut into just the chocolate shell...
Then with a plastic knife or spreader cut into the bottom layers.  This will keep the brownies from sticking to your knife.  

Enjoy and share with friends!
