Triple Chocolate Brownie Bars

After I had my first baby, several friends brought over meals during the following week.  One of those meals arrived with a box of chocolates.  On the card was written, “every woman who just gave birth deserves a box of chocolate”.  Well, I couldn’t have agreed more!
This little rule is one that I have never forgotten.  When I am delivering meals to new moms, I  always make sure to include a little chocolate.  A mommy friend of mine recently delivered her third baby boy, these Triple Chocolate Brownie Bars were most definitely deserved!
Triple Chocolate Brownie Bars
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons cocoa powder
2 cups chocolate chips
1/2 cup peanut butter
20 Oreo cookies
Preheat oven to 350.
Line an 8 x 8 cake pan with foil and spray with nonstick cooking spray.
In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream butter and sugar until fluffy.
Add eggs one at a time and mix to combine.
then stir in vanilla.
Add in cocoa powder and mix well.

While baking, crush the remaining Oreos in a ziplock bag.
When brownies are finished baking, remove from the oven
and sprinkle with 1/2 cup chocolate chips and crushed Oreos.
Place back in the oven for about 2-3 minutes.
During this time, melt remaining chocolate chips and peanut butter together.
Remove brownies from oven and pour melted chocolate mixture over the top.
Use a spatula to spread the chocolate evenly.Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours.

Let brownies sit at room temperature for 15 minutes before cutting.
