~~~~~~~~~Warning: This dessert is VERY rich! and YUMMY!
And it all starts with store bought Oatmeal Cookies.
from: Chocolate Chocolate and More Chocolate
1/2 cup butter
2 cups crisp Oatmeal Cookies
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup butter
1 large egg
2 cups confectionar's sugar
1/2 cup chopped pecans
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Crust: Melt 1/2 cup butter in medium saucepan over low heat or in a glass bowl in the microwave.
Crush cookies. Using a food processor or chopper is the easiest way to do this.
Combine melted butter and cookie crumbs until moist and buttery throughout. Reserve 1/4 cup for topping. Press remaining crumb into the bottom of a greased 8X8 pan. (I doubled the recipe for a 13X9 pan). Bake for 5-10 minutes until you can smell the crust baking.
Remove from oven and cool completely.
Heat chocolate and 1/2 cup butter in a medium saucepan on lowest heat.
Stir often until chocolate is almost melted. Remove from heat and stir until smooth.
Add egg and beat well. Also add in sugar a bit at a time and stir until you have a smooth consistency. Stir in pecans.
Spread evenly over cooled crust. Sprinkle reserved crumbs over top. (I forgot to save some so I just sprinkled some graham crackers on top. oops.) Chill until firm.
Cut these into small pieces and make sure you have some milk handy :)
Enjoy and share!
Happy Full Plate Thursday!
