Crafting Ahead of Time: A Strategic Approach

Given the multiple layers involved, you can prepare components in advance for an efficient assembly. The crust and brownie layers can be baked and stored for a day or two, while the mousse layer can be mixed and refrigerated overnight. As the bars require chilling before serving, planning ahead ensures a seamless and delightful experience.

Ensuring the Divine Storage of Chocolate Bliss Bars

Store your Chocolate Bliss Bars in the refrigerator, securely covered, to preserve their divine essence. These heavenly treats will maintain their decadence for up to 3-4 days.

Recipe: Crafting Chocolate Bliss Bars

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). Spray a 9×13-inch (23×33 cm) baking dish with non-stick spray.

Crust:

  • Process Oreo cookies in a food processor until finely crumbed. Set aside ¼ cup for topping.
  • In a large bowl, combine the remaining cookie crumbs with melted butter until fully incorporated.
  • Press the mixture into the prepared baking dish.

Brownie Layer:

  • In a large bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt.
  • Using a stand mixer or hand-held mixer, beat eggs, sugar, butter, and vanilla until light and fluffy.
  • With the mixer off, add the flour mixture. Mix until well combined.
  • Carefully pour brownie batter over the Oreo crust. Bake for 25-30 minutes until barely set. Allow it to cool to room temperature.

Chocolate Mousse Layer:

  • In a large bowl, beat milk, pudding mix, and confectioners’ sugar until soft-set (about 2 minutes).
  • Fold in 8 ounces of whipped topping until fully combined. Spread over the cooled brownie layer.
  • Transfer the bars to the refrigerator to chill for at least 1-1 ½ hours.

Finishing Touches:

  • Once chilled, drizzle hot fudge over the mousse layer.
  • Top with the remaining whipped cream and reserved cookie crumbs.
  • Enjoy immediately or store in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
