date night: concoctions in the kitchen

so really nothing yesterday went the way i planned. i didn't have school so i was going to go to the grocery store, pick up some crafting supplies, prepare an oh-so-enlightening bible study, and boo and i were going to use our gift card to montgomery inn. well as it turned out, my car had to be worked on, leaving me stuck at home, and our water softener and sink were leaking, so we had people coming in and out of the house all day. to top it off we got lots of snow and ice and the roads were pretty bad. so instead of a fancy evening out, boo and i decided to go to the local mexican restaurant just down the road and experiment with some baking at home. of course, there was lots of goofing off and laughing. it actually turned out to be one of the most fun nights we've had!

let me just say that this first dessert was all boo's idea. he literally wanted everything in this dessert. we layered cookie dough on the bottom and boo placed oreos, reese cups and carmello pieces (yuck) in the middle. 

then, i mixed up some brownie mix and walnuts and poured it on top. we baked it at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes (but truthfully i cant remember the exact time) 

the layered concoction was just okay to me...but then we made something else...something heavenly :)

...oreo stuffed chocolate chip cookies. 

we used this recipe for the cookies and placed the dough around the oreos. we baked at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes.

 and oh. my. goodness. they are so yummy. i don't know if my life will ever be the same after eating these. 

so here's to days and nights that don't go as planned, cozy nights in, lots of laughing with the one you love, and delicious desserts that probably cause diabetes and heart failure :)
