Dutch Oven Original Sin

What is more sinful that chocolate???? When it comes in the form of a gooey brownie over rich Oreo's and topped with vanilla ice cream, I would say nothing in the food world can be more sinful. This dessert is perfect for camping trips or back yard parties. The texture of the brownie is devilishly gooey and full of fudge goodness. The Oreos soften into a delicious crust with warm cream filling. Just make sure you have people to share with when you make this dessert. The finished product is so good that you will want to keep it all for yourself, but it is so rich that you know you cannot make it through! S'mores??? Who needs them when you have Original Sin?!?!
 25 Oreo Sandwich Cookies
1/2 Cup Vegetable Oil
1 Cup Sugar
2 Eggs
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
1/4 teaspoon Salt
1/4 teaspoon Baking Powder
1/2 Cup All Purpose Flour
3 Tablespoons (Heaping) Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
3 Tablespoons Butter, Melted

1. Grease the inside of a 10-inch Dutch Oven with butter. Line the bottom with cookies to form an even layer.
2. Combine the oil, sugar, eggs and vanilla in a large bowl. Whisk to combine.
3. In a separate bowl, combined salt, baking powder, flour and cocoa.
4. Slowly whisk the dry ingredients into the wet. Add the melted butter. Stir until thoroughly combined.
5. Pour the batter over the cookies, making sure to cover all cookies and fill in all spaces.
6. Place the lid on the Dutch Oven.
7. Bake with 5 hot coals (grey and ashy) on the bottom and 15 on top.
8. Allow to bake until completely set on top. The inside will still be gooey. This should take 30-40 minutes but will depend on how hot the coals are when placed on the oven.
9. Carefully remove from the coals.
10. Spoon into a bowl and serve with ice cream.

Note: This delicious dessert can be made in a traditional oven. Simply use a 9-inch cake pan instead of the Dutch Oven. Bake at 350-degrees for 25-35 minutes, checking often to not overcook.
