These are one of those bar-cookie-brownie desserts that are easy to put together, and great for pot-lucks and entertaining. They’re super rich, but easily cut into small pieces so you can eat a little or a lot. The red-velvet brownie layer is covered with an Oreo truffle layer, and the whole darn thing is smothered in melted chocolate and mini chocolate chips.
