Oreo No-Bake Cookies

So, I've been wanting to try my hand at this recipe for a while.  I’d been a little nervous about it because I really wasn't sure if it would work.  I was pretty sure it would taste good but I literally didn't know if it would work…. as in, if the cookies would firm up right.

That’s the thing with this food blogging gig… sometimes I try stuff and I don’t love it.  For every ten recipes that make it here on the blog, there’s one or two that I don’t love enough to cook again.  That’s my criteria, by the way...  if I wouldn't bother to cook it again, I don’t publish it on the blog.

IN EE WAAAY… my other no-bake cookies have peanut butter in them.  I didn't want peanut butter in these and decided that if I used double-stuffed Oreos, the cream would serve the same purpose as the peanut butter.  I hoped.

So, I whipped up a batch, spooned them out, said a little prayer and hoped for the best.  And guess what?  They’re amazeballs!!!


No-Bake Oreo Cookies
22 double-stuffed Oreo cookies
2 cups sugar
Pinch of salt
1/2 cup cocoa
1 stick butter (1/2 cup)
2/3 cup milk
3 cups quick-cook oatmeal (uncooked)
Waxed paper

Place Oreo cookies in a gallon-sized zip-top bag and crush with a mallet or rolling pin; set aside.

In a large saucepan bring to a boil the sugar, salt, cocoa, butter and milk. Boil mixture over medium heat for 1 full minute. Remove from heat immediately.

Add oatmeal and crushed Oreos then stir until thoroughly incorporated. On a sheet of waxed paper, drop mixture by the teaspoonful.  Cool until set and firm.

  4. Oreo no bake cookies?! This is a fabulous idea. Now that it's summer and the heat is already unbearable, I'm not even thinking about turning on my oven. No bake desserts from here until September! Must try these soon. :)

  5. These are cooling in the fridge right now! Kids were eating them before I put them in and I'm excited for them to be done! Also tried the cheesy chicken enchilada today for dinner. Wasn't too bad! My 1&4 year old hated them and for the hubby's sake might try to remove the cream cheese next time but I liked it =) just found your blog yesterday. And you seem like we would get along great w your sarcasm ;)
