*This recipe was initially posted in January, 2013.
When I first posted this recipe again in January, 2013 (omg how is that 5 years in the past?!) I knew it will be successful. I hadn’t ever seen something like this earlier than, and naturally, any likelihood I’ve to make selfmade Oreo filling I’m all in.
I imply, I’m 100% a filling woman…is there even some extent to consuming a non-Double Stuf Oreo? I imply, until you’re on a food plan or one thing? I did create an entire recipe for Cookie Filling Dip…it’s actually the easiest way to portion management your filling to cookie ratio.
Anyhow, that is actually a subsequent stage Oreo deal with. You have chocolate, Oreo cookies, AND a heavy-handed serving to of cream filling. Plus, you don’t have to show in your oven, and I truly maintain mine within the freezer in the course of the heat months for a candy deal with after I’m within the temper. Which, lets be actual, is just about all the time.
I’m all about bark. It’s like a lazy particular person’s sweet. No molds essential.
Start by chopping up some good darkish chocolate. I say “nice” as a result of the higher high quality chocolate you employ, the higher this can be. Then seize some Oreos. This can be one of many solely occasions I say to make use of food plan Oreos. You don’t want the additional filling within the crushed bits, since you’re going to deal with the filling state of affairs by yourself…And chop them up very finely. You can use a meals processor, a blender, or a knife and a reducing board, simply be certain that there aren’t giant items.
Melt half the chocolate and stir in your crumbs.
Spread that on a lined baking sheet and place it within the freezer to arrange.
While the chocolate is chilling, make the filling.
Oreo ought to actually bundle their filling and promote it by itself…I imply…
When your chocolate is about, unfold the filling on prime…
All the way in which to the perimeters, and chill this whilst you put together the remaining chocolate and cookies.
Now repeat the method once more. Melt the remaining chocolate and crush up seven extra Oreo cookies. Spread this on prime of the filling…Seriously.
Let that entire state of affairs arrange (I do place it within the freezer to hurry up the method) after which reduce it into items…
It may break up a bit, however that’s superb…it’s a messy, scrumptious excuse for dessert.
You could make this as skinny or thick as you like, simply don’t unfold the chocolate too skinny, because it received’t maintain collectively very nicely.
