If you can’t get enough of Oreos, then you’ll love these 25+ Easy Oreo Dessert Recipes. You can use these wonderful cookies in everything from bread, cake, brownies, candy, and so much more.
When you’re baking, sometimes the best addition you can make to any recipe are store bought oreo cookies. These crunchy cookies go with so many delicious desserts! For each of these recipes you’ll find simple step-by-step instructions for how to make these easy desserts. There are lots of holiday recipes included as well as oreo desserts that you’ll enjoy all year long.
These desserts are especially great because just like oreos, they’re incredibly kid-friendly. Plus, many of them are easy enough that, if you have kids, they can help you make them. You can make most these easy desserts in less than an hour, and enjoy them with your family or with any guests you have over. They’re the perfect way to change things up and try something new that you know everyone will love!
A lot of the recipes in this post call for oreo crumbs or crushed Oreos. To easily make the crumbs put the cookies in a zip-lock bag and use a rolling pin or other tool to break them down. It’s an easy way to start an oreo crust, or make an oreo crumb topping. If you have any extra oreo crumbs you can always use them to sprinkle over another dessert.
There’s also a secret Oreo hack. Scroll to the end to see how you can turn a regular Oreo into a SOFT OREO COOKIE.
Peppermint Oreo Balls are crushed Oreo cookies and cream cheese dipped in sweet chocolate then rolled in crushed peppermint candies. They're the PERFECT no-bake sweet indulgent treat to serve or gift this holiday season!
Oreos are delicious, crispy chocolatey cookies. But have you ever wanted a Soft Oreo Cookie? Chewy and soft as though they were just baked? The secret is easy but requires a bit of patience.
Open your package of Oreos and leave it to “get stale” on the counter or in your refrigerator. As moisture is added to the cookies from the air the cookies naturally soften in 2-3 days, going from break in half crispy to bend in half soft.
Alternately you can microwave the cookies on 20% power with a cup of water in the microwave next to it for 20-30 second increments until they’re softened, but the creme will get hot before they soften.
Using the moisture in the air will give you delicious, soft Oreos. You may never want to eat them crispy again!
