It is no exaggeration to say this is one of the most amazing dessert spreads you’ll ever make. One tiny taste and you’ll agree that this Oreo Cookie Butter is quite literally life changing. It’s hard to believe that such a decadent chocolatey treat could be so simple, but this Oreo dessert is made in minutes with a few ingredients and no oven or mixer.

Oreo Cookie Butter is such an easy recipe, any one could make it as long as they have a microwave. You don’t even need a food processor, although it makes it much easier. If you don’t have a processor, remove the filling from the Oreos and place the cookies in a heavy plastic zipper bag. Crush with a rolling pin or other flat, hard object until a fine crumb. Melt the creme filling with the milk mixture before following the rest of the recipe.

If you like a chunkier cookie spread, chop up extra Oreo cookies to fold in. Make the Oreo Cookie Butter as usual and allow to cool on the counter for 10 minutes. Stir in the chopped Oreo pieces and then refrigerate at least an hour until set. Allowing the mixture to cool first keeps the Oreo chunks from dissolving and they stay crispy.



This Oreo Cookie Butter is a great homemade edible gift, it will really wow the lucky person you give it to. No judgement if that person is yourself. For gifting, divide the Oreo Cookie Butter into small mason jars and use a handwritten recipe card as part of the gift tag. A beautiful black and white checkered ribbon would go with the cookies and cream flavor perfectly!

Technically you could make Oreo Cookie Butter with other ingredients, or even other cookies, but honestly this spread is perfection just the way it is. The only variation we would suggest is different flavors of Oreos, like peppermint Oreos at Christmas. Instead of variations or substitutions, we’ve got a list below of all the delicious ways you can use Oreo Cookie Butter!

  • Store: Seal Oreo Cookie Butter in a mason jar or other airtight container and keep refrigerated for up to 2 weeks. Bring to room temperature to serve if you like the spread soft.

  1. Hi what is Evaporated Milk? How is it different from condenced milk? Can i replace the evaporated milk with more condenced or heavy cream?

    1. There is more sugar in the condensed milk, I haven’t tried swapping the two so I don’t know how much it will effect the flavor or consistency.

  2. Yummy! This looks so delicious and scrumptious! My daughter and her boyfriend are going to love making this recipe! I can’t wait to share this with them!
