Oreo Brownie Bites

I can’t believe I haven’t posted about these brownies before!!! There are gooey bites of heaven!! The concept is basically an Oreo Ball on top of a brownie!!!

Ingredients:

  • Brownie Mix (any ingredients the box calls for)
  • One package of Oreos ( I always use double stuffed)
  • One bag of chocolate chips ( I use milk, feel free to use whatever kind you prefer)
  • One block of cream cheese (Do yourself a favor don’t skimp on the cream cheese use name brand)

Make brownies according to package, however, use a tiny muffin tin to place batter in. Bake these until brownies are cooked through, I think around 12 minutes.

While brownies are baking it is time to make the Oreo Balls. I now do it a way a coworker told me about. I separate the cookie part from the creme. Add all cookies into food processor, grind them up then add Oreo cream, and then the block of cream cheese. Just makes for a nice texture. You can also do it crunchy and throw all the Oreos into a ziploc bag and hammer it until the cows come home. You can place this mixture into fridge until brownies are ready.

After brownies have come out of the oven, and are cooled. I take a scoop of Oreo balls and scoop it onto each brownie bite.

Here is tricky step, Take the newly scooped brownies and place them in the fridge. When you are dipping into chocolate it will be so much easier if the Oreo mixture is chilled onto brownie. If you don’t have time to refrigerate I would just drip chocolate over with a spoon.

So melt your chocolate, and dip each bite into making a chocolate layer over the whole brownie.

I like to eat them chilled, I think it tastes better but many people eat them at room temp too!

 

You could alter this recipe by making a normal pan of brownies, in 9X13 pan adding Oreo mixture on top and then chocolate, it would just be a messier cut, and messier to eat but would taste the same I’m sure!

White Trash Cake

So ya’ll I made me some cake. My mom’s friend told me about this cake on the beach and I had to try it. So here was her description. You buy one of those throw away cake pans. ( I got the lasagna kind cuz I planned on a big ol cake). Put down the ice cream sandwiches, plop on cool whip, and squeeze on some caramel sauce, and chocolate sauce. Repeat, ice cream sandwiches, cool whip, sauce, and then crushed health bar over the top, and let it set in the freezer for while.

But here’s what I did, I got the hot fudge, and caramel from the glass. Smucker’s, I’m not a fan of the sauces. I also bought snickers bar, and Twix, and had left over oreo from my oreo brittle. Check it out here: Oreo Brittle

So I unwrapped 12 ice cream sandwiches and arranged them in my huge lasagna pan. I spread the TUB of cool whip over the whole thing, and I used about 3/4 so I am going to have to go back out for another tub. UGH.

I heated up the hot fudge, and didn’t pay attention to it… (of course) and this happened.

Sprinkled on the hot fudge and caramel. Then just when it wasn’t enough added on those oreos for a filling. I put it back in the freezer to set before I did the next layer.

And Repeat: More Ice cream Sandwiches

 

More cool whip, more hot fudge and caramel and THEN topped with Crushed Snickers and Twix Bars. ( I bought the small fun size bars that come in 8 packs).

So overall I was very happy that I chose the caramel and real hot fudge, because it was so tasty. The Twix and snickers were a good choice too. Such a tasty dessert and super easy to make. There are so many variations you can make with this cake, they make Neapolitan bars, mint bars, different kinds of cool whip and a variety if toppings- any candy bar, health-milky way-peppermint patties.

So we only ate some at my nail party, and then I brought it to the family party the next day, and it was A HIT! Everyone loved it.

Success!

Oreo Brittle- STUPID EASY.

Okay, who likes Cookies n Creme Bars? I do. Wouldn’t they be SO GREAT as a dessert? To share? at a Party?

I think so- its a fun snack party dessert food thats STUPID easy to make, tasty, and CHEAP.

  • White Chocolate Chips
  • Package of Oreos
  • Tbs of Canola Oil

Melt the choco chips in the microwave, by the way I used Ghiradelli choco chips because they were all sale this week. But then I bought the Guaranteed One dollar Oreos. I probably should of just used the real thing, but hey, I didn’t taste a difference.

So melt them, until they are melted. you know the easy stuff. Dont forget to add a little bit of oil. Crush a package of oreos and mix them in. Except I didn’t use the whole package, mostly half. So do that. use half. I used a 9x 13 pan to spread out over the pan. I popped it in the freezer because I am impatient. Took it out and broke it into pieces. BAM oreo brittle. so fun. so tasty. so easy. I am storing them in the freezer until my Jamberry Nails Party on friday! :)

 

Success!

 

Chocolate Oreo Poke Cake You look DELISH.

And guess what. It was. I saw this many times all over Pinterest and thought to myself, the kids would love to make these.

Poke Cake 

Poke Cake, seemed very Mid-west. My mom is from Michigan and I visit every where and I know those mid-westerners love to pudding and jello in everything. Green Jello, mayonaise, they do it all. But this recipe actually looked good, so I had to try it, with my own spin of course. Perfect dessert for a Tuesday night Recipe.

So I got your average chocolate cake box and made it like it said on the the box. But there is only a few of us girls at TND’s so I figured I didnt need the whole thing, so I split the cake into two casserole looking shaped pans. I gave one the cakes to the boy I babysitt for him to make his own poke cake. I kept one and only used one box of pudding because I was only using half the cake.

It was tons of fun poking the cake and pouring in the oreo brand pudding. Once it cooled, I decided that it wasnt complete without cool whip… I mean cmon. Then I crushed my  one dollar guaranteed value oreos (thanks stop and shop) all over the cake… and it was DELISH. The cake is so most and it was just a plethora of chocolate goodness. But not too much.

All Poked!

Pudding Poured ( I dont have a picture of the final product)

Then JT made his poke cake, with vanilla pudding, and REAL whipped cream, (from a can) and we topped them with the special edition birthday cake oreos I bought earlier in the week and hated. and his cake was MARVELOUS TOO.

My mini chef, notice his pokes, He loved poking the cake.

So over all its just a great recipe. And everyone at TND’s loved it. I have been brainstorming other ways to make it, Lemon? Pumpkin? Stay tuned!!

Success!!!
