Oreos 4 Ways

That ingredient you've been missing in your banana bread, cheesecake, truffles and ice cream? Oreos.

Ingredients

  • 36 oreo cookies
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Dark chocolate, melted
  • White chocolate, melted

Steps

  1. Place the oreo cookies in a food processor and pulse until they resemble a fine crumb. Set about 3 tablespoons of crumbs aside.
  2. Beat the remaining crumbs, cream cheese and vanilla extract with an electric mixer until well combined.
  3. Roll into 48 balls and place on a baking sheet lined with wax paper. Place in the freezer until firm, about 30 minutes.
  4. Place a truffle onto a fork and dunk into dark or white chocolate. Return to the wax paper. Sprinkle extra cookie crumbs on top.
  5. Repeat with the remaining truffles. Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 400 milliliters whipping cream
  • 4 eggs
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup crushed oreos + extra for topping

Steps

  1. Beat the whipping cream with an electric mixer until it forms a thick ribbon when the whisk is lifted. Place the cream in the fridge.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs and add the sugar and vanilla. Beat well with an electric mixer until the mixture forms a ribbon when the whisk is lifted and the ribbon remains on the surface of the mixture for a few seconds.
  3. Add half of the egg mixture to the cream, and whisk together. Once they are fully combined, add the remaining egg mixture and gently fold the mixture together and combine. Add the crushed oreos and gently fold to combine. Make sure to be gentle and keep the mixture as airy as possible.
  4. Pour the ice cream into a Tupperware container and top with extra oreos and seal with the lid. Place this in the freezer for 7-8 hours to chill and set.

Ingredients

  • 3 ripe bananas
  • 6 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 15 oreos
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips

Steps

  1. Combine bananas, oil and sugar. Then add the egg, vanilla and salt.
  2. Mix flour, soda and baking powder together in a separate bowl and add to batter.
  3. Pulse the oreos in a food processor until they are broken into small pieces. Add 3/4 of the oreos and mini chocolate chips to the batter.
  4. Pour into a greased loaf pan and top with the remaining oreo crumbs. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes, or until a knife inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean.
  5. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack and cool completely.

Ingredients

  • 12 mini oreos
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • Oreos, crushed

Steps

  1. Line a mini cupcake pan with mini cupcake liners. Place a mini oreo in the base of each liner. These will create the 'crust'.
  2. Beat the cream cheese, sugar, vanilla extract and egg with an electric mixer until smooth and creamy. Dollop into the cupcake liners.
  3. Bake at 350F for 15-20 minutes, or until the center is almost set. Cool completely in the pan, then refrigerate for 3 hours.
  4. Top with some crushed oreos. Enjoy!
