Making Oreo-flavored desserts



There are various different ways to make oreos into a more delicious dessert.

Oreos are a childhood favorite sandwich cookie that has been around since 1912. Oreos are made up of two chocolate biscuits which are stuck together with sweet cream filling. While Oreos themselves are sweet treats, much can be done with them. From cheesecakes to donuts, oreos add flavors to any sweet treat.

Vegan Oreo Donuts 

Found on the website Crazy Vegan Kitchen, vegan Oreo donuts feature a spin on a classic dessert, specifically catering to the vegan community. Price wise it was pretty cheap for how much we could produce. For the donuts, we used almond milk instead of whole milk, vegetable oil instead of eggs, and a pack of Oreos. The entire cost of the recipe came up to $14, but since most of the ingredients such as flour and baking powder are reusable throughout other recipes, the expense was worth it. After we baked them, we decorated the top with vegan chocolate icing that only required vegan chocolate (3$) to be melted. This classic dessert with a spin of Oreos and vegan flavors, makes the perfect combination of sweetness without dairy for those who choose not to consume dairy products. The donuts took us 5 minutes to prepare and 12 minutes to bake. Overall we rate these an 8/10 because they were easy to make, tasted good, and were healthier than an average donut. 

Oreo Cheesecake Bites

Another recipe we made was Oreo Cheesecake Bites. These only took around 15 minutes to make. The only downside was that they had to stay in the fridge for 24 hours. The cheesecake took a bit more effort than the donuts. The main ingredients, apart from Oreos included sour cream, cream cheese, and heavy whipping cream which were about $5 each. For the effort, the ingredients were a bit pricey, but the cheesecake requires these basic creamy ingredients. After whipping them together, we set them up in molds and froze them for an hour. We removed them too soon and realized they were not completed.  We tasted them after a day and they were much better. The cheesecake texture shone through. Overall we rated this a 7/10 because it required a good amount of effort, and took a long time to even eat, however, it was a delight that we enjoyed. 

Oreo Milkshake 

The final recipe we made was a simple and fast Oreo milkshake. The milkshake required a blender and consisted of 4 ingredients: Oreos, almond milk, ice cream, and whipped cream.  We saved a few chopped Oreos at the end to serve as a topping for the whipped cream. Our ingredients did not include any baking products such as flour or eggs, instead, we used basic milkshake components. We paid $5 for a pack of Oreos and $4 for a small Häagen-Dazs Vanilla ice cream. Overall, the milkshake tasted spectacular and did not require additional ingredients or steps. The effortless recipe and delicious taste, helped us rate this Oreo recipe a 10/10. 

Experimenting with these recipes is a fun way to discover what one could do with Oreos. Each of these recipes was fun to make and tasted great.
