Speculoos & Pumpkin Spice Oreo Lasagna

Serve lasagna for dessert! This dessert lasagna is made with graham crackers, golden pumpkin Oreos, cream cheese, cool whip, and cookie butter. In other words, delicious.

Biscoff & Pumpkin Spice Oreo Lasagna 1

After how big of a hit the chocolate peanut butter cup lasagna was last year, it seemed like a no brainer to try it again with another beloved spread – Speculoos aka Biscoff. With the help of some pumpkin spice Oreos, this dessert lasagna disappeared just as quickly as the peanut butter version. I brought it to a chili cook off and there wasn’t a single dollop left by the end of the night – people were scraping up every last bit of it. Basically, if you are looking for a killer make-ahead dessert for an upcoming party then look no further. Pumpkin is totally acceptable after Thanksgiving.

Serves 24

Ingredients:

CHOCOLATE DRIZZLE

1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

1/3 cup heavy cream

FILLING

2 (8 oz.) packages cream cheese, room temperature

1-1/2 cups Biscoff or Speculoos cookie spread

1 cup powdered sugar

1 cup heavy cream

1 tsp vanilla extract

16 oz. frozen whipped topping, thawed

15 whole graham crackers

1 (12.2 oz.) box Golden Oreos with Pumpkin Spice Creme

1 cup mini semisweet chocolate chips

TOPPING

8 oz. frozen whipped topping, thawed

1/4 cup toffee bits

Directions:

  1. For the chocolate drizzle, melt the chocolate chips and heavy cream together in the microwave in 15 second increments, stirring until smooth. Set aside to cool.

Gently press a layer of Oreos into the filling and top with another 1/3 of the filling. Sprinkle with 1/3 of the chocolate chips and top with another layer of crackers followed by the final 1/3 of the filling.
  4. Frost with whipped topping, and sprinkle the top with the remaining chocolate chips and toffee bits. Drizzle with chocolate. Chill for at least 4-6 hours before cutting into 24 squares.

Caramel Apple Oreo Truffles

You can make Oreo truffles out of any of the different flavors of Oreo. Try this caramel apple version, dipped in chocolate to resemble an actual caramel apple.

Caramel Apple Oreo Truffles 1

Happy Halloween! It seems fitting that today is also caramel apple day and since Oreo was thoughtful enough to make a caramel apple creme golden Oreo I went ahead and made truffles out of them. I even dipped them in green and light brown chocolate candy coating to resemble a caramel dipped apple on a stick. Or a green buckeye depending on how you look at it.

Reese’s Oreo Chocolate Cake with Funfetti Cookie Dough Filling

Ever have trouble deciding on your favorite kind of cake? Combine them all in one with Reese’s, Oreos, Funfetti, and cookie dough.

Reese's Oreo Chocolate Cake with Funfetti Cookie Dough Filling 3

Remember when I told you how most of my friends (and myself) are turning 30 in the next 12 months? Well today marks my friend Maggie’s 30th birthday! Last year she made the wild request for her birthday dessert to include cheesecake, cookie dough, funfetti and Oreos and you better believe I delivered with what I dubbed birthday explosion mini cheesecakes. This year however she was a bit stumped as last years dessert topped anything should could have ever imagined. She did finally challenge me by requesting the same combination plus Reese’s peanut butter cups. It took me lots of brainstorming to finally decide on what to make.

Reese's Oreo Chocolate Cake with Funfetti Cookie Dough Filling 1

This cake should be named “All of Maggie’s Favorite Things”. It is a chocolate cake with chopped Reese’s and Oreos mixed in, Funfetti cookie dough filling, chocolate ganache, Funfetti frosting, and more Reese’s and Oreos on top. Now that’s a birthday cake! I fear for her 31st birthday. We may need to regress to simpler ideas.

What is your ideal birthday dessert?

Mini Reese’s-Oreo Cheesecakes

Reese’s and Oreo lovers unite! These mini Reese’s-Oreo cheesecakes not only have bits of peanut butter cup Oreo in them, but also as the crust. Top it off with a peanut butter-chocolate ganache.

Mini Reeses-Oreo Cheesecakes 1

As you may have noticed I love trying all the different kinds of Oreos they come out with. I stand by my belief that peanut butter Oreos were the best flavor ever. As such when I spotted the Reese’s peanut butter cup ones they jumped into my shopping basket. Their filling is half chocolate/half peanut butter giving them the flavor of a peanut butter cup sandwiched between chocolate Oreo cookies.

When I decided to chop them up and mix them into cheesecake I thought about making the cheesecake peanut butter flavored, but instead let the Oreos shine through on their own (not that I would’ve argued with more peanut butter). With Oreos as the crust, pieces in the cheesecake, and a peanut butter-chocolate ganache there’s nothing missing.

No-Churn Root Beer Float Golden Oreo Ice Cream

Instead of putting ice cream in your root beer to make a root beer float, put the root beer in your ice cream! Made with root beer creme flavored Oreos and root beer syrup.

No-Churn Root Beer Float Golden Oreo Ice Cream 1

You would think with my root beer obsession that it would also include root beer floats. You would be wrong in this assumption. I prefer root beer to be served in a cold glass, untarnished by any other ingredients. However I have discovered that I do enjoy it cooked into sloppy joes, pulled pork, brownies, and chocolate cake. So when I passed by a display of the newest Oreo flavors I couldn’t resist snatching up a package of the root beer float creme flavored golden Oreos. It took me awhile to decide what to make and ended up throwing them into yet another no-churn ice cream recipe. And guess what? I freaking loved it! Apparently as far as root beer float flavored desserts go, I am sold. I even made a root beer syrup which is just root beer cooked down. Maybe I should revisit an actual root beer float?

P.S. This recipe was also inspired by my upcoming trip to Seattle with Kita to visit Peabody next month! We’re going on a root beer (and any other spectacular foods we can get our hands on) adventure!

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Chess Pie

Chess pie gets a whole new look with a chocolate cookie crust, peanut butter filling, and chocolate chips. Peanut butter & chocolate lovers will rejoice!

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Chess Pie 1

Today marks a special day. No it’s not my blogiversary nor is it my birthday (but it will be in just over 1 week). Today is my 1000th post! The last time I celebrated a post # mile marker it was for post #100 – Stuffed Oatmeal Raisinet Cookies. Here we are 900 posts later and you’d think I would have lined up something extra spectacular to celebrate. Unfortunately I did not plan ahead by contacting my favorite products/companies to host a giveaway and alas I did not possess the fundage to provide it myself. So you know what you’re going to get? A pie straight to the face!

Yes I am going to hit you in the face with a pie and you’re going to like it. And by that I mean I’m going to show you the pictures and recipe for this pie and you will be so intensely drawn in that before you realize what’s going on, your face is pressed against the computer screen attempting to devour it. How do I know this? Because (assuming you love PB+Choc) it’s Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Chess Pie!

Chess pie doesn’t have to be “just pie” (derived from Southerners’ dialect: it’s jes’ pie). I already proved that by making a meyer lemon version but decided to take it a step further by using a chocolate cookie crust, throwing peanut butter into the filling, and sprinkling chocolate chips all over the place. Evidently there was room for more sugar. Happy 1000th, I’ll see you next time.

Mini Rainbow Cheesecake Bites

These mini rainbow cheesecake bites have a hidden piece of gold on the bottom – a golden Oreo. Perfect for St. Patrick’s Day!

Mini Rainbow Cheesecake Bites 2

For St. Patrick’s Day last year, I made Hidden Pot o’ Gold Cupcakes which had gold colored cores hidden inside and rainbows on top to lead the way. Added to my repertoire this year are these mini rainbow cheesecake bites with a hidden piece of gold underneath, in the form of a golden Oreo! A marshmallow crispie golden Oreo in fact, but any golden Oreo variety will suffice.

These vibrantly colored treats are made by dividing the cheesecake mixture into 6 small bowls, dying them according to the rainbow, and then spooning each in rainbow order into a mini cheesecake pan. Don’t have a mini cheesecake pan? You can use a cupcake pan with cupcake liners but they will be slightly bigger cheesecakes and therefore yield less than 12.

Cookie Dough Oreo Cake

By now I am sure all of you are aware of one of the newest additions to the Oreo lineup, cookie dough. Personally I think that homemade versions such as Lindsay’s (Love & Olive Oil) and Tessa’s peanut butter ones (Handle the Heat) would win hands down. For the purposes of this cake however, homemade Oreos were not necessary. Chopped up Cookie Dough Oreos were mixed into the chocolate cake and used as decoration, but the real purpose of this creation was to make a cake that resembled a giant Cookie Dough Oreo covered in frosting. And if I do say so myself, I believe I succeeded.

Cookie Dough Oreo Cake 1

I made this cake for my step-mom’s birthday. It consists of super moist layers of chocolate cake with bits of Cookie Dough Oreo which are sandwiched around a layer of cookie dough filling, then swaddled in cookie dough frosting and topped with chocolate chips and more Cookie Dough Oreos. There’s some serious cookie-on-cookie action going on here. If you’re feeling really ballsy, serve it up with a scoop of Cookie Dough Oreo ice cream. I stuck with plain vanilla.

Birthday Explosion Mini Cheesecakes

I made these Cookie Dough-Funfetti-Oreo Mini Cheesecakes, aka Birthday Explosion Mini Cheesecakes, for my friend Maggie’s birthday yesterday. Originally she has requested cookie dough mini cheesecakes that she had seen on Pinterest, but when I asked her to show me the specific pin she started sending me all kinds of cookie dough cheesecake variations. One with Oreo, one with Funfetti, and many other variations of the same concept.

Birthday Explosion Mini Cheesecakes 1

In stead of trying to decide which she would like best, I went ahead and put them all together into one spectacular dessert because the birthday girl should have it all! Hence the subsequent birthday explosion (similar to my birthday overload pancakes earlier this year). An Oreo cookie is used for the crust, topped with cookie dough which ends up being in the middle of a Funfetti cheesecake. But wait, there’s more! It’s then topped off with an Oreo whipped cream, miniature chocolate chip cookie, and of course SPRINKLES. The only thing it might be missing is peanut butter ;-).

Valentine’s Funfetti 7 Layer Bars

What is a holiday without some festive Funfetti recipes? A holiday lacking a whole lot of fun, that’s what. So I took it upon myself to make sure you got your dose of Funfetti this Valentine’s Day with a 7-layer bar. I really enjoying making these bars, because it’s an easy way to use up things in the pantry leftover from a previous baking expedition. Such as cherry baking chips. And typical for 7-layer bars, these will disappear as magically as they appeared.

While we are on the subject of disappearing acts, I’ve learned something about portion sizes and their relation to how quickly they will get eaten. Take these bars for example. When I first brought them into work I had them sliced into 24 bars, but my labmates cut them into fourths in an effort to feel less guilty about eating such a decadent treat. Of course they were neglecting to notice that instead of eating one or two fourths of a whole bar, they were eating 6ish = 1.5 bars. If they had just eaten the bar as I had cut it originally, they would have actually consumed less of it! Yet somehow the guilt factor is different. The moral of the story? Ignorance is bliss (and now I know how to deceive them O:-) ).
