Welcome to HowToCookThat, I’m Ann Reardon
and today we are making 10 BEST Oreo recipes! Most of these are quick and easy so you can
make some yourself this weekend or just watch the video and wish you got to come over to
my house and eat them 🙂 At number 1 we have the classic 3 ingredient
oreo truffles. For this you will need Oreos, cream cheese
and chocolate. Rather than boring you with all the quantities
for every recipe I’m just going to list them all for you on the howtocookthat.net website
for you and I’ll link to that below. Put the Oreos and the cream cheese into a
food processor and process on high speed until it begins to form a ball. Now if you don’t have a food processor you
can just use a rolling pin and crush up the Oreos into a powder in a bag. And then pour them into a bowl, add the cream
cheese and mix those together well. Take a tablespoon of that mixture and roll
it into a ball and place it on a tray. By using a tablespoon you will make sure that
each one is exactly the same size. Once they are made put them in the fridge
to firm up. Now that they are chilled dip each one in
chocolate just by dropping it in, covering it over, and then using a fork to lift it
out. Tap it on the side of the bowl to get rid
of any excess and place it back onto the baking paper on the tray. You can do them all in white chocolate or
do a mixture of white and milk or you could use dark. And then drizzle them in the contrasting coloured
chocolate just using your fork and letting it run down over the truffles. Or for something different, you could decorate
them by sprinkling on some crushed Oreos. For a more complex Orea truffle with the little
white bit in the middle of each truffle you can see my chocolate truffles video I’ll link
to that below. At number 2 we have Oreo Freakshakes. Take a tall glass and smother around the top
in tempered chocolate just spreading it all the way around. Dip the chocolate into roughly chopped Oreos
so you get them all over the glass and then put that into the freezer for a couple of
minutes. Place a generous amount of ice cream into
a blender and add Oreo Thins and some milk. And blend on high speed until it is smooth. I’m using Oreo Thins, not normal Oreos here
and that’s because there’s a higher ratio of filling to the biscuit bit, which means
we are going to get more of that vanilla filling taste in our milkshake. Add some more chocolate to the inside of the
glass and then pour in the thickshake. Pipe the whipped cream around the rim at the
top of the glass then into the centre and up in the middle. Drizzle that with more chocolate, then decorate
with mini Oreos and serve immediately. At number 3 we have Deep Fried Chocolate Oreos. To make these you’ll need one batch of the
donut dough and you need to let that rise once – if you don’t know how to make Donut
Dough search for “Reardon and Donuts” and you’ll find the video on how to make that. Break off a piece of the dough and flatten
it out, then add an Oreo to the centre. And then wrap the dough around the Oreo squeezing
it together and sealing it in, rolling it slightly to smooth it out. And you want to place those on a tray and
leave them in a warm place to rise. And you’re like me, you may want to add an
extra square of chocolate to each Oreo before you enclose it in dough, so you get a bit
of gooey chocolate in each one. After they have risen place them in hot oil
and let them fry on each side until they are golden brown. Then dip the tops in sugar and place them
on some paper towel. Serve them while they are still hot so you
get that gooey melted chocolate in the middle. At number 4 we have 3-Ingredient Oreo Fudge. All you need for this one is Oreos, sweetened
condensed milk and white chocolate. Roughly chop your Oreos and then pour the
sweetened condensed milk over the white chocolate. I love way sweetented condensed milk just
runs down. And then heat that in the microwave until
the chocolate is melted. Stir it together well until you can’t see
any more streaks of melted chocolate and then add in your Oreos and stir again, you don’t
want to over-mix this because we want big chunks of Oreos in it. Pour that into a lined tray, then spread it
out right into all of those corners. Add mini Oreos on top or you could use some
chunks of normal Oreos if you don’t have minis. Then place that in the fridge to set. Once it is firm use the baking paper to lift
it our of the tin. Then slice it into even squares and place
onto a board or plate to serve. Next is Super-Easy Ice Cream Sandwiches. All you for this is icecream and 2 packes
of Oreos. Take one pack and smash it using a rolling
pin and then pour that into a bowl and then leave it for a few minutes to soften. Stir it all around to mix the Oreo chunks
and the Oreo crumbs all the way into the vanilla icecream. And then once it is mixed you could eat it
just like this or tip it into a lined baking tray, spread it out, and put it back in the
freezer for an hour or two to re-harden. Open up the other packet of Oreos and remove
the filling. Then use a cookie cutter to cut cylinders
of ice cream. Place one end on a cookie and then push the
icecream out of the cutter and then add another cookie on top. And you have an Oreo icecream sandwich. You are going to want to place those in a
freezer of course until you are ready to serve them. Next, we have to make an Oreo Cheesecake… For this you will need cream cheese, sugar,
milk, cream, Oreos, chocolate, gelatin, water, butter and more Oreos for the base. Melt the margarine or butter in the microwave. Process one lot of your Oreos until you have
fine crumbs – or you could of course bash these with a rolling pin like I showed you
earlier. Then add in the melted butter and stir to
combine. Line the sides and base of a container with
non-stick baking paper and then add the Oreo mixture. And spread that out to make the base of your
cheesecake. Place that in the fridge while we make our
filling. Add the cold water to the gelatin, stir well
and leave to one side. Place the cream cheese and sugar into the
bowl of an electric mixer and mix together until you have a smooth mixture. Now add in your milk and whip together until
there are no lumps. Now you want to split that mixture into three
bowls – one, two, three, making the third one slightly bigger. To the bigger bowl add some vanilla and stir
that through. And for our second bowl crush up a packet
of Oreos, just hit them with a rolling pin again, it doesn’t matter if there are still
some chunks in there, we can have some big bits and little bits, that’s fine. And then for the last bowl you want to take
a scoop of the cream cheese mixture and stir it well into the melted chocolate, then add
that back into to the bowl and mix it together. Place the cream in a separate bowl and whip
to form soft peaks. Place the gelatin in the microwave to melt
it. Split the whipped cream up evenly between
the three bowls. Add three tablespoons of gelatin to the vanilla
bowl and fold it altogether. Pour the vanilla layer onto the base and then
put that back in the freezer for about 15 minutes. Add 2 tablespoons of gelatin to the Oreo layer
and mix that together really well so your cream and gelatin are all mixed in. Then pour the Oreo layer over the vanilla
one and return it to the freezer. Once it is starting to set we are ready for
our chocoalte layer but by now your gelatin will definitely be set – just microwave that
again for 20 seconds to melt it. Add it to the chocolate mixture, folding it
together, mixing it up really well and then pour over the Oreo layer. You want to give it a little shake to smooth
it and then put the whole thing back in the freezer overnight. Freezing it just makes it easy to get it out
of the container. All you need to do is put it in some hot water
until you feel it loosen from the edges. Then you can pull it out, peel the baking
paper off the bottom and place it on a cake stand or plate. Peel the paper off the outside and then pipe
dollops of cream going around the outside dragging it in towards the centre of the cheesecake,
Once you get all the way around the edge then just start to make another smaller circle
in the same way on top of that cream about half-way in. Then when you get to the middle add some extra
cream piled up in the middle and then place Oreos around the top and some Oreo wafer sticks
piled up in the middle. Finish that off by sprinkling it with some
crushed Oreo. And then you want to cover that in plastic
wrap and let it defrost in the fridge overnight before serving. For number 7 it’s time for me to invent some
new recipes for you – how about a super easy 2 ingredient Oreo mousse. I have a theory that if I chuck a packet of
Oreos in a bowl with a carton of cream, cover in plastic wrap and leave in the fridge overnight
– then by the morning the Oreos should be soft and it should whip up into a thick mousse
without the need for any other ingredients – hopefully. It’s working! It’s thickening up beautifully. Place that into serving glasses and decorate
with mini Oreos and a sprinkling of grated chocolate. Yummmy and so EASY to make. At number 8 we have the cutest mini cakes
you’ve ever seen. All you need for this is cream, icing sugar,
vanilla and of course Oreos. Add the vanilla and the icing sugar to the
cream and whip that until you get firm peaks. Place an Oreo on some baking paper, add some
cream, another Oreo, more cream – don’t worry if it goes over the edge that’s fine. Top with another Oreo, more cream and now
spread the cream evenly around the sides and level off the top so that it looks like a
tall cake. Now I’m going to decorate this one with sprinkles
on the side all the way around and a little icing flower on top in the middle and more
sprinkles. Now if you leave these in a sealed container
in the fridge for a few hours or overnight before serving the Oreos will soften and then
it will be like layers of cake. You will of course probably need to make one
cake per person. Next we have Mint Oreo Plant Pots. All you need for this is some of my easy 2
ingredient Oreo mousse and a little peppermint essence to taste. Stir it together and spoon into mini plant
pots. I like to use glazed ones so they can be washed
in the dishwasher. And then spoon some crushed Oreos over the
top. You can spread this around and flatten it
down but then make sure you sprinkle some extra loose bits on top so it looks like dirt. Just before serving add a sprig of mint into
the top of each one. And these will have your guests asking “are
they edible?” followed by “how did you make them?” Number 10 is OREO ART and this one is over
to YOU! Take an Oreo, open it up and draw something
– anything – in the icing. Take a picture of it and upload it on the
