We’ve already shown you how to dunk a regular-sized Oreo cookie while keeping your fingers pristine, how to upgrade Oreos into different desserts, and even make them into lazy ice cream sandwiches. Now we’re going to introduce you to a few other essential Oreo hacks that will give you a brand-new outlook on a classic snack.
#1. Make Oreo Dessert Tacos
Sandra Dennelar went and turned Golden Oreos into sweet little dessert tacos for Cinco de Mayo. If that’s not the best demonstration of the benefits of multiculturalism, I don’t know what is.
#2. Dunk Several Oreo Minis at Once
If you’re the impatient type who likes your dunked Oreos on the soggy side, you need to learn this trick, pronto. All you need is a French press and a lot of milk and cookies. Works best with Mini Oreos.
#3. Oreo Cookie Pops
Want an easy party snack or housewarming gift? Insert some chopsticks,popsicle sticks, or skewers in Oreos, dip them in melted chocolate, and decorate them with colorful sprinkles or frosting as desired. Easy Baked hasa good how-to on this.
You can even utilize mini Oreos to make Oreo pops that might remind you of a certain mouse.
#4. Use Oreos for Simple, Stunning Cupcake Decoration
Speaking of mice, who can resist these adorable cupcakes?
If you don’t like your mice lying down, no problem: you can make ’em upright. Mini ones work here, too.
#5. Group Oreos Dunk
Having a group of people over? Then you definitely need to utilize this nifty hack so everyone can dunk their cookies simultaneously. Hey, it’s cheaper than giving everyone their own glass of milk.
#6. Make Oreo Cream Dip
This hack is so hardcore that I’m pretty sure just watching this video gave me type 2 diabetes. Scrape the filling out of several Oreos into a bowl, heat it up in the microwave until it’s melted, then dip anything you’d like into it.
#7. Make Oreo Ice Pops
Crushed-up Oreos, heavy cream or milk, mini drink cups, popsicle sticks + your freezer = mind-bowing dessert deliciousness. Little Inspiration has a great recipe, but many variations exist.
#8. No-Bake Oreo Bread Pudding
If you liked tips #2 and #5, be sure to check out the official Oreo Snack Hacks Channel on YouTube. My favorite chef Oreo hack comes from Nguyen Tran, co-founder of the restaurant Starry Kitchen. He and his adorable black-and-white dog (named Oreo, ironically) pick up Oreo cookies, diet cherry soda, poundcake slices, and nuts and turn it into bread pudding in a matter of moments.
#9. Hack Your Cake with Oreos
Want your birthday cake to look swanky, but not ready to invest in a fancy frosting kit? Simply frost your cake in a light color and place Oreo wafers in both sizes all over that sucker to create graphic impact.
If you really, really love Oreos, but some of your friends and family members don’t, then make a compromise with this Oreo-shaped, regular-sized cake.
