There is nothing like a cookie to hit the spot. And wow, did these do the trick. I love Oreo’s soooo much! You’ve probably noticed from the many Oreo recipes I have blogged about lately that I am working my way through a craze. Hopefully you can join me because these are darn good.
I made these for my friends when I was at their house for dinner last week. They were actually a follow up to the cajun chicken pasta I posted about on Monday. It was quite a decadent evening hehe and a much needed one! Not only was it wonderful for my daughter to have a playmate, but it was great to socialize with some old friends, myself : )
If you are overwhelmed with too much chocolate than you can easily change things up with these cookies. Instead of chocolate chips, you can use peanut butter or white chocolate chips. Instead of regular Oreo’s you can use golden one’s or maybe just change up the flavor by choosing mint Oreo’s. They are pretty versatile to suit your own tastes.
And where does the crunch come into play with these chocolate fudge Oreo “crunch” cookies? Well, the contrasting textures of course! The cookies themselves are soft and chewy, like that of a chocolate chip cookie. With the addition of Oreo’s there are not only melted chocolate chips but crunchy chocolate cookies as well. It’s ammmmmazing! What a wonderful cookie for all of us chocolate lover’s out there ; )
