Happy 100th Birthday Oreo Cookies - Triple Chocolate Cookie

This recipe is from here.

This no-bake treat that looks much more complicated than it really is.

  • 1 pkg. Oreo cookies
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 package JELL-O chocolate instant pudding
  • 12 to 16 Baker's semi-sweet chocolate squares
  • 4 to 8 Bakers white chocolate squares

In a small bowl, make a paste out of the pudding and the milk. Put 36 of the Oreos into a gallon-size zip-top bag and crush them (with a rolling pin or a mallet). Add the crushed cookies to the pudding mixture and stir will. Form the mixture into small balls and place on a wax-paper lined cookie sheet; freeze them for about 10 minutes.

While they're in the freezer, place the semi-sweet chocolate squares in a microwave-safe bowl and heat, stirring often, until melted. Dip the chilled oreo balls into the melted chocolate, place them on a fresh wax-paper lined cookie sheet, and refrigerate or freeze for another 10 minutes.

Melt the white chocolate squares, and drizzle the melted white chocolate over the cookie balls using a fork or a spoon. Return them to the refrigerator to harden briefly before serving.

Makes 40 to 45 cookie balls

I saw on the Internet that today is the 100 anniversary of the Oreo Cookie. Read all about it here. I couldn't resist posting this recipe even though I haven't made it yet. I'm not thrilled with how the recipe is written. They don't say what size pudding box to use. (the 3 or 6 oz size? I'm guessing the smaller one) I would also use the almond bark chocolate that you can get at Walmart and is pictured below. It also comes in the chocolate flavor.
