Recipes to Tame Your Sweet Tooth

With the holidays coming up it seems the line at the grocery store is always too long, you hit every red light on your way home, and there is never enough time in the day to get everything done. Below I have 2 different desserts that are so easy and quick, but that leave everyone wanting more! Each dessert’s main ingredient: OREOS! Because who doesn’t love Oreos? Sign up to bring the dessert for your next party and give yourself more time to get other things done with these recipes.


The first recipe is definitely one that tastes better than it looks. This is just a fun recipe if you are feeling inspired to try something new and have the extra time. I don’t recommend taking this to a party but it tastes so good that I had to share it with you!fullsizeoutput_2291

Cookies ‘N Creme Brûlée

(Serves 8)

16 Oreo Cookies

4 Cups heavy cream

2 Tsp Vanilla

6 Egg Yolks

1/2 Cup of Sugar

Step 1: Preheat the oven to 300° F/150°C. Start by separating the cookie, putting the filling in a bowl and the cookies in a plastic bag. Crush the cookies until they are fine and set aside.fullsizeoutput_2281

Step 2: Heat 4 cups of heavy cream and filling in a saucepan, over medium heat, and whisk until the filling has melted down but stop before it comes to a boil. Add vanilla and remove from heat. Cover and set aside.

Step 3: In a bowl, whisk 6 egg yolks and 1/2 cup of sugar. Add the cream mixture one cup at a time, tempering the egg yolks until it is all incorporated. (If you add it in all at once it will cook the eggs)fullsizeoutput_2283

Step 4: Place ramekins on a baking pan and fill to the top with the mixture. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of the cookie crumbs over each ramekin.

Step 5: Fill the pan with hot/boiling water and bake for 45 minutes at 300°F.

Step 6: Remove the pan and cover the ramekins. Careful they are hot! Chef Tip: Remove them with a spatula so you don’t burn yourself. Let them refrigerate for 2 hours. I know bummer…

Step 7: Once they have set, add 2 teaspoons of sugar to the top as a layer. Shake each dish to make sure the sugar is even and then broil or torch until caramelized.fullsizeoutput_228e

Step 8: My personal favorite step –  Enjoy!!fullsizeoutput_2290


fullsizeoutput_2294Cookies ‘N Cream Rice Krispy Treats

This is your basic Rice Krispy Treat recipe jazzed up with Oreos!

6 cups of Rice Krispy’s

20-25 Oreo cookies- chopped

5 cups of mini marshmallows

4 Tbsp butter

1 cup of white chocolate – melted (optional)

Step 1: Grease a 9X13 dish with cooking spray or butter.

Step 2: Chop the Oreos in half, putting them in a large plastic bag. Then smash them into different sized chunks. Add the cereal to the bag of Oreo’s.fullsizeoutput_2286

Step 3: In a medium/large saucepan melt the butter slowly. When it has almost completely melted, add the marshmallows. I use the mini ones because they melt faster but you can use a bag of the original ones if you’d like.

Step 4: Once this has melted entirely combine all the ingredients together in the pan.

Step 5: After it is all mixed, put the mixture in the dish and flatten as needed.fullsizeoutput_2287

Step 6: Let it cool. Once it is cool you can melt the white chocolate and drizzle on top for an extra, little added touch. You can also crush up a few more Oreos and add them to the top or even sprinkles for some color.fullsizeoutput_2293

The Oreos and white chocolate drizzle give this classic recipe a new twist that everyone will love!

  1. Cookies and cream are my favourite! good collection of sweet recipes. And that creme brulee looks amazing. But I am so intimidated to try a cookies and cream version. The couple of vanilla ones I’ve tried never set properly.

  3. I love that you wrote that you don’t recommend taking the first one to a party. I instantly thought, “More for ME!” They both look wonderful and you just can’t go wrong with Oreos! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

  4. Giiiirl, my office is going to love you once they find that I got these recipes from you. Everyone is obsessed with Oreos, so it’ll be fun to bring in one (or all!) of these for the holiday party.
