My oreo-cookie non-recipes

I suppose these are kindof non-recipes since they are kind of made up. But they are quick & easy and chocolately.

Easy Chocolate Cream Pie (loosely based on my mom's Black Forest Pie)

Crust
1 1/2 - 2 cups oreo cookie crumbs (I did 1 1/2 but it wasn't quite enough for my pie tin, but I kindof like it thick)
3-4 Tblsp melted butter

Combine melted butter with crushed oreos and press in pie tin - refrigerate until hard - like 30 minutes

Filling
1 small package instant chocolate pudding
1 cup milk
1 8 oz size Cool Whip

Blend for 1 minute with wire whisk or mixer the chocolate pudding and milk. Fold in 1/2 the container of cool whip into chocolate mixture.

Put chocolate pudding mixture in pie tin on top of oreo crust. Then put the rest of the cool whip on top. Sprinkle some left over crushed oreos on top to make it lovely. (alterations... today I put 1/2 can of raspberry pie filling in between chocolate and cool whip layer).


Oreo Cream Cheese balls
(My friend told me about this recipe so I don't have any measurements but I'd thought I'd throw it out there in case any of you want to try it. I'm not going to make it because Jimmy doesn't love cream cheese and if I make it then I will eat them all and every bit will go to my waist and hips and behind)

Take a bunch of oreos and squash them in your food processor (or i'm sure the ziplock bag and meat pounder would work).

Then put cream cheese in and mash it all together.

Scoop that oreo/cream cheese mixture into miniature balls.

Dip in melted DARK CHOCOLATE (okay - if you must, you can use milk chocolate).

Put in fridge or freezer or they'll be all gooey. Enjoy!

Way to go on making your own recipes. These sounds delectible!

Yum Heath! I'm going to have to try these. I'm trying to switch over to dark chocolate. I can tolerate it now whereas before I just couldn't do it. Somethings I even prefer with semi-sweet rather than milk chocolate, although I am a milk chocolate fan!
