Deep-Fried Oreos

Deep-fried Oreos are a hit on fairgrounds and boardwalks across America. Dipped in buttermilk pancake mix, make these at home for an early taste of summer.

Oreo Cheesecake Brownies

Bake Oreo cookies inside the brownie batter for a fun new way to eat a brownie. We drizzled the top with cream cheese frosting and chopped Oreos for an over-the-top favorite.

Emeril Lagasse's Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie

What goes better than chocolate and peanut butter? Remove the filling from the Oreos to make a fabulous crunchy crust.

Strawberry Oreo Cupcakes

Add chopped strawberries to the cupcake batter as well as to the icing to add a nice burst of pink color.

Sunny Anderson's Chocolate Chip Butterscotch Pie

This pie uses an Oreo cookie crust for an extra chocolaty treat. Topped with chocolate chips and butterscotch sauce, the mascarpone filling adds a tangy, light touch to this sinful dessert.

Coconut Mint Oreo Sundae

This simple sundae looks extra elegant with chocolate-decorated glasses. Chill the glasses, then drizzle melted chocolate inside for a sundae we can't refuse.

Cookies and Cream Brownies

This recipe is simple to prepare and has delicious results. Great for bake sales, the use of brownie mix cuts your prep time in half.
