You’re getting a two-fer today because of President’s Day!*
*not really. You’re most likely getting a two-fer because I am far too lazy to do two separate posts. That’s like asking me to donate my right lung, which for the record, I would never do. I was given two, so I’m assuming I need both. Unlike the appendix which seems to serve no purpose but to make people sweat and be in pain until it’s inevitably ripped out in the middle of the night.
Regardless, I don’t have much to say about either of these recipes since the pictures kind of explain themselves. Am I right or am I SO freaking right it’s irritating?
That’s what I thought.
First up, I should say that during my purchase of the new Birthday Cake Oreos I totally made an ass out of myself and am still thinking about my stupid mistake days later.
You see, I was at Target with my sister and the checkstand lines were ridick. Finally, I chose one and placed my Birthday Oreos and a bunch of unnecessary dollar bin crap (because I’m a sucker for that stuff) on the belt and proceeded checkout like normal people who aren’t at all awkward and lame do.
When she scanned my Oreos, the nice, normal checker-lady said, “these Oreos have been flying off the shelves. Have you tried them?”
To which the normal, sane, calm-under-average-circumstances-Hayley disappeared into thin air and awkward Hayley emerged full of inappropriate things at the ready and replied, “no, I haven’t. But when I saw them, I knew I had to try them. I’m going to eat them naked, and then I’m going to dip them in chocolate.”
To which the nice, normal checker-lady responded with nothing but a straight face and nodded.
As if awkward-Hayley couldn’t get any more ridiculous, she did. “I’ll definitely let you know how they turn out!” I said to the checker-lady before leaving.
It wasn’t until I was out the door that I realized I totally told that cashier I was going to eat these Oreos naked. But what I meant to say was that I was going to eat the cookie plain. Not naked. No Oreos will ever be eaten in the nude in this household. Ever.
I don’t even like Oreos enough to eat them half-naked, let alone full-on butt naked. And here I had told this innocent woman all about my upcoming bare-assed escapades with these cookies. I wouldn’t be surprised if that poor woman left work early that day to go home and cry in the fetal position in the furthest corner of her house, clearly traumatized by the image of me eating Oreos in the buff.
It was funny later, like when I was dipping these cookies FULLY CLOTHED with a mixture of white chocolate and cake mix in my kitchen. But not as I was leaving the store, face-flushed with embarrassment and disappointment.
I swear to god I’m going to choke awkward-Hayley to death with these Cake Batter Oreos as soon as I can.
That, or bring a huge plate of these Breeseo Cups to that cashier lady who was subjected to my craziness.
What is a Breeseo Cup, you ask? This may help:
1 box brownie mix, prepared according to package directions
About 16 Reese’s PB Cups (the normal sized ones), unwrapped
About 16 Oreo cookies
1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Line 2 muffin tins with about 16 paper liners. Set aside.
2. Start by putting a small teaspoon of brownie batter on the bottom of each muffin cup, spreading it around lightly to coat the bottom. Next, take an Oreo cookie and smoosh it right on top of the batter. Then, take a PB cup and place it inverted (bottom up) on top of the Oreo cookie. Follow that by dropping a heaping Tablespoonful of brownie batter on top. Try to drop the batter toward the middle so it will naturally fall to the sides of the muffin cup; otherwise, gently push the batter down the sides.
3. Bake for approx. 15 minutes or until the tops are set. Do not overbake. Allow to cool for about 30 minutes before handling. Store airtight at room temperature for about 1-2 days.
Now, for the celebration. As if chocolate, creme, brownies and peanut butter could not be celebratory enough.
This idea is nothing new, but it begs to be brought to your attention since it is easy, adorable and freaking fantastically delicious. So, um, start dipping, beyotches.
1 pkg Birthday Cake Oreos (I found mine at Target, but Walmart is also selling them too–they’re limited edition ones for Oreo’s 100th Birthday)
1 pkg white chocolate almond bark
About 3 Tbsp yellow cake mix
Rainbow sequin sprinkles or jimmies
1. Start by foil-lining a baking sheet and setting it to the side. Next, in a microwaveable bowl, prepare your almond bark according to package directions so it’s smooth & melted. Stir the yellow cake mix, one Tablespoon at a time, into the melted chocolate.
2. Take an Oreo and dip it into the chocolate mixture, turning it to coat completely with a fork. Gently lift the cookie out from the chocolate and allow the excess to drip off before placing it onto the foil-lined baking sheet. Sprinkle immediately with sprinkles, and repeat until all cookies are coated.
3. Store these airtight in the freezer for about a week.
Have a happy Monday!
