There are Oreos…
And then, there are…
So, here’s the story behind these little bites of deliciousness. When it comes to Oreo cookies, I’m
one of five people the only person in the world who actually prefers the chocolate cookie component over the creamy filling. I know. Crazy stuff.
So when I had a few Oreo cookies left over after I made these crazy bars, I had a fun idea. What if I remove the filling from the Oreo cookie, and replace it with Chobani Greek yogurt? … better yet, what if I remove the filling and replace it with CHO that has chocolate cookies mixed into it?
And thus, the CHOreo was born. My new favorite chocolate sandwich cookie!
Oreo cookies without the creme filling! Replace the filling with a thick and creamy Greek yogurt filling for a chocolatey, cheesecake like treat.
Makes 1 dozen
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: n/a
- 2 cups Chobani vanilla Greek yogurt
- 16 Oreo cookies
Line a small bowl or plastic container with paper towels. Place the yogurt in the bowl and refrigerate at least six hours, or overnight (this will allow the yogurt to thicken).
Reserve four Oreo cookies. With the remaining cookies, remove the creme filling (alternatively, you can keep the filling, and just separate the cookies into halves).
Place the remaining Oreo cookies in the bowl of a food processor; chop until crushed. Stir the crushed cookies into the strained yogurt. Spoon the yogurt into a small plastic (ziploc) bag; using scissors, cut a 1/4-inch opening off one corner of the bag. Pipe the yogurt filling onto one cookie half, then top with another cookie half.
Refrigerate the cookies until serving. For best results, serve the cookies soon after piping the yogurt onto the cookies (as the chocolate cookies will soften over time).[/print_this]
