Today there is something for everyone.
The chocolate lovers.
The coffee addicts.
The cookies and cream die-hards.
The peanut butter obsessed.
And obviously the “I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream” people.
Yup, this one’s got it all and it’s so good.
The idea behind these came from my mom. She loved the original Peanut Butter Oreos that I made back in the day when my photos were so embarrassing. She actually said they were maybe her favorite cookie I have ever made and possibly even her favorite cookie period.
She kind of says that every time I make any cookie. So really, I can not be sure. But trust me, she has good judgment. Homemade trumps store-bought any day. Especially when there is peanut butter involved. Peanut butter makes everything better.
Oh and so does things dipped in chocolate. I think we should just start dipping everything in chocolate from now on. K?
Really, these are pretty simple.
You make the cookies a little bigger than a normal Oreo, then you spread the the cream filling on one side and plop a nice big scoop of mocha ice cream right on top. Oh yes, it’s gettin good isn’t it?
Next throw the bottom halves of the sandwiches (the ones with the ice cream) in the freezer for a little bit so they don’t just melt all over you when you take a big old bite. Trust me, do this. It really helps keep everything together. Well those are getting all cooled off spread the other half of the cookie with any remaining cream filling and lots of peanut butter.
Ok, now quickly mix up the magic shell and start getting real excited. Like real, real excited.
Remove the bottoms of the sandwiches from the freezer and place the peanut butter half (peanut butter side meats the ice cream) right smack on top of the mocha ice cream.
Immediately dip into the the magic shell.
Let harden two minutes…….
No really, go. It’s Friday and that obviously means you need these. Okay and maybe this too.
