Ever since many of us were young children, we have appreciated a particular treat that just seemed to make us happy, anytime we at it. I’m talking about Oreo cookies, and they were the perfect snack for after school or for anytime we wanted a sweet crunch. Put us in front of a plate of Oreo cookies and a glass of milk and life was good.
Now that we have gotten older, the magic of an Oreo cookie is still there but we might like to experiment with the flavor. That is where these Oreo cheesecake parfaits come in. They are a fantastic sweet treat that is sure to keep you smiling as if you were a kid again.
30 Oreo cookies
4 tbsp butter, melted
2 pkg (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
5 tbsp granulated sugar
1 tsp vanilla sugar
1 cup heavy whipping cream
Chop up half of your cookies and set aside.
Crush the rest of the cookies into tiny pieces. Set aside 4 tbsp of the crushed cookies to use as decoration.
Mix your crushed Oreos with the melted butter and then separate it between your four glasses or serving dishes. Refrigerate the crushed Oreos while you prepare the filling.
In a bowl, blend whip together the granulated sugar, the vanilla sugar and the whipping cream until it starts to make stiff peaks.
Add the cream cheese in and continue to mix until it is all blended together.
Fold in the chopped Oreos.
Scoop the filling into your cups dividing it so they are all even. Sprinkle the extra crumbs on top and refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight.
These are great because they don’t take a lot of time but give you all the sweet taste you need!
