So, I made these awhile ago – and almost forgot to post them (gasp!). So here they are, in all their Golden Oreo-glory. You know, I actually meant to use regular Birthday Cake Chocolate Oreos, but they didn’t have them, so I thought ‘Hey why not try Birthday Cake Golden Oreos?’ I have to say I’m pretty glad, these were the perfect vanilla-birthday cake flavor. They didn’t even need chocolate, if you can believe that. But of course either will work.
I love those classic, simple recipes that you can put a MILLION twists on. One of those is Rice Krispies Treats. For a holiday version, I made these Peppermint Bark Rice Krispies awhile back, and man were they good! I think you can use pretty much any kind of cereal, plus delicious add-ins like chocolate or peanut butter, and then, you can top it with melted chocolate and candies or sprinkles (the options are endless).
I know that’s a mouthful, but hopefully your mouth can be full of Birthday Cake-Oreo Pretzel Cookies soon. Last week I decided to make some sort of ‘cookies n’ cream’ cookie, & when I went to store I found out it was national pretzel day. As I was shopping for some pretzels to add in, I saw them… Birthday Cake Oreos (wwwhat?). I couldn’t not buy them. Let me tell you, they are good… dare I say, better than regular Oreos. The end result: the cookies were kind of crispy on the edges, but very chewy & soft in the middle. The most delicious kind of cookie, if you ask me. You could also break up the pretzels in the cookies too, but I just like the way they look on the top.
