After all the baking I have been doing over the last few weeks, I decided to take it easy this week and make some cookies and cream peanut butter. I first saw this recipe over on Picky Palate's site and thought it looked interesting. I was wrong, it is amazing. Seriously, I don't know if I am ever going to be able to bring myself to eat regular peanut butter ever again! I sent it in to my daughter's preschool for snack with some apples and the kids all loved it, the parents who tried it loved, my skeptical sister-in-law, who took one look at the strange color and raised her eyebrow at me, loved it! Basically, everyone loves it! So go grab yourself a pack of Oreos, some white chocolate chips and a jar of peanut butter and get started. It's super easy and quick and well worth the 5 minutes it will take you to make and the extra 10 it will take you to tear apart your cupboards looking for a lid for the jar you put it in!
Crush up your Oreos...
Melt your chips and 2 Tbps. peanut butter in a double broiler
Mix Oreos, melted chips and peanut butter together
Cookies and Cream Peanut Butter
from Picky Palate
2 cup plus 2 Tbsp. creamy peanut butter
10 Oreo cookies
1 cup white chocolate chips
First, crush up your Oreo cookies. You can do this a number of ways, by placing them in a ziploc bag and breaking them up by hand or a rolling pin, or you can put them in a food processor.
Note: If you place them in a food processor, try not to over crush them, they should still be kind of coarse with some sizeable chunks. If you do over crush them, no real big deal...just be aware that if you mix the fine crumbs in really well with the peanut butter it makes a weird color...learn from my mistakes people! LOL
Next, melt your chips and 2 Tbsp. of peanut butter over a double broiler or in the microwave.
In a larger bowl, add the 2 cups of peanut butter, the melted chips/peanut butter and the Oreo crumbs. Mix as little or as much as you want. You can leave swirls of Oreo crumbs or mix it until it is all incorporated like I did. Place your peanut butter in a jar and try not to eat it all in 24 hours. Ours has been in the house for 4 days or so, so I guess that means we have some self-control...well at least a few of us do!
