Homemade Oreos are one of my very favorite cookies, I just love their texture and unique flavor. Last time I made them we decided to roll them in crushed candy canes so they would look more festive for the holidays. Oh my, they were delicious. My six year old said, “Mom, these are so good. They taste like that green ice cream with the oreos in it.” He was right they do taste like mint cookies and cream ice cream. These holiday inspired oreos will be hit where ever you decide to take them this Christmas Season.
Homemade Oreo Cookies
2 boxes Devils food cake mix
1/2 cup flour
3/4 cup oil
Mix cake mixes and flour. Blend in oil and eggs. Form into inch size balls and place two inches apart on cookie sheet. (This is where I put an M&M on half of them.) Bake at 350 degrees or 8-10 minutes. Let cook completely and then put them together with cream cheese frosting and roll in crushed candy canes.
Cream Cheese Frosting
1 8 oz cream cheese, softened
1 cube butter or margarine, softened
1 tsp vanilla
4 cups powdered sugar
5-6 finely crushed peppermint candy canes
Combine cream cheese and butter with hand mixer. Add vanilla and powdered sugar until desired consistency. Spread on one cookie, then sandwich in between another.
