This is a quick treat that the family will love.
For the crust:
4 Tbsp butter
For the filling:
3/4 cup white chocolate chips
6 oz Cream cheese, at room temperature
12 Oreo’s, roughly chopped
For the topping:
6 Oreo’s, roughly chopped
3/4 cups dark chocolate chips
Here’s how you put this together:
For the crust
Place 24 Oreo’s in a plastic baggy and smash them into crumbs with a rolling pin. Melt butter in the microwave and combine Oreo crumbs with the butter and press into a 9 inch square pan that has been lined with aluminum foil or parchment paper. Set aside.
For the filling
Melt the white chocolate in the microwave for 15 second increments, stirring in between until smooth.
Stir the softened cream cheese with the melted white chocolate until it forms a smooth mixture.
Next, fold in the 12 chopped up Oreo’s.
Spread the mixture over the Oreo crust in the pan as evenly as possible. Set Aside.
For the topping
Sprinkle 6 chopped Oreo evenly over the top of the white chocolate mixture. Melt the dark chocolate in the microwave in 15 second increments, stirring in between until smooth. Drizzle over the top and then chill in the fridge for a couple of hours before cutting.

Start by cutting up eight cups of apples into small 1/2 in bits.
Mix the apples with:
12 tablespoons of flour
1 1/2c of sugar
4 heaping teaspoons of cinnamon
1/4-1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg (depending on how much you like nutmeg…you could also leave it out)
You will also need:
4 tablespoons of chilled butter cut into 24 equal portions.
two boxes of pilsbury pie crusts (four chilled NOT frozen crusts)
I found that pinching the edge of the dough around the top edge of the tin and making a hammock of sorts worked really well. You can then gently fill the crusts with your apple mixture and push the crusts down the rest of the way.
1 cup butter
2½ cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon coarse sea salt
1½ cups light brown sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
¾ cup butterscotch chips
¾ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup coarsely chopped pretzels
optional – flaked sea salt
- In a medium saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat, then bring it to a boil. Once the butter starts boiling, swirl the pan constantly until the butter passes the foamy phase and becomes a deep amber color. Remove the pan from the heat and allow the butter to cool for 20 minutes.
- While the butter is cooling, preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
- In a large bowl whisk together the flour, baking soda, and sea salt. Set aside.
- Add the brown sugar, eggs and vanilla into the cooled butter in the saucepan and stir to combine. Pour this mixture into the bowl with the flour mixture. Stir using a a rubber spatula or wooden spoon until the dough comes together.
- Stir in the butterscotch chips, chocolate chips and pretzels.
- Using a medium (2-tablespoon) cookie scoop, drop the dough 2 inches apart on the baking sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the edges are lightly golden.
- Allow the cookies to cool for 2-3 minutes on the baking sheet and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
- If desired sprinkle with a tiny pinch of flaked sea salt on top of the cookies while cooling.
These are simple and delicious meals to wow your new in laws. Now, if your new beau is showing fuck boy tendencies… chile, make this for your family and keep it moving.
