Homemade Oreos

 They are finally back!

Monthly Inspiration Challenges are back!
 Melissa of Simply Sweets by Honeybee 
and Stephanie of Ellie's Bites Decorated Cookies, have 
decided to bring them back!

I am so excited!
This month's theme is

They changed it up a little this time, and are
wanting not just decorated cookies, but anything
related to the theme.
The options are endless!
I had a hard time deciding what to do, but I knew I wanted to
step out of my comfort zone, away from decorated cookies.
Long before I started doing decorated cookies, Oreos were what I
would pack in Collin's lunch box everyday.  Three Oreos, not 1, not 2, but 3!
And they HAD to be Oreos, no knock offs for my son, he wanted, no
demanded the real thing.  And regular Oreos, not double stuffed, or seasonal
colors or flavors.
So, after looking around online, I found a
Homemade Oreo recipe that I thought would be close to the
real thing, in looks and taste.
I used a recipe from My Kitchen Addiction, ,
 using Hershey's Special Dark Chocolate Cocoa
 and for the filling, I used Melissa's from
OMG, so yummy Butter Cream Icing.
I did leave out the almond flavoring, and increased
the vanilla to 1 tablespoon.
Not only did they turn out wonderful,
but they are Collin Approved,
he took 3 in his lunch box everyday this week,
and asked me to make more this weekend.
I have a few left over, and even after a week, they are
still crazy yummy!

Make sure you head over to
Melissa's blog Simply Sweets by Honeybee,

  1. They do look yummy! :)

  2. Yum! I love Oreos and the only thing better than an Oreo is a homemade Oreo. If they are Collin approved then I know they are good. I'll have to put these on my ever growing list of things to try. LOL!

  3. Send.Me.Some. They look so yummy! My dad was a FREAK over Oreos. I must have these Kimmie. I'm sending you a message now... :-)

  4. These look delicious! Sharing on my cookie Pinterest board. =)

  5. I'm glad I popped over here from FB to read the rest. I should have known not to stop at the picture! Although, sometimes I see the picture and I'm scared to make them for fear I'll eat them all.

  6. mmmm oreos and milk. I made this exact same recipe for a gender reveal party and loved them!

  7. I had to come back to get the recipe again. Now that Nick is home for the summer, we MUST make these again :-) thanks for sharing sweet Kimmie!
