How many of you have been apart of the age long Oreo debate, what's the best way to enjoy an Oreo? I know I have debated this many times, I think the best way is to drop them into milk and let them soak in there for a while. My husband likes to call Oreos, "cereal", because he pours a bunch in a bowl with milk and eats it like cereal.
In the past 108 years since the Oreo was created by the National Biscuit Company, better known as Nabisco, Oreo's have become a national sensation. I mean everyone knows what Oreos are and have most likely tried them. What's not to love? It's a chocolate sandwich cookie held together by a sweet cream filling.
Nabisco created the Oreo in 1912, just a few years after the Sunshine Biscuits company created a very similar cookie. In response, Nabisco came out with a cookie that they deemed to be "different and something new." Shortly after its release, Nabisco trademarked the cookie, permanently securing rights to the sandwich cookie.
While the history of the cookie itself is quite clear the origin of its name is not. People, even employees of Nabisco, don't know where the name came from. I guess it will just remain a cookie mystery.
If you're not a huge milk fan or cant have it ( I can't have milk anymore, I'm allergic) you can use Oreos in other ways. One way to eat these delectable cookies is to use them to make something else. They work perfectly as a crust for cheesecakes and also in any kind of pudding, which is what I did here.
This beautiful layered pudding took me an hour total to make and that's mostly because they pudding needs to set. The best part of the pudding is it has an added layer of flavor with the Bailey's Irish cream added into the pudding.
If you like what you saw here or have any comments or questions, don't be afraid to comment below! Also tell me, how should the Oreo be eaten?
Bailey's Oreo Chocolate Pudding
- 1 box of instant chocolate or vanilla pudding
- 1/3 cup of Bailey's Irish Cream
- 1 cup heavy whipping cream
- 1 package of Oreos
- 2 2/3 cups of cold milk
- 1 tsp. dried oregano
- Follow the directions on the box of pudding to make the pudding. Instead of putting in 3 cups of milk, put in 2 2/3 cups. Replace the 1/3 cup of milk you omitted and add in 1/3 cup of Bailey's. Finish follow directions. Place bowl of pudding in fridge for 45 mins until thickened.
- In a stand mixer, pour 1 cup of heavy chipping cream and mix until it turns into whipped cream, about 4-5 mins. DO not over mix.
- Crush up oreos, it is easier if you scrape the cream out of the middle.
- Assemble your layered pudding. Put pudding in then top with oreos, then whipped cream and alternate until you get to the top of the container you picked. Tasty!
