With the constant onslaught of less than happy news, it is nice to find stories that are more celebratory.
Nabisco was proud to announce the 100th birthday of Oreo cookies earlier this week. I have to be honest, I’m not a regular consumer. Yes, I’ll admit that dunked in milk they are quite tasty, but I tend to prefer cookies of the homemade variety.
There is, however, one thing they do exceptionally well…chocolate crusts! I recently discovered an even better way to make their famous crust. I now use coconut oil to create the perfect texture and even better flavor (plus coconut oil is an excellent anti-aging beauty secret — now that they’re 100 years old, I’m sure the Oreos really appreciate that!)
The recipe below is ridiculously easy, incredibly delicious, and great to make in advance…then store it in your freezer until ready to serve.
I hope you enjoy this excuse to celebrate.
