Frozen White Mint Oreo Cookie Dough Bites

Frozen White Mint Oreo Cookie Dough Bites

Think it sounds too good to be true? I would too, had I not just invented them. I was trying to think of something to bake, and wanted to make something cold since it's been so hot outside. I figured this would be the perfect opportunity to make something with cookie dough, since we don't have any cookie dough recipes on here yet. And as you all know, cookie dough is amazing, so making something with cookie dough ups the ante. You have to pair it with really awesome things to make something even more awesome than the cookie dough would have been on its own. So, I determined it was time for a pantry/fridge raid. And what did I end up with? A York Peppermint, a bag of Mini Oreos, and White Chocolate Pudding Mix. This was one of those wonderful moments when I knew whatever I ended up with, using all of these ingredients with cookie dough, was going to be good. Really good. My only regret is that Lauren isn't eating sweets right now, so I've probably had a few (or eight) too many on my own...oops.  

(Yield: 12 mini muffin-sized bites, if you need to feed a lot of people, double/triple/quadruple the recipe)

Oreo Crust:
1 3 oz Bag Mini Oreos (or the equivalent in regular oreos, makes no difference) 
1.5 tbsp butter or margarine
York Mint Layer:
1 1.4 oz York Peppermint
2 tsp milk
Cookie Dough:
2 tbsp butter or margarine, softened
1 cup flour
a pinch of salt
2 tbsp granulated sugar
2 tbsp packed brown sugar
1/4 tsp vanilla
1 tsp milk
2 tbsp chocolate chips
White Chocolate Topping:
2 tbsp butter or margarine, softened
2 tbsp milk
2 tbsp powdered sugar
1/4 cup white chocolate pudding mix


1. Begin by greasing a mini muffin pan
2. Put the Oreos in a Ziploc bag and crush them with a rolling pin, or something else if you so choose

3. Mix them in a bowl or mug with the butter and microwave this mixture for 30 seconds on low. 

4. Divide this mixture and put some in each muffin tin, pressing it firmly against the bottom

5. Melt the York Peppermint with 2 tsp of milk by microwaving it on low for 30 seconds 
6. Divide it between the muffin tins (start by putting slightly less than a teaspoon of the mixture in each tin, and if you have any leftover, add it on where you see fit)

7. Mix the cookie dough ingredients 

8. Add 1 teaspoon of the cookie dough in each muffin tin on top of the York Peppermint layer, pressing the dough down after adding it in

9. Mix the white chocolate topping ingredients 

10. Spread the topping on top of the cookie dough, using a knife. 

11. Freeze for a few hours, or as long as you can wait. They will be delicious at any point, just more solid after some time in the freezer :-) 

Enjoy your heavenly frozen treat, and when in doubt, bake!
