Oreo, a chocolate biscuit snack that lasts for centuries and reminds you of childhood memories. Thanks to Oreo (Nabisco) marketing, I remembered seeing Oreo ads almost everywhere, from newspapers, to posters, and to television advertisements. These advertisements appeal to your emotion and persuade you with reasons to get Oreo. It feels like Oreo’s allow you to be the sociable person in every room, it’s just that popular. It gives you the confidence to talk to people and ask “Hey, have you tried an Oreo? It’s delicious.” It’s interesting to think that the different techniques of eating an Oreo are now traditional in some families or friends.
The traditional, twist the Oreo cookie, lick the frosting then use the chocolate cookie to dunk in a tall glass of milk to finish it off. Yum!
Oreo’s are a very creative snack and it shows in their ads.
Oreo is food with nostalgia, it reminds you of your childhood memories, happy and sad moments. It’s the best snack for those stressful times with schoolwork or academics. This of course isn’t healthy, but it shows how much happiness Oreo can bring to people. Oreo’s are one of the best comfort snacks out there.
I love Oreo’s, but I haven’t eaten it for quite some time. One day, I was thinking of finding a snack to eat, but without finding any I decided why not make my own? Another baking challenge maybe! My first choice had to be Oreo’s! I’ve never tried to make homemade popular snacks so it would be a great challenge.
Since the idea of handmade Oreo’s came to me, I started to brainstorm and went shopping for ingredients. When I was out shopping for ingredients I just kept hoping that my homemade version would pass the taste test.
- 2 Cup Flour
- 1 Cup Cocoa Powder can add a bit more if preferred ( be careful not to add too much, else it might have a bitter taste or can adjust the sugar measurement)
- 1/2 Teaspoon Baking Soda
- 1 Cup Earth Balance Butter Soften
- 1 Cup Sugar
- 2 Teaspoon Salt
- 2 Eggs
Vanilla filling Recipe
- 1/2 cup Butter
- 1/2 Cup Sugar can add more if preferred
- 1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla extract can add more if preferred
Oreo Cookie Dough
- Prepare a large bowl with the following ingredients: add the softened butter, sugar, salt, and mix until puffy.
- Mix the eggs in a separate bowl.
- Sift flour, cocoa powder, and baking soda together. Once that is done add into the large bowl with butter.
- Now combine all ingredients together, and mix well.
- Mix until you get a doughy texture then wrap with plastic wrap and refrigerate for an hour.
- Preheat the oven to 350f.
- Take the dough out from the fridge. Place dough on a flat surface, put parchment paper on top or dust with flour, and roll out the dough. This prevents the dough from sticking to the rolling pin.
- Use a circle cookie cutter to cut out cookie shapes.
- Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes, adjust time depending the oven and thickness of the cookies. Take it out of the oven and prepare the filling.
- Combine all the ingredients in a medium mixing bowl. Mix well and wipe it until fluffy. Feel free to use a mixer.
- Get a piece of cookie, use a spreading knife to spread a layer of filling.
- Top it with another cookie, wipe out the excess off the edges.
After this recipe, I feel so happy knowing how to make Oreo. It tastes just like the real Oreo. I would say I am pretty shocked for how much fat and sugar is needed to make an Oreo. Oreo’s probably might not be a healthy snack, but you can make healthy Oreo with alternatives.
Enjoying an Oreo with a cup of tea, hot chocolate, milk or beverage of your choosing which makes it even better. You can add different flavors to make different fillings as well. Have fun!
