Oreos really are perfection, but this cookie might even be an improvement on them. Meg Matenaer shares a modern favorite sure to up your Christmas cookie game.

I still remember the first time that I had one of these. My niece who was twelve at the time had come over to my parents’ house with a tray of them. I bit into the crunchy, chocolate shell which gave way to a luscious Oreo cream cheese center. It was an experience. Oreos are perfection, but this little cookie might even be an improvement on them. One cookie turned into two and then four and I sat wondering how I many I could get away with eating before somebody noticed!

A word of warning from your sister in Christ: their compact size really lends to their eatability, so beware if you find yourself alone in a room with these!

Recipe from Kraftrecipes.com:


-8 oz. cream cheese, softened

-40 Oreos, finely crushed, divided

-4 pkg (4 oz. each), semi-sweet baking chocolate, broken into pieces, melted
