Cookies and Cream Peanut Butter…Midnight Snack

Need a midnight snack? Or anytime snack for that matter, my cookies and cream peanut butter might just knock your socks off πŸ™‚

I was so lucky to have my sister and her family visit earlier this week and I got to have some kitchen time with her beautiful girls. They are just the sweetest things ever.

Hope you’ll enjoy this naughty snack that’s good enough to eat by the spoonful!

Here’s your 3 ingredient line up.

Break out the Oreos.

My sweet little helper, I miss her already!

Here’s the second stinker that kept passing through the kitchen. Can you even stand how cute she is?!

Pour those Oreos in a large bowl.

…as well as peanut butter

Time to melt the chocolate chips πŸ™‚

Use either a double boiler or melt in the microwave.

Add 2 tablespoons of peanut butter to the double boiler, helps melt the chocolate nicely.

Add the chocolate to the bowl!

Mmmm πŸ™‚

Give a gentle stir and place into a mason jar.

Yes please.

Double yes please.


Cookies and Cream Peanut Butter

10 whole Oreo Cookies

2 Cups creamy peanut butter

1 cup white chocolate chips

2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter

1. Crush Oreos into small pieces and place into a large bowl. Add 2 cups peanut butter.

2. Place white chips and 2 tablespoons peanut butter into a double boiler and stir until melted. Add to bowl of Oreos and peanut butter. Stir just a little so you have a bit of swirls of chocolate throughout. Place peanut butter into a jar or eat from the bowl πŸ™‚

Yield:Β  Debatable


Have a great rest of your week! Come back soon!

    Oh man Jenny…. you just took my peanut butter obsession to a whole new level. I have made white chocolate peanut butter before because I’m obsessed with White Chocolate Wonderful, but never added cookies!!

  5. 5

    Oh this looks amazing! I used to dip oreos in peanut butter but this is even better.

  6. 6

    Your nieces are so adorable! This is brilliant! Now I’ve added chocolate chips to a spoonful of pb before indulging, but never thought to make a mix such as this. Thank you for taking pb to a whole new, delicious level!!!

    White chocolate, and peanut butter, and Oreos. Ohhhh myyyy!

    Jenny, I heart you πŸ™‚

    And your helpers…are tooooo adorable for words! I cannot believe you stopped the cooking to get your camera out to take pics of them helping you. In that time flat, my helper would have helped herself to a sizable portion of the goods πŸ™‚

      Hi Mishi,
      I’ve kept mine out on the counter for 3 days now and it’s still great. I would think you could refrigerate it as well πŸ™‚

    So sweet.

    This is a great idea and I am drooling, which means that I have no choice but to make this TODAY.

    Thanks for the lovely post and recipe!

  37. 37
    Heather says:

    Jenny! Wow! This looks absolutely amazing and so sinful! I would have to keep this very far from my husband. It combines all of his favorites and he would probably eat the whole jar. πŸ™‚

  38. 38
    Rachel says:

    I imagine I’d eat this straight out of the bowl, but in the event that I could control myself long enough to spread this on something, what would you recommend? I’m thinking maybe with pretzels or graham crackers?

  39. 39

    I’m a peanut butter addict! I love it and eat a PB&J sandwich every day. This combo could be disasterous, but I have to try it. I hope I don’t get too addicted.

      Hi Sarah,
      I’ve had it on the counter for 3 days now and it’s still great. It’s just peanut butter, white chocolate and Oreos so I think it will keep for a few weeks no problem πŸ™‚

    This is gonna happen in my kitchen ASAP. Pretty sure my heart skipped a beat. But I was wondering, I saw that you used the Natural PB instead of regular. Is this a personal preference? I’ve actually never strayed away from the regular kind of PB so I am a little scared haha.
