19 Oreo Recipes That Prove Once And For All This Is The Best Cookie On Earth, Period

If there's one thing this crazy world can agree on, it's that Oreo cookies are the best cookies on the planet. And while eating them plain will never do you wrong, these freaking amazing Oreo recipes will have you eyeing that delicious sleeve full of sandwich cookies in a totally different light. The possibilities for this classic treat are seriously endless — and our friends at Spoon University are showing us how to help our favorite cookie live up to its fullest potential. Pair it with peanut butter, and whip it up into a creamy pie. Crumble it into brownies, blondies, and cheesecakes. Work it into hot chocolate, and tuck it into a s'more. Serve with a sweet scoop of ice cream, or dipped in decadent chocolate. Just know that Oreos are here to make your life better, no matter how you choose to eat them. And doesn't that just sound oh so sweet?

We agree there's no better cookie than an Oreo. Period, end of sentence, full stop. However, when you turn an Oreo into a Nutella s'more, then you just created a whole new being.

So, for your Oreo-loving pleasure, we've compiled 19 recipes that take this wondrous cookie and transform it into something else completely that's even more delicious (somehow).
