White Chocolate Lemon Oreo Blondies

I’m obsessed with these blondies, they are lemony delicious!

White Chocolate Lemon Oreo Blondies

1 cup butter
11.5 oz white chocolate (chips or bars)
1½ cups sugar
4 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
2½ cups flour
1 tsp salt
20 Lemon Oreos, coarsely chopped

Preheat oven to 350°. Line a 9″x13″ baking pan with foil, leaving overhang on each end, and spray with nonstick spray. Put butter and white chocolate in large microwave safe bowl. Melt in microwave on about 1/4 power for 4-5 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds. Must be done slowly so white chocolate doesn’t seize. When butter and white chocolate are just melted and creamy, stir in sugar and vanilla. Add flour and salt, and stir until well incorporated. Stir in chopped Lemon Oreos. Spoon into prepared pan, spread evenly. Bake 45-50 minutes (If necessary, tent with foil last minutes of baking to avoid over-browning). Cool completely. Using foil overhang, lift blondies out of baking pan to cutting board. Peel foil away from blondies and cut into squares. Makes 24.

1/2 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup peanut butter, soft
2 cups sugar
3 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
2¼ cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp salt

Mix in eggs one at a time. Add flour, baking powder, and salt; mix thoroughly. Spread half the batter (about 2 cups) in prepared pan. Place Peanut Butter Oreos in one layer over batter. Drop remaining batter by spoonfuls over the top of the layer of Oreos and gently spread to cover all the Oreos (I use my fingers sprayed with non-stick spray). Bake 30 minutes, until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely before frosting.

Fudge Frosting:
6 Tbl butter
6 Tbl milk
1½ cup sugar
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 tsp vanilla

In saucepan over medium heat, combine butter, milk, and sugar. Bring to boil. Boil for 30 seconds and remove from heat. Stir in chocolate chips and vanilla; stir until chocolate chips are melted and frosting is smooth. Spread evenly over blondies, a thick layer. Frosting will set up nicely in a wonderful fudge layer!

Halloween Candied Gorp 2   Halloween Candied Gorp 3

1/2 cup honey roasted peanuts
1/2 cup golden raisins
1/2 cup almonds
1/2 cup broken pretzel (pretzel sticks broken in thirds)
1 cup Reeses Pieces

In a bowl, mix together peanuts, raisins, almonds, pretzel pieces, and Reeses Pieces. Pour out onto silpat or parchment paper lined baking sheet, arrange neatly. Place Oreo pieces evenly in with other ingredients, gently pressing and creating an even, level, organized pile ;o) . Place a quart size ziplock bag in a tall glass, folding over around the edge. Melt CandiQuik as directed on the package until totally liguid. Pour into prepared plastic bag, remove from glass. Hold securely and snip off one corner of bag and drizzle melted vanilla candy evenly over gorp mixture to cover. Using rubber spatula, lifting up and down, gently push the candy coating down into the gorp so when set up it all holds together (don’t stir, it will ruin the nice look of the candy). Let sit to set up. When set, break into pieces.

OREO Sweet Rolls

For Father’s Day at our church each year, the fathers are treated to homemade cinnamon rolls. They are always a big hit. I love making sweet rolls/cinnamon rolls, you don’t have to look very far into my website to see that I love wrapping all kinds of ingredients and flavors up in dough. Here is my latest take on sweet rolls…Oreo Sweet Rolls.

Oreo Sweet Rolls

Sweet Roll Dough:
1 cup milk
1/3 cup butter
1 pkg (2¼ tsp) dry yeast
1/2 cup sugar
4½ – 5 cups flour
1 tsp salt
3 eggs
1½ tsp vanilla

Heat milk and butter in microwave until butter is melted and reaches 110°. In bowl of mixer, sprinkle yeast over milk mixture. When yeast is foamy, add sugar, 3 cups of flour, salt, eggs, and vanilla. Mix until well combined. Add remaining flour, 1/2 cup at a time, stirring well after each addition. When dough has pulled together knead until smooth. Place dough in a sprayed bowl and turn to coat, cover and let rise in warm place until doubled, about 1 hour. Roll out dough on lightly floured surface into a 12″x 18″ rectangle. Mix up filling.

Oreo Filling:
14 Oreos
6 Tbl butter, melted

Process Oreos or crush to fine crumbs. Stir melted butter into oreo crumbs until well combined. Evenly spread over dough. Roll up the dough into a log and seal the seam. Cut into 12 equal pieces, place in a greased 9″x13″ baking pan. Cover and let rise about 1/2 hour. Preheat oven to 375° and bake for 25-30 minutes. Spread with frosting when warm.

Sweet Roll Frosting:
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 cup powdered sugar

Mix butter and powdered sugar. Add enough milk to make frosting consistency. Evenly spread frosting over rolls, sprinkle with Oreo crumbs if desired.

Chocolate Covered Oreo Peanut Butter Cup Sandwiches

My son saw a picture on Imgur that looked something like what we did here.  A Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup sandwiched between Oreos (we used two Oreos, take apart and use the two halves with filling to make filling above and below) then dipped in melted semi-sweet chocolate.  Wow, thanks to whoever came up with this idea, a fun treat!

Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 Tbl shortening

Make 12 Peanut Butter Cup Oreo sandwiches by placing a Reese’s between two halves of Oreo’s with the filling.  Melt chocolate chips and shortening over a double boiler, turn off heat and cool just a bit.  If you dip the sandwiches in the chocolate when it is too hot, it will start to melt the Reese’s.  Cover each sandwich completely with chocolate and set on Silpat lined sheet, parchment, or wax paper.  Refrigerate to set up chocolate.

Ultra Chocolate Chunk Cookies

When I saw this recipe, I had to try it.  It is from and they say, “these ultra chocolate cookies are, hands down, some of the best ever to come through our test kitchen”.  I have made a couple small changes to the recipe and I didn’t want to use their name – Chunky Chocolate Gobs, doesn’t sound very appetizing.  When you look at the ingredients you think…how could you go wrong, Oreos, Mounds, and chocolate chips?  How could these possibly not be good!  They are wonderful!
