What does a week with vacation days, summer sunshine, and parties need?! No Bake Oreo Bars, obviously!
Happy (almost) 4th of July! How are you celebrating this year? I know it’s kind of weird that it’s a Wednesday, like do you take off the beginning of the week, the end of the week, or just Wednesday? Regardless, it’s gotta include a lot of good food that’s sure to please a crowd.
See: No Bake Oreo Bars.
You guys, I can’t handle it. I’m obsessed. It’s so dangerous because these bars are so incredibly easy to make, I have to physically restrain myself often, otherwise, I’d be eating them 24/7 and I have to find some kind of balance.
When I was little, I couldn’t get enough of those box dessert bars. You know, the ones that come with everything in the box, including a lot of mystery ingredients that you can’t pronounce and aren’t really sure where or what they are. I know there’s a time and place for quick and easy desserts, but why make them out of the box when you can make it at home, minimizing the mystery ingredients? Disclaimer, obviously Oreos are a processed food. It’s about balance!
No Bake Oreo Bars are everything I remember – and want – in an Oreo bar. They’re light, creamy, perfectly sweet, and have a crunchy Oreo crust.
How do you get such a perfect combination? The filling is a mix of both whipped cream and cream cheese, which creates a luscious, light, creamy filling. Naturally, Oreo pieces are pieced throughout (these are Oreo bars after all!). And could you have these without Oreos on top? Definitely not. Requirement. Oreos everywhere.
These need a disclaimer: addictive.
Even more addicting because they are seriously SO EASY. And NO BAKE! Just make the crust, whip the whipped cream, cream the cream cheese, and fold it all together. Done, and done!
What better dessert for summer cookouts/BBQs/pool days – they require such little work, it’s a no-brainer. I highly recommend keeping them stored in the fridge, which means they’re also a cool treat on hot days, too! I’ll stop rambling on about how addicting/luscious/amazing/yummilicious these No Bake Oreo Bars are because if you’re still with me, I’m sure you’re ready to go make ’em!
Have an amazing 4th of July and don’t forget to let me know what’s on your menu!Print
