On Pins and…Oreos
Ever since discovering Pinterest, I’ve wasted more hours than I’d care to count, but at least I’ve wasted that time doing very productive things. You know, like decorating my multimillion dollar dream house, planning my future wedding, and giggling over witty Harry Potter posters.
But undoubtedly the best thing that’s come from my Pinterest obsession has been the unlimited access to a huge amount of food porn and recipe inspirations at my fingertips. I have an entire board dedicated to recipes I want to make, and this week I checked two of them off of my list. Happily, both of them included one of my favorite baking ingredients:
First up was Read It and Eat It’s Oreo Cream Cheese Brownies
There are no words to describe how perfectly these turned out. I’m talking so fudgy that one bite nearly seals your mouth shut perfect. And there is nothing more delicious than a cream cheese frosting swirl. Except giant chunks of Oreos thrown in to the fudgy brownie and cream cheese frosting swirl. Oh, heavens. Just make them, ok?
Next up were the No Bake Cookies and Cream bars from Sweet Pea’s Kitchen:
I know these don’t look pretty, but I promise they tasted a thousand times better than they appear. They’re basically Rice Krispies treats minus the Rice Krispies and plus Oreos. Think about it: where could you possibly go wrong with that combination?
If this doesn’t sufficiently justify my Pinterest addiction, I’m not sure what will.
Any other Pinterest junkies out there?
My addiction is getting out of control (as is the list of foods I need to make in the very near future).
