So I’m mildly embarrassed that the first post with my new Vitamix blender is not a superfood smoothie or silky creamless soup, two ideas I used to justify the purchase of this long-wished-for appliance. Instead, it’s Oreo Butter. And I didn’t even try to put chia or flax seeds in.
Oreo…what, you say? Oreo butter. Before I get accused of food slumming, I tasted it first at Williams-Sonoma, where I was scoping out yet another kitchen purchase. I know, I have issues. They called it Cookies & Cream Butter, “Sweet Nostalgia in a Spread“.
I’m a sucker for that sort of thing, even if the phrase “Sweet Nostalgia in a Spread” doesn’t even make sense. What does make sense is “Kid Crack in a Crock” and that’s what this is. If you’re wondering how you’d use such a silly thing as Oreo Butter, just ask a kid.
They’ll have no trouble finding ways to use this up: strawberries, spread on crackers, bananas, pretzels. I’ve heard it’s good on salt and vinegar potato chips.
Not that I tried that.
Nope, not me.Print

Oreo butter is the most ridiculous and wonderful thing ever. Dumping a whole box into the blender is just fun.
- 1 14.3 oz. box Oreo cookies
- 2 T. coconut oil
- 2 T. palm oil shortening (Spectrum Palm Oil shortening is what I use)
- Blend in a food processor or Vitamix until smooth. It takes a while, keep scraping the sides down. It will eventually happen. I promise.
- It will be warm and soupy after blending, & will firm up when it comes back to room temperature.
You don’t need a Vitamix, but feel free to use this recipe to justify a purchase. Blame me. I’m tough. You’ll never, ever regret the purchase. Use whatever mix of oil you want. All coconut oil was too overpowering, but the melt-in-your-mouth texture of coconut oil is awesome in this…so I went half coconut and half palm.

Yes, on chips.
This is awesome. My kids love the DF cookie spreads we’ve been able to find (Biscoff, TJ’s, etc.), but most of the homemade versions I’ve seen are too involved/expensive for my taste. My daughter will love making this. Kid Crack in a Crock, here we come!

Wow, looks amazing. No one will accuse you of “food slumming”. Ha! Of course it’s not the healthiest food, but neither are the desserts at restaurants and parties that our kids never get to eat. This is a great idea for a special treat for sure!
“Kid Crack in a Crock”- definitely deserves an LOL. Biscoff Spread with an Oreo twist. Yum! Thanks for sharing. 🙂
surprised you’re featuring Oreos on a site about healthy food. I really like your site, but Oreo’s are so bad for us. They are packed with bad oils, bad sugars, and if that doesn’t persuade you then check out this article at Forbes: http://www.forbes.com/sites/alicegwalton/2013/10/16/why-your-brain-treats-oreos-like-a-drug/
That’s a fantastic article! I’ll have to update the post to include the science behind why I called this “Kid Crack in a Crock”. Thanks for posting. It should be obvious, but this is not a site about “healthy food”. This is a site about safe & fun foods for children with life threatening allergy to dairy, egg, peanut and tree nut.
This is awesome! I’m going to use this as a safe alternative to Nutella (something the non-allergic sibling loves). Thanks for sharing. Our boy will be so happy!
I agree a great replacement do Nutella! I seriously love your recipies!!
