My DB is a HUGE fan of Reddit. I mean, he’s on that site day and night. He’ll share the links with everyone he knows according to their likes. For example, he’ll send his friend political links, another friend gets nothing but memes, and I get puppies (mostly German Shepherds).
Are there any Redditors on here? I swear I would have never even known what that site was if it wasn’t for my DB. I do have one confession, though. Whatever I do, I just can’t get into that site. It doesn’t entertain me nearly as much as it does others. My DB will constantly show me things that he finds funny on that website and I’ll just look at him like, “Seriously? How do you think this is funny at all?” I guess to each their own.
One day, my DB shouts at his computer while browsing Reddit, “OH MY GOSH!” and then turns around to ask me if I’ve seen this. Candy Corn Oreos. He claims that he’s on one of the few people in the world that likes candy corn.
The next day while I was at Target, guess what I see while walking through the cookie aisle? You guessed it, candy corn oreos. I can always count on Target for the latest version of Oreos. Intrigued more than anything, I bought a bag to see how they taste.
Not bad, but they weren’t for me. I’m a sucker for the original Oreo. My DB, on the other hand, loved them. Determined to not let him eat the entire bag, I baked them into some cookies since he has a bit more self control with my cookies than he does with cookies that come straight out of a bag.
I decided to use a regular pudding based cookie and toss in crushed up candy corn oreos rather than regular chips. The result? An extremely soft, moist, and holiday appropriate cookie.
These would be perfect for a Halloween party. Although the cookies don’t really taste like candy corn, they have the festive colors for the holidays. Plus, they’re so good that no one will notice what they’re supposed to taste like.
By the way, I had to go through this post multiple times because apparently I cannot type “candy corn oreos” for the life of me. Every time I typed it, I wrote “candy cane oreos.” Hmmmmm… new idea for you, Nabisco! Is it Christmas yet?
