No-Bake Oreo Dessert

A quick disclaimer on this recipe: this is still a dessert that contains sugar and should be eaten in moderation. Just because I use organic oreos doesn’t mean it is okay to eat this all in one sitting, even though I know some of us could! A sweet treat is still a sweet treat even if healthier ingredients are used.

Anyways, my husband and his entire family are dessert people. Not the type of people that occasionally enjoys a sweet treat after dinner type of dessert people. I mean, the type of dessert people where there are more desserts than regular food at family get together, always a dessert (or 3) on their kitchen counters and yes, we will see the dessert menu type of people. I’m not saying this is bad. I’m just not a dessert person. Besides ice cream, sweets don’t do much for me. Before meeting my husband, I didn’t know these type of people existed…

Back in the day, my husband would buy those boxed desserts where you add one or two ingredients and viola you have a cake or brownies. The only one he would ever make was the Jello No-Bake Oreo Dessert and I swear he would make it on a weekly basis. The older we got, the more aware of nutrition and how bad processed foods are for you he slowly cut back on his famous No-Bake Oreo dessert. To this day, he will still mention how much he loved that dessert. Well, it’s his birthday this week so I surprised him with his most favorite dessert! I have a feeling I will making this dessert a lot more often than just his birthday because he loved it. He even said it tasted like the real deal! So, if you have a special occasion coming up and need to make a dessert, whip this up!
