Meet Oreo Stuff. Yep, that’s the name it was given many years ago when my college roommate, rodeo partner and long time friend, Jeanne Anderson, made it for me. I was trying to think of something kind of unique but easy for a work dinner party tonight, and thought of Oreo Stuff. Of course, I didn’t have the oreos, so a trip to the local grocery store ensued. I even took it up a notch by making individual dessert cups instead of using the normal 9 x 13 or 8 x 8 pan. I laugh when I remember making it for my mother-in-law who has never met a sweet or dessert that she didn’t love. Long story short – I gave her the remainder to take home. Not sure if Mike’s dad got any….you gotta be quick when it comes to sweets. I always make sure i have some sweet concoction when she comes to visit (hmmmm…..maybe that’s why she recently gave me her KitchenAid???) I love that thing, and I love her, so I’m not asking…I’ll just keep cooking!!!
So I assembled the ingredients:
Oreos, hot fudge sauce, peanuts, vanilla ice cream, whipped cream, and chocolate shot. And what in the world is chocolate shot you might ask?? Chocolate shot, aka chocolate sprinkles are something I grew up eating on the chocolate cream pie that my dad served in his restaurant. YUMMO. That’s actually my favorite topping on sugar cookies. They are the pile set aside that nobody had better touch!!
Break up your oreos in the bottom of your pan or individual dishes, and lightly drizzle with melted butter. Layer with vanilla ice cream, hot fudge sauce (melt just a little and stir – makes it easier to spread), sprinkle with peanuts and cover with whipped cream. I like to decorate it a little with some crumbled oreos on top, and if you have it, chocolate shot. Pop it in the freezer, and voila!
So from where did this delicious creation evolve? Meet my friend Jeanne:
I’m sharing these two pics of Jeanne, cuz i promised her that nothing from college or anything that occurred in our trailer house would appear here 🙂 There are a few other specialties from those days that could wind up on this site as well, but I had some good memories when whipping this up last night I hope you and yours enjoy as much as we do.
Happy St. Patty’s Day! ~Connie Kaye
