You can tell a lot about a person by how he or she enjoys an Oreo. Whether they tear it apart and eat the cream first, or see-off the cookie in one glorious mouthful, an Oreo brings a lot of joy to us all.
Have you ever wished your favourite cookie would somehow morph with your favorite herb? Neither did I, but hey, that didn’t stop the geniuses at Oreo. The cookie giants have just dropped a mint Oreo in the UK and it immediately got our (culinary) creative juices flowing.
Tasting a bit like that classic 90s biscuit the Viscount, Mint Oreo is perfect on its own, sure, but after days of intensive taste testing in Twisted Kitchen, I can confirm that these Mint Oreo Dirt Desserts are to die for.
The creaminess of avocado, the sweetness of agave, the chocolate-iness of cocoa and the freshness of Oreo Mint combine to create whole new levels of deliciousness.
Mint Oreo Dirt Desserts
Posted by Twisted on Wednesday, 31 August 2016
What You’ll Need:
40g cocoa powder
100ml skimmed milk
1 tsp vanilla essence
Pinch of salt
2 tbsp. Agave Syrup/Honey
1 tsp peppermint extract
50g mint (for decoration)
How You Make It:
Separate your Oreo cookies and scrape away the cream with a knife. Place the two individual biscuits in one bowl and the cream in another. Repeat with all of your Oreo. Set aside.
In the bowl of a food processor place your avocados, milk, cocoa powder, agave syrup, peppermint extract and vanilla essence. Add your reserved Oreo cream. Blend to a smooth mousse. Spoon into 7 small serving glasses. Pop in the fridge for a couple of hours to set.
Meanwhile, bash your biscuits in a bag or whizz in a blender. You want them to be a little bit coarse- like dirt is!
Once ready, bring out your set mousses. Divide the Oreo crumb between the pots. Pop in a sprig of mint and a mint-labelled lollipop stick for that veritable ‘plant-pot’ feel.
