OREO® O’s Sugar Cookies. A perfect back to school snack with the #BestCerealEver. Perfectly dunk-able homemade sugar cookie coated in crushed OREO® O’s cereal!
While on my latest trip to Shop Rite I was SO excited to find this NEW OREO® O’s Cereal from Post! I knew my boys were going to be very excited to see this one in the pantry and I thought I could definitely turn this into a fantastic after school snack for them! Win – Win all around and let me tell you, these cookies are AHHH-MAZING!!!
Its so funny, my boys are only 8 & 6 yet I feel like I live at Shop Rite to keep up with their appetites and thankfully Shop Rite is super close to me and has everything I need at GREAT prices! I feel like getting back into the routine of school is never the easiest transition and I thought to put some extra smiles on the boys faces… bake them fabulous cookies! It works every time!
I used my basic sugar cookie recipe then rolled the dough in crushed OREO® O’s Cereal. They are easy to make and that soft center is so so tasty! I’ll definitely be making another batch later in the week to share with some our friends because they are way too good not to share.
Ok so while my hubby was enjoying a couple of these OREO® O’s Sugar Cookies he was brainstorming for the next batch and heres what we’re thinking… ICE CREAM SANDWICHES! How fantastic would two of these cookies with a center of vanilla ice cream be? Oh and maybe even roll the edges of the ice cream in more of the cereal?!?! OK yes this is a must don’t ya think? I should probably stock up on the cereal next time I head back to Shop Rite!
