You know, I’m not a big drinker. I talk a big talk, but when it comes right down to it, I’m a sipper. And a grinner. But that’s another story. Anyway, I still like to “let my hair down” and have a drink every now and then, and what’s better than combining a little alcohol with one of my favorite treats? That’s the inspiration behind these Boozy Berry Oreos. Ahh, amore!
Love is in the air, people! It’s like a gas that’s leaking out and everyone is breathing in its fumes.
Hmm. Wait. Maybe I should think of a better analogy.
But then again, it can be kind of relevant. Love can make you do weird things. I mean think about that whole Billy Bob Thornton and Angelina Jolie thing. Sharon Stone and Dwight Yoakum. See? Love can be really, really weird sometimes.
It might even cause you to put booze in Oreos. But that’s not weird.
What I Love About Boozy Berry Oreos
Oh, you know, the holidays can be so much fun. But Valentine’s Day? Well, it’s the best. It combines some of my very favorite things, like chocolate and flowers. And now I can add some drunken Oreos to the mix! I love that these are so simple to make and so satisfyingly delicious! They tickle your sweet tooth with creamy, flavorful bites and just a hint of the boozy part.
Simple. Delicious. Pretty in Pink.
Boozy Berry Oreos
- 1 package berry flavored Oreos
- 3 tablespoons corn starch
- 1½ cups plant-based milk soy, almond, etc
- ½ cup sugar
- ¼ – ½ cup vodka
- Twist the Oreos to separate the cookies. Use a butter knife to remove the creamy centers of each of the cookies and place in a small ball.
- In another small bowl combine ½ cup plant-based milk with the 3 tablespoons or corn starch. Stir to combine. Set aside.
- In a microwave-safe bowl combine the remaining plant-based milk (1 cup) and the sugar. Stir to combine. Microwave for one minute, and stir to help the sugar dissolve. Pour the cornstarch mixture into the the warm milk. Stir to combine. Return to the microwave and heat in 1-minute increments, stirring between, until the mixture is thickened (about 3 minutes total).
- Add the pink berry Oreo centers (and any crumbs of the cookies that might have broken in the separation process) and the vodka. Stir to combine. Refrigerate until cool, about 15 minutes.
- Place a dollop of the pudding mixture on one of the Oreo cookies, about a half a tablespoon. Top with a second cookie and just tap or twist with very minimal pressure to secure it. Repeat with the rest of the cookies. You will probably have some of the pudding mixture leftover. Feel free to serve it in a pretty dish with extra Boozy Berry Oreos. Store these cookies in the fridge. I also froze about half of them and they were great both ways.
If you end up with some extra berry pudding, it makes a nice little dessert of its own.
