oreo dessert

This is a throwback recipe from my Midwestern childhood. Yes, this dessert is make with Oreos but you would never guess (by tasting) that it also contains dates. I would occasionally request this dessert in lieu of birthday cake.

Oreo Dessert

12-15 Oreo cookies, crushed
1 8oz. package of dates
¾ cup water
½ tsp. salt
16 large marshmallows
½ tsp. vanilla
½ cup of crushed nuts
1 tub of Cool Whip

Add dates, water, and salt in a pan and cook for about 10 minutes on medium-high heat. Continue to mash this mixture together as you are heating. Add marshmallows to this mixture until melted. Remove from heat.

Add crushed Oreos to the bottom of a pan. Add date mixture on top of crushed cookies and then add the Cook Whip on top of date mixture. Sprinkle with nuts and crushed cookies.
