Oreo Play Up Dessert!

Oreo Play Up Dessert!

I recently won an Oreo giveaway hosted by Love From The Oven.  Yay!  The prize package consisted of 1 package of Halloween edition Oreo cookies, 1 Crate and Barrel Halloween plate and spider spatula, 1 container of Wilton Halloween sprinkles, 1 package of (50) Wilton Halloween cupcake liners and a fall decorated apron, along with 3 Play Up Dessert! recipe cards.

They asked us to play with the ingredients and share our creations.  After looking through the goodies and recipe cards, I decided to use the same concept as the Oreo Spider Web Cookie Pizza, only modifying it slightly.

Black Cat Cookie Tarts
adapted from Kraft Recipes

24 Halloween OREO Cookies, divided
1/4 c. butter, melted
2 oz. semi-sweet chocolate
1 1/2 c. whipping or heavy cream, divided
1 pkg. (3.4 oz) vanilla flavor instant pudding
1 c. cold milk
8 small round candies
2 Tbsp. Halloween sprinkles

Heat oven to 350 degrees F.

Crush 22 cookies to form fine crumbs; mix with butter.  Divide mixture between 4 mini tart pans, sprayed with cooking spray.  Press onto bottom and sides.  Bake 4 min.; cool.

Meanwhile, microwave semi-sweet chocolate and 1/4 cup cream in a microwaveable bowl on high 1- 1 1/2 minutes, stirring every 30 sec, until the chocolate is completely melted  and mixture is well blended.

Whip remaining cream on high until cream is thick, or soft peaks form.  DO NOT over beat!  Set aside.  In another bowl, beat pudding mix and milk 2 min.  (Pudding will be thick.)  Gently fold the whipped cream into the pudding, until well combined.  Fill tart pans with pudding mixture, spreading with an offset spatula, to within 1/2 inch of edge.

Carefully cut 2 Oreo cookies into quarters.  Use 1 quartered cookie piece for each cat's ear.  Place small round candies onto each cat's face, for the eyes.  If you don't have candies, simply use the chocolate mixture you made earlier.

Spoon chocolate mixture into resealable plastic bag; snip off small piece from one bottom corner of bag.  Use to draw pupils in eyes, whiskers, nose and mouth. Sprinkle Halloween sprinkles onto wet chocolate of the mouth.

Chill for 1 hour before serving.  Or, honestly, you can eat it right away.  Keep refrigerated though, if not serving immediately.  Enjoy!

We had a great time whipping up this fun Halloween treat!  Thank you so much Oreo and Love From the Oven for the giveaway!
