If you watched The Parent Trap as a little kid and have loved Oreos dipped in peanut butter ever since…. this one is for you. Ever since watching that movie when I was younger, I’ve been obsessed with Oreos and peanut butter. Maybe it’s the simplicity of chocolate and peanut butter together, but maybe it’s something more. The nostalgic and unique flavor of Oreos dipped in creamy peanut butter is just other-worldly. And in the best most incredible way possible.

After all, Oreos never go out of style…
I hope you enjoy these bars as much as we do! Please take a moment to read the tips below so that you get the best results possible. 🙂
Can I use sandwich cookies other than Oreos?
Sure! Use whatever chocolate sandwich cookies you like! I love Oreos, but I also love this brand as well. 🙂
Do I need to remove the creme filling?
YES. YES YES YES. This is a crucial step and using the filling will not give you the right texture on the crust!
What if I don’t own a food processor?
That’s ok! I highly recommend one for this recipe but if you don’t have one, I have a solution for you. 🙂 Simply put the Oreo cookies in a ziplock (or similar) bag, remove the air, and with a rolling pin or similar vessel, crush the cookies to a very fine consistency.
How long do I leave the Oreo crust layer in the fridge?
Before putting the fudge layer over top, you’ll need to refrigerate the crust. This helps it solidify, but also helps when spreading the fudge over top! AT LEAST an hour in the fridge for the Oreo crust layer, but the longer the better. 🙂
