For our fellow Oreo addicts out there, you may have noticed that you have a lot of new Oreo products to get busy taste-testing. The new Oreo cookie flavors we've seen in the snack aisle had us very excited...until we spotted the Oreo Churros in our Safeway frozen food aisle. The idea of having Oreo Churros at our fingertips was VERY exciting. When we were offered the chance to try them, of course we jumped on it!
What We Like about Oreo Churros:
The prep work and cook time for this snack is minimal, which is always a plus for a busy household. We also like the bite-size pieces versus the traditional long churros found at amusement parks. The serving size is generous, making it a great snack to share. For those of you that like the cream filling the best, you'll love the filling in these churros, too! Without a doubt though, the BEST part of this snack is the sugar and cookie crumb coating mixture. Oreo needs to consider selling this as a topping!
Bake or Fry?
We aren't much into frying in our family, so we went with the baking option. Now, I'll warn you, baking seems to produce a thick, chewier version of the churro and they most definitely taste best while they're still warm. We haven't tried frying, but I can imagine that this would produce a more realistic churro quality.
While we think you may enjoy these churros prepared as intended in the instructions, we've gotta share our own way of eating these that took our dessert up a notch...ice cream topping! The ice cream soaks into the Oreo Churros, creating an absolutely delicious bite.
Here's what we did...
- Bake as directed on the box.
- Allow to cool enough to handle. Slice Oreo Churros into 1/4 inch pieces.
- Scoop your favorite ice cream into a bowl.
- Add Oreo Churro slices as a topping, Sprinkle any left over sugar/cookie crumb mixture on top.
