As a cookies and cream enthusiast, one of my biggest frustrations recently was how difficult it was to curb my cravings for this sweet and specific flavor due to most of my favorite dessert shops still being closed. I’ve tried making up for it by binging on packets of Oreo cookies, but sometimes, it doesn’t feel enough. That’s why I’ve started looking for cookies and cream dessert recipes—which you can also try making in your kitchen next after these 10 no-bake dessert recipes for your quarantine sweet cravings.
Pastillas is probably one of the easiest sweet treats to make at home, and if you have children around, you can even let them help out as part of your bonding time together. Get powdered milk (make sure to set aside more for coating), condensed milk, and Oreo cookies from your kitchen and start making this quick dessert.
Cookies and cream fudge
With just white chocolate, sweetened condensed milk and Oreo cookies, you can have a delectable plate of cookies and cream fudge already.
No-bake Oreo cheesecake bars
If you’re longing for something along the lines of Oreo cheesecake but don’t want to or can’t work with the oven, you can whip up this no-bake Oreo cheesecake bar which only needs Oreo cookies, butter, cream cheese, heavy cream, vanilla essence and sugar.
This is probably my favorite from the list thanks to its extra chewy and fudgy texture. The brownie produced by this recipe is also packed and firm—unlike some which feel too light and airy to satisfy you.
Cookies and cream puto
In addition to pastillas, another Filipino delicacy that you can infuse with cookies and cream flavor is puto. This steamed rice cake doesn’t require baking either, and its ingredients can be easily found in your kitchen, too.
