Oreo Cookie Filling Dip


This is basically a Oreo Filling Recipe… BUT I’m using it as a dip for all sorts of fun things!

While some recipes are completely unnecessary for your health, they are completely necessary for your life.

This is totally that.


With Oreos being made bigger and better all the time.. I mean, hello Mega Stuf…my husband and I are wondering when they were just gonna do away with the cookie altogether?


I mean, it’s all about the filling.  Does anyone even BUY regular Oreos anymore?  The motto in our house has always been if it isn’t a Double Stuf, then it’s a Diet Oreo.

And now with the Mega rocking our world…


I left my husband and my  7 year old home with a pack of Oreos in the cabinet and this is what they do…


So we are clearly a filling household.

Until the folks over at Nabisco get their act together and sell the filling alone, I decided to take matters into my own hands.


With Oreo Cookie Filling Dip.

I think I have come remarkably close to the filling, except I made it a slightly smoother consistency, so it’s a little easier to spread…dip…spoon…inhale…

ORRRR you can fill your own cookies…

It really couldn’t be easier to make..and yes, I know that vegetable shortening isn’t health food.

But this is OREO FILLING DIP.  If you’re looking for healthy today, you’ve come to the wrong spot.

Just mix together some shortening, powdered sugar, water and vanilla…


And that’s it. Dump it all in your bowl and mix it up!

“my husband and I are wondering when they were just gonna do away with the cookie altogether?” Haha…..SO true! Maybe they’ll make a giant tub of filling with one wafer in the middle.

Genius! My husband and kids will love this! Great for our next party…I usually put out a chocolate fountain, but next time it’s oreo filling dip, for sure. Yuuuuummmmmm.

I am going to forget that I ever saw this post because if I continue to think about it, I will make some of this dip and then proceed to eat the whole thing.

March 5, 2013 8:55 am

The only thing that I would buy regular Oreos for is to make Oreo crust for pie or cheesecake. Or Oreo truffles. I swear that Nabisco briefly sold tubs of just Oreo filling over a decade ago, but that could completely be a dream that I had that I got confused with reality. Now I can make this, and my son and daughter will be over the moon. (Literally, from the sugar rush.)

I once saw just the Oreo Cookie in a large tub at Ocean State Job Lot. I wondered why anyone would just buy the chocolate cookie!

I’m a filling girl, hands down! I could seriously take a spoon to this dip. No need for dippers or cookies.

Love this idea!

March 5, 2013 11:08 am

I must be the only person who buys the regular ones…and wishes they sold a reduced filling version. By way of explanation: I’m a dunker, and that filling feels weird after the cookie’s all soggy. But YOUR filling…I might have to make some cookies to go with it 🙂

March 5, 2013 11:27 am

I am all for more filling 🙂 Do the mega Oreos have 3x the filling or something like that?? I haven’t ever seen them in the store, but I will be looking for them now. 🙂 Great recipe, pinning it.

March 5, 2013 2:07 pm

I THINK the mega oreos are like like a double stuff and a regular oreo put together. At least, in the one package that i have eaten, that’s the way the cream looks to me.

March 5, 2013 11:41 am

Your son knows how to make a good cookie!!! That is exactly what an Oreo should look like.

March 5, 2013 11:54 am

oh my for the oreo lovers out there… be ware! this look addicting. I think I definitely need to share this on my FB page later today!

Oh you crack me up. Someone out there still buys the regular OREOS …. me! In fact, I scrape about half the filling out of the regular OREO before dunking it.

Awww, yeah! Yum!

Summer @ Mallow and Co
March 5, 2013 1:18 pm

Yes. I have been waiting my whole life for this. I will never again have to buy oreos now!!!

March 5, 2013 1:50 pm

Yes! I have been wondering why they even make the regular Oreo’s anymore. I thought the Mega Stuff was just too much though. I do love your idea for making your own filling for dipping things into.

March 5, 2013 2:18 pm

Oh my totally want this now!!

Oh my word! This looks like the best dip in the whole wide world!!!

March 5, 2013 3:42 pm

I, on occasion, have been known to just peel the filling out of the cookies and eat that while just tossing the cookies. not proud of it, but it happens. this dip.is.my.kryptonite. I just know it.

March 5, 2013 5:34 pm

Wow I think I’d just eat the filling straight up! I have cookies in the freezer so I might just add this filling! Thanks for this!

March 5, 2013 5:50 pm

Um, you’re kind of a genius. I love this recipe!

March 5, 2013 6:12 pm

I hate you. No, I love you. No, hate.

Whatever. I’ll take a bowl of this now, please.

Brilliant! Love the idea of this dip — the best part of Oreo’s is that creamy filling, for sure! 🙂

Oh my hell. That’s what I’m talking about!!! AMAZING!!! When we saw the Mega Oreos my kids about freaked. They said I was never to buy the other ones again. They are going to love this!!!

March 5, 2013 8:25 pm

I made this last night because I have no self control or restraint and figured that a cold Tuesday night was enough of an occasion for such a treat. Umm, YOU’RE MY HERO. My family was A-Mazed by this. And I’m ashamed to admit I didn’t really think to buy anything to dunk it in so sure enough we ate it…with a spoon. Not my finest moment. So good and simple and had everything on hand, well, except for dipping vessels but those are overrated anyway.

March 6, 2013 9:56 am

Brilliant and very clever.
What a great and different filling for my woopie pies :}
thank you

Although I tend to lean towards the normal sized filling Oreos, I can just imagine all delicious things to dip into this!
