The “Daddy” in our house is American and a big fan of Oreos (I can’t understand why myself) but the kids love ’em too. My daughter found this recipe floating around on Tumblr a while back – No-Bake Oreo Tart – and she thought it would be nice to make for her Dad – this was after I warned the kids they had better make a special effort for Father’s Day since they all forgot his recent Birthday (despite my reminders). We had the tarts for desert tonight as we won’t all be home of Sunday. They were really delicious; and, as I said, I don’t even like Oreos and can take or leave chocolate – they were very rich but very easy to make – A big hit with the big man!
So, this is not my recipe – I just tested it! The original recipe is here. In our tarts, we used butterscotch chips (from the baking section in ASDA) instead of chocolate chips to give it a Scottish touch and as bit of extra colour/crunch. I have translated the quantities into UK /metric measures for non American bakers – the method is the same as the original.
- 2 x 150g packets Oreos
- 120g butter (melted)
- 1 x 300ml tub double cream
- 200g dark chocolate
- 60g butter
- 5 extra Oreos (cut up) or mini Oreos
- A few butterscotch chips (or anything else you like).
