The catch? At the moment, Cadbury Coated Oreos are only available in Australia, according to PopSugar. If you live in the States, you’ll have to live vicariously through those Down Under with photos of the double-chocolate dessert. It’s cruel and unjust, but luckily there are ways to satisfy your craving for extra-indulgent chocolate sandwich cookies.
You could make your own Cadbury Coated Oreo dupes, so long as you melt your own Cadbury milk chocolate bars and dip Oreos, fondue-style, into the silky liquid. Even better, you can add custom designs with melted white chocolate or colorful icing. Here’s how to achieve perfect chocolate-dipped Oreos at home.
Thankfully, you are also free to order other ultra-chocolaty Oreo goods online, as this isn’t the first time Oreos and chocolate brands have created beautiful things together.
There’s the Milka Oreo Big Crunch Chocolate Candy Bar, available here. Crunchy Oreos are enrobed in luscious vanilla cream, then encased in a layer of milk chocolate.
Then there are Oreo Cadbury Creme Eggs, which are, you guessed it, familiar milk-chocolate eggs containing a true treasure: velvety cookies and cream filling. Snag a mini version here.
There is also the truly insane Cadbury Dairy Milk Egg ‘n’ Spoon with Oreo. The sugary contents are intended to be devoured with an included spoon until the consumer is left with a sweet egg to be eaten then or later. Order them immediately here.
More of a baker than a buyer? You’ve got plenty of homemade, Oreo-rich dessert options, like our frozen Oreo peanut butter pie, featuring an Oreo crust with a peanut butter cream cheese filling that is sinfully bursting with peanut butter cups and chocolate chips. It’s chilled until set and finished with as much peanut butter as you dare to drizzle.
You can also get a head start on warming up for winter with our gooey Oreo lava cake. It’s made extra mouthwatering with Oreo pudding and an entire cup of chocolate chips.Australia, cadbury, candy, chocolate oreos, cookies, oreo, snacks
Man Eats 203 Chips Ahoy Cookies, Lives To Tell The Tale (Video)
By Cooking Panda
“Eat 203 Chips Ahoy cookies!” someone demands of you.
“Ha, yeah right!” you’d say jokingly, though you really could go for a few cookies.
“No, actually, eat 203 cookies in less than half an hour,” the person demands, completely seriously.
Professional eater Matt Stonie, however, would take on the task eagerly — and he did, in 27 minutes and 33 seconds.
Armed with six packs of Chips Ahoy cookies — some chocolate chip and some, his personal favorite, with M&M’s — and two half-gallons of milk, he embarked upon his gluttonous journey and filmed it for the world to see (video below).
“One gallon of milk, 203 cookies. Let’s do it,” he begins.
He makes it look so easy, popping entire cookies into his mouth and devouring them in pleasant-sounding crunches, alternating bites with gulps of milk.
It isn’t until he’s 30 cookies in, at around 2 minutes and 50 seconds, when his expression begins to sour.
“Oh, man, my mouth is slowly starting to dry out,” he complained at the 54-cookie mark. “I’m definitely gonna need all of this milk.”
It’s a good thing he bought two half-gallons, then, as he was about a fourth of the way finished with the cookies and had gulped down a fourth of the milk.
He lets out a belch that “felt good” before bravely moving on.
Stonie continues with little nonsense, stopping only at important moments. He pauses to point out the beauty of the 103rd cookie, a specimen with particularly even chocolate-chip distribution.
“That’s a good looking cookie,” he observes before crushing it between his powerful jaws.
Cookie 119 is a toughie, as he stops to soothe his sore jaw. “The crunchy cookie is starting to wear down at my gums right now,” he says. He adds that his dog headbutted him earlier, whacking him square in the jaw.
Dozens of cookies later, he’s down to the final five. With a deep breath, he plows through.
After the final cookie, a victorious Stonie chugs his remaining quarter gallon of milk, swallowing the last drop at 27 minutes and 33 seconds.
“Oh, that’s a lot of milk,” he observes.
Yes. Yes, it was.
As frighteningly impressive as his feat was, it was normal for Scottie, who has devoured five Chipotle burritos in four minutes and 25 double-fudge brownies in one minute. His outrageous exploits can be found here.

13 Desserts You’ll Go Coconuts Over (Recipes)
By Cooking Panda
Coconuts — the origin of creamy coconut milk and chewy coconut flakes — make excellent desserts. Perfect in treats hot and cold, baked and no-baked, the fruit is a versatile beacon of deliciousness. Here are 13 clever ways to go coconuts for dessert time.
You’ll need a tall glass of milk to wash down these crazy rich triple-layer bars. Their fudgy brownie base, coconut cream cheese center and chocolate ganache topping will have you dreaming of chocolate coconut goodness for months to come.
This sweet dip, paired with graham crackers or vanilla cookies for dunking, acts as a deconstructed coconut cream pie. It will start as an attractive center piece at your next party and will quickly end as an empty bowl.
These four-ingredient pops get creaminess from coconut milk, a caffeine kick from coffee and sweetness from pitted dates and vanilla extract. Drizzle them with melted chocolate and sprinkle with shredded coconut for a delightful touch of texture.
Forget cotton candy; if clouds were edible, they’d most definitely taste like this light and pillowy coconut cake, frosted with the airiest of toppings and flecked with flaked coconut.
These soft vanilla cookies, sandwiched with coconut cream frosting, are like quadruple-stuffed golden Oreos.
Just when you thought dessert couldn’t get tastier than Samoas, BAM, it did: with a buttery graham cracker crust, vanilla ice cream, homemade caramel sauce, melted chocolate and toasted coconut, all combined in a blissful no-bake cake.
These comforting bars combine a rich shortbread crust with a soft and dense coconut filling. One bite will make you feel like you’re curled up on your grandmother’s couch, listening to family stories with a full belly and a happy heart.
There is no better way to utilize rich coconut cream than to let it seep through poked holes in a moist chocolate cake. This bad boy is generously topped with a frosting made from whipped cream, cream cheese, powdered sugar and vanilla — then sprinkled with crispy toasted coconut for a tantalizing textured experience.
Pina coladas take food form in these chewy coconut cookies, filled with a quarter-sized dollop of pineapple preserves for a treat fit for an island getaway.
Go vintage with this no-fuss pie recipe from the 1930s. A smooth custard is speckled with shredded coconut and baked, giving it the texture of creme brulee — but the flavor of coconut cream pie.
If you’re a candy lover, these chewy truffles will give you all the flavor of an Almond Joy bar — without the preservatives of processed candies. Their silky chocolate shells give way to a soft coconut filling and a crunchy almond surprise in the center.
This lovely layered dessert comes together in a pinch with store-bought pudding mix, vanilla wafers and toasted coconut. It’s so sweet and velvety, you’ll forget banana pudding ever existed.
Concoct a terrific teatime treat with these citrusy scones, topped with lemon glaze and crispy coconut — and perfect with a comforting mug of tea.

13 Unholy But Delicious Things To Do With Potato Chips (Recipes)
By Cooking Panda
It’s no secret that potato chips — smooth or ridged, plain or barbecue — are delicious straight out of the bag. Less celebrated, and shamefully so, is their ability to add an unexpected touch of whimsy to just about any dish. Here are 13 crunchiness things to eat with potato chips with an ideal combination of flavors in different ways to appreciate the salty, delicious things to do with potato chips, crispy, lays, powerful potato chip in everything from snacks to desserts. Potato is an important vegetable which covers a lot of dishes and we’re on the lookout to add more recipes that use potato chips, once found we’ll add those here too. If you want to know about things to do with chips, are thinking about what to do with potato chips or looking for recipes with lays chips, we have collection of recipe using potato chips:
cooking with potato chips and recipe with crushed potato chips!
Three-cheese pasta with crispy bacon, mushrooms and peas sounds great on its own. Try it baked with a parmesan and crushed potato chip crust, though, and you’ll wonder why you ever made mac and cheese without a bag of Lay’s.
Because everything tastes better with butter, sugar and chocolate.
These salty nachos are topped with far better than plain ol’ shredded cheese. They’re drizzled with a cheese sauce made from steak drippings, white wine, butter, cream and, oh yes, a mixture of blue and Gruyere cheeses. It’s poured carefully over the chips, followed by a generous helping of juicy steak and green onions, until each bite is laden with meaty, cheesy bliss.
Coated with kettle chips and panko breadcrumbs, these quick and easy oven-fried tenders have a guaranteed crunch factor.
A buttery, salty potato chip crust balances handsomely with a sweet chocolate and coconut cream filling. It’s rich, it’s sleek, it’s magnifique.
This warm chicken salad goes far beyond the classic mix-ins of celery and mayonnaise. It’s tossed with a flavorful seasoning mix, cheddar cheese and cooked bacon — and topped with potato chips and baked until crispy yet gooey. Eat it on your favorite bread, over a bed of greens or straight from the pan.
Inspired by onion dip, this surprisingly delicious appetizer gets creaminess from cream cheese, flavor from chopped chives and softened spring onions, and contrast from crunchy crushed chips. For a simple and elegant look, garnish it with whole chives before baking. To mimic the appearance of dip, spread it with sour cream, chives and extra chips.
These brownies cover every texture in the book: chewy fudginess from the brownie base, buttery silkiness from the chocolate topping, creaminess from Reese’s cups, and, of course, crunchiness from pretzels, Oreos and potato chips.
There’s nothing sad about this gloriously Southern combination of cheesy potatoes, cream of chicken, sour cream and crushed potato chips.
This addictive appetizer comes together with a bag of kettle chips, tossed on a pan and topped with brown sugar, maple syrup, cheddar cheese, bacon and cayenne, then baked. It’s so simple, I’m not sure if it sounds easier to make or easier to devour in one sitting.
Combine two essential party snacks into one with this sweet and salty bake.
Chips make a great side for sandwiches — until they get knocked off your plate. They serve a far better purpose inside of a sandwich. In this case, their saltiness cuts through the richness of cheese, and their crunchiness adds another dimension of texture to a tried and true treat.
We started with mac and cheese, so let’s end with it, too. These golden brown babies combine the soft creaminess of cheesy mac with the crisp saltiness of potato chips into one (OK, maybe two or three) glorious bite.Featured image credit: PixabayTags: Appetizer, appetizer with potato, brownies, buffalo chicken salad, cheese pasta, cheesy bacon, cheesy potatoes, chicken salad, chicken salad recipe, chicken tenders, chips, chips chicken tenders, chips recipe, chips toffee, chive cheesecake, cook potato chips, cookies, crack, crispy bacon, crunchy, crushed potato chips, desserts, do with potato chips, easy dinner, fired mac and cheese balls, Fried Snacks, Funeral, funeral potatoes, gorgonzola, grilled cheese, holiday crack, hot chicken salad, kettle chips, kitchen crack, mac and cheese, mac and cheese balls, panko breadcrumbs, potato chip grilled cheese, potato chip nachos, Potato Chips, potato chips chicken, potato chips chicken tenders, potato chips crust, potato chips recipes, potato chips toffee, potato cookies. potato chips cookie, potatoes, recipes, recipes with lays, salty, salty chocolate, salty chocolate tart, salty nachos, savory chive cheesecake, steak, steak and gorgonzola, things with potato chips, toffee
McDonald’s Hack Alert: The McFlurry Ice Cream Sandwich
By Cooking Panda
The latest and greatest McDonald’s hack is not for the faint of heart. It is not for someone who prefers to play it safe, to stick to lighter fare. It is instead for someone who is willing to take a walk on the wild side, to ingest quite a bit of sugar and to get a lot of chocolate on their face.
If that someone sounds like you, stick with me.
A creative and hungry Twitter user recently discovered that even though ice cream sandwiches are not on McDonald’s menu, it’s possible to create one by, here we go, ordering the McFlurry of your choice, plus two soft-baked chocolate chip cookies, and sandwiching it all together.
The result, in his case, was a dangerously chocolaty Oreo McFlurry sandwich situation.

His tweet has nearly 20,000 retweets, so it’s safe to say people think this is an excellent idea. And $2.57 isn’t too shabby a price, considering the generosity of the dessert and the fact that you’ll likely have leftover McFlurry to eat.
Others have been inspired to try it out for themselves.

Even McDonald’s is in on the trend.

This hack to end all hacks solves every problem of an inferior ice cream sandwich. The cookies are served fresh, so they’re soft and easy to bite into, and their temperature renders the ice cream perfectly melty. The McFlurry has a more whipped consistency than regular ice cream, which gives the entire sandwich a more pleasant sensation on the tongue. And it’s a McFlurry, meaning your already chocolate-chip-filled dessert can ALSO have M&M’s, Reese’s or Oreo bits. It’s not just delicious … it’s a game changer.
If you’re in need of other McDonald’s dessert hacks, the possibilities are aplenty.
Like this reverse of the McFlurry ice cream sandwich: Break up a couple of cookies, and stir the pieces into your favorite McFlurry.
Or this apple pie shake, for which you crumble up one or two apple pies and fold the chunks into a McFlurry or vanilla shake.
You could even create your own chocolate-covered strawberry sundae by ordering a fudge sundae and asking for strawberries and chocolate chips on top.
