Recipe Notes

The Real Cookies and Cream! Yes, I know, a little arrogant; but, I have mixed several cookies and cream by various mixers, and while they have been great, most lack that Oreo taste and texture that I associate with a cookies and cream. So with that said, this is my take on a real cookies and cream. It's not perfect, but it's pretty damn close.

As any mixer can attest to, chocolate is hard to get right. Especially when you're going for an Oreo tastes and texture. Oreo's have a distinct chocolate taste unlike a chocolate bar. It's more of a dry, dark, gritty taste with a luscious cream smashed between. I went through 7 versions to try to get the Oreo right. My first choice of cookie was FA Cookie, and that was exactly the right cookie to start with. The chocolate was a different matter. I started with TPA Double Chocolate(clear) at 2%. And while the chocolate was there, it was too "in-your-face" and slightly bitter so I brought it down to 1%. That seemed pretty close. I also tried combining INW Milk Chocolate, and while it's a good chocolate to work with, it tended to make the recipe into more of a chocolate shake, and that was not what I was going for. I ended up settling on TPA Double Chocolate (clear) at .75% and it seems spot on, especially when combined with FA Cookie at 2%.

Now the cream. This was probably the easiest of the layers. TPA Bavarian Cream is one of the best flavors in any mixers arsenal. It's creamy, rich, and has a depth that some creams fall short on. When paired with CAP Sweet Cream at .5%, it lends itself well to that sweet and creamy center of an Oreo. Last, but not least, the TPA Vanilla Bean Ice Cream. My original version didn't have this flavor and while it was a good cookies and cream, it was more like a double cream Oreo cookie. It seemed to need a little extra push into a Real Cookies and Cream and TPA Vanilla Bean Ice Cream at 1% did the trick. I added CAP Super Sweet at .25% to sweeten things up a bit, and voilĂ , The Real Cookies and Cream!
