More fun with Oreos – Chocolate Chip Oreo Cookie Bars

Do you have a favorite type of Oreo?  Personally I like the ones that come out around Halloween time with the orange frosting.  They don’t taste any different from the regular ones I don’t think, but for some reason the orange makes it easier to consume an entire package of them…  I also like the […]
