Turning Oreos Into A Sushi-Inspired Dessert Couldn't Be Easier

If you enjoy biting into a freshly opened package of Oreo cookies as a sweet snack and look forward to nights when sushi is on the menu, we have a new recipe for you to try. Get ready to bring your favorite milk-dipping ingredient to your next sushi dinner party, as crunchy Oreo cookies can help you create a delicious dessert that will elicit murmurs of intrigue and surprise upon serving.

According to TikTok user Mariah Ortiz, you only need a few ingredients to assemble these sweet sushi rolls after dinner: Oreos, milk or condensed milk, and your choice of sauce for dipping (try the sushi Oreos on their own, then decide if you'd prefer to dip the treat into melted chocolate, caramel sauce, or a whipped strawberry mousse). Similar to rolling out regular sushi rolls, making Oreo-inspired dessert sushi takes some effort, but with a bit of practice, you'll soon feel like a master sushi chef and be rolling out dessert sushi with ease.

To begin, separate Oreo cookies by scraping the center filling into one bowl and setting aside the cookies in another. After disassembling the Oreos, place the crunchy cookies into a plastic bag or food processor and break the bits into fine pieces. Once you've ground the cookies into powder, add your choice of milk (dairy or a milk alternative) or condensed milk to the crumbs and stir until a thicker dough-like paste forms.

Once you have a moldable dough to work with, roll out the softened cookie paste between two sheets of parchment paper, wax paper, or saran wrap. Swipe the creamy filling on top of the surface you've created, and place another sheet of plastic wrap or wax paper on top of this layer to roll the combination into a thinner, more pliable medium.

Finally, use the wax paper or saran wrap to roll up the two layers into a long, round cylinder. (This will more closely resemble the kind of rolls you may have seen served at sushi restaurants). Desiccated coconut, sesame seeds, or chopped nuts can be added to the top of your finished rolls for extra texture and flavor. To plate your dessert, slice the roll into bite-sized pieces and serve with dippings, toppings, or ice cream of your choosing.

Once you've mastered the basic recipe, you can experiment with using different kinds of Oreo cookie flavors or adding food coloring to the creamy filling for a boost of color. Upon offering this aesthetic dessert to your dinner guests, not only will the appearance of the dish impress your friends, but the satisfying experience of handling sweet sushi treats with fingertips or chopsticks will earn praise — and plenty of updates to your friends' Instagram feeds.
