Oreo Sushi Ingredients:
How To Make Oreo Sushi:
Separate the cookies and the cream from the Oreo cookies.
Put the cookies in a food processor. Blend until you have cookie crumbs.
Add in 3 of the 4 tablespoons of heavy cream.
Stir in the heavy cream and form a ball of Oreo crumbles. The more you work the Oreo crumbles, the more the dough ball will come together. It really benefits from the heat from your hands.
Put the Oreo dough ball between two pieces of parchment paper.
Use a rolling pin to roll the Oreo dough ball into a rectangle.
Mix together the Oreo cream and the remaining tablespoon of heavy cream until a paste forms.
Spread the Oreo cream paste on top of the Oreo dough rectangle.
If your cream is a little thick, it will be hard to spread at first. Just keep working it back and forth with the back of a spoon. Working it will cause it to soften and make it really easy to spread.
You want to make sure that you completely cover the Oreo dough rectangle from end to end with the cream.
Gently roll the Oreo dough rectangle.
If you start rolling at the longer side, you’ll end up with more, but smaller, Oreo sushi. If you start rolling at the shorter side, you’ll end up with less, but fatter, Oreo sushi.
For a couple more tips on how to roll this, check out our Pinwheels Cookies recipe. It uses a completely different dough, but a similar rolling technique. So, you could technically consider these to be Oreo Pinwheel Cookies.
Wrap the Oreo log in both pieces of parchment paper. Put it in the fridge for about two hours.
NEW TIP: Veronica commented with a great tip for keeping the Oreo Sushi roll’s shape. After rolling it in parchment paper, cut either an empty paper towel roll or a plastic wrap cardboard cylinder across the top.
Slide the Oreo Sushi roll into the cardboard and put it in the fridge this way. It will keep the round shape in tack.
She uses this tip for slice and bake cookie dough too, which is brilliant.
Unroll the Oreo log and slice it into half inch pieces.
If you want to really feel like you’re eating sushi, you can use chopsticks and dip this Oreo Sushi into some chocolate sauce.
Oreo Sushi: Frequently Asked Questions
TikTok has a ton of videos for Oreo Sushi, which happens when things go viral. And of course, searching by hashtag doesn’t yield chronological results.
The oldest video for it that I can find is by @miluvia, from April 2021. The most popular one, though, is from @siennas.sweets with over 8 million views.
That’s the best I can find. But I’m old and don’t use TikTok and heard about it when Pete sent me a video of it on Instagram because we’re old and we don’t have TikTok accounts.
This is two ingredient Oreo cookies. And one of the ingredients is Oreo cookies. And Oreo is in the name.
But, you don’t have to use Oreo cookies.
What you do have to use is a cookie with a cream in the middle because you’ll need to separate the two from each other. So something like a Nutter Butter cookie will work, but a chocolate chip cookie would not work. At least, a chocolate chip cookie wouldn’t work in this manner.
A chocolate chip cookie may work if you use a frosting instead of a cream. I’ll have to try that out and report back. Although not until after Lent because I gave up chocolate for Lent (and I swear this Lenten season is double as long as usual).
In all the TikTok Oreo Sushi recipes, the creator used milk. I’m guessing that’s because people usually have milk at home instead of heavy cream.
So if all you have is milk, it’ll work.
I prefer heavy cream because it has a much higher fat content than milk, and I think it helps to add a little pizzazz to the recipe. But milk works fine, obviously.
If you have a food processor, it makes turning the Oreo cookies into a crumble very, very easy.
If you don’t have a food processor (or if you just have some anger that you need to get out), put the Oreo cookies into a ziptop plastic bag and crush them using a rolling pin.
Just be careful if you use that method. You may end up with sharp edges that puncture the bag. You might not notice it until you have a stream of Oreo cookie crumbs across your counter.
You definitely want to let the Oreo Sushi rest and firm up in the fridge before cutting it. We recommend letting it sit there for two hours.
Be careful where you lay it, though.
Laying the Oreo Sushi log directly on a shelf in the fridge means that one side will be against a flat surface and that will cause the log to flatten. So, instead, you want to sort of float the Oreo Sushi log.
I’ve found that the crisper bin usually have enough things in it that the Oreo Sushi log will be suspended enough in midair that it doesn’t flatten on one end.
If your log does flatten, just roll it on the countertop a few times to reshape it before cutting it.
Store Oreo Sushi in an airtight container. It will last for a week at room temperature or up to three weeks in the fridge.
