Smoked bacon wrapped Oreos. Yes, you read that right. It sounds like culinary insanity but they are beyond delicious. Smoky + salty + sweet + chocolate = smoked Oreo deliciousness.
I'm not one to succumb to peer pressure, but sometimes the crowd is doing something that catches my attention.
This is one such time.
The first time I saw this recipe posted in one of many Traeger/smoker fan groups, I'll admit, I rolled my eyes and thought "you guys are like hippies, you'll smoke anything". Then the posts increased and increased and what was a tiny whisper became a roar.
I had to see what I was missing.
Let me tell you. I was missing a lot! You HAVE to try this recipe at least once, for posterity, and then subsequent times because it's that good.
This smoked bacon wrapped oreos recipe is dedicated to trying new things.
Tips + tricks
No. 1 --> Avoid wrapping your bacon too tightly, the first time I made these bad boys I wrapped too tight, and it kind of collapsed my cookies. They were just as delicious, but a little bit crumbly.
No. 2 --> Freeze your bacon a bit. Fridge or room temperature bacon cuts terribly. Semi frozen bacon is a bit harder to separate but cuts sooo much better.
No. 3 --> Speaking of bacon, I used store-bought bacon for this recipe instead of our home smoked bacon because I wanted suuuper thin bacon, and we generally slice ours on the thicker side.
No. 4 --> I whipped up a small batch of rub for this recipe that had some heat but skipped the garlic/onion/ savory flavors better suited to meat, and I'll include the information in the recipe card below, but if you don't want to make your own, feel free to use store bought.
- thin sliced bacon
How to make
- Place your bacon in the freezer until semi frozen, usually about half an hour is good. Peel off individual strips of bacon, and slice in half lengthwise.
- Gently wrap each Oreo cookie with a half strip of bacon, and place seam side down on a cookie sheet line with parchment paper.
- In a small bowl, mix up your rub, or grab a store bought rub.
- Sprinkle a small amount of rub on top of the bacon on each wrapped cookie.
- Allow the cookies to sit and "marinate" while your smoker preheats to 225f. This will help adhere the spices to the bacon.
- Smoke the cookies directly on the grill grates at 225f for 90 minutes.
- Remove the smoked Oreos from the smoker and allow to cool before diving in.
The only limitation on this recipe is your imagination.
Wanna try a maple cookie? I did it, they were fantastic! Wanna do a chocolate chip cookie? Giv'er! I'd just avoid anything with a chocolate coating - as it would melt and make a mess!
I think a small smear of peanut butter, or caramel, on the cookie before wrapping would be next level.
These cookies can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for a couple days. Just cool them completely then drop them into a container and pop in the fridge.
To reheat, toss them in the air fryer for a minute, and YUM!
