These were posted by Mrs Lucci on TOH this morning just as I was going to post them! I got the recipe from my son's girlfriend who must have gotten them from the Kraft site. Made them yesterday and they were just sinful! I got about 50 cookies and double-dipped them to use up all of the chocolate, then dipped them in the reserved crumbs. I used a blender to make the Oreo crumbs, so easy!
