I love oreos. In fact, we almost always have some in the pantry. Right now they’re thin oreos, but I love pretty much all oreos, even those with wacky flavors like cinnamon bread and carrot cake. There is just something incredibly nostalgic about the taste of oreos. They make me feel like all is well with the world. It is also not sponsored. I love oreos. Whenever I see a new oreo trend, I have to try it. These little oreo rolls are super cute and really easy to make.
What is oreo sushi?
Oreo sushi is made from oreos, crushed and reshaped into sushi rolls. Basically, you take oreos, separate them, crush the cookies, and then mix them with milk to create a paste. The dough is rolled out, then spread with oreo cream. Roll everything up and slice it, like a sushi roll. Oreo sushi comes to us via Tiktok and it looks like @ mariahortiz20 is the one who popularized it.
How to make oreo sushi
- Separate cookies. Turn the cookies and scrape the cream into a bowl. Repeat until all cookies and cream are separated.
- Crush the cookies. Place the chocolate cookies in a food processor and mix until the cookies turn into a fine crumb.
- Make the dough. Add 3 tablespoons of milk to the cookies and mix until everything comes together into a paste.
- Roll out the dough. On a piece of plastic wrap, shape the dough into a coarse rectangle with your hands. Use a rolling pin to roll out the dough evenly. Trim the edges so they are straight.
- Mix the cream. Mix the cream with 2 teaspoons of milk, until smooth and creamy.
Spread the cream. Spread the cream evenly over the base of the cookie.
- Roller. Wrap the cookie tightly around the cream, using the plastic wrap to help. If you have time, wrap the roll in plastic wrap and let it sit in the fridge for a while.
- Slice. Use a sharp knife and cut the roll off to make cute little rounds of sushi and enjoy!
- Oreos – I opted for standard oreos because they have the perfect cream / cookie ratio.
- Milk – You can use any type of milk you like, non-dairy included. If you use vegan milk, this oreo sushi ends up being vegan because oreos are naturally vegan!
How to make perfectly round rolls?
As you roll up the sushi, roll it slowly, evenly, and firmly across the entire roll, using the plastic wrap as a guide. For cleaner washers, wrap the roll in plastic wrap and place in the fridge for a few minutes to firm up before slicing. When slicing, use a slicing motion instead of just pressing down on the knife.
Why is my oreo sushi crushed?
It is possible that your Oreo Base is too hot or that you added too much milk to the Oreos when making Oreo Dough. Try putting rolled sushi in the fridge to firm it up a bit before slicing.
My oreo dough keeps falling apart
This is probably because you don’t have enough milk in your oreo cookies. Add a little more, a teaspoon at a time, until the oreo dough can be crushed into a ball and hold its shape.
Should I use oreos?
You can use any cream sandwich cookie! You can even do this with other flavored Oreos, not just the classic.
Do i need a food processor?
It is easier to do with a food processor, as the food processor can break oreo cookies into a fine crumb, which makes it easier to form a dough. It also helps to mix the milk in the oreo cookies. We have this one, it was not too expensive and it lasted us a long time!
How to crush oreos without a food processor?
If you don’t have a food processor, take your oreo cookies and place them in a ziplock bag and mash the cookies, as much as you can, until they turn into fine crumbs. You can use a rolling pin to crush them and roll them over.
I don’t have a rolling pin, how do I make oreo sushi?
If you don’t have a rolling pin, you can use a bottle or something with straight edges to roll out the dough. It might not be as pretty, but it will definitely work!
How to spread the cream evenly?
My all-time favorite too for spreading things out evenly is an offset spatula! You can also place a piece of plastic wrap over the cream and use a rolling pin to gently roll it out.
