Chocolate Wafer Cookies

Homemade copycat Oreo cookies with vanilla filling!
 Do you love Oreos? I mean really love Oreos? Yeah, me too. These aren’t Oreos though. In case you were wondering. These are crunchy chocolate wafer cookies with a delicious cream inside, but they are not Oreos. I didn’t want them to be, so there!
Actually, I had been wanting to try out a new filling, chocolate mocha. But, after tasting it (let me just say it’s YUM), I knew my kids wouldn’t enjoy it as much as me. So, I made some white chocolate dipped wafers and some vanilla cream wafers. I also left a couple dozen plain too! This recipe made ALOT of cookies. Which is good in our house, because I have ALOT of mouths to feed. Or at least it feels that way.

Actually, after looking at my pictures of these cookies, the mocha dollops remind me of caramel. Mmmm, that would be good too!

Enjoy all the different variations, or make some of your own. Or if you are my husband, eat them plain. I’m pretty sure those will be the ones he chooses! Or he might bring home a package of Oreos. He tends to buy that kind of stuff. Not me. I love him anyways.
EDIT: Might I just add that these only get better with age. They are super crunchy and good, going on day FOUR!

    You can buy black cocoa powder from King Author flour company for a closer looking cookie.
    Black cocoa is how Oreos get their color, I learned of this trick when I was in school.
