      These were a hit at the last potluck! I simply chopped oreo cookies (filling and all) in my food processor- and it looked like rich topsoil. Thanks!

      The title says it all! This is a great and fast way to whip up Halloween treats! I usually like to make everything from scratch but today I was low on time and these turned out wonderful! My husband was so impressed and said the "dirt" tasted great! Thanks so much for the easy fix!I promise I will be making these again!
