Chocolate Sandwich Cookies

My husband has a serious Oreo addiction. We’re talking a pack a week here, if I let him. And I get it! There’s something seriously addictive about those little chocolate sandwich cookies. We’d run out of our third package when I started wondering if I couldn’t make some myself.
