Like. Woah was this good. It is also VERY rich. I know you’re reading the first ingredient and thinking HOW MANY OREOS?! But you say that like you haven’t eaten a whole row of Oreos before while binge watching Netflix… no? Just me? Anyhoo. I’m a believer in all things in moderation. Especially if it’s…
