“Fluffy buttercream frosting loaded with crushed Oreos. Easy, quick and delicious cookies n cream frosting recipe”

My son Ethan only eats the inside of Oreo cookies. I can always tell when he’s snuck into the snack cabinet because I find all of these icing-less cookies sandwiched back together and crammed into the trays.

I’m pretty sure that is why he loves this cookies n cream frosting so much. It taste like much better than the  Oreo cream filling.

Homemade frosting is so easy and quick to make there really isn’t a reason to turn to that stuff in the can. Beside there is nothing that taste better than frosting made with fresh butter. Just can’t beat it!

Remember when making the perfect frosting you want to add just enough milk to get the consistency you are going for. Less milk=a firmer frosting and more milk=a softer frosting.

Add the milk a little bit at a time since it doesn’t take much to go from one consistency to another. If you accidentally add more milk you can just throw in more sugar to firm it back up.
