In the last couple weeks, Oreos have gotten kind of a bad rap. Being compared to illegal substances and the like, we have to admit, we’ve been sort of bummed out about our favorite cookie. But, it’s a new week, and we still love Oreos like the dickens and it’s almost Halloween. Time to give these darlings another chance!

1. No-Bake Oreo Cheesecake: How scrumptious does this look? We love the use of those neon orange Halloween-themed Oreos. (via The Chic Table)

2. Mini Oreo Pumpkin Cheesecakes: Pumpkin cheesecake is so ridiculously good, so add an Oreo crust and you’re definitely in business. (via Yummy Mummy Kitchen)
