Pumpkin Spice Oreo Iced Hot Chocolate

If you're like me when you go to the grocery store you meander down the seasonal isle to see all those delicious foods and treats.  I check the isle to see if any of my old favorites are available, all the while checking out all the new goods to see if any are calling my name.

Also, if you're like me, then you take notice of what new and great creation Oreo has piled on those shelves.  Birthday cake, tried it.  Mint Oreos, tried it and my little guy devoured the rest.  Then there's all those I haven't even gotten a chance to try; root beer, berry creme, cookie dough, Reese's, just to name a few.  I mean, Oreo has really expanded their brand.

When the different seasons roll around, it's not just Oreos with those brightly colored cremes that line the shelves, it's also various flavors that join the mix.  So, when fall rolled around and I browsed the cookie isle you can guess what caught my eye.  Pumpkin Spice Oreos.  It didn't take long for those puppies to find a place in my cart.

It took even less time for my little helper to spot the package of milk's favorite cookie and begin to persistently ask if he could have one.  As soon as we got to the car I caved in, not because his persistence paid off but because I was just as eager as he was to try these babies out.
While I could have sat and devoured the entire package in one sitting, I didn't.  Promise.  I had plans for these, one was to make sure they lasted more than a day!  The next thing was to a pumpkin flavored drink.  Then it came to me, make a pumpkin spice iced hot chocolate.  But, instead of pumpkin puree use those delicious Oreos.

Folks this drink is so dangerous.  I mean, dangerous in the fact that they are so easy to make and that it can be sucked down in no time making you want to go back for me.  The first time I made these they were gone in literally less than 5 minutes and I was quickly handed the cups with the request for more.
So, the proof is in the pudding...or in this case, the empty cups.  These are a must make.  They are chocolaty, creamy, with hints of pumpkin and cookie pieces in every sip.  So what are you waiting for?  Go to the store now.  Literally now, and buy a pack or 5 of Pumpkin Spice Oreos.  Go, buy, and come home and make this immediately!
