But back to these adorable, sweet and ridiculously easy OREO truffle birds’ nest cookies. The yellow melted chocolate brings bright and cheerful color and the candy eggs offer chocolatey crunch perfect to pair with the Golden Oreo and cream cheese mixture.
Tips for making Bird Nest Cookies:
These cookies only require four ingredients. They are one of the easiest (and cutest) cookies I’ve ever made.
- Take the cream cheese out of the fridge a few hours prior to let soften.
- I used a food processor to crush my Oreos but you could always use a rolling pin and large freezer bag.
- Let the melted chocolate cool a few minutes after melting and then scoop it into a small sandwich bag. Snip one corner with scissors and then squeeze the melted chocolate into the cookie cups.
These cookies are so fun to make and my kids loved helping make them, just as much as they enjoyed eating them!

How do I keep cookies from going stale?
When it comes to keeping cookies from going stale, there are a few important things to keep in mind. First and foremost, proper storage is key.
Cookies should always be kept in an airtight container, such as a cookie jar or Tupperware container, to prevent air and moisture from getting in and causing them to go stale.
It’s also important to avoid exposing cookies to heat or sunlight, as this can also lead to staleness.
For particularly fragile cookies, you may want to consider placing a piece of bread or an apple slice in the container with them to help keep them moist.
By following these simple steps, you can keep your cookies fresh and delicious for days or even weeks to come.
What are the most popular cookie flavors?
When it comes to cookies, the flavor options are endless. From classic chocolate chips to unique combinations like salted caramel and oatmeal raisin, cookie enthusiasts have a plethora of options to choose from.
However, according to recent surveys, there are a few flavors that seem to reign supreme in popularity.
Topping the list are chocolate chip cookies, which have been a beloved classic for generations.
Following close behind are peanut butter cookies, adored for their creamy and nutty taste.
Other popular flavors include oatmeal, sugar, and Snickerdoodle.
While personal preferences may vary, it is clear that these tried and true flavors continue to hold a special place in the hearts (and stomachs) of cookie lovers everywhere.
