Oatmeal Oreo No Bake Cookies

These are lovely.  I think of the 5 different variations of the original recipe, this one is my favorite.
In the series Our Cookie Nation, we recently made the favorite cookie for the state of Indiana-Easy No Bake Cookies, and I was inspired to try different varieties of flavors.
How can you go wrong with Oreo's? Not possible.

Oatmeal Oreo No Bake Cookies

2 c. sugar

3/4 c. butter 

2/3 c. milk

1 (3.9 oz.) box instant Oreo flavor pudding mix

2 1/2 c. quick cooking oats

1 c. crushed Oreo cookies (including center cream)

1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

In a large pan, mix together the sugar, butter and the milk. Bring to a boil. Boil 2 minutes. Turn off the heat, add in the pudding mix, crushed Oreo's, oats and vanilla. Let stand 5 minutes.
Drop by tablespoon onto waxed paper, and allow to cool completely.  Enjoy! Store in an air tight container.

The only down side I could to see with these cookies is the color.  They seemed a little gray to me, but my 2 adult kids mentioned "crazy" when I asked them about it.  Hmmm...

When do you add the Oreos ? I'm assuming when you add the pudding and oats, but just making sure

Oops! Yes, add the Oreo's when you add the oatmeal...thanks for pointing out my "duh" moment!
I will fix it immediately.

Just wanted to say thank you for these no bake recipes! I have a daughter who is allergic to peanuts, so it's nice to be able to have these for our arsenal since we can't make the peanut butter ones anymore. :)

I made these and they did not set. Any suggestions?
