The staff over at RocketNews 24 decided to celebrate Oreo's 100th birthday last year by creating the perfect Japanese-American mashup, Oreo Rice. The concept is brilliant, using the rice cooker to steam the rice in milk instead of water to create a creamier grain. In order to properly infuse that classic cookie taste into the Japanese staple RocketNews 24 covered the milk and rice in a pack of Oreo cookies.

After adding all the sweet ingredients all that's left is to flip the cook switch. Waiting is literally the hardest part of this whole process but after about 20 minutes the triumphant ding means your dessert is complete!

At this stage, the rice doesn't look like a complete success but after mixing the softened Oreos with the creamy rice you'll have rice that looks more like asphalt than dessert but RocketNews 24 ensures pure deliciousness.

Even though the final result looks more like black mush there's actually some texture in there between the softened rice and crunchy cookie bits. The taste is described as tiramisu in risotto form which sounds like something we're definitely about. Although the concept was originally meant to be a fusion between an American classic and a Japanese staple it reminds me more of a Filipino dessert known as Champorado. Either way, this sounds amazing and I'll be trying it pronto.
