There’s one time of day that I love the best, it’s around 1:30. The youngest kids are napping and my oldest is still at school so I can have a moment for me. This usually involves a snack that’s “just for mommy.” Lately, I have been drinking iced coffee and once I discovered OREO Thins I had to have them. I found them at my local CVS and immediately bought 2 packages. They come in Original, Golden, and Mint. The amazing thing about them is their new cookie, it’s thinner and crispier – a sophisticated cookie that are great for Mom and Dad. They make folding laundry feel fancy. You can see them in action here!
Since these cookies are so good on their own, they need a no-fuss drink to go along with them. In Hawaii, it is still very much summer so Iced Coffee is my new go-to. And I don’t mean ones from a machine. This coffee is steeped overnight so I make a big batch on Sunday and then I am good to go for a week’s worth of Me Moments.

Want to make some Iced Coffee too? Let’s get to it!
You’ll need 3.5 cups of water, 1 1/4 cup coffee grounds, and a carafe. This has to sit out on your counter for at least 12 hours so I picked one of my prettier water carafes to use. You can use anything though, as long as it has a lid or you’ll need some plastic wrap to cover the top.
Depending on your carafe, you may need a funnel to complete steps 1 and 2. Step one is to spoon the coffee into the carafe. It will look like a lot of coffee. That is okay, you’re making 5 days worth, you need a lot of coffee.
Once all the coffee is in, slowly add the water. I had to stop every 1/3 of the way to stir the coffee. You’re making a concentrated batch so it will not all dissolve but you need all the water so be sure to stop and stir. Once it’s all in, wait 12-24 hours and then move onto the next step.
Dump the coffee into a bowl and wash your carafe. Make sure to get all the grinds out. Using a fine mess strainer, slowly pour the coffee back into your carafe. You will have a lot of grinds left in the bowl. If your strainer gets full, be sure to dump it out before moving on. You don’t want to drink the grounds!
Your carafe should be about 2/3 the way full of the coffee concentrate when you’re done. Top it off with water and put it in the fridge. This is also the time to grab a couple OREO Thins as a reward for all that straining. 😉 When the coffee is cold, it’s ready to drink!
When you’re ready to drink your coffee and eat some (a lot) more OREO Thins, fill your mug up with ice and then fill it with coffee. You can add your favorite sweetener if you’d like or you can just enjoy the delicious sweet OREO Thins.
Honestly, I enjoy the OREO Thins with or without iced coffee. They are the perfect balance of crispy and cookie. Head over to your CVS and grab a couple packages for yourself. How will you enjoy your OREO Thins?
