"Tastes just like a chocolate wafer pie crust...but only has 5 ingredients as opposed to about 50! This is extremely easy and I promise you won't do more work than if you used chocolate cookies."

I love this recipe, I never have Oreo crumbs but I always have these ingredients, remember to use 325 degrees, burnt my first one since I didn't read the directions properly.
