So many of my favorite copycat recipes have been Back-to-School themed! If you haven't already, these Copycat Oatmeal Cream Pies are a MUST try. I loved them so much, I made them in bar form too!

But if chocolate is more your thing, I've got you. These Copycat Hostess Cupcakes were so epic that I also made them in layer cake form (see my Hostess Cupcake Cake Recipe).

Another one for the chocolate lovers: Copycat Cosmic Brownies. These were my personal favorites as a kid. Those rainbow chips on top always won me over!

How do I Make the Jelly Creme Filling?

The jelly creme filling is really much simpler than you might think! There are two components:

First, the “creme” portion of the filling. If you are a stickler for authenticity, then I highly recommend using the cream filling recipe in my Hostess Cupcakes post. For these jelly creme pies, I decided to stray just a bit and make a cream cheese filling that would be slightly less sweet to offset the cookies, chocolate, and jam. It's like a grown up version of creme pie filling.

➋ I used a little bit of Smuckers strawberry jam for the jelly filling. Feel free to use whatever strawberry spread you like the best!
