What happened After I Microwaved Oreo for One and a Half Minutes

I took two different packs of Oreos. One pack with the white cream in the middle and the one with the chocolate cream.

I placed two of each on a microwave-safe plate and microwaved them at intervals of 30 seconds. In the first 30  seconds, nothing much had happened to them. In the second interval, the oreo with the chocolate cream at the center had begun to melt.

The other oreo with the white cream was also soft a bit but hadn’t melted as much. By the third interval that is after 1 minute and 30 seconds, both Oreos were soft and the creams had melted as shown below.  Both Oreos were yummier, softer and tastier!
