Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

Alright, confession time. My first impression of these cookies was not a super positive one. I mean, don’t get me wrong…I love a good chocolate chip cookie. And Oreos easily top the list among my favorite “store bought” cookies. The idea of combining them just threw me. When I first saw this Oreo creation on Picky Palate I thought they looked a little gross (sorry Jenny). Just a bit too sweet for my taste, which sounds so very wrong by the way. I was a little curious though. Then I saw them again on Sing for your Supper.  Boy, these were really getting around. I just couldn’t be left out. I caved to the peer pressure, and let me tell you that I am so glad I did. Oh boy…this one’s a doozy, but in a decidedly good way.

I am really not even sure how to describe these. They are very sweet, but delightfully so. I loved them warm from the oven all gooey and melty. Sooo good. Jenny recommends using Double Stuff Oreos and I wholeheartedly concur with that advice. If your looking for a fun and decadent treat these would definitely fit the bill! So, I stand corrected, these are amazing. Oh, and I’m already dreaming up other variations (just a warning)!

Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

recipe from the fantabulous Jenny of Picky Palate

2 sticks (1 cup) softened butter
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 tablespoon pure vanilla
3 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
10 oz bag chocolate chips
1 pkg. Oreo cookies

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Cream butter and sugars together with a mixer until well combined.  Beat in eggs and vanilla.

In a separate bowl mix the flour, salt and baking soda.  Slowly add to wet ingredients along with chocolate chips until just combined.  Using a cookie scoop take one scoop of cookie dough and place on top of an Oreo Cookie.  Take another scoop of dough and place on bottom of Oreo cookie.  Seal edges together by pressing and cupping in hand until Oreo cookie is enclosed with dough.  Place onto a parchment or silpat lined baking sheet and bake cookies 9-13 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool for 5 minutes before transferring to cooling rack.

NOTE: Some bakers have had some trouble with their dough spreading too much during baking. If that becomes a problem, throw the dough balls into the fridge for a quick chill before baking. That should solve the dilemma beautifully:-)

Makes about 2 dozen VERY LARGE cookies.

    Just sank my teeth into a cookie. Oh sooo delicious. No problems with the dough. Look like I’m doing double workouts after eating these. Here in Hawaii when something tastes this good we say “BROKE DA MOUTH”.
    Mahalo (Thank you) for sharing the recipe. Aloha *=o)

    My dough was super gooey….I double checked the recipe, don’t know what wwent wrong they came out a little dry :/

    I was so excited when I saw this recipe on Tue that I had to make them today, Sat.

    I’m no baker. I’m one of those people who loves to read recipes and reviews but I’m scared to try anything, even though I have a fabulous KitchenAid mixer.

    So tonight I had six people over, and being the Oreo’s 100th Anniversary Week, I had to make these.

    Here are a few hints for the non-bakers.

    The recipe is easy to follow. However, with the first few, I kind of moved them around my hands like someone making meatballs would. That ended up with a lot of broken Oreos within the choc chip cookie batter, although no one would probably know the difference. But I did learn that working with your fingers vs. the palms of your hands DEFINITELY fixes that problem.

    The other thing is you really can’t bury more than six Oreos into the batter before it’s time to put the batter into the fridge for a good thirty minutes. It just gets WAY too soft/warm/melty.

    So now you’ve made six cookie/Oreo bombs, refrigerated the dough and made six more and put them on your fancy-schmancy Silpat, and baked them. My oven took a good 20 minutes. These, like I said, are bombs, not cookies. They’re huge.

    Everyone I made them for said they were DELICIOUS but tasted exactly as if I had baked chocolate chip cookies and put them on a plate with a side of Oreos. In other words, not worth the effort. Bake a cookie, take a bite, them take a bite of an Oreo and you get the same (albeit easy) thing.

    I added this to my Pinterest account some time ago and just today had the chance to make these. I have 2 words…GOT MILK? These are delicious! Thanks so much for the recipe!

  5. Laura says

    So has anyone tried these with mini-chocolate chips? It seems when I use the big ones I break the Oreos. Probably because I’m pressing down too hard to get the big chips to stick.

  6. Leanna says

    As odd as this sounds, I am not a fan of oreos at all. But what attracted me to this recipe was my experience tasting deep fried oreos. It made them gooey and not hard at all, and it just worked! does this cookie make the oreo gooey too or does the oreo remain crispy?


  7. Kim says

    Hey Becky!

    Just wanted to say what a great recipe! I baked lovely oreo-stuffed cookies yesterday for my children and it went down a treat – they absolutely loved it! Your recipes are amazing, keep them coming :)

  8. Marilyn says

    spread too much even though I refrigerated for 30 min. took forever to cook.

  9. Debbie says

    I love this recipe <3 I had no problems with the making of the cookies, and everyone who ate them love the cookies too.

  10. sydney says

    Wow this looks so cool I was just wondering how big these getceveryone says thy r huge

  11. Katie says

    I cant bake

    NO really … so wondering about using Pillsbury cookie dough and if it will spread out too much…??


  12. Madeline says

    I had a craving for overindulgent sweet and chocolate, so I made these cookies. I ate one bite, and I fell in love. Thank you for this recipe!!

  13. Becky says

    Katie – try adding a couple extra tbsp. of flour to the dough. Chilling the dough balls before baking should also help! Happy baking:-)

  14. Helen says

    hi! I want to make these for my class and i want them fresh so i want to bake them in the morning. can i make the cookies and leave them in the fridge over night and bake them the next morning?

  15. Sandra says

    This is an amazing recipe! Thank you.
    They were well-liked by ALL (my co-workers, and my kids).
    This is a keeper. :)

  16. Bree says

    I tried this idea on my own and it was a disaster, the dough spread out and melted into a flat sheet with a Oreo bump in the middle. I hope this recipe works better.

  17. Alexis says

    I loved these cookies, they were absolutely delicious and I also found a good size. One was enough to keep you content! I’m so glad I ran into this blog, best thing to get you back in the kitchen and inspired. Great work!! Can’t wait to try all your recipes!

  18. Jess says

    Sooooooo… I just made these and they are like small pieces of heaven :). The only tips that I have are
    1) Listen to this women when she says to put the cookie dough in the refrigerator for at least 25-30 minutes to harden the dough.
    2) When you are mixing the first part (liquids) begin to also mix the chocolate chips into the liquid ingredients so that once you combine the powder and liquid ingredients together the chips are double mixed into the dough.
    3) Lightly cover the dough with the Oreo for two reasons; one you will be able to have more dough and cookies in the end and reach at least 2 dozen cookies, two they wont be so big in diameter.
    Alright those are my tips :) wishing you all good luck with this recipe, I know i did.

  19. Jess says

    One more thing soorry, if you guys don’t own a conventional oven, ( Which I don’t), then cook it for about 25 minutes this time, ( I believe), is for the conventional ovens.

  20. Becky says

    I have not tried this myself Michelle. The consensus has been to add a 1/4 cup of flour or so to the store bought mix. This should make the dough stay on the cookie when baked!

  21. Laura says

    Have just discovered your site!! I am so excited to try and make the Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookie! I make one similiar but it is a peanut butter cookie with a reeses cup in the middle or a snickers in the middle. But to put a cookie inside a cookie, Genius! I’ll let you know how it goes! Thanks

  22. Lyndsie says

    Making these for the second time now. First it was just a test to see how good they were but now I’m making 5 dozen for all the boys in my college automotive classes. Finals are tomorrow and I’m sure these would lighten us all up after those long, boring tests. Thanks for the most amazing-est cookies ever! 😀

  23. Gabby says

    i love the oreo stuffed chocolate chip cookies. next time imma make the nutter butter ones cuz they sound good too! !!!!!!! yay for these awesome recipes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  24. Cass says

    Making these right now! :) The dough got a little dry while I was mixing in the flour, but I just put in a splash of milk and that helped. You certainly weren’t kidding when you said they were very large. Mine are HUGE! Now my kitchen smells delicious! Thanks for posting! 😀

  25. Denise says

    Just made these with the Oreo fudge creme cookies (they ran out of regular Oreos at my supermarket – imagine that)… I put the batter in the freezer for about 5-10 minutes before putting them on the pan. I used a little baking spray on muffin/cupcake tins and they came out amazing! Thanks for posting the recipe.

  26. Charlene says

    I made these stuffed with Reese’s peanut butter cups . . . BETTER than the Oreos! And tomorrow, I will be experiencing stuffing each one with all different kinds of leftover Halloween candy! (Milky Ways, Snickers, etc.)

  27. Kitty Bea says

    This was just what I was looking for with a extra half pack of oreos around… very clever, but they are indeed huge cookies, for serving I actually cut them in half… and my brother thought they were a little salty, Idk. I did reduce the sugar a little since Oreos are already really sweet.

  28. Giannia says

    Great recipe! Made 2 batches for my job’s potluck today and they were a hit. Everyone kept asing for more, can’t wait to make them again!

  29. Kate says

    I just made these…cut the recipe in half because I wasn’t going to be making the whole package of Oreos. Somehow they turned out EXTREMELY greasy, not sure if it was the butter or maybe even the type of chocolate chips. Next time I’d try to use less butter.

  30. sarah says

    I was wondering can you make in advance? 24 hours or so before serving?

    Are they are good room temp as hot?

    Is the oreo mooshy inside?


  31. Deanna says

    I have to say these were a bit drier than I expected.i noticed they have one whole cup more flour than a reg choc chip recipe so I’m thinking I’d use less if I were to make these again

  32. Arianna Robillard says

    I used peanut butter oreos and they were a massive hit! So goooooood(:


  1. […] it would be a match made in heaven. Guess what? It totally is! Sorta reminiscent of the infamous Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookie from not too long ago and, dare I say it,  I actually like these even better. They are chewy, […]
