Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

I wasn’t lying about the Oreos.

This is actually a thing. This is a whole Oreo stuffed inside a very large, very delicious chocolate chip cookie.

This is serious business people. I don’t joke about cookies inside of other cookies.

I don’t even have good flavour text to go with this recipe.

It’s exactly what it sounds like.

Make cookie dough.

Scoop dough.

Smoosh around a double stuff Oreo in its entirety.




So I’m just going to drop this recipe in front of you guys and back away slowly. You don’t need me. You just need these cookies.

Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

Recipe from Picky Palate via BonAppetit.com

This is not my usual Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe, but I suspected that mine would spread too much and reveal its delicious innards prematurely, so I used the cookie recipe included in the original recipe.


  • 1 cup (2 sticks) softened butter
  • 3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 3 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 package Double Stuff Oreo cookies


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Cream butter and sugars together with a mixer until well combined.  Beat in eggs and vanilla.
  3. In a separate bowl mix the flour, salt and baking soda.  Slowly add to wet ingredients along with chocolate chips until just combined.
  4. 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.

Makes about 2 dozen enormous cookies. It is like 3 cookies in one afterall!

  5. OMG Amanda….I made these to bring to a Superbowl party tonight – I don’t think they’re going to even make it there! These are AMAZING! My brothers have declared this their favourite cookie. I think next time I might test a few other surprises inside – like a toblerone triangle, or a piece of chocolate bar! :) This cookie-inside-a-cookie has opened up a whole new world of baking. Thanks for sharing.

  6. Ryan gave me a report on these as soon as he got home-I see making this recipe in my future because he loved them! (And the mint brownies were a big hit of course!) I told all my friends about these cookies!

  7. Hi Amanda,
    It’s Jenny from Picky Palate. I actually created this recipe and I appreciate your link to my site, however you also mentioned …”recipe by Becky Bakes” Becky took the recipe from my site, so if you could edit your links I would greatly appreciate it! This recipe will be featured in my upcoming cookbook, so this is important to me, thanks so much!! Yours look beautiful by the way :) Here’s my link: http://picky-palate.com/2011/01/06/oreo-stuffed-chocolate-chip-cookies/

  8. do these still taste the same even after they aren’t warm anymore? they look so yummy! but i don’t want to be disappointed when they harden.

  9. Christina – I fully endorse this idea of a chocolate bar inside a cookie! :)

    Avril – Thanks! Hope you enjoyed them!

    Momzilla – I’m glad Ryan liked everything enough to talk about it at home!

    Jenny – Fixed!

    Cherie – Thanks!!

    amanda – They still taste good after they fully cool down! They’ll still be soft, just not gooey. However, I wouldn’t keep them around much longer than a couple days as the stiffer cookie dough recipe gets that “hard” feeling a little sooner.

  10. I had made chocolate chip cookies with my nieces last weekend, and I decided to try the Toll House cookie dough with the Oreos. You were right, they spread all over the pan, leaving an Oreo lump in the middle. Not that they weren’t fabulous! I will definitely try them with this recipe and then share, share, share!

    You are a fabulous photographer, by the way. Is photography your day job?

    Happy baking!


  11. Oh wow. I made these today as a V-day gift for a very picky boyfriend. I haven’t given them to him yet, but I did split one with my sister…wowza! Seriously rich, but delicious!

    I think I may have over-coated the oreo, since it only gave me 14 cookies total…but they’re still delicious and they still look really really cool! Thanks for the recipe!

  12. You’re a genius. I second the comment about thisiswhyyourefat.com. I want to eat this for breakfast while drinking a diet coke; is that wrong?

  14. Kris – Thank you so much, I think asking if I’m a professional is the best compliment you could pay any of my photos. :) But no, I’m not, I just a lucky gal with a fabulous camera and a good light source in her living room!

    Casey – Did he like them?

    Vicki – Haha, totally, a fatty food stuffed in another fatty food is definitely thisiswhyyourefat.com material!

    onioncloute – Oh, I’m no genius, Jenny from http://picky-palate.com is the real genius, it’s her recipe! I just made it. :)

    Beth – Mine was a huge fan as well!

  22. These sound frighteningly good.. and the sad thing is.. I’m going to save the recipe!

    One cookie – enogh dessert for the week.. but how many people will stop at just one?

    Thanks for planting such a wacky desire to bake in me this morning.

  23. OMG! You inspired me to try this tonight – I took a shortcut by using pre-made dough and the cookies didn’t turn out nice and compact like yours but still tasty. Also tried it with Girl Scout Thin Mints – yum! Thanks for sharing and all the great recipes.

    I linked to your wonderful recipe from my blog as well. :)

  27. nikima – oh man, milk really is a must here, good call on the list!

    Lucy – they look that way because they are ;)

    Jennifer – I’m glad you partook!

    HisFireFly – I certainly didn’t stop at just one. Or two. Did I get tummy ache? Maybe. Was it worth it? Oh yes.

    Ilias – Badass indeed, my brother in law likes to call them “cookie bombs”

    Jennifer – Yeah, I’ve found that other softer and more standard choc. chip cookie recipes spread a lot. And my goodness, do I need to try the thin mints route.

    Katie – Thanks so much for linking, I really appreciate it!

  28. I made these for some friends, and they were incredible. I couldn’t even finish a whole one, nor could anyone else – but oh, how we wanted to! I brought the leftovers to work with me, and everyone was head over heels for these cookies. Thanks! :)

  33. I tried to half the recipe because I didnt want to make so many and it spread all over the pan! what did I do wrong? is there any way of making a smaller amount without this happening?

    • That’s odd, halving the recipe shouldn’t affect the spreading! What type of pan did you use? Insulated pans don’t work as well because the even heat distribution causes the bottom of the cookie to not set, thus the spreading. Also, make sure the butter is just softened but not melting.

      One thing you could try would be to refrigerate the formed cookies on the cookie sheet, covered with saran wrap, for at least 30 minutes to 2 hours before baking them. Cold cookie dough doesn’t spread as much.

      Best of luck, hope this helps!

  35. Before I read the comments,I was also afraid the cookie dough would spread(it happened to my chocochip cookie before)I will follow the recipe.Thanks for sharing this!

  36. Alisa – check out my notes above to Nina for other tips to avoid spreading!

    Anna – Oh goodness, I love timtams! I wish they were more readily available in the US!

  39. These were amazing! I am currently (like, literally right now they are in the oven) attempting these a 2nd time, but with a twist…. Mint Oreo’s with chocolate cookie on the outside that has Andes mint chips in the batter. Hope they are as good as the original!

  41. My only problem with these is that the dough spreads out too much when I bake them. I’ve tried altering nearly everything in the recipe to prevent them from doing so, down to even putting ingredients in in a different order. How do you keep them from spreading out on the cookie sheet?

  42. lizzie – Totally! You could even use Nutter Butters, I hear those work great too!

    Ian – Haha, me too :D

    noelle & Khepri – My best suggestion would be to refrigerate the dough for about a half hour after you form the cookies around the oreos, before you bake them. Also, don’t use an insulated cookie sheet. They’re designed to have an even distribution of heat between the oven and the sheet instead of the sheet being the hottest thing touching the cookie. This is bad for this type of cookie, because you want the bottom to set quickly so that spreading doesn’t occur. My last suggestion would be to buy an oven thermometer and see what your oven’s version of 350 degrees actually is. Oven temperatures vary much more widely than you would think. I’ve had ovens where 350 on the dial actually meant 330 in the oven.

    Hope this helps.

  49. My soon to be 16 Grand Daughter, makes the best treet with Mint Oreos. I am printing this for her & a copy to put in a Recipe Box from Grandma. All the things she loved as a kid when she use to stay with me in the summer time. When I am gone, she can remember the great times we had when she makes these for her children.

  55. I bet those are yummy! But I cant eat those right now because sadly I have a toothache maybe tomorrow i’ll visit my local dentist and maybe he can relieve the pain.

  56. They look delicious!! i would just like to ask…are they not too sweet? anyone who has tried them could you let me know :):)? because i’d like to make them for a friend but she doesn’t like them too sweet…

    • They’re preeetty sweet. Imagine taking a big bite out of a standard chocolate chip cookie, then taking a bite out of an Oreo while the chocolate chip cookie was still in your mouth. Not for the faint of heart!

  57. yeah im being a bit thick right now but how much does it mean by one cup? does it mean a tablespoon?
    Im sorry guys me asking a stupid questionbut i would like to know…

  59. I have made these cookies for various family and work events – they are always in demand! I have been switching up the Oreo used on the inside to apply to the event, i.e. Halloween themed Oreos for this weekend :-)

    • Oooh a muffin tin would be a fabulous idea to help with spreading! You could also put the dough in the fridge after you form them around the Oreos for 30 minutes to an hour. Especially if it’s a particularly hot day!
