My pants are tight.
Snug as a bug in a rug, people.
And do my friends bring me carrot sticks or offer to run with me? Oh no. Instead, they call my attention to cookie recipes involving Oreos stuffed inside two chocolate chip cookies.
I’m not one to place blame or name drop *cough* Rachel *cough*, since many of my friends do this. But y’all are killing me. You know I’m weak when it comes to sugary confections.
These Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies are now the most requested dessert, not only in my own house, but in all my kids’ friends’ homes! I’m also known around their school by teachers and administration. I swear these cookies could solve world peace.
Use homemade or store bought cookie dough
I always make these with homemade cookie dough (as written in the printable recipe card), but if you’re feeling lazy or don’t have the extra time, store bought chocolate chip cookie dough does work fine! Just keep in mind, though, that store-bought cookie dough is a bit thinner than this recipe and results in a crispier texture (and in my humble opinion, doesn’t taste as good.)
Bake them on a cookie sheet or in a muffin tin
Sometimes I roll these into balls and simply place on a parchment-lined cookie sheet – I sort of love their imperfect and rustic look that way. But this also has the drawback of the Oreo not being in the center after it’s baked. I want some of the chocolate chip and Oreo in every single bite…plus, uniformity. So more often than not, I bake them in muffin tins (as shown in the video.) But you can’t go wrong with either method.
My advice to you – make these. But make them right before you’re meeting a friend, or sibling, or an entire preschool class. So you can pawn them off on other
victims recipients. If not, make them now, while it’s still March and not bathing suit season. Because once that happens, I cannot be held responsible.

Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies
- 1 cup (2 sticks) softened unsalted 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
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat (2) 12 cup muffin tins with nonstick cooking spray.
- In a large bowl, cream butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar together with a mixer until well combined. Beat in eggs and vanilla.
- In medium bowl mix the flour, salt, and baking soda. Slowly add to wet ingredients along with chocolate chips until just combined.
- With a cookie scoop, form balls with the dough.
- Place one ball on top of an Oreo cookie, and another ball on the bottom. Seal edges together by pressing and cupping in hand until a large ball is formed and Oreo cookie is fully enclosed with dough.
- Place into the muffin tin cups. Bake cookies for approximately 16 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool for 5 minutes before transferring to cooling rack.
- The muffin tin ensures that the Oreo stays in the center after baking and that all the cookies are uniform, but you can certainly just form into balls and bake on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Keep in mind if you don't form them tightly, the dough can spread. Make sure they are 2-3 inches apart.
- You can use store-bought cookie dough, but the dough is a bit thinner than this recipe and results in a crispier texture (and in my humble opinion, doesn't taste as good!)
