When I think of February I think of chocolate. It’s inevitable with all the Valentine’s day prep in retail stores, grocery stores, and on the intertubes. Right now I’m looking forward to baking a Valentine’s cake of some chocolate variation, baking brownies, and even with all this chocolate coming in my future, I thought it would be a good idea to bake some cookies too. I’m a growing sideways girl after all.

I need to tell you something. Listen, ok? It’s important. You need to put Oreos in your cookies. It will change your chocolate-chip-cookie-loving life! You won’t regret it! I like adding a little Oreo to the mix, because it adds a bit of crunch at first bite when the cookie is warm right from the oven (awesome) and then on day two the Oreo chunks soak up some of the moisture from the cookies turning this cookie into a moist, chewy, Oreo cream filled blast of heaven!

Plus, who can resist these straight from the oven?

Nom nom nom.

Chocolate Chip Oreo Cookies

Yield: Just over 2 dozen cookies


  • 1 stick unsalted butter, softened
  • 6 tbsp sugar
  • 6 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 8 Oreo Cookies, chopped up into pieces
  • 1 cup chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, cream butter, and sugars until well combined. Add egg and vanilla until mixed well.
  3. Place flour, baking soda and salt into a medium bowl, stir to combine.
  4. Slowly add dry ingredients to wet ingredients then stir in Oreos and chocolate chips until just combined.
  5. With a medium cookie scoop (or small spoon), scoop onto a parchment or silpat lined baking sheet.
  6. Bake for 7-9 minutes or until cooked, but still soft. Let cool on baking sheet for 3 minutes before transferring to cooling rack.

    Ive had my eye on Jenny’s recipe for ages and you may have pushed me over the edge to make them. The cookies themselves (aside from the great add in’s) turned out PERFECTLY!

  16. I’m not sure any of the dough would get past my mouth and make it onto the baking sheet. Too yummy!

  17. Chocolate chips + Oreos + cookies. Can’t be bad!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  18. Two great things all rolled together! I need to make these ASAP!!! Have a great weekend.

  19. I laughed out loud when I saw this post – Oreos are one of my biggest vices that I sadly forced myself to give up long ago…and don’t get me started on chocolate chip cookies. I will certainly try this wonderful idea at some point – nice thinking!

  20. Tamara says:

    Did – did you just put cookies… in another cookie? This is the greatest thing I’ve seen since they put cookie dough in ice cream! I have to try these now, my mouth is watering~!
