Triple Chocolate Oreo Cookies

Posted on

When I was in graduate school I had a great friend who would eat dinner with us every night. It was heaven! She and I both loved to cook and we would happily putz around my apartment kitchen and cause trouble. We didn’t have a dishwasher (besides my husband) but he generally kept quiet because we would concoct some pretty good stuff. Sadly, she now lives far away and I’m on my own in the kitchen. However, she sends great recipes my way for which I am endlessly grateful. On Mother’s Day she emailed this winner to me.

This recipe is incredible and I recommend that you drop what you are doing and get the ingredients. The Oreo flavor comes through and couples with the other flavors perfectly. I’m not usually one for white chocolate but in these it is wonderful. Don’t worry about chopping the Oreos perfectly, just throw them in a sandwich bag and get rid of whatever tension ails you.

 Triple Chocolate Oreo Chunk Cookies

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 ¼ cups flour

Preheat oven to 375. Cream butter and sugars. Beat in eggs and vanilla.

In a separate bowl, combine dry ingredients. Gradually incorporate into butter mixture. Mix in white chocolate chips, chocolate chips and Oreos . Bake for 8-10 minutes

Oreo Bites

When baking/cooking I get into little kicks and I will do similar things again and again until eventually I get sick of said kick. Apparently, I am currently on a bite/ball kick. I blame current fads around the blogs. Everyone is taking things and making them into little balls and bites. Much like everyone was into cupcakes not that long ago. Next up, pies. Mark my words. Anywho, bites and balls. I’ve been into them lately. What I’m not into? Calling balls or bites truffles. Anyone who has any respect for the culinary masterpiece that is truffles knows better than to slap the moniker on whatever bite sized food they feel like. Oreo truffles are the latest. These are not truffles but they are amazing. It is depressing how good they are considering how easy they are. Don’t you always feel like really good things should be at least a little difficult? Maybe that’s just me. Well these aren’t. But before you make them you should probably decide how you are going to dispose of them because if you don’t you will eat them all yourself.

A Few Notes: Many recipes for these call for crushing the Oreos and then mixing them with the cream cheese in another bowl or mixer. I don’t like superfluous dishes so I mixed them in the food processor. Save yourself some work and dirty dishes; do it all in the food processor. Also, chill the dough before rolling it into balls. Then chill them again before dipping them in chocolate. This dough is not particularly messy but it is spongy and soft. I know that sounds strange but you’ll believe me when you work with it. This may be because I used Double Stuf Oreos, a decision I don’t regret. If you’re gonna do it, do it right! Another thing, my Oreo balls are pretty ugly in the picture. That is because I’m cheap and I don’t like to waste melted chocolate. Therefore, I use the minimal amount of melted chocolate and constantly manipulating these little snacks to get the last bit of chocolate in the bowl makes them a bit wonky. If you want more attractive results use more chocolate to dip them in. The deeper the melted chocolate, the easier it is to make them pretty.

 Oreo Bites

Ingredients:

  • 1 8 ounce block of Cream Cheese, softened
  • 1 bag Oreos, I used Double Stuf
  • 8 ounces semi-sweet chocolate, melted
  • 2 tablespoons butter

Using food processor, process Oreos until crushed. Add cream cheese and pulse until well incorporated and mixture starts to come together. Chill mixture, about 1 hour. Form chilled mixture into balls and chill again. Melt chocolate and butter in microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring after each interval. Coat chilled balls in chocolate. Place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper until coated balls are set.

Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

If you made the dessert I posted earlier, Slutty Brownies, you may have some leftover cookie dough and Oreos. I know I did. What to do? What to do? Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies! I’ve had this “recipe” in my head since a friend mentioned he had read about it on the internet and thought I should give it a try. Okay, so it really isn’t a recipe so much as an idea/method. It’s worth giving it a try because they really are quite good. Be warned: you really won’t get all that many cookies out of doing this due to the amount of cookie dough it takes to cover an Oreo. Having said that, you don’t need more than one of these cookies to satisfy any craving.

Ingredients:

  • Bag of Oreos (you won’t need a whole bag)
  • Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough (use your favorite recipe)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Make a batch of chocolate chip cookie dough. Chill about 30 minutes (it will make it easier to work with but don’t chill it TOO long). Take a spoonful of cookie dough and place it on top of an Oreo. Place another spoonful on the bottom. Now seal it up around the Oreo. This may be a little time consuming and messy but it is worth it. If your Oreo breaks, who cares? Place cookie on parchment lined cookie sheet and bake for about 8-10 minutes.

Slutty Brownies

I have no idea why these brownies are called “Slutty Brownies.” If you look at them twice you won’t be able to fit into your skinny jeans, eat one and there is no way you’re going to be able to slither into that slinky thing you like to wear clubbing on Friday night. They should probably be named “Walk of Shame Brownies.”

Whatever the name, I made them. I don’t do slinky and I don’t go clubbing so I don’t care. I originally saw the recipe on Pinterest but it called for boxed stuff and we all know how I feel about that. So, I reworked it a bit using my recipes for Disgustingly Rich Brownies and Chocolate Chip Cookies. The Oreos came from the bag (I do buy some pre-made things). I confess, I used Double Stuf Oreos. You don’t need a whole bag of Oreos and you won’t use the whole recipe for Chocolate Chip Cookies. If you have a husband like mine he’ll take care of disposal of both or just save what you have left and use for later.

Slutty Brownies

Ingredients:

  • Brownie layer: I used my Disgustingly Rich Brownie recipe but whatever recipe will work that makes a 9×9 pan.
  • For the Oreo layer: 1 package of Oreo (regular stuffed or double stuffed)
  • For the Cookie Dough layer: Whatever Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe is your favorite

Mix together brownie batter according to the recipe.

Mix together the Cookie Dough.

Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees. Line the bottom of a 9×9 baking pan with tin foil and then spray the tin foil with a layer of baking spray. Layer 1/2 of the cookie dough on the bottom of a 9×9 baking pan, pressing down to form the bottom of the brownies. Reserve the remaining cookie dough to be used to make cookies later in the day. Layer as many oreos that will fit on top of the cookie dough. No need to overlap. One single layer will do. Pour the brownie batter on top of the oreo layer.

Bake for 40-45 minutes. Test with a knife to see if the center is done. Let the brownies rest before serving. Cut these brownies into small servings. A little goes a LONG way.
