Birthday Cake Chocolate Chip Cookies...loaded with chocolate, cake mix AND Oreos! | Cookies and Cups

Birthday Cake Chocolate Chip Cookies are pretty much a reason to celebrate everyday of the year! These are packed with chocolate, Birthday Cake Oreos AND cake mix. It’s possibly the perfect chocolate chip cookie recipe.

I originally posted this recipe about 3 years ago…and I will tell you they are one of my most favorite cookies to make. They pretty much cover all the dessert-bases. Except Jello. No Jello here.

Anyhow, I was never happy with the pictures that I posted. They just didn’t do these babies justice!

So today I present you the 2016 version on my Birthday Cake Chocolate Chip Cookies…fresh with a few recipe tweaks and bright shiny pictures!

Pure love!

These are super simple, actually.

Start with these delicious Birthday Cake Golden Oreo cookies…

If you don’t have these in your area or can’t find them, totally just use a vanilla sandwich cookie in its place or just regular Golden Oreos.

This cookie dough you guys.  It’s SO SO SO good.  Like maybe my favorite dough ever.

I literally couldn’t stop eating it.

My original recipe called for chilling the dough, and while you can still TOTALLY do that. I’ve tweaked it a bit so you don’t have to if you don’t want to! Patience has never been my thing!

  1. Shelly, they are amazing looking! I have never had or even seen the cake batter oreos, but now I need them in my life and these cookies! I swear you make some of the best cookies around!

  2. I just perfected my own cake batter chocolate chip cookies and now you go and up the ante with these! I mean, birthday cake oreo cookies in the cookie? How can I compete with that?

  3. These sound PERFECT!!

    I had a keyboard in the 5th grade. I went through a HUGE phase…I played it constantly. I would pull the bench that went with my vanity up to it and taught myself Hey Jude. Which incidentally, is the ONLY song I taught myself.

    Weird, much?

    Tried it out. Way too much sugar, kids found it too rich. That shocked the hell out of me. Next back will use 1/2 cup of brown sugar.

  5. Celebrating the fact that it’s summer is TOTALLY warranted! Love how you combined two birthday treats to make this ULTIMATE celebratory cookie!

  6. Little Buddy just discovered these Birthday Cake Oreo cookies a couple of weeks ago – but girl you knocked it out of the park with this cookie creation!!! I can’t wait for another birthday to roll around to try these – Can celebrate just because!!!

  7. Ooh this is genius! I’d never tried using birthday cake Oreos in cookies before, but it sounds spectacular! Now I kinda want to try birthday cake Oreo-inception cookies! haha
