I never get tired of a chocolate chip cookie variation. Nope, never. And I feel like since we’re friends, you might feel the same way.

Also, is it even a thing to be like, “no more chocolate chip cookie please?”

Yeah, I didn’t think so. And really what better way to make a chocolate chip better than add Oreos?

These super fun cookies are very very easy. I made them with the same idea of that old fashioned Dirt Cake in mind…you know the one with the  pudding and the Oreo dirt and gummy worms?

I’m not a huge fan of gummy worms, and I also don’t love pudding…(who even AM I?) but I do love a cookie and thought making Dirty Chocolate Chip cookies might be a fun alternative.

It was a good idea.

The hardest part is letting the cookie dough chill…which is a pretty necessary step in the process so the dough can be easily rolled into balls. I am sure you CAN do it without chilling, but the dough might be a bit sticky, so just stick to the rules.

Another part that I felt super guilty about was deconstructing the Oreo Cookies…

You have to scrape the filling out of some of the cookies to make the dust. It was a sad sad day. Originally I thought I would just eat all the cream by itself…you know not to waste it…

But who knew that the cream without the cookie isn’t that great? I feel like I have been living a lie.

When you’ve gotten over all the cream lies make your dough, chill your dough and roll your dough into balls.

Then pulverize the sad, cream-less Oreos into dust…

I used my blender to do this..you just want it to be very fine.

Next roll the balls into the dust…

Dirty Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • Author: Cookies & Cups
  • Yield: 30 cookies 1x

Ingredients

  • 24 Oreo cookies, divided
  • 1 cup butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 cups chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Coarsely chop 12 Oreo cookies and set aside. Reserve the remaining 12 for later use.
  2. In the bowl of your stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment beat the butter and both sugars together for 2 minutes. Add in the eggs, vanilla, baking soda and salt and mix for an additional minute, scraping the sides of the bowl as necessary.
  3. Turn the mixer to low and add in the flour, mixing until just combined.
  4. Mix in the chocolate chips and coarsely chopped Oreo cookies.
  5. Chill the dough for 2 hours or overnight.
  6. When you’re ready to bake the cookies preheat the oven to 350°F/175°C. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  7. Separate the remaining Oreo cookies and scrape the cream filling from the cookie and discard. Place only the cookies in a food processor or blender and blend until they are a fine crumb. Place the cookie crumbs in a shallow bowl and set aside.
  8. Remove the cookie dough from the refrigerator and roll the dough into 2 tablespoon sized balls.
  9. Next roll each cookie dough ball into the Oreo dust.
  10. Place the cookie dough balls on the baking sheet 2 inches apart.
  11. Bake cookies 10-12 minutes until the edges are lightly golden.

  1. Shelly, I agree that there can never be too many variations on the chocolate chip cookie! I have a package of Oreos in my pantry that have been looking for an excuse to be opened; these cookies might just be that excuse! Thanks for the recipe!

  2. Sarah

    This is such a good idea!! What about using vanilla oreos or graham crackers with other types of cookies for other variations?

    My baby (she’s 13, so, you know, it’s relative!) is thinking these cookies sound good, as do I. But, she LOVES gummy worms, and likes pudding, so we will probably be making the Dirt Cake this weekend, but since we will be nuding up Oreo’s anyway, will probably need to make these cookies, too!

  4. Shelly, I never get tired of playing around with chocolate chip cookie recipes either! Sometimes, you’ve just gotta mix it up! I love what you did here, these look really fun (and insanely delicious!) Yum!

    You could take the left over cookies and courseley chop them up. Put them into cake batter and either make cupcakes or cake. Take the left over Oreo filling and incorporate it into frosting for the cakes. Use any remaining cookie dust to top the frosting.
    No wasting of the Oreo center. 🙂

    What if the Oreo cream discs went into the cookie dough instead of going to waste? Could cut the sugar a bit to compensate for the sweetness of the cream.

  7. Liz

    You know you can buy Oreo cookie crumbs already crushed. I buy them for making crust, similar to graham cracker crust. Check the baking aisle of your store.

    I have made cookies like this before and instead of taking the cream out just blended then whole. It will still turn to fine dust. Then I didn’t have to worry about the extra hassle of getting the cream out and trying to find a way to use it

    Y’know, there are chocolate wafer cookies in your ice cream toppings department that have no cream in the middle…mostly used to make a chocolate cookie crust for pies and such…Why waste a perfectly good oreo?
