Oreos + Chocolate Chip Cookies = Dirty Chocolate Chip Cookies!

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?

What Makes These Cookies Dirty?

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 chocolate pudding, the Oreo “dirt”, and gummy worms?

Well I chopped up some Oreos and added those to the cookie dough, THEN I rolled the dough in crushed cookies…giving them a kind of “dirty” look!

Instructions:

  1. Chop 12 Oreo cookies and set aside. You will add these to your cookie dough. Reserve the remaining 12.
  2. In your mixer beat the butter and both sugars together, and then add in the eggs, vanilla, baking soda and salt and mix for 1 more minute.
  3. Next add the flour, and then the chocolate chips and chopped Oreos.
  4. Chill your dough for 2 hours, or up to 2 days.
  5. When you’re ready to bake preheat your oven and line your baking sheets with parchment. Remove your cookie dough from the fridge to take the chill off, and make the dough easier to scoop out.
  6. 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.
  7. Using a medium cookie scoop portion the dough out and roll it into balls. Then roll each ball into the Oreo crumbs.
  8. Place them on your baking sheet and bake for 9-ish minutes!

Tips:

  • Make sure to let the dough chill. This is important so the dough can be easily rolled into balls.
  • Deconstructing the Oreos is hard…ALL THE CREAM!! But the cookies don’t really turn out as well if you don’t remove it. I know they sell boxes of Oreo crumbs, so you can even buy those if throwing the cream away is too hard!
  • To make sure that the cookie crumbs are finely ground, I recommend using a food processor or blender. You want them to be like dust, so they easily stick to your cookie dough.

Dirty Chocolate Chip Cookies...these are super soft chocolate chip cookies loaded with Oreo bits ROLLED in Oreo dust! LOVE these!

How To Store Cookies:

  • For best freshness store these airtight at room temperature for up to 3 days.
  • You can also freeze these after they’re baked airtight for up to 30 days.

If you would like to freeze the dough and bake them later head over to my post on How To Freeze Cookie Dough for all the tips and tricks! This dough will freeze perfectly after you roll them into balls!

Hi! I’m Shelly and I’m an addict. Of the buttercream sort. I started this site a few years ago as a way to justify my sugary, buttery obsession with desserts. It has worked out well for me so far, because as it turns out you guys all love sugary, buttery desserts too! It feels good to know you're not alone, doesn’t it?

My cookies spread like pancake despite keeping them in the refrigerator overnight

I made these cookies yesterday. They are really good. Next time I’ll skip the rolling the dough in the crumbs. If you don’t want to scrape the cream off, just scraped the cream from one half to the other half. Then when when you have to halves with cream, put those to together and you have a double stuff Oreo.

This recipe sounds fantastic! I bet Nabisco’s Famous Wafers would work for the “dirt”. While your at it try their icebox cake recipe (wafers and whipped cream, overnight in the fridge). Distant cousin of the Oreo! Can’t wait to try these cookies.

5 stars! I loved this recipe!! Take note it says to chill, I didn’t want to wait so I froze the batter for about 20-30 and they turned out fine, perhaps a pinch flatter than they would have. I added extra chocolate chips and extra Oreos!

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?

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

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.

Would these stay for a day or so in advance in an airtight container?

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.

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. 🙂

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!

I am thinking you could melt the filling to drizzle over the cookie? Would that be too sweet?

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!

These look so good! Maybe use an Oreo pie crust to blend up instead?

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