I love to incorporate Oreos into my recipes, like with my cookies and cream cinnamon rollsOreo cookie cake, and now these Oreo chocolate chip cookies! 

When I first tested this recipe, I just incorporated Oreo crumbs into the dough but I wanted them to have a deeper Oreo flavor, which is something other recipes don’t have.

The second time I tested them I stuffed the center with a gooey Oreo cookie filling (similar to my chocolate-stuffed cookies) and they turned out perfect!

why you’ll love this recipe

  • Chewy cookies: These are the best chocolate chip cookies because they are super soft with a chewy center and crispy edges.
  • Gooey center: The cookie dough balls are stuffed with a melty chocolate Oreo filling that creates a rich gooey center. They are a variation of my Oreo cheesecake cookies!
  • Oreo cookie crumbs: These are classic chocolate chip cookies loaded with Oreo crumbs, chocolate chips, and an Oreo cookie center, with chunks of Oreos baked on top.

ingredient notes & substitutions

ingredients needed to make chocolate chip oreo cookies.

Oreo cookies: You can use any of your favorite chocolate sandwich cookie brands or any other flavored Oreo! I just don’t recommend using the double-stuffed kind.

Dark chocolate chips: You can use either dark chocolate chips or semisweet chocolate chips depending on your preference. You can also use chopped chocolate, chocolate chunks, or a combination!

Light brown sugar: You can use dark brown sugar if needed, it will make the cookies a bit darker and chewier.

Full ingredient measurements and instructions can be found in the recipe card below!

Step 7: Scoop! Scoop the dough into two-tablespoon balls onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.

Then roll each ball in your hands to make it perfectly round.

Step 8: Stuff the cookies. Then flatten the dough ball between your palms. Place one of the filling portions into the center and form the dough around it to seal it in.

Press the top of the dough ball into a bowl of Oreo pieces and chocolate chips to cover the top (if desired).

Chill in the freezer for at least 2-3 hours, overnight is best!

Step 9: Bake! Bake the Oreo-stuffed chocolate chip cookies spaced at least two inches apart on the middle rack of the oven for 11-13 minutes, or until the edges are a light golden brown.

If the middle is still a little raised after baking, use the back of a measuring cup to gently flatten it. Allow them to cool completely on a wire rack then enjoy!

expert baking tips

  • Use a kitchen scale. Baking with a scale is much more accurate than cup measurements. To convert this recipe, click the “metric” button next to the ingredients title on the recipe card. If you do not have a scale, use a spoon to fluff the flour first, then spoon it into your measuring cup.
  • Use room temperature ingredients: Using room temperature ingredients creates a smooth, fully blended cookie dough that will result in a uniform texture and even baking.
  • Process the Oreos into fine crumbs. This is especially important for the filling, otherwise, it won’t stick together well and will make it messy to portion.
  • Scoot the cookies after baking. For perfect cookies, use a round cookie cutter to scoot the edges in after baking and make them perfectly round.

storage & freezing

Store the baked cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for 2-3 days. You can warm them in the microwave for 10-20 seconds for that fresh-out-of-the-oven taste!

To freeze, place the finished stuffed cookies on a tray and allow them to freeze completely. Then transfer them to a freezer bag or airtight container. They can be baked straight from the freezer as needed and will stay fresh for 2-3 months.

recipe faqs

Can I use any kind of Oreo flavor for this recipe?

Yes! I recommend regular Oreos only and not the double-stuffed kind.

Is there anything else I can add to the cookie dough?

While I don’t recommend adding too much extra, you can replace half of the chocolate chips with white chocolate chips for more of a cookie-and-cream flavor!

Can I use a large cookie scoop instead?

You definitely can, although the cookies will need longer to bake in the oven.

Why is there an extra egg yolk? Can I leave it out?

Extra egg yolks are used in cookies to give them a chewier texture. I don’t recommend leaving it out otherwise the dough will be too dry.

Can I make chocolate chip oreo cookie dough ahead of time?

Absolutely! After the cookie dough is stuffed and assembled, it can be stored in the freezer until ready to use!

  • Scoop into two tablespoon-sized dough balls. Roll each ball between your hands until it's round, then flatten it between your palms.
