We were over at a friend’s house the other day, and someone offered my 3-year-old daughter Valentine a glass of lemonade. She took a sip, then looked up at me with a shrug and said, “It’s good. But it’s not fresh.”

ExCUSE me, child??

I seriously don’t know where this kid got her hoity toity attitude from. Certainly not from me. I am definitely not a foodie, despite the food blog you see here. Like, if I knew any French people, they might hate me and my powdered lemonade ways.

Maybe she’s not a total snob. Maybe it’s just that she and my son Truman are both total weirdos who will eat lemons and limes like they are oranges. Whenever I serve sliced limes as a garnish for tacos, they ask to eat them before they’ve even had any real food. See, weirdos. But I guess it does explain her strange knowledge about what fresh lemon tastes like?!

Is everybody excited for the weekend? Mine is starting off with a bang: I have to get a filling at the dentist. I didn’t even know that dentists worked on weekends, but somehow it just makes it hurt even more that I have to get Novocain’d on a Saturday.

But don’t think about the dentist. Think about these amazing Cookies and Cream cookies instead!

How to make Cookies and Cream Cookies

These cookies are the definition of over the top. I’m in love. We are taking a simple chocolate chip cookie recipe and folding in a bunch of Oreos, dark chocolate chips, and chopped up Hershey’s Cookies and Cream bars. (Have you ever had one of those? Sooo good.)

I knew that I wanted to chop Oreos into a fine crumb in a food processor and incorporate it into the dough, so the first time I made these that’s what I did. The cookies tasted amazing, but I didn’t love the color of the cookies. As could be expected, they turn the dough into this murky grey color. And like I said, they tasted great, but since we all eat with our eyes first, I decided to try a different strategy.

What I ended up doing was splitting the dough in half and adding the fine crumbs to just half the dough. Then when I shaped the cookies I marbled both types of dough together to create little hybrid cookies.

If this sounds like an annoying step to you, I get it. Sometimes you just need cookies NOW and don’t want the fuss. No problem! Just mix it all together in one bowl and you are good to go. See notes.

I like to top each cookie with a square of Cookies and Cream candy!

These cookies spread a lot. There are two ways to achieve a thicker cookie: you can either chill the dough for a little while before baking, or you can do the spoon trick. This just means using two spoons to push the edges of the cookie in toward the center RIGHT when it comes out of the oven. This helps make them super thick and chewy in the middle! You can see more pictures of the spoon trick on this post.

These cookies are my new favorite thing to make lately! No one can say no to Oreos, especially when they are incorporated into other desserts. Who can say no to a cookie in a cookie?

These Chewy Cookies and Cream Cookies are over the top! They are chocolate chip cookies that are loaded with chopped Oreos, dark chocolate, Hershey's Cookies and Cream candy bars, plus they have crushed Oreos mixed into the dough. They are soft, thick, chewy, and totally irresistible!


  • 1 cup butter, softened (2 sticks)
  • 1 & 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 & 1/2 cups all purpose flour, spooned and leveled
  • 1 & 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 12 Oreos, pulsed into a fine crumb
  • another 12 Oreos, quartered
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips, chopped
  • 4 Hershey's Cookies and Cream candy bars, divided
  • more chocolate chips, candy bars, or chopped Oreos, to garnish


  • Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone mats. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
  • In a large bowl or stand mixer, beat 1 cup (2 sticks) butter until it is smooth and creamy, scraping the sides and bottom of the bowl.
  • Add 1 and 1/2 cups granulated sugar and beat for about 2 minutes until light and fluffy, remembering to scrape the sides and bottom with a spatula.
  • Add 1 teaspoon vanilla extract and 2 eggs. Beat well until combined.
  • Add 2 and 1/2 cups flour but do not mix in. Add 1 and 1/2 teaspoons baking soda and 1 teaspoon kosher salt on top of the flour, and stir it into the flour. Say no to baking soda clumps!
  • Beat the flour in until all the white streaks are gone. Scrape the sides and bottom and make sure it’s all incorporated, but do not over mix. Stop as soon as the flour is mixed in.
  • Take half the dough out and add it to a second large bowl. This step is totally optional, see notes. *
  • In a food processor or blender, pulse 12 Oreos until they have been chopped into a very fine crumb. Add all of this to the original bowl that you mixed the dough in. Beat the Oreo crumbs into the dough until completely incorporated, making sure to scrape the bottom. Don’t over mix.
  • Use a sharp knife to chop 12 more Oreos into quarters. Add all of the quartered Oreos to the white dough in the second bowl.
  • Use a knife to chop 1 cup of dark chocolate chips into smaller pieces. You can leave them as is, I prefer smaller pieces of chocolate but that’s just me. (You can also chop up a 6 ounce bar of dark chocolate.) Add half the dark chocolate to each bowl.
  • Use the knife to chop 2 bars of Hershey’s Cookies and Cream bars into chunks. Add half of the chopped candy to each bowl.
  • Use a spatula to mix the dark and white chocolate into the darker dough.
  • Use a spatula to mix the chopped Oreos, dark chocolate, and white chocolate into the light colored dough.
  • Add the contents of one bowl into the other, but don’t mix them.
  • Use a 2 inch cookie scoop to shape the dough. Scrape up a little bit of the light colored dough and a little bit of the darker dough so they are marbled together. Place each cookie dough ball on the lined cookie sheet, leaving at least 2 inches between each cookie. These cookies will spread quite a bit in the oven. I put 6 on a baking sheet. I think the cookies turn out prettiest when the light colored dough is on top.
  • Top each cookie with a Hershey’s Cookies and Cream square (or rectangle, I suppose). You don’t need to press it down, just place it on top and make sure it’s sticking to the dough.
  • Bake the cookies for 10-12 minutes until they are very lightly golden on the edges (and then proceed very quickly with step 18.) You can pull them out when they are still a little shiny on top, but the shiny (wet) part should be no bigger than a quarter.
  • This is very important! And it must be done within 60 seconds of pulling these out of the oven. You will see the cookies and think to yourself, Karen is a liar, these cookies are flat and huge and look nothing like the picture. But here’s where the magic happens. Grab two regular spoons and use them to shove the edges of the cookie in toward the center. Be aggressive and work quickly, you have 30-60 seconds before the edges of the cookies start to crisp and harden. See photo examples of this technique on this recipe for 30 Minute Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies.
  • At this point you can add even more toppings to your cookie while they are still warm if you like: additional chocolate chips, chopped white chocolate, and sprinkles of chopped Oreo.
  • Remove to a wire cooling rack to cool completely. But definitely eat at least one of them warm, with a big glass of milk!


*Separating the dough is completely optional and is meant to make the cookies look prettier. If you want, add all the mix-ins to the dough, starting with the 12 Oreos chopped to a fine crumb. Beat it into the dough until completely incorporated, making sure to scrape the bottom. Add 12 quartered Oreos, 1 cup dark chocolate chips, and 2 chopped cookies and cream bars. Stir it all up and shape the cookies into 2 inch balls, and bake as directed. They will taste great! Your cookies will be a uniform dark gray color. If you are not taking pictures to post on the internet, selling these at a bake sale, or baking these for your hopeful future husband, then you can safely skip splitting the dough.

  1. My daughter is going to flip out when she sees these cookies! She loves cookies and cream candy bars, especially the cookies and cream Hershey’s Drops. Do you have to chill this dough?

    1. It’s up to you Michelle! You can either chill the dough or you can use the “spoon trick”: right after the cookies come out of the oven, use two spoons to push the edges of the cookie in toward the center. This makes the cookies super thick and chewy, even without chilling. I hope your daughter loves them, come back and tell us how they turn out!

  2. These will definitely be my go to recipe! Even my husband (who typically doesn’t like cookies) was a fan! The batter yields quite a lot which is great, but we wouldn’t be able to finish that ourselves so I froze about half the batter (pre shaped). I just baked my frozen cookies but they didn’t spread like the original batch. 

    1. I’m so glad it was a hit Mylene! I’m glad we’ve made a convert of your husband ;) Thanks for reviewing!

  3. These cookies are amazing!!! I made them last night and I loved every bite. A lot of sweetness, gooeyness, and goodness! I was able to make 16 cookies and still have half the batter left. How long can I keep the leftover batter in the fridge? Is the batter freezable? 

    1. Hi TJ! So glad you loved the cookies! You can keep the batter in the fridge for 2-3 days before it starts drying out too much. The Oreos might start to soften, fyi. And yes, you can totally freeze the dough! I like to shape the cookies, then place in a ziplock and freeze. I think I have some in my freezer right now! I should bust them out!

  4. Karen, you seriously got me with these cookies!  I saw them a couple days ago..and I keep coming back to your blog to take a closer look. They. Look. Amazingly.  Delicious!!!!! That gooey cookies and cream melted all into that cookie dough, and the dark chips….I could just lick the screen….I have everything except the Hershey Cookies and Cream Bars…which tomorrow, I will get and make these babies,…for hubby,…Father’s Day,….with those seared Rib-Eyes and omg mashed potatoes! Hallelujah!!
    Keep’em comin;)

  5. OH MY GOODNESS GRACIOUS KAREN… These look UNREAL!!! Oreos, cookies ‘n cream candy bars, AND dark chocolate chips??? I think I’ve died and gone to heaven! You are a cookie magician!! (And these photos are incredible! Those melty chocolate bits are making me SO tempted to go straight into my kitchen and bake a batch! ;) )

    When I was little, we made powdered lemonade too! I loved putting a big scoop in the bottom of my glass and pretending to stir it in… Where I’d swirl the spoon around *just above* the powdered mix. So I ended up drinking water with a faint taste of lemon… And then getting a BIG sugary scoop I could spoon into my mouth from the bottom of the glass. It was the best! (Don’t tell my mom!! ;) )

    PS Thanks for the cookie shoutout!! You’re just the sweetest!! ♡

    1. Oh my gosh Amy I’m dying!!! I love that you didn’t mix in the lemonade powder!!! Hahahah!!!!! Seriously though that’s a really good idea. lol. And thank you for the sweet comments about my photos! Oreos forever amiright?? <3
