Giant Double Chocolate Chip Oreo Cookies

Pin It Now!

I bought a huge box of oreo cookies from Sam's Club to make the crust for the no bake nutella oreo cheesecakes, because it is cheaper to get a huge box at Sam's then a small one at the store. Of course, I only needed about two sleeves out of the 10 in the box, so I have had these haunting my cupboard for a while, begging to be used.  In dire need of making some chocolate chip cookies, I thought maybe I would use some up and through them in the cookie dough.  THEN I remembered I had white chocolate chips from a plan to make white chocolate macadamia nut cookies that never happened (macadamia nuts are EXPENSIVE!), so I thought I would throw those in to continue with the black and white theme.  And of course, who doesn't like a cookie the size of your hand?? It was a HUGE success!

These are chewy, chocolatey, sweet, a little savory, and just to die for.  Even my non-chocolate chip cookie loving husband has dived into the freezer several times since me making these last night.  They are bad news, and I will inevitably be 5-10 pounds heavier when they are finally gone.  Heck, even my 3 year old has been going around since yesterday going "Mommy, these are the best cookies you ever made..."  Best compliment ever :)

GIANT DOUBLE CHOCOLATE CHIP OREO COOKIES

Makes between 14-16 large (5-6") cookies

Ingredients:

  • 2 sticks of butter (1 cup), softened
  • 1 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 Tbs. vanilla extract
  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 3/4 tsp. salt
  • 3/4 tsp. baking soda
  • 3 oz. (1/2 cup) semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 3 oz. (1/2 cup) white chocolate chips
  • 13 oreo cookies, broken into quarters or fifths
Directions:
  1. Preheat oven to 365 degrees F.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl combine brown sugar, granulated sugar, and butter and cream together with a hand mixer until well combined.
  3. Add eggs and vanilla and mix thoroughly.
  4. Add flour, salt, and baking soda and mix well.
  5. Pour in chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, and combine by hand or with mixer.  Add in oreo pieces and gently fold in until evenly distributed.
  6. Using a 1/4 cup measuring cup, fill completely with dough and drop onto prepared pan, about 5 cookies per sheet, they get big.  Using the bottom of the measuring cup, press down the dough to flatten the center to about 1/2 inch for even cooking.
  7. Bake for 12-14 minutes until they start to brown on the edges.  They will still look a bit light in the center, but will darken and firm up when they cool.

  1. Lindsay, why must you do this to me?! I JUST got rid of the rest of the oreos in my house - I made some oreo truffles with about 15 stale oreos. But now this! Clearly I'll have to go out and buy some oreos now. But I guess this is a great excuse to buy winter themed oreos? Haha.
