Oreo + Chocolate Chip Cookie Mashup

Updated: Oct 4

The two best cookies rolled into one


Jump to Recipe


When we lived in Texas, we were introduced to this brand of ice cream called Blue Bell. Locals raved about it and for good reason. They always had delicious flavors and one of my all-time favorites was the Cookie Two Step. Tons of cookies and cream chunks and chocolate chip cookie dough pieces.


There are lots of things about that I miss about Texas, but Blue Bell ice cream has got to be really near the top. So, to curb my longing, I set out to make a cookie that brought back all the good memories (homemade ice cream to come soon).

These cookies took a few times to get just right. I wanted the overall cookie to be part cookies-and-cream and part chocolate chip. I didn't want it to just be a chocolate chip cookie with @oreo chunks through out. But getting two different doughs to marry together was a bit challenging. However the end result just happens to be my new favorite one. The @oreo cookie is soft and fudgy and the chocolate chip just melts in your mouth--truly the best of both worlds.


Cookie Tips:

- The butter content, I found, should be equal parts in both batters, and it works best with soft butter (just a bit softer than room temperature).

- I liked adding an extra yolk to the batters to aid in the fudginess of the texture.

-The cookies-and-cream batter contains @oreo cookies; take the cream out and add to the butter, then take the cookies ground finely and add them to the dry ingredients. This really helped to obtain that classic taste we all know and love.


So, lets get to the recipe, shall we?

Oreo Cookie Dough:

1 1/3 c Oreo cookies (sans the filling) ground finely

1/4 c cocoa powder

3/4 c flour

1/2 tsp baking soda

1 tsp salt


Oreo filling

1/4 c butter

melted together


1/2 c granulated sugar

3/4 c brown sugar

1 egg


Start by measuring out whole @Oreo cookies (1 1/3 c total). Separate the cookies from the cream and grind the cookies up well. Combine the butter with the cream filling in a large bowl, melt it, and set aside.


To a medium bowl, mix together the flour, cocoa powder, salt, baking soda, and crushed cookies. Set aside and grab the butter and cream mixture. To that add in the granulated sugar and brown sugar. Cream together till smooth and well combined. Add in the egg and cream again.


Next, mix in the dry ingredients--I like to do this with a spatula or wooden spoon but you can mix it in with a hand mixer, just be sure not to overmix. Stop when batter comes together and is smooth. Set dough in the fridge to chill while you make the chocolate chip cookies


Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough:

1/2 c butter soft room temp

3/4 c brown sugar

1/2 c granulated sugar

1 egg

1egg yolk

1 tsp vanilla

1 1/2 c flour

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

1 tsp salt

3/4 c semi-sweet chocolate chips or milk chocolate


In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugars. Then add in the egg, egg yolk, and vanilla. Cream until the batter turns a pale color (about 3 minutes). Scrape down sides, then add in the dry ingredients directly to the bowl. Again, I like to use a rubber spatula at this point, but feel free to use a hand mixer being sure not to overmix. Next, add in the chocolate chips and mix until well combined.


Preheat oven to 350°F

Now grab your @oreo cookie dough from the fridge and scoop out 1 1/2 oz. of dough. Do the same for the chocolate chip cookie dough. Separate both doughs into two parts (eyeball it, this does not have to be perfect). You should now have two @oreo dough balls and two chocolate chip cookie dough balls. Alternate the dough balls and then roll them all together creating a marbled effect. In total, this is a 3 oz. cookie. Repeat until all the dough is used up--approximately 1 1/2 dozen cookies.


Chill formed dough balls for 30 minutes. Then place 6 cookies on a cookie sheet and bake at 350°F for 10-12 minutes. I like to shape my cookies with a bowl when they come out of the oven to make them perfectly round. Then eat and enjoy. Trust me, you're going to love these!
