Chocolate Chip Cookies and Cream Cookies - easy cookies filled with chocolate chips and Oreo cookies

 For some reason this week I am obsessed with cookies.

I really think it is because last week we were on vacation, and I ate anything and everything I wanted.  It was fun, for a while.  Unfortunately, eating like that isn’t great for summer clothes wearing.  I know summer is coming in just a few short months.  Time to back off the sweets again.

Drinking smoothies + eating heathy dinners = cookie dreams!

You would not believe how many new combos I have thought through…just in one day!  It must be the sugar withdrawals hitting me big time.  Maybe just one little bite wouldn’t hurt…

I had to giggle at my daughter last night.  My husband and I were discussing our food intake for the day, and he was telling me that I had plenty of room to have a protein bar if I wanted.  I must have been grumbling under my breath about this said healthy bar as I left the room, because all of a sudden I  heard laughing in the living room.

Apparently my daughter was informing my hubby that “Mommy, doesn’t want that kind of bar…she wants gooey bars.”  Man, does she know me or what!!!

Of course, now I have tons of ideas running through my head for gooey bars too…

These are one of my daughter’s favorite cookies.  Of course, anything cookies and cream related gets her vote.  Cookies get made at least once a week around here.  Then I have to really stay out of the kitchen because those cookies tease me.  I think they know that I am trying to cut back on sugar!

Cookies made from cake mixes are starting to become regulars around here.  I hope you don’t mind a few more variations that I’m thinking through.

It is a fun trick to turn a cake mix into cookies.  I like to add a little bit of cream cheese.  It makes the cookies so soft and incredible tasting.  Feel free to use your favorite mix ins.  Today we went with Oreo cookie chunks and two kinds of chocolate chips.  There is no right or wrong combo when it comes to these cookies.

Make sure you do not over bake them.  They will look under done when the timer goes off!  Trust me and take the pan out of the oven.  The cookies will continue to bake on the hot baking sheet!  Then when they cool completely, they will be set up and ready to eat.  Of course, I like to eat them warm and gooey!

I promise you these cookies will not last long enough to tempt you during the day.  My family gobbles them up in no time at all!

    Not sure it was a good idea to follow your blog Jocelyn… You are seriously bad for my waistline!! I made a batch of these cookies today and they are fabulous! Thanks for the new ideas!

    These seem delicious. What is the texture of the cooled cookie? Is it like a Toll House cookie or is it light like a cookie made with more egg whites? Hopefully I’ve explained the question well enough. I’m just not a fan of a cookie that’s too airy and was wondering before I headed into the kitchen. They look great! Thank you for any advice and for sharing.

    Your recipe looks great but I was wondering what kind of cake mix you were talking about was one of those packeted Betty Crocker or Greens? And do you make them per the packets instructions or just add the dry mix?

    These cookies should be named, “The best cookie you’ll ever eat COOKIE.” Made them as directed for church and they were absolutely wonderful. Not the prettiest cookie lol but taste divine :)

    Thanks so much!

    I’ve had this recipe saved for quite some time now and I finally decided to make it on a whim — I can’t believe I didn’t do it sooner! From the first bite, I was hooked. So. Freakin. GOOD!!!
