These easy Chocolate Chip Cookies and Cream Cookies are full of chocolate chips and Oreo cookies. They are the perfect after school snack, lunch box snack, or midnight snack. You choose!
For some reason this week I am obsessed with all things 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 a Vanilla Pineapple Smoothie + eating heathy dinners = wild and crazy cookie dreams! Just saying.
You would not believe how many new combos I have thought through in just 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 Reese’s Gooey Cake Bars.” Man, does she know me or what!!!
Of course, now I have tons of ideas running through my head for more gooey bars too. Dang it!!!
These cookies and cream cookies made with a cake mix are one of my daughter’s favorite cookies. Of course, anything cookies and cream 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.
Tips on making these Chocolate Chip Cookies and Cream Cookies:
It is a fun trick to turn a cake mix into cookies. I like to add a little bit of cream cheese. Cream cheese in cookies makes them so soft and delicious.
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 easy cake mix cookies.
Make sure you do not over bake them though. They will look under done when the timer goes off! Trust me and take your cookie pan out of the oven.
The cookies will continue to bake on the hot baking sheet! Give the cookies a tap with a flat spatula after 2 minutes. 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 soft cookies will not last long enough to tempt you during the day. My family gobbles these Chocolate Chip Cookies and Cream Cookies up in no time at all!
*You can also change these cookies up for different holidays by adding colored candies and sprinkles. These Fireworks Cookies and Cream Cookies are loaded with lots of red, white, and blue fun.
