How to Make Chocolate Oreo Cookies
The dough for these Oreo chunk cookies comes together in minutes and can be baked right away.
Step 1. Combine the wet ingredients. In a large mixing bowl beat the butter and sugars until creamy. Add the egg and extract and mix again.
Step 2. Add the dry ingredients. Mix in the flour, salt, baking powder, and black cocoa powder until a soft dough forms.
Step 3. Gently stir in the mix-ins. Add chopped Oreos and white chocolate chips to the bowl and stir very gently.
Step 4. Scoop and bake. Use a 3 tablespoon cookie scoop to make 12 large dough balls. Place on a sheet pan lined with parchment or a Silpat and add more chips to the top before baking. Remove and let cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes.
On the Counter - Store the baked cookies in a tightly sealed container once they have cooled completely.
In the Freezer - Baked cookies can also be made ahead of time and frozen for later. Place cookies in individual baggies or in between layers of parchment paper in larger bags or containers. Keep for 1-2 months in the freezer.
Tips and Tricks
- Feel free to use your favorite chocolate chips in place of the white chips. These cookies would be great with milk chocolate, semi sweet chocolate, or dark chocolate.
- You can use Hershey's special dark cocoa in place of the black cocoa. I don't recommend using regular cocoa in this particular cookie recipe because it will give the cookie a different flavor.
- Add extra white chips to the tops of the cookies before and after baking for the best bakery look.
- These white chocolate Oreo cookies do bake up extra thick and puffy because of all the extra mix-ins. If you want a thinner cookie, press the dough balls down slightly before baking.
- For bakery looking cookies, use a large round cookie cutter. As soon as the cookies come out of the oven, place it around the cookie without cutting anything off. Use a swirling motion to mold the hot cookie into a perfect circle.
- Warm day old cookies in the microwave for 10-15 seconds for that fresh from the oven taste.
Fun Cookie Fact: Oreo cookies are the world's #1 top selling cookie. They are sold in over 100 countries, and over 450 billion cookies have been sold since the company started in 1912.
Oreo cookies get their signature dark color from black cocoa powder. The cocoa beans are soaked in a solution that removes the acidity and smooths out the flavor. As a result, the beans are also darkened which gives the cocoa powder its black look.
Regular cocoa powder comes from roasted and ground cocoa beans. Baked goods will have a light brown color after baking.
Dutch processed cocoa powder has the acidity from the beans removed during a soaking process before roasting and grinding. The powder that comes from these beans is much darker color.
Always use the type of cocoa powder that a recipe calls for. Using the wrong type of cocoa powder can affect the end result of your baked goods.
No, you can leave the cream filling in the cookies. Just roughly chop the whole cookie with a large knife.
These cookies are meant to bake up thick and puffy. If you want a flatter cookie, slightly press the dough ball down with the palm of your hand before baking.
