Oreo-Doodles (Oreo-crusted Chocolate Cookies)

And the thanks for naming these cookies goes to…my amazing Facebook followers!

Yesterday I was editing the photos for these fabulously delicious double chocolate cookies that were coated with crumbled Oreos.  But for the life of me, I could not figure out what to name them!  So I turned to Facebook for some help, and they immediately came to a delicious rescue.  The suggestions ranged from everything from Black Magic Cookies, to Oreo Chocolate Explosions, to Chocodoodles (a close second!), to Choreos, to Ore-OH My! Cookies, to Oreo-Fluffed Chocolate Cookies, to Rx Monday Cookies, to my favorite…”Mine”.  The list goes on, but suffice it to say, I need to remember to ask for suggestions more often.  :)

In the end, Oreo-Doodles kept resurfacing as the favorite.  So Websters, get ready, we have a new favorite cookie to add to the dictionary!

As I had hoped, these cookies turned out to be incredibly chocolicious.  I used my favorite double chocolate cookie base, and then simply dipped the dough balls in Oreo crumbs.  Ridiculously good.  I used chocolate chips in the cookies, but realized afterwards that you could also use larger crumbles of Oreos instead (inside of the cookies) if you’d like.  Either way, these are super fun, and my taste-testing friends and I gave them a big thumbs up.

Thanks again, Facebook friends!

Oreo-Doodles (Oreo-Dusted Chocolate Cookies)

Oreo-Doodles...Choco-Doodles...whatever you want to call them, these delicious double chocolate cookies dusted with crumbled Oreos are chocolicious!


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened Dutch-processed cocoa powder (or regular unsweetened cocoa powder)
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 4 ounces coarsely chopped dark or semisweet chocolate
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • 12 Oreo cookies, finely-crumbled


Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

Whisk together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl; set aside. Melt coarsely chopped chocolate with the butter in a small heatproof bowl in a double-boiler or in the microwave, stirring frequently.

Once melted, transfer chocolate mixture to the bowl of an electric stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Add sugar, eggs, and vanilla; mix on medium speed until combined. Reduce speed to low; gradually mix in flour mixture. Fold in chocolate chips.

Form batter into heaping tablespoon-fulls, then roll into balls. Roll each ball in the crumbled Oreos until covered, then place the dough balls 2 inches apart on parchment-lined baking sheets. Bake until cookies are flat and surfaces begin to crack, about 12-15 minutes. (*Do not overbake these, or they will totally dry out!*) Transfer on parchment to wire racks and let cool.

Serve immediately, or store in a sealed container for up to 3 weeks.

  16. Nancy @ gottagetbaked — January 16, 2013 @ 11:11 am (#)

    These are such gorgeous cookies. They look perfectly crispy on the edges, chewy in the middle and packed with Oreo/chocolate flavour. I’d love a giant plate of these with a tall cold glass of milk (and it’s only 9am!).

  17. Leslie — August 8, 2013 @ 7:37 am (#)

    Can I use a hand mixer instead of a stand up?

  18. Rachel {studio cuisine} — December 12, 2013 @ 6:17 pm (#)

    Just made these crusted with Peppermint Joe Joes…amazing!

  19. MaryAnne (Gastronotherapy) — December 13, 2013 @ 6:36 pm (#)

    These sound delicious! I’ve been crumbling Oreo’s over dark chocolate ice cream for a while now, so this would be a more portable version. Thanks!

  20. Laura — December 20, 2013 @ 8:11 am (#)

    Made these last night…they are amazing!! Easy, but messy, to make. Perfect for Christmas as they look like ‘lumps of coal’!

  21. Courtney — April 15, 2014 @ 4:18 pm (#)

    These look amazing!!! I need to make these – I love anything with oreo!

  22. Nancy Newton — April 27, 2014 @ 3:33 pm (#)

    Found a picture of these cookies on Pinterest and went on the website for the recipe. They are fantastic! I can’t wait to take these to my daughter who loves chocolate cookies.

    Hi! I was wondering if you could use the oreo’s cream in the middle and add it to the recipe? Like, it would have streaks of white in them?

    • Ali — July 20th, 2014 @ 10:08 am

      Oooh, I actually have no idea. The cream is shortening-based, so it might work in cookies. If you try it, let me know!

    What can we use instead of egg… In cookies..  As we are jains

    • Hayley @ Gimme Some Oven — June 28th, 2015 @ 7:45 pm

      Hi! You can always use egg replacer, or do a flax egg: For every 1 egg, combine 1 tablespoon of ground flax with 3 tablespoons of water (let it soak for about 5 minutes), use 2 1/2 tablespoons of powdered egg substitute, combined with 2 1/2 tablespoons of water. We hope that helps!
