Triple Chocolate Oreo Chunk Cookies

While the Thick and Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies are my all-time favorite, stuck-on-a-desert-island, need-them-to-survive cookie, I can’t help myself when it comes to trying all sorts of new cookie recipes. Enter these insanely sinful chocolate cookies, created by the queen of awesome cookies, Maria of Two Peas and Their Pod. She creates some of the best cookies. And these are no exception. They are thick, chewy, chocolatey, and packed full of all sorts of extra chocolate – semisweet chocolate, white chocolate, and the coup de grâce – chunks of Oreo cookies.

I can’t resist chocolate, and I surely can’t resist anything with Oreos in it. So without questions, these cookies are right up my alley. The original recipe calls for dropping the dough by tablespoons, but the other thing I can’t resist is supersized cookies. It must be in my genetic makeup that I NEED to make huge cookies. And so, I did.

Look at all that thick, chocolate, melty goodness. It’s begging for a glass of milk. And seconds.

Triple Chocolate Oreo Chunk Cookies

Yield: 18 cookies

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 8 to 10 minutes

Total Time: 25 minutes

Ingredients:

2½ cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt
¾ cup dutch processed cocoa powder
1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup light brown sugar
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup chopped white chocolate (or chips)
1 cup chopped semi-sweet chocolate (or chips)
1 cup chopped Oreo cookies

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone mat. Set aside.

2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt, and cocoa powder. Set aside.

3. With a mixer on medium speed, cream the butter and sugars together until smooth. Add the eggs, one at a time. Next, add in vanilla extract. Mix until blended well, scraping the sides of the bowl as needed.

4. Slowly add the flour mixture and mix just until the flour disappears. Stir in the chocolate and Oreos. Drop cookie dough by scant ¼ cups onto the baking sheet.

5. Bake cookies for 8-10 minutes. Don't over bake - if the cookies are set around the outside but still soft in the middle, they're ready to come out. Remove from the oven and let sit on baking sheet for 3-5 minutes. Move to a cooling rack and cool completely.

    I mixed and matched the cookie base from your Triple Chocolate Cookies with the mix-ins from this recipe…cannot.stop.eating.them! And I made them for my uncle who helped us out (he didn’t get as many as I planned!) Just started following you and LOVE it! Nice to see a hometown girl with some great recipes. I’m a doctor and mom by day, but could (and have!) bake all night. Secretly always wanted to open my own cookie bakery.

    Question: I so want to make these cookies, I have all of the ingredients except for the dutch processed cocoa. I have looked everywhere and cannot find it. Do I have to make adjustments to the recipe if I used something like Hersheys Dark Chocolate Cocoa powder?

    Reply

    • Michelle on September 7th, 2011 at 1:35 pm

      Hi Linda, No you can go ahead and use the Hersheys. Dutch process cocoa tends to lend a much richer flavor than typical cocoa powder. If you’d like to use it in the future, you can usually find it at Williams Sonoma, or order it online from Amazon, Penzeys or King Arthur Flour.

    • Michelle on June 1st, 2012 at 5:51 pm

      Hi Rebecca, You could, you’ll just get more of an Oreo flavor, rather the actual chunks of Oreo cookies.

    • Michelle on June 4th, 2012 at 9:50 pm

      Hi Charla, If you haven’t made any ingredient or technique substitutions, it sounds like it could be an issue with oven temperature or over-mixing the dough. I’d make sure that the oven is the correct temperature (I highly recommend an oven thermometer), and that you’re not beating the dough too much.

      Reply

      • Charla on June 4th, 2012 at 10:33 pm

        Thanks for the advice. They definitely tasted delish, so I’m going to have to try them again.

    Will substituting dark brown sugar for light brown sugar do anything to alter the way the cookies turn out?

    Hi…I just recently discovered your blog and love it! I made these cookies yesterday, and they were sensational! I made them for my daughter who is a huge chocolate lover (like me), but even my son who’s not a chocolate fan couldn’t get enough of them. They are exactly as you described- thick, chewy, chocolatey… and a big winner with us!

    Batch in progress. Noticed that they’re not flattening out as much, and read above comments. I may have over mixed or might be a slightly larger cookie scoop Taste is awesome. Oven is a brand new Electrolux and I have found that it’s baking a little slower than the oven it replaced, but a lot more evenly. Thinking of putting the next tray in on convection setting. Awesome awesome cookie!
