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
- 2½ cups (312.5 g) all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- ¼ teaspoon (0.25 teaspoon) salt
- ¾ cup (64.5 g) dutch processed cocoa powder
- 1 cup (227 g) unsalted butter, at room temperature
- 1 cup (200 g) granulated sugar
- 1 cup (220 g) light brown sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 cup (132 g) chopped white chocolate, or chips
- 1 cup (175 g) chopped semi-sweet chocolate, or chips
- 1 cup (160 g) chopped Oreo cookies
- 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.
Did you make this recipe?
Leave a review below, then snap a picture and tag @thebrowneyedbaker on Instagram so I can see it!
I’m only looking at this website for cookie recipes from now on. No more Betty Crocker or anything. These recipes here are always consistent and impossible to mess up if you stick to the directions.
These cookies were super rich and perfect if you’re
A chocoholic. Which I am. I froze dough balls too- and they turned out perfect from the freezer.
Tried these this afternoon and they turned out perfect!! The chocolate overload was perfect for my brother and me, who are hardcore chocolate lovers.
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!
Is brown sugar loose or packed?
Hi Maureen, Always packed.
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!
Hi, I was just wondering if I could make these in advance, bake them and then freeze them? Would they go wet when I defrost them? Thanks in advance :)
Hi Li-Anne, Yes, you could definitely freeze these cookies after you bake them!
Will substituting dark brown sugar for light brown sugar do anything to alter the way the cookies turn out?
Hi Amber, Not at all, they’ll just be a little sweeter!
i made these this past weekend…. YUM! I’m not a chocolate lover but my boyfriends daughter is and i knew this would be the ticket to a happy 11 year old girl. She thought they were amazing and i did too. i will be making these many more times.
Hi! I’ve tried making these delicious a couple of times. They taste delicious!However, mine did not flatten out like yours and were actually pretty dry after they cooled. Any idea what I could be doing wrong?
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.
Thanks for the advice. They definitely tasted delish, so I’m going to have to try them again.
I want to make these, but i only have oreo cookie crumbs. I crushed them one time for another recipe, and I still have some. Can I use these?
Hi Rebecca, You could, you’ll just get more of an Oreo flavor, rather the actual chunks of Oreo cookies.
Made these last night and there’s none left now. No wonder, they are sooo YUM!
Just took the last batch out of my oven. Bake sale tomorrow at son’s school. What kid (or BIG kid) doesn’t like chocolate?? I had one followed by a huge glass of milk! YUM! Thanks again for another sucessful recipe!
Preheating the oven! #yum
Made these cooks and they turned out amazingly delicious! Can’t wait to make them again!
Such a lleovy job telling their story… beautiful. I love the closeness you captured between all the family and friends.
Hi! I made these delicious cookies the other night. SO GOOD! However, mine did not flatten out like yours and were actually pretty dry after they cooled. Any idea what I could have done wrong?
I love that these cookies have all sorts of mix-ins. I love cookies full of chocolate chips and cookie bits!
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?
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, Thanks so much for your reply. In three weeks we are hosting an engagement party for our daughter and her fiance. There will be a sweets table and I know these cookies will be on that table!
I made this recipe this weekend and I now believe this is my new favorite cookie! Next time I’ll try adding some type of nut and then I’ll be in heaven! Thanks for posting this recipe.
Interesting idea for using Oreos or similar cookies. Thank you for sharing.
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.
Double chocolate-y goodness! Now where’s my milk? LOL. Your pictures are amazing btw. :)
Wow!! These look great! I have a friend who would go crazy for these! Better hide this from her haha
Store bought….oreos are my all time favorite cookies, so this is a terrific cookie! Thanks!
So BUZZ worthy!!
I love Oreos! A cookie in a cookie is even better!
SINFUL!! Cannot wait to try them!
These look delicious! :D Totally buzzed and bookmarked.
I madethese last night and my co-workers are very happy with me today as a result of it! I used double-stuffed oreos for good measure. I just started following your blog and have already tried a few recipes – we have very similar tastes! Love them!
These look amazing. I think I’m going to try them tomorrow. Thanks for another amazing cookie recipe.
Yum!!! I love me some chocolate. Would it bee too much to dip these in chocolate milk? No? Didn’t think so.
Those look wonderful! They would make a nice treat for my newly chocolate obsessed daughter!
I’m speechless over these cookies. Speechless. I would eat them until they were gone and then probably bake more!
OMG, I just made these today. Although my recipe is different, still the same idea! Perfect with milk.
Chunks of oreo cookies IN a cookie?! Okay, I’m in. All in!
Nom Nom Nom… I could 1 or 6 of these right now!
Honestly, I don’t think I could stop at seconds, not with these beauties.
These look awesome! Lots of chocolate and oreos scream for a huge cookie. I’m definitely making these soon.
Yum!! I will be making these! Just a question of when, but they look too amazing not to!
I was just wondering what I would bake up this holiday weekend. Now I can’t imagine baking anything other than this. How can you ever go wrong with Oreos?
These look fantastic! I can’t wait to try them.
those are definitely begging to be eaten with a glass of milk…holy heaven!
These are awesome Michelle…a most definite bake…we love all the ingredients,
I agree – I have tried a few of Maria”s cookies before and they are good! These look great – love all of the recipes with oreos stuffed inside:-)
What a perfect cookie to make for my Labor Day celebrations. Thank you for this yummy post!
These cookies look just about perfect – can’t wait to try them!
These look soo good! I’ve been wanting to make cookies for hours now. Even dreamt about it lol. Now I’ve decided this fall and winter will be all about cookies. Excited!
Wow, these sound amazingly delicious. And your pictures of them are so…well…I just have to say your pictures are delicious too!
