Valentine’s Day is almost upon us. Most of you are probably reaching for that Red Velvet Cupcake Recipe, a simple Chocolate Cupcake or maybe even getting a little playful with some Red Velvet Puppy Chow, but don’t forget about a classic favorite–the Oreo.


We all have our own way of eating Oreos. Cream first, dunking in milk, just going in for the kill… but I prefer to drop a few in a mug of milk and devour with a spoon. It sort of turns into Oreo cereal, but it’s absolutely delicious!

But these aren’t just any Oreos, these are The Ultimate Oreos with soft fudgey cookies and a cookies & cream filling that will make you fall in love (or make someone fall in love with you).


Ultimate Oreos

January 28th, 2014


Chocolate Cake Mix Cookies:

1 Box Devil's Food Cake Mix (I prefer the Pillsbury mixes)
2 eggs
1/3 cup oil
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 cup mini chocolate chips

Oreo Filling:

6 oz. cream cheese
6 tablespoons butter, softened
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2-3 cups powdered sugar
8 Oreos, finely crushed in a food processor


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line pans with parchment paper.
2. Combine cake mix, eggs, oil and brown sugar. Fold in mini chocolate chips. Batter will be thick.
3. Place small dough balls (about the size of 2 teaspoons) on cookie sheets 3 inches apart. Use your fingers to gently press the dough balls down to make them look like little "disks" rather than mounds of dough. Cake mix cookies tend to bake up tall, so we flatten them a little.
4. Bake for 6-9 minutes depending on how fudge-y or cake-y you want them to be.
5. Remove from pans and let cool.
6. Oreo Filling: Beat cream cheese and butter until smooth. Add vanilla extract and slowly add in powdered sugar until your reach your desired consistency. Fold in crushed Oreos. (I like to sift my crushed Oreos to make sure I don't accidentally put in a large chunk of cookie.)
7. Frost the bottoms of half the cookies, then take the unfrosted cookies and place them on top to "sandwich" them together!


Note: Place in a tupperware and let set in the fridge. This stiffens the filling so that when you bite into them, the frosting doesn't gush out the sides. They taste DIVINE after being in the fridge for at least 20 minutes.

What can I use as a substitute to the cake mixture?:) it looks delish!

This scratch recipe should work well:

Though the cake mix ones are really good, almost like brownie cookies, mmm…

These look fantasic! I love how giant they are…the traditional Oreos are much to small, and I have to eat 10 aaaand then I feel guilty. It’s nice to see something that isn’t red velvet for Vday and I am loving how simple these are. And, that Oreo cream….Drooling! Great recipe!


Katrina @ Warm Vanilla Sugar January 29, 2014 at 6:44 am

So fun! These little beauties look dreamy.


Shelly January 29, 2014 at 12:35 pm

Definitely going to try and make these this weekend; will let you know how they turn out. Thanks for the recipe and your blog; I love baking too!! :)

The cookies look like they have mini chocolate chips in them. We’re they accidentally omitted from the recipe or am I missing something? Thanks…they look yummy!


Lizzy Early January 31, 2014 at 10:59 am

Yes, I am so sorry I added 1 Cup of mini chocolate chips to the batter. It was a last minute addition that I left out of my notes!


Michele January 29, 2014 at 10:11 pm

Is the cake mix the new smaller box size or the 18.5 oz box cake mix?


Lizzy Early January 31, 2014 at 11:00 am

This recipe is for the new smaller size. I used the Pillsbury brand in case you want to be really specific :)


Jess January 30, 2014 at 1:24 pm

These look yummy!

In the pictures, it looks like the cookies have mini chocolate chips in them… is that optional or is that something that comes in the cake mix? Just curious.

Thank you for sharing such a tasty treat! :)


Katie January 30, 2014 at 1:43 pm

These sound delightful! In the picture it looks like there are chocolate chips in the cookies…but the recipe doesn’t call for any. Have you tried it with chocolate chips? Thanks for the yummy recipes!


Lizzy Early January 31, 2014 at 11:02 am

Yes I am so sorry, I added 1 Cup of chocolate chips to the batter, though the cookies are still delicious without them!


Miranda February 9, 2014 at 1:14 am

These look amazing, but I was wondering how many cookie sandwiches did you end up with?


Charlene G February 9, 2014 at 2:01 pm

Do you remove the cream from the Oreos before you put them in the food processor?


Anna L February 12, 2014 at 12:44 am

I made these today and kept the cream in the cookies and with the chocolate chips and all that powdered sugar, they ended up being way too sweet in my opinion. I would recommend to remove the cream to cut down on some of the sweetness (of course you can cut down on the powdered sugar too but this is a start)


Dia February 10, 2014 at 1:20 pm

Will these freeze will once made into the sandwich?


Mell December 9, 2014 at 10:28 pm

They freeze very well and actually I liked them better frozen!


Frankie April 16, 2014 at 8:22 pm

Your cookie recipes look amazing! I have just started a baking blog myself and would love it if you checked it out!


Mell November 9, 2014 at 12:05 am

These are absolutely amazing! They’re tasty frozen too!


Jamie November 9, 2014 at 6:20 pm

I’m so glad you liked them. Thanks for visiting.



Allison November 15, 2014 at 3:44 pm

SO good! Next time, though, I will definitely make them a little smaller. The cookies in my first batched were HUGE. The second batch looked more like the ones in the pictures on this site.


Jamie November 16, 2014 at 3:45 pm

I am so glad the cookies turned out for you. Thanks for visiting.
