Cookie Dough Oreos you can make at home! You're no longer prisoner to Nabisco's whims, thanks to Hayley's genius.
Last year, Oreo released the highly-anticipated Cookie Dough Oreos and I promptly fell in love. They had mixed reviews, but personally, I thought they were one of Oreo’s greatest hits. They were sweet, chocolaty, and I thought the cookie dough filling was awesome. But they were also short-lived, and if I could go back in time, I’d remedy this by buying all of Target’s stock.
But that’s because hindsight is 20/20. And you always think the love of your life will stay by your side, loyally on the Target shelves forever. But things change, and so do cookie flavors, and suddenly you find yourself alone and woefully cookie-less, crying uncontrollably while listening to breakup songs. Or is that just me?
Anyway, I figured it was high time I made my own Cookie Dough Oreos so I could replace the store-bought kind with something delicious and homemade. These Oreos taste pretty darn similar to the real deal, save for the fact that my version is a bit softer and cakey than the typical Oreo. This is due to using Devil’s Food cake mix as the Oreo cookie base, providing a nice, soft and chewy cookie that’s rich and chocolaty.
And the filling – oh, chiiiiiild, the filling! It’s made with egg-free chocolate chip cookie dough, ramping up that cookie dough flavor to the extreme. There’s no cutting corners here – the filling is pure, unadulterated cookie dough. You’re welcome.
No breakup songs necessary; this is true love, y’all.
