- butter, only slightly softened, see Top Tip below
- granulated sugar
- brown sugar - I used light brown, but dark brown would work fine.
- eggs -I used large eggs in this recipe
- vanilla - we always recommend pure vanilla, but imitation will work in a pinch.
- food dye - completely optional, these taste great without the blue food coloring.
- flour - regular, all-purpose flour.
- baking soda
- salt - we used plain table salt in this recipe.
- white chocolate chips
- semi-sweet chocolate chips
- chopped cookies like Chips Ahoy or Famous Amos
1.Preheat oven to 350*F. Chop Chips Ahoy and set aside. In the bowl of a stand mixer or using a hand mixer, beat the butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar together. Beat on high speed for 2 minutes until light and fluffy.
2. Add the eggs and vanilla and beat on high speed for 30 more seconds. Add in the blue food coloring.
3. Mix until well combined. You can play around with the color a bit, it tends to bake pretty green so we added a little bit of purple (you could do a smear or drop of red instead) to get it to a deep blue color.
4. Add the flour, baking soda and salt and mix juuuuust until combined. Be careful not to over mix! Using a spatula, fold in the white chocolate chips, semi- sweet chocolate chips and chopped Chips A'Hoy cookies.
5. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat. Grabbing a large chunk of dough (about 2 Tablespoons or so) smash it out into a disc shape. Flatten it as much as you can, it will end up the thickness of the chocolate chips. Place an OREO in the center of the dough disc.
6. Get a few more teaspoons of dough and place them on top of the OREO then fold up the edges to wrap around and completely cover the OREO. Bake at 350*F. for 10-12 minutes. The tops will turn matte and the edges will be set and start to turn golden. Though it can be difficult to see the golden color with the blue dough, you can see it if you look carefully.
Hint: Feel free to play around with the dough color. You'll want it nice and dark and to be more on the purple side than the green side, as they tend to bake more green. We added some purple to ours to get the perfect color.
- Food Coloring - I made a few test batches without any food coloring and they tasted great and looked great too! Also feel free to make them any color for any occasion!
- Famous Amos - you can use Famous Amos or any other store bought cookie that is crunchy for these!
- Milk Chocolate Chips - feel free to use milk chocolate chips instead of semi-sweet chocolate chips, if that is your preference.
- OREOs - use any flavor of OREO you want, peanut butter, mint, chocolate marshmallow, chocolate, etc.
- Peanut Butter Cookie Monster Cookies- Use peanut butter chips instead of white chips and Nutter Butters instead of Chips Ahoy for the world's most amazing and fun Nutter Butter Cookies. Could also use PB OREOS instead of regular as well!
- Mint OREO Cookie Monster Cookies- Use mint chips instead of white chips and Grasshopper cookies instead of Chips Ahoy. Could possibly use Mint OREOs too!
- Birthday Cake Stuffed Cookies - use sprinkles instead of white chips and Birthday Cake OREOS instead of regular OREOs.
- tiktok Cookie Monster Cookies- instead of placing an OREO in the center, use 2 rectangles of Hershey's chocolate and stick in the middle instead. If going this route, we recommend adding a cup of chopped OREOs to the batter.
- mixing bowl
- hand mixer -OR-
- stand mixer
Store in an airtight container for up to 4 days. Reheat in the microwave for 8-10 seconds.
We have not tested freezing these. The OREOs might get mushy upon thawing, but if you would like to freeze, store in an airtight container for up to 2 months.
Only slightly soften the butter. A colder butter helps these particular cookies keep their form. We recommend getting out the butter about 20 minutes before starting if you're in a cold kitchen, 15 minutes before if you're in a normal kitchen (around 70*F) and about 10 minutes before starting if in a hot kitchen.
Get an OREO and a large mound of cookie dough. Flatten it into a pancake type shape. Place the OREO in the center, and fold the edges up and around the OREO. Add more cookie dough on top if necessary to completely encase the OREO. Bake as normal, removing from the oven when the edges have just started to turn golden and the tops are matte.
Make your favorite chocolate chip cookie dough recipe. If blue cookies are desired, add the food coloing at the same time as the eggs. Add white chocolate chips, regular chocolate chips and chopped Chips Ahoy at the end. Wrap the dough around an OREO, completely encasing it. Bake as normal, removing from the oven when the edges have set and the tops are matte.
