So I wanted to make something fun and festive to take to a church gathering last week, and I had a bag of pretzels sitting on my counter. I remembered seeing this recipe from this excellent site and I was all BOING!!!! I AM SOOO MAKING THESE!!! I went to my freezer to get out the mini chocolate chips and guess what I saw there?
Yes, OREOS! (Alright, Cream Betweens if you want to be all technical.) I like to keep some in my freezer for emergency purposes. But anyway….
And I was like PRETZEL WHO?
I lost no time, I mean NO. TIME. whipping up a batch of my favorite no-egg raw cookie dough batter, and I started stuffing and dipping and sprinkling and before I knew it, my counter looked like a rainbow had thrown up on it. (But in a good way.)
And I was totally high-fiving myself thinking “Why haven’t I seen this across the blogosphere yet because with all the raw cookie dough recipes on the internet, someone surely had to have already thought of this?”
So I did a google search and yep. Sure enough. Right here. She used a peanut butter based cookie dough. Can you say yum?
Brilliant culinary minds think alike.
Not that I’m saying we’re brilliant, but, yeah, we kinda are because COOKIE DOUGH STUFFED OREOS? SHUT UP!

[Round of applause from the internet]
Here are my notes:
-I adapted my cookie dough from Taste of Home because I like that it uses sweetened condensed milk, but you can probably use your favorite eggless raw cookie dough recipe.
-I used a 12-ounce bag of the Wilton chocolate dipping disks and I did not have enough to dip all of the sandwiches in. Next time, I would use the block of chocolate almond bark or use 2 bags of the disks.
-I used a small cookie scoop to place the dough into the cookie. Worked perfectly.
-What about using double stuff Oreos next time, huh? Huh? Wouldn’t that be good?
-I had almost the perfect amount of cookie dough for 1 pack of cookies, minus a few spoonfuls for me.
-I am so making these again soon with Nutter Butters. Or Nutter Butter knock offs. Whichever.
