Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Stuffed Oreos

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….

LIGHTBULB!

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.

 Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Stuffed Oreos
(Cookie dough adapted from Taste of Home)
1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips
1 (16-ounce) package Oreo or chocolate sandwich cookies
Chocolate bark or chocolate disks for dipping (melted according to package directions)
Mini M&Ms for decoration
Cream the butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy.  Beat in vanilla and condensed milk. Add flour and salt and beat well. Stir in chocolate chips.
Separate each cookie into two halves.  Using a small cookie scoop, scoop a level mound of cookie dough onto one of the halves and top with the other half, slightly pressing down.  Repeat with remaining cookies.  Chill in fridge for about an hour.  Dip in chocolate, letting excess drip off, and place on wax paper lined cookie sheet.  Sprinkle with M & Ms to decorate and place in fridge until chocolate hardens.

    When I was in Culinary school one of my professors/chefs told us that anything you think of is not going to be original. At the time I thought this was harsh, untrue, and a bit depressing but, now I realize that he was probably right.

    Anyway, these look a little like heaven to me… :)

    Hi Lorie, I’m Lori too, and you’re like my new best friend ;) These are so fabulous! I know what you mean about coming up w/ a great idea and googling it and finding out that you’re not the first one that had that great idea. Happens to me all the time. But these are seriously fun. Good job!

    Wow! This is a treat! Heavenly,Lorie. I cannot resist not making these treats. The next birthday celebration in my family is in 2 weeks and she (sis in law) is turning 36, I am sure she will love to have this with her Disney Princesses themed party. Talk about growing old and maturing haha! The irony of it all. This will be a blast.
