Oreo Cake Mix Cookies

Nothing beats a batch of homemade cookies fresh from the oven. The problem is that sometimes life just gets too busy to bake cookies completely from scratch.

That’s why I really love this easy cake mix hack…just stir a few simple ingredients together and bake! The results are amazing, and it’s the perfect solution when you’re craving homemade cookies fast!

Not only are these cookies are loaded up with sweet chocolate chips, but we jazzed them up by adding crushed Oreos to the dough too. I mean, if I can find a way to incorporate them into a dessert recipe, I jump at the chance! Just check out these sweet Oreo Cupcakes, easy Oreo Fluff and this decadent Oreo Poke Cake!

Why We Love These Cookies

  • Easy cookies: Super easy recipe that doesn’t even require an electric mixer. You just whisk and bake.
  • Perfect texture: Also known as cookies and cream cookies, every bite is slightly crispy around the edges and soft and chewy in the center. 
  • Delicious flavors: They are the perfect combination of chocolate chip cookies and homemade Oreo cookies. SO good!

Ingredients

  • White cake mix- you can use vanilla cake mix if you prefer
  • Eggs-always start with room temperature eggs
  • Vegetable oil-canola oil works best
  • Oreo sandwich cookies-crushed
  • Chocolate chips-you can use regular or mini chocolate chips

How to Make Homemade Cake Mix Oreo Cookies

Step 1. Preheat oven to 350°f and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.

Step 2. Place the cookies in a plastic storage bag and crush them into fine cookie crumbs.

Step 3. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the dry cake mix, eggs, and vegetable oil. As the dough begins to thicken, use a cake spatula to fold it together. You can also use your stand mixer for this.

Step 4. Fold in Oreo cookie pieces and chocolate chips. If using a stand mixer, be sure to set it to the lowest speed and don’t overmix. You want your Oreo pieces to stay intact.

Step 5. Use a medium cookie scoop to scoop cookie dough balls onto the lined cookie sheet.

Step 6. Bake for 9-10 minutes, until cookie bottoms are golden brown. For best results transfer to a wire rack until they have cooled completely.

How to Store Leftover Baked Cookies

Store leftover room temperature cookies in an airtight container for up to a week. (But good luck getting these irresistible cookies to last that long!)

  • Chocolate chips: This recipe uses semi-sweet chocolate chips, but you can add some white chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, or even mint chips for a fun twist.
  • Frosting: What better way to celebrate all the glorious flavors of these cookies than to take them one step further by frosting them! Once the cookies are baked, frost the tops of the cookies with cream cheese frosting made from powdered sugar, butter, cream cheese and a little bit of vanilla extract.
  • Oreos: These cookies use regular chocolate Oreo cookies, but there are so many variations you could try next time. Golden Oreos, Mint Oreos and Red Velvet Oreos all delicious options!
  • Whoopie pies: Who doesn’t love a whoopie pie?! Add your favorite vanilla buttercream, Oreo buttercream, cream cheese frosting or even our stabilized whipped cream frosting between two cookies and voila… you have Oreo whoopie pies.
  • Cake mix: You can switch it up with a chocolate cake mix, or a box of devil’s food cake mix instead of the white cake mix for decadent triple chocolate cookies. You can also add a colorful twist with a funfetti cake mix.

Can I Freeze These Cookies?

You sure can. Because they are a little more tender and more moist than some cookies, you’ll want to be sure to place a piece of parchment paper or plastic wrap between the layers of cookies before freezing. This will prevent them from sticking together.

Can I Make the Dough in Advance?

These cookies bake up best when the dough is freshly made because it tends to dry out the longer it sits. But since you only need 5 minutes of prep time, you can whip these up pretty quickly when you need them.

Tips And Tricks For The Best Cookies

  • This cookie dough will stick to the bottom of your sheet pan. Even if you’re using parchment or a silpat liner, you’ll need to let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for about 10 minutes so they won’t break apart when you pick them up.
  • I like to use a small cookie scoop to help gauge the size of each dough ball. They’ll bake much more evenly, and the results will be more consistent.
  • You do not have to flatten these cookies out. They’ll spread out while baking but will still be slightly fluffy, which is just what you’re looking for.
  • Resist over baking. These cookies are ready to come out of the oven when the middle of the cookies no longer look moist and the edges are just slightly brown.
