These cookies are so fun!
I’m not usually drawn to cookies that you don’t bake, but I simply had to make these when I saw them online. I love Oreo cookies and chocolate chip cookie dough so it sounded like a match made in heaven. It turns out I was right because they are so good.
I think that this is the safest cookie dough to eat. There are no eggs in it, and I baked the all-purpose flour before I mixed it into the cookie dough. There is some controversy as to whether flour is safe to eat so I decided to be extra cautious. I’ll leave it up to you to decide whether you want to do the same.
The cookie sandwich is dunked into melted chocolate and then covered with sprinkles. I love that part because sprinkles make everything fun! I don’t know why that is, but it’s a fact.
I think that this is great cookie to have at a party for kids. In fact, these cookies were a total winner with my nieces and nephews. Of course adults loved them too. 🙂
Cookie Dough Stuffed Chocolate Sandwiches Recipe
(Makes about 30 cookies)
- 1/2 cup butter (equivalent to 1 stick), melted
- 1/2 cup light brown sugar
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup all-purpose flour (*See note below.)
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup miniature chocolate chips
- 1 package (14.3 ounces) of chocolate sandwich cookies (I used Oreos.)
- 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1 tablespoon shortening
- 1/4 cup sprinkles
- (optional) 1-3 tablespoons milk
- Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat and set it aside.
- In a large bowl, whisk together the melted butter, brown sugar, white sugar, and vanilla extract.
- Add in the flour* and salt, and mix everything together. (See note below.) Make sure that the cookie dough has cooled because if it’s warm then the mini chocolate chips will melt into it as you stir.
- Once the cookie dough has cooled, stir in the mini chocolate chips. Set the cookie dough mixture aside.
- Separate chocolate sandwich cookies. Try your best to keep the creme intact.
- For each chocolate cookie sandwich, form about 1 heaping teaspoon of cookie dough into a ball. Note, the cookie dough may be a little crumbly, but the heat from your hands should bind it together. If it’s still too crumbly to form a ball, then add 1 to 3 tablespoons of milk to the bowl of cookie dough and mix everything together.
- Place the cookie dough onto the cookie half with the creme and then gently press it down a little.
- Place the other cookie half on top of the cookie dough and gently press it down. Don’t press it down too hard otherwise the cookie will break.
- Melt the semi sweet chocolate and shortening. I did this by placing both ingredients in a microwave safe bowl and microwaved in 30 second intervals until it was melted.
- Dip each cookie dough stuffed cookie sandwich halfway into melted chocolate and then place each one on the prepared cookie sheet.
- Immediately after dipping each cookie, sprinkle some sprinkles on the chocolate dipped side.
- Let the cookie sandwiches rest until the chocolate has hardened. I placed them in the refrigerator to speed up the process.
Note: If you don’t want to consume raw all-purpose flour then spread the flour onto a cookie sheet and cook it for 12 minutes in a preheated oven at 350 degree F. Then proceed with the directions.
