Oreo Chunk Cookies are perfect for parties, holidays, or for just baking an easy recipe with your family. Since most people won’t have heard of making cookies out of Oreos, they’re a great dessert that your guests will impress your guests.

These cookies are also perfect for dunking in milk or under Vanilla Ice Cream and Chocolate Ganache for a delicious sundae. Even better, make these into ice cream sandwiches, they’re the perfect base for the ultimate summer dessert.


College Cookie Tradition

This Oreo Chunk Cookie recipe was inspired by the local favorite Washington D.C. restaurant Wisemiller’s Deli, which has been selling a similar cookie for decades. Many students at nearby Georgetown University list this cookie among their favorites.

Wisey’s Deli has grown from what used to be a local convenience store for kids to get snacks and toiletries and mixers without having to take the shuttle to the grocery store and over the years it grew into a nearby row house to become a sandwich shop.

This cookie has earned a cult following along with the equally famous Chicken Madness Sub Sandwich

Sometimes it can feel like a letdown. You make cookie dough, let it rest and once baked you wonder why your cookies don’t look photoshoot ready like the ones you saw in photos or from the bakery. There is a trick to this! 

This doesn’t affect the flavor of the cookie dough, but it does affect the texture of the cookie as the additional chunks of cookie on the exterior of the cookie add a great chewy yet crispy texture to the cookies. 

If you stir all the Oreos into the dough, they’ll be hidden inside the cookie. Here’s what your cookies would look like if you mix all the Oreos into the batter (still delicious, but not as pretty). This is actually how Wisey’s makes their Oreo Cookies:

Oreo Chunk Cookies without rolling in chunks before baking

If you want your cookies to look like the rest of the pictures in this post you can instead add 1/3 of the chunks to your batter, then roll the cookies in the remaining chunks. By rolling the cookie dough into the chunks the cookies end up looking like this:

After making the dough, refrigerate it for 30 minutes to an hour so it’s easier to roll into dough balls. Put the remaining Oreo chunks in a large bowl and roll them on the outside of the cookie dough balls. This slightly different technique makes the cookies so gorgeous.  Rolling the dough balls in Oreos ensures they’re throughout and outside the cookie, which makes them look and taste bakery worthy.


  • Chocolate Chips: Add semisweet or milk chocolate chips to your batter to have an even richer cookie.
  • Baking Chips: Give your cookies bursts of flavor with white chocolate chips, mint chips (great for the holidays!), or salted caramel chips.
  • Melted Chocolate: Dip the cookies halfway in melted chocolate or dip the bottom half of the cookie in chocolate. Microwave either white chocolate chips/white chocolate candy bark or dark chocolate chips in a glass bowl, stirring every 30 seconds until melted.
  • Nuts: Stir in some chopped peanuts, or your favorite nuts, to give the cookies some extra crunch!
  • Flavored Oreos: Swap out the Oreos for your favorite special flavor of Oreo like birthday cake, mint, red velvet, or white Oreos.


Tips for making Oreo Chunk Cookies

  • Allow the butter to soften at room temperature before mixing. Melted butter will cause the dough to spread and flatten. If the butter is too cold, it won’t cream and form air pockets. Air pockets make your cookies light and fluffy.
  • If you want the cookies to be perfectly chewy, bake them until the edges are set and slightly browned.
  • Keep these cookies moist, make sure you store them in a closed container. Add a slice of bread to the container to maintain moisture control.
  • Microwave the cookies for 10 seconds before enjoying to bring back a bit of fresh out of the oven flavor.


  • Serve: Keep Oreo Chunk Cookies in a sealed container at room temperature for up to 2 days.
  • Store: You can store your cookies longer in the fridge for up to a week. To get your cookies chewy again, pop in the microwave for about 15 seconds.
  • Freeze: Freeze your cookie dough or baked cookies for up to 2 months in an airtight container. Freeze cookie dough on a baking sheet for an hour before transferring to a freezer bag.

  1. I’m using Oreo chucks (like ice cream topping Oreo chunks) How many cups do I use for the Oreo dust and the Oreo chunks?

  2. Too sweet. Reduced the amount of light brown sugar by half already, still found them to be too sweet.
    And the butter to flour ratio is not right. Texture of the cookies came out a bit too soft, almost cakey. Will adjust and try again.

  3. My husband was skeptical… but they turned out great! I did half with chocolate chips and half without and our preference was with the chips.

  4. I made these cookies and they were the best I ever had. I loved them so much I made them again two days later. I ran out of Oreos and used the Oreo crumb pie as crumbles instead and it affected the cookies. They did not taste good at all. I am so mad because I have all this dough saved and I was super excited to have these cookies again.

  5. This was fantastic!! Best cookies I’ve ever made. Thank you so much for the recipe. I think this yields more than 24 cookies, not complaining 🙂
    Wondering though, how long can I keep the extra cookie dough in the fridge before it might go bad?

    1. I’d freeze excess dough. It will dry out in the fridge after 24 hours and the batter won’t spread as far in baking.

  6. My daughter and I are always looking for unique cookie recipes. Had a bunch of Oreos from a Costco pack we bought, this was the perfect recipe to put them to use. Came out perfect, the entire family loved them! Thanks!!!

      1. Hi Sabrina, thanks so much for this recipe! Just a few questions:

        1. Do you use weight in this recipe? Or just rely on the cups? If you use weights, is it possible to share it here as well?
        2. Can I use dark brown sugar instead of light?
        3. Can I include the oreo fillings in the dough? Will it impact the cookie?

        Thank you!!

        1. I usually just use cups because it makes it easier for readers as most don’t have a scale to weigh their ingredients. You can easily switch the brown sugar to whatever you’d like. Lastly, the Oreo filling is used in this recipe. No need to remove it. I hope this helps clear things up and that you enjoy these cookies!

  7. My cookies come out super flat and they spread so much while baking! Should I maybe leave the dough in the refrigerator overnight and try again tomorrow?

    1. That might work but cookies spreading can be a few other factors as well, like incorrect measuring of flour or baking soda. Good luck!

  8. the dough tasted really good, but the cookie doesn’t look anything like that, its kinda like it melted? even though I put it In the fridge for almost 2 hours

  9. Question: Do I use the 2 full eggs, or 1 full egg and 1 yolk?

    “ Beat in the vanilla, egg, and egg yolk until light and creamy” from description doesn’t align with recipe instructions “ Beat in the vanilla and eggs until light and creamy”


    1. You’ll use 2 eggs and beat them in with vanilla until light and creamy. Sorry for the confusion.

      1. Is 350 degrees okay for a fan forced oven or should it be at a different temperature or amount of time ?

        1. From what I’ve read, it’s best to drop the temperature 20 degrees C when using a fan forced oven. Good luck!

  10. How many cups of crumbs do 10 oreos make? I have ready made oreo cookie crumbs for making cake crusts to use up.

    1. Hi! So I decided to try this recipe and I’m not the best Baker in the world..so I’d thought I’d come on here and ask what is the dough supposed to look like? If you can get back to me in time I’d appreciate it. 🙂

      1. It should be able to be squeezed but not stick to your fingers. Make sure not to over mix the dough. I really hope this helps!
