Homemade Oreos

There is something about a chewy chocolate cookie sandwich filled with cream cheese frosting that makes me smile.

How about you?

I have used this recipe for years and shared it with many.

I prefer to use a milk chocolate cake mix, but if you prefer a darker chocolate, you can use a devil’s food cake mix or Betty Crocker’s Triple Chocolate Fudge is delicious as well.  I can’t say it enough… make sure you use a quality cake mix ie… Betty Crocker, Duncan Hines, etc. I have found the off-brand mixes to be grainy at times and they just never seem to mix up smoothly. So take my word for it. You’ll thank me later.

What makes these cookies so special {besides the delicious chewy chocolaty cookie goodness} is the rich cream cheese frosting. Because…frosting! Add some food coloring for a special touch or simply roll them in delicious sprinkles for a special occasion.

The BEST OREOs ever

Ingredients:

  • 2 chocolate cake mixes (I like Betty Crocker Milk Chocolate best)
  • 4 eggs
  • 3/4 cup oil

Frosting Ingredients:

  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 2 2/3 cup powdered sugar (+/-)

Directions:

  1. Mix cake mixes, eggs and oil together.  Drop by teaspoonfuls (or use cookie scoop) on cookie sheet. I like to line mine with a SILPAT but it isn’t necessary. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 8-10 minutes. DO NOT OVERBAKE! Cool completely on cooling rack.
  2. Mix frosting ingredients together.  Frost the underside of a cookie with frosting and sandwich together. Roll in a bowl of sprinkles if you want to.
