Oreo Pudding Cookies

Let’s examine this cookie…
…bits of Oreo
…chunks of Cookies ‘N Cream candy bar
 …gooey melted chocolate chips
Um…you had me at Oreo.
I’ve actually never been a fan of pudding mix in cookies. Why? I have no idea. Maybe it was the same time I decided I hated mushrooms to which I have whole heartedly repented of. The pudding mixture makes the cookies so moist and they just melt in your mouth.
These are some of the best things I’ve eaten in a while.
And….I eat a lot of….things.
These come from my SIL Kristy over at Sweet Treats and More. Somehow we were born with the same palate so I trust everything she makes. I changed her recipe ever so slightly just to fit what I had on hand.
And thank goodness I bought 3 Cookies N’ Cream bars just in case because my babysitter helped herself to one while we were out. Which I don’t mind at all because it probably made her happy and I like happy people watching my kids.

  • 1 cup butter room temperature
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 4.2 ounce package instant Oreo Pudding mix (see Note)
  • 2 1/4 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 Hershey's Cookies N Cream Candy Bars broken into small pieces I used 2.6 ounce King Sized bars
  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Combine flour, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl and set aside. Cream together butter and sugars. Beat in pudding mix until blended. Add the eggs and vanilla and mix well. Add the flour mixture and mix to combine. Stir in cookies n' cream pieces and chocolate chips. Batter will be thick.
  3. Using a cookie dough scooper, place golf ball sized dough balls on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake at 350 degrees for 8 minutes. You do not want to overbake these! Let cookies cool for 5 minutes on baking sheet before moving to a cooking rack. Store in air-tight container. Makes two dozen.

Speak Your Mind



  1. Oh my! Delishious looksing cookies. Yum!

  2. These look so delicious!! LOve the cookies and cream bars, such a yummy idea 🙂

  3. You had me at that photo….oooey gooey goodness.

  4. Ok, apparently I have been living under some sort of rock, because I have only recently discovered pudding cookies. I have to say I am a wee bit obsessed with them right now and this one is definately going on my list. Holy YUM!!!

  5. These cookies look perfect! I’ve been hesitent to try pudding cookies but you have me convinced that they are delicious.

  6. Oh for the love! These are going to be amazing I can tell! Thanks and you should come link them up on TTT at http://www.mandysrecipebox.blogspot.com

  7. Love the addition of chocolate chips!

  8. OMG these look like heaven! I am totally going to get the stuff to make these today!

  9. Oh how I love soft cookies! Although I’ve get to try pudding in a cookie, I’ve always known I would like it one day when I finally make it. And these look superb!

  10. So delicious!!! My girls and I just made them and they are wonderful!! Thanks for all your fun recipes!! Love ya!

  11. these look seriously good, but unfortunately, like quite a few delicious recipes, they don’t sell a handful of these ingredients in the UK (or anything remotely similar) – gutting 🙁

  12. I want some right now!! You had me at the update in my blog roll, I didn’t need to see a photo or title. Sinful!!

  13. These look amazing. I have never tried pudding in cookies before but, I just wrote it on my grocery list. I can’t wait to make these!

  14. I have a huge problem with anything oreo….I can’t wait to make these! I better make sure I have a reason to take them somewhere. Otherwise, I might just eat every last one of them.

  15. How did you adapt the recipe? The addition of salt? That’s the only variation I see between the two recipes. Please advise.

  16. Made these today and they were a HUGE hit! I couldn’t stop eating them either =/ DELICIOUS!!!

  17. These are the BEST cookies ever!

  18. Wow, yum. I’ll definitely have to try those

  19. This recipe is just wonderful – so delicious. I live in Australia and am wondering what ingredients I could substitute for the Oreo Pudding Mix. Any suggestions much appreciated.

  20. Wow! Just found your blog, and I am so happy i did! These look great! Cant wait to make them for my kiddo’s this summer break! Im sure AZ has all the ingredients.. I have never seen the Oreo pudding box, but i have never looked for it either.

  21. @Anonymous,
    I just added some salt, used semi-sweet instead of milk chocolate chips, and king sized cookies n’ cream bars. Nothing major.

  22. These look SO good!

  23. i made these yesterday and they are amazing! at first, when they were hot, i thought they were a little too sweet; but a day later they’ve moved themselves right up to the top of my favorite cookie recipe list! everyone whose tried them has loved them as well! thanks for such great recipes and fun stories!

  24. I made these on Monday – and let’s just say, they have been demolished. Guess the plan to keep them for the trip to my parents house is out the window.
    My husband came home from work that night, had one, and claimed it was the best cookie I’ve ever made. Thus the demolishment of the cookies!
    I’m making a new batch today – figuring we can’t possibly eat them all before tomorrow!! 🙂
    Thanks for the recipe! Fantastic!

  25. Just made these this afternoon- yum! I did make a few minor changes (sorry, I’m not a good recipe follower, I like to use them more as a guideline 🙂

    I used about 1 1/2 of the Cookies ‘n Cream candy bars, left out the chocolate chips and added a bunch of chopped up Oreos, the Oreos added a great crunch to the cookie and upped the ‘Oreo-ness’ of the cookie. Only downside is the mixer ground up some of the Oreos so the cookie has a grey-ish tinge- not as pretty as your cookies, but they’re delicious!

  26. I made these for a Memorial Day picnic. They didn’t last long. Some of the kids even asked that I tell their mom how to make them. Delicious!

  27. These cookies are amazing!! My husband is a soldier, and he took some of these cookies in to work with him the other day and they were gone within a couple minutes. They are just so delicious!

  28. Ok so I am not sure where I went wrong, but I made these and they were not soft at all. They were hard. You just put in the dry pudding mix right? You don’t mix it with milk?

  29. @Anonymous,
    No you do not mix the pudding with milk. It’s really important to not overbake these – it makes all the difference in the world.

  30. thanks for the recipe, just posted on my blog.

  31. I made these tonight. I went to three different grocery stores and couldn’t find this mysterious instant oreo pudding mix! I decided to go with extra cookies n’ cream candy bar and vanilla pudding mix instead. They turned out wonderfully- soft and delicious! If I ever come across the oreo mix I’ll be sure to try them the original way!

  32. So I just baked these about a half hour ago, and just now took a bite into one of them. I think I could get lost in this cookie. They are simply HEAVENLY! Fantastic recipe, Christy!

  33. I did make these cookies and wondered where I went wrong. I wish I had thrown some real oreo cookies crumbled in at the very end. I didn’t think the oreo flavor was very strong. I have to say I am a total baker, love ,ove to bake and I was just a tad diappointed! they were very moist. I did enjoy that!

  34. I actually sell these types of cookies!Been trying to catch up with the demands that I’ve been getting! Check out my blog!

  35. Just made a double batch of these gems for our baby shower BBQ next weekend. Glad I doubled it, ’cause the family would’ve revolted had I told them they could only taste test a partial cookie!! Delicious!

    I love that they’re slightly crispy on the outside, but ridiculously soft and moist on the inside.

    I DID only use 1/2 of the amount of chocolate chips and C&C bars– they turned out just perfect for our taste buds. I’m making two different kinds of cupcakes and some cookie tarts as well, and didn’t want to completely overwhelm guests with sweetness (especially after gorging themselves on KC BBQ)! 😉

    Thanks so much for this recipe! Will definitely become a permanent in my recipe book.

  36. I made these last night and can I just say they are AMAZING!! They taste even better the next day. We will definitely be making these again!! Thanks for the recipe:)

  37. My roommate made these cookies following your recipe, and we all agreed that they were the best cookies we’d ever experienced. Wow! Thanks!

    I’m attempting to recreate them using pistachio pudding and with pistachios and white chocolate chips in them. The batter tastes lovely, but I’m having a hard time with the actual baking. I did them for 10 minutes rather than 8, and they still seem undercooked. I don’t think that my substitutions should make a difference in cooking time, do you?

  38. @Katy,
    Those substitutions seem pretty straight across to me too. Seems like it wouldn’t make that big of difference. Unless the pistachio pudding has more moisture to it or something? Not sure….

  39. I featured this tutorial in my “Top Ten CRAFTS I loved this week”.
    It’s an awesome tutorial!!!


  40. These look so yummy! I don’t have parchment paper. Will aluminum foil work?

  41. @Sarah, you dont have to use parchment or aluminum. I just think all cookies bake better with parchment.

  42. I saw your recipe on your sister’s blog which I found on Pinterest. I decided to adapt your recipe by using pumpkin spice pudding and white chocolate chips instead of Oreo pudding and the cookies ‘n’ cream candy bars. They’re baking in the oven right now! 🙂

  43. Oh.my.heavens.these look good! Do you use salted or unsalted butter? I’m making them this weekend for our family’s holiday get together. Can’t wait!

  44. I usually always use unsalted butter but these cookies are so sweet that I think salted butter would be great.

  45. these cookies are awesome, everyone lovesss them. they were especially good still warm out of the oven 🙂

  46. Those look SO delicious!!!


  47. I have never gotten so many compliments on a recipe! Everyone loves them & continues to ask for more!

  48. I would love to make these but can’t find this pudding mix here in the UK 🙁

  49. This is now the third time I’ve made these cookies they are so good – everyone loves them and have that extra touch of being a bit different so like you had to take extra time vs. any other cookie 🙂

  50. I have made these twice! The first time I used vanilla pudding mix and they turned out perfectly! However, the next time I used the Oreo pudding mix, and the batter was stickier and the cookies had a cake-like consistency. Has anyone had this problem?

  51. Mine didn’t turn out as pretty and perfect looking as yours did but oh my were they delicious! Thank you so much for sharing this recipe — it’s going to be my #1 “Go To” cookie recipe.

  52. This is the best cookie I have ever tasted. And the fact that I can’t easily find the oreo pudding mix, and have to order it online kinda makes the cookies that much better!

  53. Love these cookies and have made them many times; today I used this as a base recipe for a more holiday-themed cookie and swapped the Oreo pudding for pistachio, and in place of chocolate chips and the chocolate bars I added chopped pistachios, dried cranberries and white chocolate chips. The cookies turned out super!

  54. Mine had a grey tint as well….looks like cookies n cream ice cream! But they are, hands down, THE best cookie I’ve ever made and ever had!!

  55. This was my first attempt at homemade-no prepared dough cookies. And they turned out yummy. I couldn’t find the correct pudding mix so used Hershey chocolate pudding – such a rich cookie. Next time will try the Hershey white chocolate. My family loved them and now I know I can make homemade cookies!!

  56. WOW. I tried this recipe and these cookies are amazing. They are my husband and my new favorite cookie! So soft and the flavor is awesome!

  57. I’m making these cookies tonight for our Super Bowl Party… I can’t wait!!! I had no trouble finding the Oreo pudding mix at my grocery store, but I am having a harder time NOT eating the candy bars before I make the cookies!! LOL I LOVE your website and your recipes! Thanks!!

    • Christy {The Girl Who Ate Everything} says:

      Seriously, those candy bars are my absolute favorite and I didn’t even think I liked white chocolate that much.

  58. PLEASE!!!! Do yourself ad your family and friends (neighbors) a favor and MAKE THESE! They are fantastic and I have never used pudding in a cookie but I sure won’t shoot one down next time! They are crunchy on the outside, soft and chewy on the inside. Add the creaminess of the white chocolate Hershey bar balanced perfectly with the semi-sweet chips and this a huge winner! I’m glad I’m pregnant so I can indulge extra without the funny looks 😉

  59. Are this cookies soft or crispy?

  60. Mine were completely raw after 8 minutes at 350. I even left the next batch in for three minutes longer and still raw.

  61. Thank you for this recipe! It is amazing and have made them several times and they always disappear! I switched it up for Fall and used pumpkin spice pudding mix and white chocolate chips…oh my please try them this way. please. Oh and HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

  62. Amateur baker says:

    I made these tonight as a test to see if I wanted to make these for a cookie exchange I’m going to. These are bites of heaven! I followed this recipe to the letter and was able to get 42 2.5″ cookies out of one batch! I think for the cookie exchange I’m going to melt some white chocolate, mix it with some crushed Oreo cookies and drizzle it on the top of them.

  63. These sound too good to be true. They have Oreo’s in them so how can you go wrong? I am putting them on my must make list.
    Have a blessed Easter,

  64. Avery Bakersfield says:

    I made these for the first time today and this is a simple to make and very tasty cookie; as the author states, it is VERY important to NOT OVERBAKE THEM — I have an electric oven and baked them for 8 minutes but wasn’t sure they were ‘done’; tried 9 minutes but this was actually too long as far as softness goes, so I went with 8 to 81/2 minutes depending on the size I scooped out. I did not do golf ball scoop size cookie dough – too big! Also, I could only find two size of the cookies ‘n crème candy bars so I combined the two sizes to equal the ounces specified — this amounted to about 1-3/4 cups of broken up candy bar pieces. Recommend you don’t skimp on the chocolate chips either – they really make the cookie! I even added an additional 1/2 to 3/4 cup of good Ghirardelli white chocolate chips. Received rave reviews from people at work (I work in a fancy restaurant) who are foodies and really picky – keep them soft though by underbaking!

  65. These are the best!
    They are my go to cookie recipe, never fails 🙂

  66. Can you use chocolate pudding if oreo pudding is not available?Also do you just add the dry pudding to the other ingredients or do you follow instructions on the pudding package and then add?Thanks!

    • Christy {The Girl Who Ate Everything} says:

      You leave the pudding dry. I would try a vanilla pudding or cheesecake pudding. I’m afraid a chocolate pudding would overpower it.

  67. These cookies were delicious! I was prejudice to the whole pudding mix idea but they truly are soft and stay soft. Mine came out a little flatter than yours but my butter was a little too soft. I would definitely make these again but I would reduce the sugar by at lease half. The pudding mix already has the equivalent of one cup of sugar in it. Thanks for the recipe!

  68. Hi, if I can’t find oreo pudding mix in my country, can I just put vanilla pudding mix and add to it some cocoa powder, powdered sugar, and crushed oreos? Like create my own oreo pudding mix. If this can’t work, what should I use instead?

  69. Everyone else in my family’s favorite seems to be the S’mores cookies, but these are mine! SOOOOOOOOOO delicious. I have also tried the recipe with white chocolate pudding mix, some cocoa powder, and white chocolate chips. They were delicious too!
