Triple Chocolate Oreo Cookies

These Triple Chocolate Oreo Cookies will satisfy your chocolate craving! More than three kinds of chocolate AND Oreos, all in one cookie!

Will you forgive me if I just jump into how amazeballs these cookies are?

I made these cookies last Sunday. Along with three other kinds of cookies, for “If you give a teacher cookies…” day on Monday.

On Monday, I made five breakfast recipes – and photographed them, for “If you give a teacher breakfast…” day on Tuesday.

On Wednesday, Jordan got grounded from TV until after school Friday. Even if you don’t work from home without childcare…you probably get how that means I was kind of grounded too.

Today? Today is Thursday. I’m making 8 dozen cupcakes for “If you give a teacher a cupcake…” day tomorrow.

Tomorrow I’m going to start drinking at 9am sleep.

And, I know I have a baking blog and all that, but OMG if I see my oven or my sink full of dirty dishes again I am going to scream.

So…let’s talk cookies. That’s much less stressful.

I like cookies. Especially chocolate ones.

When I eat a chocolate cookie I want it to be CHOCOLATE, you know what I mean? Like, I want the chocolate to stand up and punch me in the face.

That’s what these cookies do. But in a good way.

I called them Triple Chocolate Oreo Cookies, but that’s kind of a lie. There’s actually FOUR kinds of chocolate in them. But no one searches on Google for “Quadruple Chocolate Oreo Cookies.” I’m nothing if not a SEO slave.

Melted semi-sweet chocolate and cocoa powder give the base of these cookies a wham-o chocolate flavor.

Then I filled them with a full cup each of semi-sweet and milk chocolate chips.

Oh, and then there’s Oreos. It would seem I’m obsessed with Oreos lately. I mean, Oreo Peanut Butter Popcorn. And Oreo Peanut Butter. And now…Oreos in my cookies. But do y’all really mind?

 I didn’t really think you would. I certainly don’t!

Triple Chocolate Oreo Cookies

Yield: 30-36 cookies

Three kinds of chocolate meet in a rich cookie - and there are Oreos in them too!


  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 ounces semi-sweet chocolate, melted and cooled
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 8-10 Oreos, chopped (about 1 1/2 cups)


  1. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat both sugars, butter, vanilla, and eggs until smooth. Beat in melted baking chocolate and cocoa powder. Beat in flour and baking soda until well blended. Stir in all the chocolate chips and Oreo pieces.
  2. Chill dough for at least 1 hour. You can also chill it for about 30 minutes, then scoop balls of dough on the cookie sheets and chill those for about 10 minutes and you’ll net the same result as chilling the bowl of dough for an hour.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line cookie sheets with parchment or a silpat. Drop cookie dough balls (I used a 2 tablespoon cookie scoop) onto your cookie sheet, about 2 inches apart. (The dough does spread). Bake for 8-9 minutes, or until the top just stop looking glossy (you’ll start to smell them too). Cool completely before removing from cookie sheets.

{Note: as detailed in the recipe, you MUST chill the dough. There is a lot of butter in there and they will spread super thin if the dough isn’t cold! But the chocolate explosion is worth the wait, believe me!}

    OMG you’re right, these are amazeballs! I hate having sinks full of dirty dishes too. When I lived in Florida it was almost always me loading/unloading the dishwasher because I hated seeing the dishes my roommates always left in the sink. It’s just icky.


    • Dorothy Kern replied on May 9th, 2013 at 7:11 pm

      Roommates make it so much worse!! Thanks Faith!

    So that explains the dirty dishes in the sink on Instagram! That is a LOT of cupcakes, cookies and more in one week but totally worth it for a good cause. Teachers! By the way I am totally obsessed with Oreos as well as of late, especially the mint ones!

    These are great. Thanks again, Kiddo!
    Love you,

    Chopped up Oreos make everything better! Maybe you could try a nutterbutter version??

    Amaze balls is right. I love these cookies!

    You had me at Oreo! Wow, is this a great idea, but I’d expect nothing less from my friend, XOXO


  7. Back for Seconds posted on May 9, 2013 at 5:53 pm (#)

    Oh my word, quadruple chocolate?? Yes, please! They look like my kind of cookie :)
    You are amazing- I’m sure those teachers really feel appreciated with you around!


  8. Tieghan posted on May 9, 2013 at 6:12 pm (#)

    quadruple chocolate!! Holy yum!! Sounds like you have been working your kitchen to death. Those teachers have got to be real happy! Way to go you!! These cookies are insane. I want 5!

    Dude. When you need a drink at 9 am, you know I’m your girl, right? Not because I’ll talk you down, but because I will pour the first one with zero judgement :) Also, these look amazing. And {ahem} they are another {cough} Oreo recipe :)


    • Dorothy Kern replied on May 9th, 2013 at 7:07 pm

      LOL, I knew you’d be my girl. Oh, man. We realllly need to be neighbors!


  10. Jennifer @ Mother Thyme posted on May 9, 2013 at 6:56 pm (#)

    Those are some lucky teachers! These are amazeballs! I would totally go for about 10 of these right now! :) ps: I think I might start drinking at 9am tomorrow too. It’s been a rough week, lol! 😉


    • Dorothy Kern replied on May 9th, 2013 at 7:06 pm

      LOL, wish we could do it together Jennifer!


  11. Mary Frances @ The Sweet Tooth Life posted on May 9, 2013 at 7:50 pm (#)

    Um, I would be the person googling quadruple chocolate cookies:) But oh my goodness gracious – if you are going to make a chocolate cookie, it better be this one from here on out. Chocolate at its best! And I cannot imagine how much baking you have been doing. True dedication is shown by washing the same bowl three times in an hour. (I haven’t been able to bake this week, so I actually can’t wait to get in the kitchen and dirty some dishes!) I would totally wash your dishes for you if you let me have one of these cookies:)


    • Dorothy Kern replied on May 10th, 2013 at 5:42 am

      Right? I only have one Kitchen Aid Bowl and one other bowl big enough to be the “in a large bowl” bowl. I have washed them both so many times this week! :)


  12. Averie @ Averie Cooks posted on May 9, 2013 at 7:55 pm (#)

    I love making chocolate cookies with Oreos in them and working in the MAXIMUM amt of chocolate possible. Can never have too much!


    • Dorothy Kern replied on May 10th, 2013 at 5:41 am

      Nope, you never can! Thanks Averie!


  13. Jenn posted on May 9, 2013 at 8:00 pm (#)

    Yum! I love the polka dots!


  14. Kristi @ My San Francisco Kitchen posted on May 9, 2013 at 9:07 pm (#)

    Not only do these look AMAZING & GORGEOUS, they must taste incredible too! I wish so badly I had some of these for my dessert right now with a big glass of milk of course! :)


    • Dorothy Kern replied on May 10th, 2013 at 5:41 am

      Me too, I gave them all away! Thanks Kristi!


  15. Anne ~ Uni Homemaker posted on May 10, 2013 at 12:05 am (#)

    Oh my goodness, that looks sensational Dorothy! Will be putting this on my to-bake list Yum –love Oreos! :)


  16. Kelly @ Hidden Fruits and Veggies posted on May 10, 2013 at 4:58 am (#)

    I’ve never heard of ANY of those holidays. I think your child’s school is hustling you to get free tasty noms — I’m only jealous I didnt think of “if you send your fellow bloggers cookies” day :) These look AMAZING! I regularly send cookies to my friends who are less baking inclined, and I think these just made the list :)


    • Dorothy Kern replied on May 10th, 2013 at 5:40 am

      But that’s a great one. We may have to start that Kelly!


      • Kelly @ Hidden Fruits and Veggies replied on May 13th, 2013 at 11:30 am

        Made this on Saturday and gave a dozen to my mom for Mother’s day. She loved them! I also sent a few dozen more to my less baking-inclined friends. Everyone is freaking out about them :)

        • Dorothy Kern replied on May 13th, 2013 at 6:24 pm

          Yay!!!! I’m so glad Kelly. Thanks for telling me!

    The worst thing about a food blog has got to be the dishes! The best thing would be when you produce amazing cookies like these! Gorgeous pictures Dorothy!


  18. Louise at Cake and Calico posted on May 10, 2013 at 5:02 am (#)

    I guess these could be seen as kind of Postmodern cookies – cookies in cookies if you know what I mean…? And then you had to go and add all kinds of chocolate too. You are a wicked woman. But in a good way. LOL


  19. Angie | Big Bear's Wife posted on May 10, 2013 at 5:47 am (#)

    Hope you get to breath and de-stress soon! ……………. or you could just eat a ton of these Triple Chocolate Oreo Cookies!! haha. I’ll take a box of them please 😉


    • Dorothy Kern replied on May 10th, 2013 at 6:36 pm

      Yes, that sounds good. A box of these would totally de-stress me. :) Thanks Angie!


  20. Holly @ EatGreatBEGreat posted on May 10, 2013 at 6:05 am (#)

    These cookies sound decadent! I love the idea of adding in the oreos…one of my favorite cookies! Also, your pics are great!

    First of all, you deserve a break!
    Second, oh my yummy-ness. I’m a chocoholic and I’m in love with these cookies. Pinning and making!


  23. Annie @ Annie's Noms posted on May 10, 2013 at 8:08 am (#)

    Yummmmy!! I’ve been looking for something to make with a packet of Oreo’s I’ve got and now I know! 😀

    Cooooooooookies!!! Yes – these are awesome!


  25. Meghan @ The Tasty Fork posted on May 10, 2013 at 10:23 am (#)

    Sounds like you’ve been a busy girl! I HATE doing dishes. Why is rinsing off a dish to put in the dishwasher so difficult?? Oh that’s not the hard part – the hard part is putting the clean dishes away so I can reload the dishwasher.


    • Dorothy Kern replied on May 10th, 2013 at 6:35 pm

      LOL! Oh, I hate, hate unloading the dishwasher. I’d rather do dishes! :)


  26. Victoria B. posted on May 10, 2013 at 1:23 pm (#)

    Seriously two of my favorite things, Oreos and Chocolate! I can’t wait to try these cookies.


  27. Sheila @ Sweet Baked Life posted on May 10, 2013 at 1:31 pm (#)

    My husband and son are crazy for Oreos, so of course I will be giving these a try for sure! :)


  28. Ashley @ Kitchen Meets Girl posted on May 10, 2013 at 2:57 pm (#)

    I am all about chocolate punching me in the face. And I could definitely go for a few of these right now – along with that glass of wine, because its been a week here, too. Yeah, I TOTALLY get how grounding Jordan from TV is punishment for you, too. I think it’s worse for the moms!


    • Dorothy Kern replied on May 10th, 2013 at 6:33 pm

      TOTALLY. I hope your weekend is better Ashley! Thanks so much. :)


  29. lisa@cookingwithcurls posted on May 10, 2013 at 7:33 pm (#)

    Umm Dorothy, I think you might be an over achiever! Wow…that is a lot of baking for school. I sure hope they appreciate it, because those look amaizng :)


  30. Trish - Mom On Timeout posted on May 10, 2013 at 7:42 pm (#)

    My husband is looking over my shoulder right now eyeing these cookies…can I send him your way???


    • Dorothy Kern replied on May 12th, 2013 at 12:33 pm

      LOL, if only he’d gotten here in time!


  31. Kathy posted on May 11, 2013 at 8:16 am (#)

    Oh my word! These cookies look fabulous! Anything with Oreo’s is going to be wonderful!

    As a former teacher, i can attest to how necessary it is for teacher’s to feel appreciated. I’m sure they felt the love you put into all those treats. I love Oreos, too, but I always feel guilty using them because they contain palm oil. I hope they switch to a sustainable source soon so I can eat them all the time. I really want to try these cookies!


    • Dorothy Kern replied on May 12th, 2013 at 12:24 pm

      Yeah, it would be good if they could just use…regular oil, right!!!
