Cookies and Cream Chocolate Cookies




Oreos can really be dangerous.  Have you seen all the recipes containing Oreos?  You take a already awesome cookie and turn it into something else completely different but just as good. Or even better.  Oh yes, dangerous cookie indeed.


Cookies and Cream Cookie Recipe
Adapted from Picky Palate

2 sticks butter, softened
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 tbsp. pure vanilla extract
1 3/4 cup flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips
1 cup cocoa powder
15 whole Oreos, finely ground in a food processor.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray a baking sheet with cooking spray or parchment paper.

Beat butter and sugars until well combined, add eggs and vanilla, beating until well combined.

Place flour, baking soda, cookie crumbs, cocoa and salt into a large bowl.  Add to wet ingredients along with chocolate chips until just combined. Batter will be very thick.  Scoop by teaspoons onto prepared baking sheet about 1 inch apart from each other. Bake for about 10 minutes until cooked through.  Transfer to cooling rack.

    I love "chocolate!" "Xocai Healthy Chocolate" is both DIABETIC friendly and CAFFEINE FREE. Contrary to popular belief, “chocolate is quite low in caffeine.”
    There is less caffeine in a 2 oz bar than you find in your favorite cup of decaf. "Xocai" is also "sweetened with raw cane juice;" which is a “low glycemic sweetener”
    that makes “Xocai Dark Chocolate diabetic friendly.”

  3. I have Oreos in the cupboard right now and I find it impossible not to want to indulge every time I walk into the kitchen, lol. I would eat the entire batch of these myself.
