Chocolate Peanut Butter Oreo Cookies

Chocolate Peanut Butter Oreo Cookies are the going to make the chocolate peanut butter lovers in your life very happy. These cookies are incredible.

I didn’t realize that when I became a high school sports mom that it would involve so much cooking and baking. For the last two months, I’ve made cookies every weekend for the cross country team. A cross-country tradition is that we give each runner three cookies after the race. The “Cookie Momster” (not a name I would have chosen) gives out a recipe and we all make the same cookies. If it is a home meet, we have about 5 bakers, but if it is an away meet, there are 15 bakers. I’ve gone through a lot of butter, sugar, and vanilla this season.

The recipe that we use is a Heath Bar pudding cookie. It is delicious. The cookies are always the perfect texture and they have a pretty long shelf life. There was a time I would have discounted a cookie with pudding mix in it, but I’ve stopped being such a snob. (I’ve also embraced doctoring a cake mix.) The one thing I will warn you about is that these are not good until they have cooled completely. It’s rare that a cookie doesn’t taste good warm, but these need to. Same goes for my other recipe for Heath Bar Cookies.

I’ve played with the base recipe that the “Cookie Momster” gave me. And I made this chocolate peanut butter Oreo version with it. It is so good. It is a great way to clean out the pantry. Use whatever cookies, chips, or candy you have around.

    Looks good, and pudding mix in cookies makes them so soft and tasty. Makes them seem thicker and richer I think. Good luck to your boys team!
