Monster-sized Chocolate Chip Oreo Cookies

These cookies were so large they should have had their own gravitational pull.

When I first saw these cookies on Tastespotting I knew I had to make them.  The question was: for whom?  My roommates have been experiencing a sugar overload in the past few weeks thanks to all the leftover cupcakes I’ve been bringing home.  Our house cupcake count is ranging somewhere between 30-40 cupcakes, which I think is an exceptionally impressive number.  Anyways, I wanted to expand the sugar appreciation beyond the walls of my house and find some new recipients for my baking.

And so, I made these for my multimedia journalism class.  A few people in the class have been bugging me since the beginning of the term to bring in some sort of dessert, so I thought I should finally oblige.  As the end of term creeps closer (only a week left now!) I get lured deeper into an obsessive baking fixation.  Baking is my means of procrastination and, whether my schedule likes it or not, I intend to spend at least 12 hours baking within the next week.

But back to the cookies.  They are HUGE!  In accordance with the recipe, I took an Oreo cookie (the double stuff variety, of course) and plopped a scoop of chocolate chip cookie dough on the top and bottom of the Oreo.  Then I smushed the dough around the Oreo, completely hiding it and creating a dough ball that was approximately the size of a small softball.  The finished result was a cookie so large you had to eat it like a hamburger.

Make these for kids birthday parties if you dare.

Wicked co-ordination between cookie and oven mitts

  1. i used the “mini” oreos same taste but bite size so you can eat more faster… cut back the baking time to 7/8 mins tho, also… can be done by using the cookie bar method, using chopped oero cookies mixed into the batter, great for bake sale, sold two pans in record time, PTA begs for more every event…
