I first discovered these Cake Batter Chocolate Chip Cookies on Instagram and instantly had to try them out. They were delicious! I strongly recommend using her recipe but if you happen to forget it, I have followed the Nestle Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough recipe before (minus the nuts because those are not one of my favorite things) and modified the flour portion so that it was 1 1/4 cup of dry cake mix and 1 cup of flour.
Now, life was feeling pretty good with the combination of chocolate chip cookies and cake batter but I was still torn between the cookies and my love of Oreos. I then spotted these while browsing Pinterest (never, ever search for chocolate chip cookie Oreos on Pinterest.)
After they have cooled completely, the end result is heavenly. One time, I had some M&Ms lying around and decided to mix those with the sprinkles and chocolate chips (just to make sure my favorite candy was represented as well!) I now use them every time!
They are a crowd pleaser for holiday functions! Just add color coordinated sprinkles and M&Ms (red and green for Christmas, pink and red for Valentines, red, white and blue for the 4th of July) and use white chocolate chips instead of milk chocolate.
Eating one is probably the equivalent of eating 4 cookies total, but I promise it won't disappoint.
Happy Holiday Week! Let me know if you make the cookies. I would love to hear how they turn out.
