Oreo Stuffed Double Chocolate Cookies

Oreo5

Good morning! Welcome to my blog on this beautiful Wednesday.

Halloween is just a few days away... have you picked out your costume? Carved the pumpkin? Prepared yourself for what parties you're going to and considered what the earliest time to escape would be? Have you purchased your Halloween candy yet?

Eric and I have indeed picked out our costumes. Eric bought ours a month ago at a discount store that sells damaged goods. Haha. But you'll have to wait and see what we're going to be...

We have carved our pumpkin, but you'll have to wait for that too. :)

As for the parties, we still haven't quite figured that out yet. We know we want to spend as little time as possible at the party that's going to be awkward.

Candy, candy. We don't have any candy yet. What kind of candy should we buy? I vote for caramel apple suckers if they still make those. Or Twix.

Run 001

I've been running a bit lately. Mostly to burn off all of these pumpkin and apple desserts I've been baking. I haven't ran since I ran the 8K in April. A month or two ago I had the urge to run again, so I've been running about twice a week. It's a good workout and harder than aerobics, biking, yoga, etc. I also like running outside; back in the winter I was running on the treadmill and I hated it. I've considered running another race but I'm not sure if I want to sign up for anything just yet. I'm slooowww.

Run 002

It looks like fall here now. Kinda. It's still pretty green out there. These things are falling from the trees everywhere.

Run 003

Are you familiar with this? It's called an Osage Orange, and yes it's edible, although I've never tried one I think I'll leave that up to Bear Grylls. The squirrels love them though, so maybe they are good. I don't like these things because I used to trip on them in the yard all of the time.

Run 004

Black walnuts are falling, too. We used to have people who came into our yard and stole the black walnuts to sell. I don't think mom and dad minded though because they didn't have to worry about mowing over them.

I don't know a lot of people who like black walnuts, but I know that I do... I think I get that from my grandma Mutzie. Do you like black walnuts? I wish I had grandma's black walnut shortbread recipe to share with you all.

Don't these cookies look festive for Halloween? Maybe you could make some for your upcoming (awkward) Halloween parties. These were really good and I don't think it's possible for someone to not like these cookies.

Oreo1

I made up a very chocolate-y cookie batter and then wrapped it around Oreo cookies. After baking and cooling, I simply drizzled the cookies with melted white chocolate and orange candy melts.

A cookie inside of a cookie is always a good thing.

Oreo Stuffed Double Chocolate Cookies

1 cup all purpose flour
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 large egg
3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips, melted
14 Oreos
Melted white chocolate for drizzling (optional)
Melted orange colored chocolate for drizzling (optional)

Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat cookie sheets with cooking spray.

In a medium bowl, sift together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt. In a large mixing bowl, using a mixer on medium speed, beat together butter and sugar until creamy - about 1-2 minutes. Beat in vanilla and egg until combined. Reduce mixer speed to low and beat in dry ingredients until combined. Beat in melted chocolate chips until combined.

Divide dough into 14 balls. Flatten a ball in the palm of your hand and place an Oreo in the center; evenly wrap dough around Oreo. Repeat process with remaining dough and Oreos. Place balls on sheet pans and bake 10 minutes or until puffy and set. Transfer cookies to wire racks to cool.

Drizzle melted white and orange chocolate over cookies.

Makes 14 cookies

  13. Now, you're just showing off! What beauties! But there's no way I would make only 14 cookies. I think I would triple the recipe and leave some of the unbaked cookie balls (not attractive sounding, sorry) in the freezer for emergencies...like 4 pm on a Thursday.

    The answer is no to every single question you asked. I better get moving.

  14. PS That Osage Orange looks like a round brain. That would be appropriate for your Halloween decor.

  18. Yum! The only thing better than a super-chocolatey cookie is one with an oreo inside it!!

  19. A cookie stuffed cookie-very decadent! I make an Oreo stuffed brownie that are a big hit. Not a fan of the black walnuts-the taste was not good, or probably not what I'm used to.

  25. If there were anyone who would come up with a cookie inside a cookie, it's definitely you!

    I'm sooooooo curious about those Halloween costumes. No parties for me. Mom and I are taking my niece and nephew and her boyfriend's grandson to Boo at the Zoo at the Bronx Zoo on Saturday though. I should probably wear a costume so the gorillas don't mistake me as one of their own. :-D

  31. Ok don't take this the wrong way but I sorta hate you. How dare you post this delicious cookie??? Don't you know my butt is fat enough? :)

    Also I cannot wait to see you costumes. Sadly I have never dressed up or went trick or treating...how sad is that! That is what I get for having a crazy religious step-dad...

    Ok sorry for the rant :) Have a great Halloween!
