Oreo Cookies & Cream Pudding Cookies

These Oreo cookies & cream pudding cookies are soft-baked thanks to the package of dry pudding mix inside the cookie dough. No crispiness anywhere in these cookies. They’re also loaded with all the good stuff. Oreos, cookies & cream chocolate candy bars, and the Oreo pudding mix.
Oreo Cookies & Cream Pudding Cookies

I’ve noticed that not all stores carry the Oreo pudding mix. I always have good luck finding it at Wal-Mart so check there if you can’t find it at your local grocery store.
If you can’t find it for some reason then I would not substitute it with another pudding mix. Just wait until you can find a box of it. It is very common and I see it at almost every store I shop at. 


  1. 3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) butter, softened
  2. 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  3. 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  4. 2 large eggs
  5. 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  6. 2 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  7. 1 box (4.2 oz) Cookies & Cream Instant Pudidng Mix
  8. 1 teaspoon baking soda
  9. 1/4 teaspoon salt
  10. 1 cup chopped Oreos
  11. 2 bars (1.55 oz each) Hershey Cookies & Cream candy bars, roughly chopped

Heat oven to 350F. Prepare a cookie sheet by lining with parchment paper or a silpat liner.
In a large bowl, or bowl of a stand mixer, blend together the butter, brown sugar, and sugar until light and fluffy. Add in the eggs and blend until completely combined. Add in the vanilla. Blend again. 
In another bowl, combine the flour, pudding mix, baking soda, and salt and stir with a wire whisk to break up any clumps. Add into the creamed mixture and mix until combined. Stir in the Oreos and candy bar chunks with a wooden spoon. 
Roll dough into balls (slightly smaller than the size of a golf ball) and place on the baking sheet. Bake in the oven for 8-10 minutes, or until set. Let cool on cookie sheet for about 10 minutes and then remove to wire rack to cool completely.
Cookies will still be very pale even when cooked. I have never had to bake mine for longer than 9 minutes. 
The cookies do not spread much while baking. You can leave them puffier OR gently press a few additional chopped Oreo pieces and candy bar pieces onto the tops of the cookies. They will gently spread out slightly if you do this.
