Double Cookies and Cream Chocolate Cookies

I know, I know. Sounds similar to the Chocolate Oreo Cookies that I made a few weeks ago. But wait...there's more.


After the holidays candy sales are where it's at. I snagged four packages of bunny Peeps for $1. AND I bought two bags of Cookies'n'Creme eggs for a couple bucks, hence the cookies.  I started with a recipe from Baking Bites and substituted the chopped candy eggs for the chocolate chips.

Chocolate Cookies n’ Cream Cookies

Ingredients
  • 2c all purpose flour
  • 1/2c cocoa powder
  • 1/2t salt
  • 1t baking soda
  • 1/2t baking powder
  • 1c butter, room temperature
  • 3/4c sugar
  • 3/4c brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1t vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2c cookies'n'creme chocolate, chopped
  • 1 1/4c Oreos, chopped

Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, sift together flour, cocoa powder, salt, baking soda and baking powder.
  3. In a larger bowl, cream together butter and sugars. Beat in eggs one at a time, followed by vanilla extract. With the mixer on low speed or by hand, stir in the flour mixture, mixing just until no streaks of dry ingredients remain. Stir in chocolate and crushed cookies until evenly distributed.
  4. Drop 1-inch balls of dough onto prepared baking sheet, allowing a little room for cookies to spread.
  5. Bake for 9-11 minutes, until cookies are set at the edges.
  6. Cool on baking sheet for 2-3 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

While these were good, my favorite chocolate cookie base so far has been from the Chocolate Oreo cookies. I have plans to try another chocolate cookie soon with yet another base dough, but with some sort of mint situation happening in them.  In the meantime, if you are looking for a chewy cookie to satisfy that chocolate craving, stick with these.
