Easy Cookies & Cream Oreo Pudding Cookies
When it comes to cookies I am all about a nice soft cookie. Anyone who prefers a crunchy cookie over a soft one, I respect your opinion, but you’re wrong.
How to Make Oreo Pudding Cookies
Once I heard about pudding cookies I was in heaven. Don’t be fooled by the name because these cookies don’t actually include mixed up pudding. You simply use the dry instant pudding mix powder when mixing the ingredients.
Apparently, that powder must just be some magical cookie powder, because it’s what keeps the cookies soft! It still blows my mind that I just found out about this secret just over a year ago.
The Perfect Cookies & Cream Cookies
We’ll just keep on the train of fun facts about me, an I’ll tell you that I’m also obsessed with anything Oreo flavored. I don’t know what it is about those little sandwich cookies, but I could eat them every day and never get sick of them.
When I found out they make an Oreo instant pudding mix, I knew what had to be done.
A Cookies & Cream Cookies too Good to Save
These may not be the prettiest cookies in on the block, but hey didn’t your parents always tell you to never judge a book by it’s cover? What these Oreo pudding cookies lack in appearance, they make up for in flavor.
I think we broke a record in our house for the quickest turn around time on a whole batch of cookies. All of them were gone in a blink of an eye. My boyfriend even requested I throw some in the freezer to save some for him when he comes to visit this weekend.
He’s lucky I was nice enough to do that because there definitely wouldn’t have been any left by the weekend. Little does he know I plan on hijacking some of what I saved for him once he gets here 😉
Oreo Pudding Cookies Tricks and Tips
Back to little secrets of this recipe here’s another one of my new favorite little tricks.
Don’t be afraid to add the coffee to the recipe. Trust me, I’m not a huge coffee lover, my Starbucks orders usually consist of something that’s mostly milk and sugar.
So, I too was hesitant at first to add the coffee, because who would want to ruin this masterpiece with the bitter taste of coffee? That’s not the case at all though! The coffee simply brings out the flavor of the chocolate and makes it this delicious strong and rich chocolate flavor.
There’s not a hint of a coffee taste in sight!

Cookies & Cream Oreo Pudding Cookies
- 1/2 cup butter, softened
- 2/3 cup brown sugar, packed
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 egg
- 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder (I used Hershey's Special Dark)
- 1 box of Oreo Cookies N' Cream Instant Pudding Mix (not sugar-free)
- 1 tablespoon strong brewed coffee or water
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 1/2 cups Hershey’s Cookies N' Cream baking chips, divided (or just mix equal parts white and semi-sweet chocolate chips)
- Using an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream butter, and both sugars. Mix in vanilla and egg until smooth. Mix in cocoa powder and pudding mix ( don't make the pudding, just use the powder mix). Beat in coffee or water, flour, and baking soda until well blended. Stir in 1 1/4 cups of baking chips.
- Drop cookie dough balls (I used a 1 1/2 tablespoon cookie scoop, then made a few with an ice cream scoop) onto a parchment paper lined cookie sheet (you can also use a Silpat). Press a few of the remaining chocolate chips into each cookie. Cover with plastic wrap and chill for at least 2 hours. (Chilling the just the bowl of dough will need 4 hours of chill time, and it will make it harder to scoop out the cookies.)
- Preheat oven to 350°F. Remove prepared cookie sheet from the freezer. Bake for 10-13 minutes (I baked the big cookies for 14 minutes), until the edges lose their sheen. I like my cookies slightly under-done, so I usually bake for the minimum amount of time.
- If you can't find the Oreo Pudding mix, of course, you can still make these, they just won't really be cookies & cream. Any pudding mix will work, it will just change the flavor of the cookies
- The coffee in the recipe helps make bring out a strong rich chocolate flavor. You won't actually taste the coffee at all.
- Don't skip the chill time because it will cause the cookies to spread too much while cooking.
