This recipe is loosely based mostly off the favored chocolate Oreo cookie provided on the ever-changing Crumbl cookie weekly lineup.

Since I hardly ever frequent a Crumbl’s precise retailer, I made a decision to give you a do-it-yourself model. GOOD CHOICE. This cookie is wonderful.

Along with the same old cookie dough components, we’re additionally including cocoa powder and a great deal of Oreo cookie crumbs. We have to talk about each for a second.

Cocoa Powder: you need to use pure, unsweetened, Dutch-process, or black cocoa powder for this recipe. Every sort of cocoa will change the outcomes of the cookie only a bit. Utilizing daily unsweetened cocoa powder will lend a light-weight chocolate taste and colour to the cookie. Dutch-process cocoa will enrich the cocoa taste and deepen the colour a bit. And black cocoa powder will give main Oreo vibes with further darkish colour and intense chocolate taste.

The cookies you see within the footage right here on this publish had been made with Hershey’s particular darkish cocoa (which is principally Dutch-process cocoa).

Assembling cookie dough with butter, eggs, sugar, flour, cocoa powder, and oreo cookie crumbs.

You’ll need one customary (14.3-ounce) bundle of Oreos for this recipe. Depart no complete Oreo behind. Grind the complete bundle into crumbs.

I exploit a meals processor for this job. The feel needs to be fantastic crumbs – a number of coarse items right here and there are okay, however keep away from large chunks of cookie.

I’ve not used pre-ground Oreo cookie items for this recipe. Many occasions the prepackaged crumbs are floor so finely (resembling sand), and so they would possibly alter the result of the cookie, each in texture and taste.

Classically Massive Cookies

Crumbl cookies from the shop are actually large. You can also make the cookies on this recipe as large or small as you want.

I measured 1/4 cup (71 g) dough for every cookie. These cookies profit from being below baked simply barely, so keep watch over the baking time relying on the dimensions of cookies you’re making. The perimeters ought to look set however you need the middles just below finished.

In case your cookies are spreading too flat, enhance the baking temperature by 25 levels F and/or add a number of extra tablespoons flour to the dough. In case your cookies are staying mounded with out flattening sufficient, lower the baking temperature by 25 levels (or subsequent time, weight the components or measure the flour with a lighter hand and don’t pack it into the measuring cup).

The middle of the cookies could keep mounded barely. That’s okay! After the cookies cool for a couple of minutes, gently press the center of the cookies with a flat spatula for a fair thickness. This helps the frosting have an ideal plateau for the very best software.

Why That is the Good Frosting

The frosting for these chocolate Oreo Crumbl cookies is completely thick and creamy with simply the lightest trace of cream cheese.

The cream cheese taste shouldn’t be overt. It’s delicate and provides a obligatory and scrumptious creaminess to the frosting.

The frosting might be unfold on the cookies with an offset spatula or piped with a circle tip.

Whereas these cookies are scrumptious instantly after being frosted, they’re extremely tasty chilled. The frosting units up and the middles fudgify a bit extra after being refrigerated.

I’ve additionally frozen the frosted cookies with wonderful outcomes. I freeze and thaw them in a single layer because of the mushy frosting.

My do-it-yourself model of this chocolate Oreo Crumbl cookie differs from the one offered in shops in a few methods. The unique Oreo Crumbl cookie is making an attempt onerous to resemble an precise Oreo cookie – black colour with a much less candy cookie crumb. My recipe produces a cookie that’s lighter in colour however has very outstanding Oreo taste (because of the precise Oreos within the cookie dough. It is usually much less dry and far fudgier than the unique. So is it a precise copycat? No. I’d wish to suppose it’s higher (however acknowledge I’d get destroyed within the feedback by rabid Crumbl followers). 😬😂😉

Actually, if you wish to ditch the toppings fully, I can fortunately inform you that that the plain cookie by itself is downright unbelievable. Form of like a chocolate Oreo brownie in cookie kind. Yum…YUM!
