Candy Cane Oreo Chocolate Chunk Cookies

I had so much fun developing this massive cookie with all kinds of goodness packed inside. I have teamed up with my good friend Maria of Two Peas and Their Pod today to share with you two amazing Oreo recipes that will be perfect for your Holiday baking this month! Maria is using the Gingerbread Oreos, “Gingerbread Oreo Blondies” and I chose the Candy Cane Oreos for my cookies. Can’t go wrong with either of these right?!

If you haven’t tried these Candy Cane Oreos, you are in for a treat. You definitely must get a hold of them. They have just the right amount of peppermint cream and when mixed in the cookie dough, it turned the most lovely red. So festive!

Aren’t they pretty?!

You know that I love my chocolate chunks, I found this great bloc chocolate at Trader Joes, but any variety will work.

Now that’s a lovely sight to see πŸ™‚

Cream your butter and sugars to start.


Add your egg.

Time for the dry ingredients!

Add those gorgeous chocolate chunks.

Β ….and those fabulous Candy Cane Oreos.

Gorgeous right?!

Try baking these in a muffin top pan, talk about a gorgeous cookie! They work as a drop cookie too πŸ™‚

Perfect for any cookie exchange or for gift giving. Enjoy!

    These look awesome, and so do the Gingerbread Oreo Blondies. What do you like to bring to a cookie exchange? I know not everyone likes mint, or nuts, or coconut…the list goes on…what’s a great crowd-pleaser? Thanks!

    Oh wow, I wish they sold all the festive Oreo’s in the UK! These look so delicious!

    These look beyond yummy! I haven’t seen those Oreos in my grocery store, but I’ll definitely have to keep an eye out for them to make this recipe :).

  17. 17

    These look absolutely fantastic! I always love your Oreo recipes, and I think we may even get these peppermint ones in Canada. I’ll definitely have to check it out so I can try these.

    I absolutely love your site! One of my very good friends just purchased your cookbook and she’s been raving about it all weekend. (It’s on my Santa list) πŸ˜‰

    Thanks for sharing such awesome recipes. I love a site where recipes are overly complicated. Makes cooking and baking much much easier.

    What a funny Oreo version!! Very cool! Don’t think we can get that here in Germany…

  21. 21

    Love this! You sure are making my holidays brighter. First of all, I never knew about Candy Cane Oreos before reading this recipe. So color me happy! And second of all, I just bought your cookbook as a Christmas gift, and it is even better than I could have imagined. Although, now I’ll have to buy another one as a gift, because I’m keeping this one for myself! Thanks for everything!

  22. 22

    How fun are these?! Love it. I’m asking for a muffin top pan for Christmas. Do you use yours often?

    I have to tell you that I always admire your pretty KitchenAid whenever it’s in your shots. Mine is the white beast and she does all right, but isn’t about to win any beauty contests.

    I haven’t even seen these Oreos yet, but I do have the Trader Joe’s version, which I’m guessing is pretty similar.

    That dough looks good enough to eat;)

    I’m bringing these to a cookie swap today. I couldn’t find the candy cane Oreos at target so I did half mint green Oreos and have red holiday Oreos so I still god the red color and mint flavor. Did yours come out really really crispy? They taste delicious but they’re so crispy. I think I expected them to be more chewy? What is it in a cookie recipe that makes it more crispy than chewy? I’m going to take pictures of my final product and wrapping and post them on my blog this week. I’ll credit your blog for the recipe. Thanks so much!

      Mine were more crispy too. I even baked some for fewer minutes, but they still were crispy (just not as crispy).

    Hi Jenny,
    Help! I wanted to make these cookies for our cookie exchange this weekend, but our local stores have not stocked them yet. Any ideas for what I could use as a substitiute? Thanks. I’m so disappointed right now πŸ™

      Francesca says:

      Do you have an Aldi nearby? That’s where I found my cookies. They aren’t “Oreo” brand, but they are essentially the same…Candy Cane Cookie Sandwiches.

    Shelly says:

    I want to make these, but I’m having a hard time finding the candy cane Oreos. Would these taste just as good using the holiday Oreos?

    Brittany C says:

    Hi Jenny, so where did you find peppermint oreos?? I cannot find them ANYWHERE! It’s so weird. So I ended up using my candy cane Joe-Joe’s to make these, which is fine, but they are more expensive, and I like to just have those around for the occasional treat. πŸ™‚

    Traci says:

    Love these cookies… I could not find the Candy Cane oreos but instead did one batch with the Red Oreos, and one batch with the Mint Oreos and both were great! Thanks – heading to a cookie exchange now!!

    Tracy says:

    Hi Jenny-
    Can you tell me how many cookies I should get out of this recipe if I am using a cookie sheet vs. a muffin top pan?

    Just made these, but NOWHERE in Branson, Missouri can you get the peppermint oreo. I settled for the mint. They’re not as pretty, but make your breath smell good. πŸ™‚

    Have I already told you how much I love these cookies? I’ve made them several times, double stuffed Oreos and regular chocolate chips suffice in a pinch. They are hubby’s favorite cookies and I just got the KitchenAid mixer, these cookies were his 1st request.
