Homemade Oreo Cookies are soft and delicious chocolate cookies with a sweet cream cheese filling!
These Homemade Oreo Cookies are chewy, chocolate cookies with a heavenly, rich cream cheese filling in between. They are so simple to make and taste a million times better than the store-bought cookies.
Don’t get me wrong, I still love the packaged Oreos you buy at the store, but you just can’t go wrong with a decadent, soft and chocolate homemade version. Especially with the addition of a thick and creamy frosting to perfectly pair with the cookies. 😀
I know boxed cake mixes kind of have a bad rep and when used while baking some people feel it’s not ‘real’ baking or authentic. Of course, anything you make from scratch will probably taste a little better, but when you don’t have the time, cake mixes are perfect to use! Just take these Oreo cookies for example, they are soft, delicious and extra fudgy.
While the Devil’s Food Cake mix is my favorite way to make these, if you’re not the biggest chocolate fan, you can always go a different route. To change things up, you can try other flavors of cake mix. Funfetti, red velvet and vanilla would be just as amazing!
