Oreo Chunk Cookies are perfect for parties, holidays, or for just baking an easy recipe with your family. Since most people won’t have heard of making cookies out of Oreos, they’re a great dessert that will impress your guests.

These cookies are also perfect for dunking in milk or under Vanilla Ice Cream and Chocolate Ganache for a delicious sundae. Even better, make these into ice cream sandwiches, they’re the perfect base for the ultimate summer dessert.



This Oreo Chunk Cookie recipe was inspired by the local favorite Washington D.C. restaurant Wisemiller’s Deli, which has been selling a similar cookie for decades. Many students at nearby Georgetown University list this cookie among their favorites.

Wisey’s Deli has grown from what used to be a local convenience store for kids to get snacks and toiletries and mixers without having to take the shuttle to the grocery store and over the years it grew into a nearby row house to become a sandwich shop.

This cookie has earned a cult following along with the equally famous Chicken Madness Sub Sandwich

Sometimes it can feel like a letdown. You make cookie dough, let it rest and once baked you wonder why your cookies don’t look photoshoot ready like the ones you saw in photos or from the bakery. There is a trick to this! 

This doesn’t affect the flavor of the cookie dough, but it does affect the texture of the cookie as the additional chunks of cookie on the exterior of the cookie add a great chewy yet crispy texture to the cookies.

If you stir all the Oreos into the dough, they’ll be hidden inside the cookie. Your cookies will still be delicious, but not as pretty. This is actually how Wisey’s makes their Oreo Cookies.

If you want your cookies to look like the pictures in this post you can instead add ⅓ of the chunks to your batter, then roll the cookies in the remaining chunks. By rolling the cookie dough into the chunks the cookies end up looking like this:

After making the dough, refrigerate it for 30 minutes to an hour so it’s easier to roll into dough balls. Put the remaining Oreo chunks in a large bowl and roll them on the outside of the cookie dough balls. This slightly different technique makes the cookies so gorgeous.  Rolling the dough balls in Oreos ensures they’re throughout and outside the cookie, which makes them look and taste bakery worthy.


  • Chocolate Chips: Add semisweet or milk chocolate chips to your batter to have an even richer cookie.
  • Baking Chips: Give your cookies bursts of flavor with white chocolate chips, mint chips (great for the holidays!), or salted caramel chips.
  • Melted Chocolate: Dip the cookies halfway in melted chocolate or dip the bottom half of the cookie in chocolate. Microwave either white chocolate chips/white chocolate candy bark or dark chocolate chips in a glass bowl, stirring every 30 seconds until melted.
  • Nuts: Stir in some chopped peanuts, or your favorite nuts, to give the cookies some extra crunch!
  • Flavored Oreos: Swap out the Oreos for your favorite special flavor of Oreo like birthday cake, mint, red velvet, or white Oreos.



How do I soften butter for baking cookies?

Allow the butter to soften at room temperature before mixing. Melted butter will cause the dough to spread and flatten. If the butter is too cold, it won’t cream and form air pockets. Air pockets make your cookies light and fluffy.

How long do I bake Oreo Chunk Cookies?

If you want the cookies to be perfectly chewy, bake them until the edges are set and slightly browned.

How can I keep chewy cookies moist?

To keep these cookies moist, make sure you store them in a closed container. Add a slice of bread to the container to maintain moisture control.

How can I reheat these cookies?

Microwave the cookies for 10-15 seconds before enjoying to bring back a bit of fresh out of the oven flavor.


  • Serve: Keep Oreo Chunk Cookies in a sealed container at room temperature for up to 2 days.
  • Store: You can store your cookies longer in the fridge for up to a week. To get your cookies chewy again, pop in the microwave for about 15 seconds.
  • Freeze: Freeze your cookie dough or baked cookies for up to 2 months in an airtight container. Freeze cookie dough on a baking sheet for an hour before transferring to a freezer bag.

  1. The directions say add egg and egg yolk. Is it just one whole egg and just the yolk of the other one? Can’t wait to try these!

    1. So sorry, this comment got snared in the spam filter somehow! The recipe was updated to reflect two whole eggs in more testing and I forgot to add that in the instructions. Thanks for pointing that out, I updated it. 🙂
