Addictive Recipes from a Self-Taught Baker

Cookies ‘n Cream Cookies

How delicious are Cookies ‘N’ Creme chocolate bars? Crunchy chocolate cookie bits speckled throughout creamy white chocolate… yum.

Now, how delicious would cookies n creme bars be melted inside a cookie?!

Ever since I made my Chewy Butterfinger Cookies, I knew I had to recreate the whole candy-inside-cookie ordeal and bake up something just as fabulous.

I bought a couple king sized Cookies ‘n’ Creme bars the other day, chopped them up, and threw them into the same basic drop cookie recipe.  I added some white chocolate chips on top because I favor chunky cookies with a lot of texture goin’ on.

These cookies are SO easy. 🙂

Cookies 'n Cream Cookies


  • 1 and 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 king size Hershey's Cookies 'n' Creme bars, chopped
  • 3/4 cup white chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Combine flour, baking soda, and salt in small bowl and set aside. In a separate bowl, using a hand-held mixer or stand alone mixer, beat the butter and sugar together until light and creamy. Beat in egg until just combined. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in chopped cookies n creme pieces by hand. Do not overmix.
  3. Drop by slightly rounded tablespoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheet. Stick 4-5 white chocolate chips on top of the cookie dough ball. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned. Allow to cool and enjoy!

  1. These look simply beautiful! I adore Hershey’s cookies and cream and by incorporating them into cookies is a genius idea 😀

  2. Love cookies and cream flavored everything!

  3. All these cookies look soooo amazing!!!! I don’t know which to pick but since the cookies n cream ones brought me here, I must say they look out-of-this-world yummy!!

  4. you are right. candy inside cookies is the best thing ever! and another reason i raid the after holiday candy sales!

  5. I used to love these candy bars! Haven’t eaten one in so long. Your cookies are positively delectable! Candy cookies rule.

  6. Congrats on the food gawker acceptance! It’s funny how obsessed we get with having them “accept” our photos, but I am right there with you!

  7. Thanks for verifying about the brown sugar!! I poured the flour in from my canister (which is how I usually measure it), but I will make sure next time to double check my flour measurement. Regardless, the cookies were super yummy and I got lots of compliments. Thanks for a great recipe!!!

  8. Made these today. Very good even though I accidentally put 2 giant 4 oz bars instead of 2 king sized bars.. Oopsie. Extra sweet but still good -xo

    • Kara – sometimes a little extra sweetness isn’t a bad thing 😉 So glad you enjoyed them despite the cookie bar overload!

  9. Was looking for this exact recipe because my boyfriend hates chocolate and will ONLY eat the cookies and creme. So I’ll be trying these for Valentines day, thanks!

    • So glad to hear that Leslie! I love these cookies – I haven’t made these since last year. I have to change that because they are a favorite of mine!

  10. Hi sally! Is it ok if i used the regular salted butter instead of the unsalted as unsalted butter is pricey where I live. I would just have to omit the salt called for in this recipe?

  11. Hi Sally! I’m busy looking thru your cookies recipes too gather up for my Christmas tray’s this year…….I know my tray’s will be extra special this year cause if my cookies turn out half as good as your’s looks then they will be very well recived……..I just also wanted too ask if all your cookie recipes can be doubled without any problems?Thanks for a very AWSOME blog too go to when I need a recipe or two……..Hope you had a nice safe Thanksgiving………

    • Hi Renee! I can safely say that all of the cookie recipes on my blog may be doubled. I do it all the time! I hope everyone loves the cookie trays Renee.

  12. Thank you for such a quick reply…………I’ll let you know but i’m sure there gonna be loved how can they not be …….

  13. love these cookies. i made them twice already and they were a hit! i just had one question. if i wanted to make a little more but not double the recipe entirely how would i do that? like if i just wanted a few extra but not 60.

  14. Everyone LOVED these cookies! Cookies N Cream in a cookie, what’s not to love? When I made them they came out as thicker (yet still soft and delicious) and small cookies, they didn’t spread as nicely as yours. What did I do wrong? And, by don’t over mix, is it the same standard 20 mixes that goes for muffins?

    I recently stumbled upon your website and now I’m SUPER obsessed (have already made three things). I will most definitely be purchasing your recipe book when it comes out!!

    • Hey Ashley! I’m so glad that you love my blog and recipes! Thanks for being excited for my cookbook too. That means a lot! It sounds like you may have overmeasured the flour. Though your cookies still tasted wonderful (so glad about that!) – it sounds like they did not spread because there was too much flour. Try to spoon the flour into your measuring cup, rather than scooping and/or packing it in.

  15. Hi Sally,

    First off, congratulations on everything in your life! Cookbook, engagement, and everything in between! I have made so many things from your site and all have been a hit! I am waiting for these cookies to come out of the oven but like the previous commenter, mine did not spread well. I spoon my flour everytime and the dough was very tough when I mixed it- any idea what may have happened?

    Looking forward to kore yummy treats when I get your cookbook next month!

    All the best to you from Canada!

    • Hi Kate! Try using a little less flour next time – or you could even add in an extra egg yolk for extra moisture. I use this “base” recipe quite often and haven’t found it to be dry. Thank you for all the kinds words, too. I appreciate it so so much!

  16. hey! can i use 1/2 cup of white granulated sugar and 1/4 cup of brown sugar instead of all white sugar? i really like the flavor of brown sugar

  17. Hi Sally! Love your blog so much, I really want to make these cookies because I absolutely LOVE cookies and cream Hershey bars! How could I make these cookies soft and thick like your regular chocolate chip cookies or peanut butter cookies?

    • These cookies already ARE super soft! Or you can always use the other cookie dough recipe bases and add copies and cream bars.

  18. Hi Sally

    These look amazing. They are my next bake! Just one question. How many grams in a king size Cookies and Cream bar? I live in England and while they do a large bar it is not a huge one ( though I wish it was! ;0) ). Thank you xxx

  19. Hi Sally! Just want to know, Is it okay to use baking soda without acidic ingredient? Coz some others say it must have an acid if you’ll use baking soda. Thanks! 🙂

  20. I made these, and they’re great! I made them a second time removing the white chocolate and sub with macadamia nuts. Also used honey instead of sugar.

  21. Hi Sally! I know you stress the importance of chilling your cookie dough for a lot of recipes, but I noticed this one does not. Do you recommend chilling for a short period of time or does it not make a difference in this cookie recipe? Thank you! 

    • Doesn’t make too much of a difference with this particular cookie dough– some doughs are thick and sturdy enough to not require some chilling.

  22. hey Sally,

    I’ve made these cookies twice now and both times they dont spread as nicely as yours have. they come out quite lumpy looking. I was wondering if you have the amount of flour in grams that should be used for this recipe? or if you have any ideas on how I can fix it that would be much appreciated! the cookies were still delicious – they just didn’t look very presentable.
