I’m a candy bar lover, there’s no secret about that. I also adore peanut butter cookies, so adding a little chocolate candy bar to said cookie is a truly delicious combination. These are great for the holidays and perfect for impressing friends and relatives!

While I think topping a peanut butter cookie is quite yummy, I’ll be honest, seeing some of the desserts that are stuffed with other desserts don’t look very appetizing to me. An Oreo cookie is amazing on its own, as is a chocolate chip cookie. But there’s something about baking an Oreo inside of a chocolate chip cookie that makes my stomach feel weird. I think they are two completely different types of cookies, so putting them together just seems like flavor overload and something would get lost in the translation. Maybe it’s just me.

But I don’t feel that way about these. These are spectacular. Just the right amount of pizazz to add to a plain peanut butter cookie. I hope you like them!

      Hi Arlene. Honestly I didn’t record how many, sorry! That pan in the photo holds 24, but it’s been a while since I made them so I can’t remember if I did more than one. I guess I’ve just never worried about how many there were LOL

    If you have not tried the Oreo cookie and chocolate chip cookie you should YUMMY also try taking the Oreo cookie bake them into chewy brownies cut and wrap them in your chocolate chip dough and bake them again.
    The result is cookie heaven. OK a full blown sugar buzz too. The fact is these cookies only take one cookie to satisfy your taste buds for days.
