Valentine’s Day week is here and since these cookies were a hit in my office around Christmas time, I wanted to share this recipe again. The surprise Oreo in the middle is honestly the best part, it just melts in your mouth.
This recipe is just a basic chocolate chip cookie recipe. But instead of covering the Oreo and placing it in on a baking sheet, I decided to utilize my muffin tins and bake the cookies in there. I put 1 tbsp. of batter on the bottom of the muffin cup. Then I pressed the Oreo into the bottom. Then I put another 1tbsp. of batter over the top.
These cookies come out very THICK when you bake them in the muffin cups. They are hearty and delicious and if you eat the whole thing, it only counts as 1 cookie…right?!
