Servings 10


*For the cookies:*

  • 1 box of red velvet cake mix Duncan Hines is my go-to
  • 1/2 cup of melted butter at room temperature
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup of granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup of all-purpose flour
  • 2 eggs at room temperature
  • 10 Oreos

*For the frosting:*

  • 1/2 cup of butter at room temperature
  • 4 oz of cream cheese at room temperature
  • 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 3 cups of powdered sugar
  • 2-3 tablespoons of heavy cream or milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/3 cup of chopped Oreos


*For the cake:*

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a stand mixer, combine the cake mix, melted butter, granulated sugar, vanilla, and eggs. Mix on low until well combined.
  • Add the flour and mix until just combined.
  • Chill the cookie dough in the refrigerator for 15-20 minutes.
  • Use a large cookie dough scoop to grab about 1/4 cup of dough per cookie. Flatten it into a round circle, place an Oreo in the center, and encase the cookie with the dough.
  • Arrange the cookies on the prepared sheet, about 2 inches apart, and gently press the dough down.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the edges are set. Cool on a rack before decorating.

*For the frosting:*

  • In a stand mixer, beat softened butter and cream cheese until smooth.
  • Add vanilla extract, salt, powdered sugar, and 2 tablespoons of heavy cream or milk. Mix until smooth.
  • Adjust the consistency with additional cream or powdered sugar.

*For assembly:*

  • Once the cookies have cooled completely, add 3-4 tablespoons of frosting on top.
  • Spread it evenly and sprinkle chopped Oreos on top.
  • Serve immediately or refrigerate for up to 3 days.
