Oreo cookies & cream pudding cookies are thick, super soft thanks to the pudding mix in the dough, and totally addictive! Cookies n cream chocolate candy bars, Oreo pudding mix, and Oreo cookies are all in these cookies.
In a large bowl, or bowl of a stand mixer, blend together the butter, brown sugar, and sugar until light and fluffy. Add in the eggs and blend until completely combined. Add in the vanilla. Blend again.
In another bowl, combine the flour, pudding mix, baking soda, and salt and stir with a wire whisk to break up any clumps. Add into the creamed mixture and mix until combined. Stir in the Oreos and candy bar chunks with a wooden spoon.
Roll dough into balls (slightly smaller than the size of a golf ball) and place on the baking sheet. Bake in the oven for 8-10 minutes, or until set. Let cool on cookie sheet for about 10 minutes and then remove to wire rack to cool completely.
* Cookies will still be very pale even when cooked. I have never had to bake mine for longer than 9 minutes.
The cookies do not spread much while baking. You can leave them puffier OR gently press a few additional chopped Oreo pieces and candy bar pieces onto the tops of the cookies. They will gently spread out slightly if you do this.
