Recipe - "Oreo Awesome Balls" (Guest Post)

I'm going to be traveling for pretty much all of today so I had a friend write up a guest post for a diabetes-inducing dessert he put together. I haven't tried it yet but the result looks deliciously sugary. Give it a gander! Thanks to Dylan for writing this up but no, I don't think your title is deserved.

"Oreo Awesome Balls
By Dylan Phillips, Supreme Lord of Terror
  • Makes 24 gigantic cookies
  • Prep: 25 minutes
  • Cook: 13 minutes
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) softened butter
  • 3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 3 1/2 cups flour (I know, trust me.)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 package Double Stuff Oreo cookies
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a large bowl, cream butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar together with a mixer until well combined. Beat in eggs and vanilla.

In medium bowl, mix the flour, salt, and baking soda. Slowly add to wet ingredients along with chocolate chips until just combined. (Will put up a significant amount of resistance. It'll fight with you.)

With a cookie scoop, form balls with the dough. (Not entirely necessary, but good if you want to be uniform)

Place one ball on top of an Oreo cookie, and another ball on the bottom. Seal edges together by pressing and cupping in hand, or pinching until Oreo cookie is fully enclosed with dough.

Place onto parchment or aluminum lined baking sheets and bake cookies for approximately 13 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool for 5 minutes before transferring to cooling rack."
