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. If you’re a fan of Oreos and cookies & cream then you will love these Oreo pudding cookies.

Cookies n’ cream is easily one of my favorite dessert combos. Along with peanut butter & chocolate of course! I remember refusing to eat Oreos as a little girl because they would always turn my teeth black with the crumbs… And if you know me at all you know that I have a slight obsession with teeth.
I wish I still felt this way about Oreos because it would probably save me tons of calories. I can resist Oreos except for those darn mint Oreos. So stinking good. Oh, and these Oreo pudding cookies are irresistible too. Just ask my kids how fast they ate them all, haha
My kids (and husband too) know that if they don’t brush twice a day and floss & mouth rinse every night then they’ll be in trouble. Not like trouble trouble, but more like “get back in that bathroom and do it right now” trouble.
These Oreo cookies & cream pudding cookies are soft-baked thanks to the package of dry pudding mix inside the cookie dough. No crispiness anywhere in these cookies. They’re also loaded with all the good stuff. Oreos, cookies & cream chocolate candy bars, and the Oreo pudding mix.
I’ve noticed that not all stores carry the Oreo pudding mix. I always have good luck finding it at Wal-Mart so check there if you can’t find it at your local grocery store.
If you can’t find it for some reason then I would not substitute it with another pudding mix. Just wait until you can find a box of it. It is very common and I see it at almost every store I shop at.
Seriously, look at that dough! How could a cookie not be completely delicious when it comes from that?! I just hope you have more self control than my kids and I have because it is hard to resist taking a scoop or two of that dough.
If you want some extra pretty cookies press some additional chopped Oreos and chopped candy bar pieces on top of the dough balls before or after baking.
I actually prefer pressing the extra cookie pieces onto the cookies after they come out of the oven. These cookies don’t spread much so as you press the cookie crumbles into the cookie, it spreads slightly which creates a really almost perfect looking cookie.
Tips for making Oreo Cookies & Cream Pudding Cookies
- If you don’t want to buy the bigger package of Oreo cookies, buy a smaller $1 snack pack of the mini Oreos. This is what I do and it’s the perfect amount for the cookie dough as well as a few chopped pieces to garnish the tops with.
- You just want to roughly chop the Oreo cookies. These cookies are so good with larger chunks of Oreo through out them so be sure to not ground them up into super fine crumbs.
- These cookies are very pale. Do not judge if the cookies are done by the color of them. They will be very pale but still cooked.
