If you’ve never tried a candy stuffed cookie, it’s time you did! Stuffed cookies are absolutely delightful. I have tried a few different recipes over the years, and there are 2 that I especially love: my Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies, and these Cookies n’ Creme Drops Stuffed Oatmeal Cookies. They’re so good. And so simple to make.

So simple and fun!

Stuffing cookies is so easy…really it’s just as simple as taking a chocolate candy, wrapping cookie dough around it, then baking. The hardest part is waiting for the cookies to bake. 😉

How to stuff these Cookies n’ Creme Stuffed Oatmeal Cookies:

There are 2 ways to make these cookies: you can use the Cookies n’ Creme drops or chunks of the Cookies n’ Creme chocolate bars. When I use the chocolate bars I also like to add a piece to the top of each cookie before baking.

But both methods have you placing the candy in the centre of a cookie dough ball, rolling it together, lightly pressing down, then baking for 8 minutes. It’s really so easy…even the kids can help!
