malted milk chocolate cookies and cream cookies

Am I too late to jump on the cookie in a cookie bandwagon?

I mean, I did discover via this Buzzfeed quiz  yesterday (so, obviously it must be true) that I am a late twenty-something year old trapped in a fifty year old’s body vocabulary.

So five years ago while everyone else was busy stuffing cookies/chocolate bars/brownies into cookies, I was probably still using words like “rad” and “phat” and making sour cream casseroles.




Also, I was living under the rock called “the first two years of med school”. Not trying to make excuses, but it is what it is.

Hopefully you all can overlook my lameness and MAKE THESE. Because they. are. good. Really.

Stuffed with oreos (the Whole Foods brand kind…which I actually like better), milk chocolate chips, and malted milk powder they are gooey on the inside, chewy all around, with perfect crispy edges and lots of chocolate cookie crunch.

Compromise? You get a batch of these into your life and I promise to try to use the phrase “on fleek” in a sentence today.

Oh look, I just did. #Winning.


But just, feel free to send me a few of your “extras”, mmkay? It’s only fair.


I actually did share a few of these with my Leftovers Club partner, Kathia, who writes the blog Basic N Delicious!

Let me tell you, it was not easy to pry them out of the.boy’s hands but it was really for the best that we did not eat all three dozen ourselves. At least, according to our skinny jeans.

Hope you enjoyed them as much as we did, Kathia!

And check out the deliciousness that the other Leftovers Club members are sharing today!


Malted Milk Chocolate Cookies and Cream Cookies
These malted milk chocolate cookies and cream cookies scream FUN!! One bite and you'll feel like you're a kid again.
Yield: 36 cookies
  • 4 oz cream cheese, softened
  • ½ cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1½ cups all purpose flour
  • ½ cup malted milk powder
  • ¾ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 20 Oreos (or other chocolate sandwich cookies), coarsely chopped
  • 1 cup milk chocolate chips
  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream together the cream cheese and butter until thoroughly combined and smooth, about 3 minutes on medium-high speed. Add in the brown sugar and egg and mix for another 3 minutes, until light and fluffy. Beat in the vanilla until well combined.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, malted milk powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Add to the cookie batter and mix until just combined. Add the chopped cookies and chocolate chips to the cookie dough and fold in by hand. Refrigerate the cookie dough for at least one hour or overnight.
  3. Heat oven to 350F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  4. Scoop the dough into 2 tbsp-ish scoops and place on the lined baking sheet, leaving about 1½ inches in-between cookies. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the edges begin to brown while the insides are still gooey. Let cool before serving. Repeat with remaining cookie dough.

  1. This looks like the ultimate pick-me-up cookie. I’m making a double batch. 🙂

  2. Johanna GGG says:

    looks amazing – this is the sort of decadence I want so much but can’t bring myself to make just for us – so if you would like to send me some that would be great – otherwise I need to wait for an occasion

  3. They look heavenly and must be addictive!

  4. I have been eyeing this cookie recipe! And while I’ve definitely put my fair share of Oreos into cookies, I may be the only person who hasn’t baked with malt powder before…

  5. Barbara says:

    Well, that brought back some memories! We used to drink malted milkshakes when I was a kid. Didn’t even know malted milk powder was still around! (Or…I guess I never looked!) Your cookies definitely look luscious and decadent!

  6. Oh, man these cookies. They’re kinda screaming THURSDAY to me right now. I mean, malted milk? oreos?? These are like the world’s most perfect loaded cookies. 😉

  7. Monica says:

    What an intriguing recipe. I do make malted milk chocolate cookies (my husband is a big fan) but don’t think I’ve done any cookie in cookies yet. I’ll be thinking about this all day now! Looks great and texture sounds so good!

  8. Gahhh, malted milk is my weakness. And I just killed a package of the new thin oreos a few days ago. So you’re obviously speaking to me, whether you speak like a 50 year old or a 12 year old.

  9. Mary Frances says:

    This is frickin on fleek. My goodness, I just want to stuff my face with these stuffed cookies because the more stuffing going on, the better. (please tell me that’s alright) <3 this recipe and seriously, this week is all.the.cookies. pinned!

  10. I could totally go for one of these for breakfast. I bet they pair nicely with coffee. Is that strange? I just never realized how badly I wanted a malted milk chocolate cookies and cream cookie until I saw these!!

  11. Ginger Stark says:

    Now, that is a cookie!

  12. Heather says:

    YUM! There can never be too many cookie recipes. We actually have a box of Whole Foods Oreos in our pantry right now!

  13. Julia says:

    Oh girl, I would LOVE it if you continued using the words phat and rad. They’re pretty tubular, just like a great sour cream casserole. 😉 I’m loving this malted milk idea you’ve got going on, and the whole cookies n cream thing is straight up my alley! I’ll hop on the cookie bandwagon with ya, sister – bring deez phat cookies!

  14. SallyBR says:

    This sounds simply too amazing to be true! Genius!

  15. Pam says:

    Now those are some RAD looking cookies. YUM.

  16. Honestly, who can keep up with what the youths of today are saying/doing??

    But seriously, these cookies are killing me. Dying. Must have them.

  17. Meg says:

    I’ll take ten, please. Oooh, yum!

  18. These look FABULOUS! Loving the malted milk powder and milk chocolate and oreos (so like, everything). Saw the ones you linked to from JTB earlier and they’ve been on my mind ever since 🙂 (And I have got to try those Whole Foods brand oreos!)

  19. I don’t think I could lose weight if I lived next door to you. The heavenly aromas that must waft from your apartment must drive the neighbors wild!

  20. Hetal says:

    These cookies are on fleek! hahah they look delicious!

  21. Faye says:

    I. Am. In. Love. with these cookies!

  22. Elizabeth says:

    YUM! I completely forgot about malted flavor, but I think I need it in my life ASAP!

  23. I just did that quiz and got forties-fifties. Clearly I need to lower my age with some of these cookies!

  24. grace says:

    i don’t actually like the flavor of malted milk, but that doesn’t stop these from being great. after all, oreos are involved. 🙂

  25. Shaina says:

    Cookies and cream anything gets 5 stars in my book!

  26. cheri says:

    Hi Joanne, these look crazy good, I would have to give some away as well, I know that if I didn’t I would eat them all myself.

  27. WOA – these are stuffed with oreos, milk chocolate chips, and malted milk powder!?!?! How – oh please tell me how do I bake a bath and hide them from my daughter – cos these are too good to be sharing! Lucky Kathia!

  28. Christine says:

    Truly drool-worthy cookies. Haven’t thought of malted milk in ages! Took the quiz and bizarrely got “teens/early twenties”. Obviously a flawed quiz 😉

  29. Cookies in cookies for life!! I love adding malt to baked goods! These sound awesome friend!

  30. These cookies look fantastic Joanne! I must be under a rock too because I didn’t realize the cookie in a cookie was a thing either. I need to jump on this bandwagon now!!

  31. GiGi Eats says:

    You’re kidding me with this deliciousness, right?!?!?! TOO GOOD to be true! Now only… If they were sugar free? lol!

  32. I think you need to sell the idea to Nabisco!

  33. Wow, I sure could use one of these cookies about now. They look delicious!

  34. I’ve never seen these before so it’s a whole new concept for me 🙂

  35. Wow! What a beautiful looks cookies stuffed with oreos. They are truly fantastic, Joanne. These cookies are bursting with deliciousness, and I think I need to make them right now! DROOLING!

  36. Kelly says:

    Wow!! I love how fully loaded these cookies are! The malted milk powder and Oreo cookies sound incredible together!

  37. Kate says:

    We had chocolate malts last week and so now I have a container of malt powder in the pantry. What the heck am I going to do with malt powder? Thanks for coming to the rescue.

  38. Trust me, I understand med school = living under a rock. Looking at this makes me fee like a kid again – great combo!

  39. These look insanely decadent in the BEST possible way. YUM!

  40. elly says:

    I bookmarked these too!

  41. elly says:

    Oops, hit post comment too soon. Anyway, what I was going to say is I bookmarked these, too, but I so rarely make cookies. I need to live by you so you can make them for me and then I can just eat one every once in a while. 🙂
