Homemade Oreos Cookies are the best! You are guaranteed to see someone’s face light up with all those words combined.

This is another one of those classic recipes made with a mix that taste just like grandma’s tried and true recipe from scratch. The key to this one, however, is using Devil’s Food Cake.

Homemade Oreos

While it’s easy enough to walk into the grocery store and walk out with a package of Oreos, putting a little time and effort into making your own homemade Oreo cookies is well worth it.

Soft, chewy, creamy, sweet and they taste like something grandma would make from scratch. As a time-saving method we use boxed Devil’s Food Cake, so you have a lot less effort with the same great taste!

I don’t know about you, but I seem to struggle when a recipe asks me to roll anything into uniform balls. 

First, they are all different sizes, second my hands are a mess, and third it takes so long to roll them all.

So, one of my favorite kitchen gadgets is the mini cookie scoop. I promise, get a good one because you will be using this often.

This is one of those recipes where a mini cookie scoop is golden!  Each one perfect in shape and size instantly to make the best Oreo ever!

The homemade cream cheese filling is an incredible way to bring the cookies together and may remind you of a chocolate Whoopie pie.

This frosting is thick and smooth, similar to the true Oreos, so I recommend piping it through a frosting bag or being careful while applying it between the layers so that the cookies don’t become broken in the process.

How to Make Homemade OREOS

  • Preheat Oven to 350F
  • In a large mixing bowl or stand mixer – dump cake mixes, eggs, and oil and mix. This will form a thick batter.
  • Using a mini cookie scoop – scoop into 1 inch balls and place on a cookie sheet. Bake for 7-9 minutes. Do not over bake.
  • Let cookies cool completely on a wire rack.
  • In a separate mixing bowl – Mix until smooth the softened cream cheese, butter and vanilla. Add powdered sugar until you have a nice thick rich consistency. If it becomes too thick you can always add a little bit of milk – a tablespoon at a time.
  • Frost the underside of cookie and top with additional cookie.
  • Store leftover cookies in an air-tight container in the refrigerator.

Making uniform shaped cookies is sometimes difficult and downright impossible, but when you use a mini cookie scoop to do the hard work for you, you’ll be golden.

I personally use and love my cookie scoop as it is one of my most used kitchen gadgets. With every chocolate Oreo cookie coming out in the same size and shape, you can bet the cookies line up nicely once filled.

Can I Freeze Homemade Oreos?

Yes, absolutely. I highly recommend placing your Oreos on a baking sheet and freezing until solid.

After that, individually wrap the Oreos in plastic wrap and place it into a Ziploc style bag.

Then you can grab and go with as many as you want, whenever you want. Perfect for a fast snack on the go.

How to store homemade Oreos

Keep your homemade stuffed Oreos stored in an airtight container inside of your fridge. If you wish to stack them, keep a layer of parchment paper between the layers to prevent sticking.

Otherwise, have each Oreo wrapped in plastic wrap so that they don’t fall apart or stick together. 

Can I make these Homemade Oreos dairy free?

By using a dairy free cream cheese like Kite Hill or Daiya, and using dairy free cake mix, you can make these dairy free. You will also want to give a dairy free substitute for the milk and the butter.
