What’s In Peanut Butter Oreos?
- 1 box Devils Food Cake Mix
- 2 Eggs
- 6 Tbs Oil
- 4oz Cream Cheese Softened
- 3 Tbs Butter Softened
- 2 Cups Powdered Sugar
- 1/2 tsp Vanilla
- 1-2 Tbs Milk
- 1/3 Cup Peanut Butter
How to Make Homemade Oreos
- Preheat your oven to 350 Degrees F
- In a large mixing bowl place the Devil’s Food Cake Mix, Eggs, and Oil. Mix to combine.
- Using a Cookie Scoop, scoop the mixture into perfectly even scoops. Place them evenly on a prepared cookie sheet.
- Bake for 7-9 minutes and allow to cool completely.
How to Make the Filling
- In a large bowl mix together the Cream Cheese, Peanut Butter, Butter, Powdered Sugar, Vanilla, and Milk until well combined.
- Place the filling into a large zip-loc bag and then snip off one corner of the end. This makes it easy pipe filling onto the cookie.
- Flip over and place half of the (cooled) cookies bottom side up. Pipe some filling onto each cookie bottom.
- Top with another cookie (like a sandwich) for the perfect homemade oreo.
- Keep stored in the Refrigerator.
Can you Freeze Peanut butter Oreos?
Yes, you can freeze homemade oreos. I recommend choosing one of the three following methods for easy freezing. This will make life a little simpler when you’re ready to grab a frozen treat.
Either A) place the oreos on a baking sheet and freeze until solid, then transfer to a ziploc bag in the freezer. This keeps them from sticking to one another in the bag!
B) individually wrap each cookie (or pair of cookies) in plastic wrap and keep stored in a ziploc bag. This makes it great for grabbing a few to toss into lunchboxes!
Or C) layer the cookies in a tupperware syle container with a sheet of cut parchment paper between them to prevent sticking. They might stick to the cookies they touch, but this method is still pretty great.
Whichever method you choose, let the cookies rest on the counter for a few minutes before eating.
This helps them to come to room temperature. Eating a frozen cookie could be hard on the teeth.
That said, eating them cold could be great on a hot summer’s day!
How to make Double Stuffed Peanut Butter Oreos
This is probably the easiest thing to do! Simply double the filling!
If piling too much frosting onto one cookie bottom is too difficult, place half on one cookie and the other on another half. Then sandwich them together gently.
You may want to let the cookies set like this for a little while. Giving the frosting a chance to harden slightly can reduce the mess when you bite into them.
Can I use a Cookie Scoop?
Yes, absolutely! I like to use a small or medium sized cookie scoop when making homemade Oreos. This gives uniform cookie sizes and helps to make them a little rounded!
Choose the size you want based on how big you want the cookies to be.
If you want to make a bunch of bite sized, a smaller scoop is preferred.
Larger scoops make fewer cookies, but they’re bigger. It’s a pretty fair trade-off.
Can I use any brand cake mix?
Yes you can. However, I have found that my personal favorite brand to use for this recipe is Duncan Hines Devil Food Cake. The cookies turn out chewy and delicious (almost like a brownie cookie).
