My husband gets in trouble for eating my stash of Oreos on the regular.

Even though I’ve explained to him MULTIPLE times that I buy Double Stuf Oreos for eating, and I buy regular Oreos for work (because regular Oreos work better for crusts and crumbling). And frankly, I just can’t see where the confusion is.

MY LATEST VIDEOS

Double Stuf tastes like 50 bajillion times better than a regular Oreo. Right?? I mean, after one bite he should be thinking *these are clearly the Oreos meant for Ashton’s blog. Maybe I shouldn’t continue to eat the whole package…*

Right?! It’s not that hard. And yet the problem continues…

So today I’m sharing with you a recipe that absolutely cannot be mistaken for the Oreos I set aside for blog recipes 😉.

These homemade cousins of the Oreo are made with soft cake mix cookies and filled with a delicious cream cheese icing. And they are OUTRAGEOUSLY good.

You can roll the edges in crushed candy canes (I used Andes Peppermint Baking Bits) to make a holiday version too!

Ingredients:

1 Devil's Food Cake mix (don't make the cake batter, just use the dry mix)

2 eggs

1/3 cup vegetable oil

For the Frosting:

1/2 cup butter, softened

8 ounces cream cheese, softened

3 1/2 cups powdered sugar

1 tsp vanilla

optional: crushed peppermint

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 350ºF.

Mix the cake mix, eggs, and oil. Scoop out heaping tablespoons and roll them into balls. Slightly flatten with your palms and place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.

Bake for 8 minutes. Let cool completely.

Use a stand mixer to whisk together the butter and cream cheese. Mix in the powdered sugar 1 cup at a time, scraping down the side between each addition. Mix in the vanilla.

Spread the frosting in between two chocolate cookies.
