The Ultimate Parent Trap Cookie

So, why is this called The Parent Trap Cookie? Well, if you remember the Lindsay Lohan version of The Parent Trap, there is the iconic scene where the twins both realize they eat Oreos with Peanut Butter..? These cookies were inspired by that scene! It is a black cocoa, oreo base cookie filled with peanut butter chips and Oreo chunks.

AKA, everything you get from dipping Oreos straight into a jar of peanut butter, only in cookie form. (ps. anyone else fall in love with Oreos and peanut butter from The Parent Trap? It’s the only way I eat them!)

So, let me teach you how to make these cookies yourself!

Ingredients in Peanut Butter Oreo Cookies

  • Butter– I use salted butter- make sure it is softened!
  • Sugar– Granulated sugar, we won’t use too much of it! We will use more brown sugar than granulated sugar.
  • Brown Sugar– This is where the chewiness of the cookie comes from, brown sugar!
  • Egg
  • Vanilla
  • Flour– Just all purpose flour, nothing fancy!
  • Black Cocoa– This is a MUST if you want the cookies to taste like Oreos!! I purchase my black cocoa off of amazon.
  • Soda
  • Salt
  • Peanut Butter Chips– These can generally be found by the chocolate chips in most grocery stores. I usually buy the Reese’s brand.
  • Double Stuffed Oreos-I like to use double stuffed just so we get the creaminess coming through in the cookies! If you just have regular, those will work fine, too.

How to Make Peanut Butter Oreo Cookies

These cookies really are so easy to make- even if you are a beginner baker, you’ve got this!!

First thing we will want to do is preheat our oven to 350°. Next, in a stand mixer or with an electric hand mixer, cream together your butter and sugars for 2 minutes. After the 2 minutes is up, the mixture should be light and fluffy, not super grainy anymore.

Scrape the sides of the bowl and then add in the egg and vanilla, mix until just combined.

Next, measure out the dry ingredients into the bowl, without the mixer being turned on. Leave the mixer off and in a separate bowl measure out the peanut butter chips and Oreo chunks. Set aside.

Once you have all of your ingredients measured out, you can now turn on the mixer. Mix until the flour is about half way incorporated. Once the flour is about half way incorporated, add the peanut butter chips and Oreo chunks to the mixer while it is still on. Continue to mix until the dry ingredients are combined. Do not over mix!

The mixer will seem dry and crumbly. Portion the dough out into 1/3 cup portions, lightly packing the dough together. The cookies won’t spread and flatten a lot while baking, so make sure your cookie dough is flattened slightly, looking like a hockey puck.

Bake at 350° for 12-14 minutes. The cookies should expand slightly and no longer look wet on top when you take them out of the oven. Immediately after taking the cookies out of the oven, use the back of a spoon and press the edges of the cookie towards the center, making the perfect circle cookie, if desired.

Allow the cookie to cool on the pan for 20 minutes.

Once the cookies are cool, melt the white chocolate chips in the microwave. Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave by placing them in a microwave safe bowl and microwaving for 30 seconds at a time, stirring at each 30 second mark until the the chocolate is smooth. Transfer the melted white chocolate into a a small zip top bag. Snip the corner and drizzle on top of each cookie. Serve warm.

How to Store Cookies

Store in an air tight container at room temperature for up to 4 days. You can freeze these cookies easily for up to 3 months, though!

Can I make the cookies smaller?

Yes! You’ll want to bake them at 350° still, but you’ll want to bake them for a few minutes less, probably around 9 minutes.

    Can you please tell me how you measure your flour and brown sugar for your recipes? Do you spoon the flour into a measuring cup and level or do you scoop the flour out with the measuring cup and level? Is your brown sugar lightly packed or packed? I’ve tried making a few of your recipes (including this one) but the results haven’t always been that great. I’m hoping this clarification will help.

    Just made these this weekend and they were so amazing!!! I was hesitant because I didn’t want to buy the black cocoa but I will never doubt again! Perfect combo of chocolate and peanut butter.

  3. I pack my brown sugar and then fluff the flour in the bin before gently scooping and shaking the flour level.

  4. Hi there,

    Just curious if I should adjust the flour slightly for high altitude? I live at 6,000 feet, so if I make the dough as is, is it pretty stiff? Or do you think it would possibly benefit from a couple extra TBSP of flour to make sure it retains it’s structure where I’m at?

    My word!! These cookies are heaven! Made exactly to recipe and it was perfect!

  6. Hi! Do you know if these cookies or any cookies on your blog can be made in advance and then frozen? I want to make a cookie table for a party but I can’t make all the cookies fresh for it.
