I am a major fan of the bar cookie. It’s not that I have anything against round cookies, but it is a little more time consuming because you have to roll so many balls of dough and bake multiple batches. Sometimes I’m baking with the kids and we’re in no hurry and have plenty of time to sit and portion out tablespoons of cookie dough on the pans. But sometimes we just don’t have a ton of time and I want to whip something up quickly. That’s when I turn to desserts like these Oreo bars.

Bar cookies are pretty great on their own but they turn into something sublime when you add Oreos and two kinds of chocolate. For more chocolaty desserts try my chocolate fudge cookies, almond roca cookies and my Nutella cake!

Oreo Bars Ingredients

To make these Oreo bars you will need flour, baking soda, salt, butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, an egg, vanilla extract, Oreo cookies, white chocolate chips and semisweet chocolate chips.

How Do You Make Oreo Bars?

To make this Oreo bars recipe start by preheating your oven and placing parchment paper in a greased pan. In a bowl, combine flour baking soda and salt. Stir them together. Next use a mixer to cream together butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar. Mix in an egg and vanilla extract to the butter mixture. With your mixer on low, add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients. Fold in half of your chopped Oreos and white and semisweet chocolate chips into the batter. Place the batter in your prepared pan and sprinkle the remaining Oreo cookies and chocolate chips over the top. Bake the bars and let them cool. Serve and enjoy your Oreo bars!

Tips For The Perfect Oreo Bars

  • You can use chocolate chips or chunks, whatever you prefer. I like to use a combo of chocolate chips and chunks because I like the different textures and I think it’s more visually appealing.
  • When you chop your Oreos, try to cut them into similar sized, bite-sized chunks.
  • Look for white chocolate where the main ingredient is cocoa butter; so many brands of white chocolate these days are full of palm oil and it’s just not the same.
  • When you stir in the cookies, try to leave the cookie pieces intact. You want Oreo cookie pieces, not cookie powder!

Quick Tip

I use a stand mixer for this recipe; however, you can use any electric mixer.

Flavor Variations

While these cookie bars are delicious; you can change the recipe to add your favorite flavors.

  • Cookies: You can use different seasonal flavors of Oreos. Double Stuf Oreos also work. If you have other favorite cookies, you can chop them and put them in this batter.
  • Candies: For a colorful cookie bar you can substitute some chocolate chips for M&Ms. You can also pick your favorite small chocolate candies and add them to this bar.
  • Marshmallows: Mini marshmallows would be great in these bars.
  • Nuts: Feel free to add chopped pecans, walnuts or almonds to these bars.

Serves 12

Ingredients 

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter 1 stick, softened
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chopped Oreo cookies divided
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips or chunks divided
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips or chunks divided
  • Cooking spray

Instructions 

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray an 8 inch square baking pan with cooking spray.
  • Line the pan with parchment paper, leaving excess on the sides to lift the bars out later. Spray the parchment with cooking spray.
  • Combine the flour, baking soda and salt in a bowl. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream the butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes.
  • Add the egg and vanilla extract, beating until incorporated. Scrape down the sides of the bowl with a spatula if needed.
  • With the mixer on low, add the dry ingredients, mixing just until combined. Be careful to not overmix.
  • Fold in half of the Oreos and the white chocolate and semisweet chocolate chips with a spatula.
  • Transfer the dough to the prepared pan and press into an even layer
  • Sprinkle the remaining Oreos and chocolate chips over the top of the dough.
  • Bake for about 20-25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with just a few moist crumbs attached. I tested these with a metal pan, if you use a glass pan it may take 5 minutes longer to bake.
  • Transfer the pan to a wire rack and let the bars cool completely in the pan. Use the parchment overhang to lift the bars out and cut into squares for serving.

Notes

  1. You can use chocolate chips or chunks, whatever you prefer.
  2. When you chop your Oreos, try to chop them into similar sized, bite-sized chunks.
  3. Look for white chocolate where the main ingredient is cocoa butter.
  4. I use a stand mixer for this recipe; however, you can use any electric mixer.

  1. Have you doubled the recipe and made them in a 9×13? Some recipes don’t turn out great doubled. How is this one?

  2. 5 stars
    I fully agree with you, a good quality chocolate is the best and only option to make delicious baked treats! This looks yummy! Pinned, too. 🙂

  3. I bet this would be perfect for a make ahead dessert to take to a party:) Everyone loves Oreos right??

  4. I enjoy making bar cookies too, for that very same reason plus they can be elegant with tea/coffee. 🙂 All kinds of goodies in these blondies. btw – do you know, by chance, what happened to Tracey from Tracey’s Culinary Adventure? I’m sad she stopped blogging suddenly and wondered what happened to her.

    1. Hi Cristina,
      I heard that Tracey had a baby, maybe about 6 months ago? I’m not sure if that’s the reason why she left or if there were other reasons. I enjoyed her blog too, we were blogging buddies back when I had my old blog in 2009.

  5. Yum! I love blondies but never thought to make a cookies & cream version – Perfection! Thanks for sharing 🙂

  6. These looks so yummy… anything with Oreos and I’m sold! Also, I LOVE your plates!!
