I know what you're thinking. Another cookie cake? Yes, yes, it's true! And this one is even better than a regular cookie cake because there is a surprise inside! Yes there are M&M's galore but there is also a layer of Oreos running right through the middle.
This gorgeously golden cookie combines my three favourite things (Oreos, cookies and candy) into the most sumptuous treat - an Oreo Stuffed M&M Cookie Cake! It is the best of all three worlds, with a golden crust, a soft creamy cookie centre, a generous slathering of crunchy M&M's AND a secret stash of Oreos!
I had way too much fun making my Nutella Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars a few weeks ago. So I thought to myself, what else can you put inside a cookie? Thus the Oreo Stuffed M&M Cookie Cake was born. Have you ever put Oreos into baked goods before?
What I love most about this sweet treat, is it looks so tempting on the outside, but the fun only really begins when you cut that first slice and catch a glimpse of the wonderful Oreo surprise! Your family and friends are sure to be impressed. So grab the Oreos from the back of the cupboard and let's get baking!
I'm sharing the easy recipe for this Oreo Stuffed M&M Cookie Cake over on Mandy's Recipe Box today, so pop on over and check it out. Also if you happen to be celebrating the Fourth of July this weekend, don't forget about my special Fourth of July Peanut Butter Cookie Cake - complete with swirls of red and blue buttercream!
I don't know if there's any better way to celebrate then with a cookie cake! I think i'll be celebrating with an authentic American burger in one hand and a peanut butter treat in the other!
Oreo Stuffed M&M Cookie Cake
Makes one 23 cm / 9 inch cookie cake
115 grams (1/2 cup / 1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
3/4 cup (140 grams) brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 large egg
1 and 1/4 cup (175 grams) plain flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cornflour (cornstarch)
13 plain Oreo biscuits
1/2 cup plain M&M's + extra for decorating
Prepare your round 23cm / 9 inch baking tin by greasing with butter and lining with baking or parchment paper. Preheat the oven to 180 (360 F). In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugar for 3-4 minutes with an electric beater or until pale and creamy. Add the vanilla and the egg and beat again until combined. Sift in the flour, baking soda and cornflour and gently fold with a wooden spoon or spatula.
The next part is a little bit of a labour of love – but it’ll be worth it. Divide the dough into two and press half of the cookie dough into the bottom of your pan. You will need to spread it out with your hands so there are no gaps – go right into the corners. Once this is done, place your Oreos on top of the cookie dough and press them down slightly so they stick. Just make sure you don't put any Oreos right along the edge as you want room for the cookie dough to go down the sides so the Oreos are completed hidden.
Add the M&M's to the other half of the cookie dough and mix through. Then grab small pieces or blobs of the cookie dough and place them all over the Oreos. You will then need to spread the cookie dough out gently with your hands so the Oreos are fully covered. Pop into the oven for approximately 20-22 minutes or until golden brown on top. Press a few extra M&M's gently into the top while it's still warm. Then leave the cake to cool for 15 minutes or until you can safely remove it from the tin and then pop it onto a wire rack to cool completely.
