Chocolate Cream Filled Cookies Recipe from

Chocolate Cookies with Cream Filling make a delicious cookie recipe the whole family will love. So easy to prepare and a great homemade treat!

 There’s just something about chocolate cookies with a cream filling.

For some time now, every time we go to the grocery store, Sam makes sure to head up the cookie aisle and snag a package of Oreos and stuffs them into the grocery buggy (also known as cart in most parts of the world, but loving referred to as a buggy around my neck of the woods!) while I’m looking the other direction.

It all started when he was a little fella and as we were walking down the aisle, he picked up four packages at once and in the loudest voice he could manage said, “Mama, I think we need more Oreos.”

When I told him we didn’t need any and started to put them back on the shelf, he slyly grabbed another package from the display on the other side of the aisle and put it on the bottom rack.

I always know that if he’s with me at the store, there will definitely be Oreos in my buggy at the time we checkout.

Before our trip to Daytona recently, I made the trip to the grocery store solo.

Let me just stop right there.

Parents, isn’t it the most amazing thing in the world to go to the grocery store by yourself every once in a while? I mean, just being able to actually spend time in the produce section without hearing, “Come on, Mama.” or “Aren’t you ready, Mama?” or “I’ll push the buggy, I make it go faster.”

Yeah, you get the picture.

Looking over the lemons is a little more leisurely without a teenager on your heels.

On the other hand, as soon as I think about enjoying that 30 minute stroll through the supermarket, I start feeling that Mom Guilt. You know the thoughts of, “Oh my goodness, he’s 13, in five more years he’ll be buying groceries at college….”

Which leads to, “I hope he’ll eat right while he’s away at college….” and “Maybe I need to step up my game of teaching him to cook more. Yes, that’s it. He’s going to cook all of our meals for the next week!!!”

Poor kid. He doesn’t stand a chance.

But, back to the point.

Before our trip to Daytona recently, I made the trip to the grocery store solo. After my panic attack in the produce section and resolve to make sure that Sam was a proficient cook before he hits high school, I forgot something.

The Oreos.

How in the world?!

As I unpackaged and put away the groceries at home, I realized what I’d forgotten and decided I’d start those cooking lessons with a homemade chocolate cookie with cream filling.

I was still dealing with all that Mom guilt after all.

Here’s my recipe for our Chocolate Cookies with Cream Filling. I hope you love them as much as we do!

Chocolate Cookies with Cream Filling make a delicious cookie recipe the whole family will love. So easy to prepare and a great homemade treat!
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes
Servings: 18


Chocolate Cookies:

  • 1 cup (226 g) butter, softened
  • 1 3/4 cups (347 g) granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup (53 g) brown sugar
  • 2 (100 g) eggs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons (7 g) vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 cups (300 g) all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup (42 g) unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon (6 g) baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon (2 g) baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon (1 g) kosher salt

Cream Filling:

  • 1/4 cup (46 g) shortening
  • 3/4 cup (72 g) marshmallow cream
  • 1 cups (114 g) confectioner’s sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon (2 g) vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tablespoon (7 g) milk


Chocolate Cookies:

  • Line baking sheet pans with parchment paper or silicon baking mats.
  • Cream together butter and sugars until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add in eggs, one at a time, and then vanilla. Whisk together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl. Slowly incorporate flour into butter and sugar mixture, making sure to mix well as combined, taking care not to overmix as it causes tough cookies.
  • Scoop the dough into teaspoon-size amounts, roll into a ball in the palm of your hand, place onto the prepared baking pan and press flat with the palm of your hand.
  • Alternately, place a piece of parchment paper on the countertop. Divide cookie dough in half and place half at a time on the parchment paper and roll to desired thickness. Cut cookies with small round cutters, working dough back together and rolling and cutting until all dough has been used and placed onto prepared baking sheets(photographed method).
  • Preheat oven to 350º F as cookie dough is in the freezer. Transfer baking sheets straight from the freezer to the oven for baking. Bake cookies 10-12 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely before adding cream filling.

Cream Filling

  • While the cookies are baking, prepare the cream filling. Cream together all of the ingredients for the cream filling recipe. Set aside until the chocolate cookies have completely cooled.
  • Scoop 1 teaspoon of cream filling and place on top of the flattened side of one cookie. Place another cookie on top of the cream filling.

  1. Hey..
    I plan to make these cookies, and i was wondering if they expanded a lot?
    I would really appreciate an answer.

    1. Hi Ina,
      I’ve found that the drop and scoop method seems to expand more than the rolled method in these cookies. If you want to make sure they do not expand much at all, if any, I’d recommend placing them in the freezer for about 30 minutes before baking.

    2. Thank you so much for the help.
      I actually made them today and they were really yummy.
      I only made the cookies and served them with Chocolate sauce.
      Thanks again…

  2. So I guess I should enjoy my alone time at the grocery store while I have it, huh? I feel like I already have a bit of practice with my boyfriend who is THE worst to go shopping with, it’s like pulling teeth! Always trying to rush me. Good grief, pass over the cookies so I can start throwing them at his head 🙂 (The cookies look beautiful!)

  3. Those cookies sound delicious! I’m sure my kids will love them, especially my 5 year old oreo lover!!! What is marshmallow cream and could I make it by melting some marshmallows?

    Thank you so much!

  4. Robyn,
    Your cookies look delicious. I can’t wait to make them. Pinned.
    We call shopping carts wagons.

    1. Oh my goodness – I love that you call them wagons! That’s the best I’ve heard yet!

  5. oh my gawd, Robyn, I LOVE going to the grocery store solo. . I have a 4 and 7 year old so you know my pain when I have to go with them. . 😛 I hope you do start those cooking lessons with your 13 year old! 🙂 more help for you! love these cookies!!!

    1. Thanks so much, Alice. Oh goodness, I remember those ages! I bet you finds all sorts of goodies by the time you reach the checkout counter! 🙂

  6. I can’t remember the last time I shopped without kids. It’s even worse when my husband goes. When the kids ask for something it is pretty easy to say ‘no’ if I want to. How do I say ‘no’ to the man who brings home the bacon so to speak. Costco is the worst….during the holidays…..impossible to not come home (after all of us have been there together) without a bunch of junk.

    My guys are Oreo lovers. Frozen Oreos especially.
    These look irresistible so I’ll be giving them a try. I think I’ll roll them out and cut the circles….they look so pretty.

    1. Yes! When my husband and son both go with me, I definitely have way more than normal by the time we checkout, but don’t we love ’em!? Rolling them definitely makes for a pretty cut cookie look, but the drop and plop sure is fast and easy. 🙂 Just sayin’

  7. These look better than Oreos! They are so thick and absolutely perfect! My kiddos will love them!

  8. Same here on the kid tip but I certainly know the grocery store situation. These look so perfect I could just sink my teeth into them and eat them all. Perfection!

  9. I don’t have any kids, so I don’t know what it’s like going to the grocery store with them. But, if it’s anything like bringing my husband….well…let’s just say that I banned him from coming with me 😉
    These cookies look perfect! I could go for about 6 of them RIGHT NOW. Pinned!
