20 Best Stuffed Cookie Recipes

Cookies are amazing in any form, but these stuffed cookie recipes are on a whole other level.

After all, stuffed cookies are basically double the cookie goodness with something oozing out of the middle. Yum!

I don’t know about you, but I crave freshly baked, thick, and gooey cookies daily.

And these stuffed cookie recipes are about as thick and gooey as it gets. So much so, they’re downright dangerous!

I could eat half a batch on my own in a flash. And then wash down the rest as a midnight snack!

Seriously, these over-the-top cookie recipes are for serious sweet tooths only!

1. Nutella-Stuffed Cookies

Some people believe in saving the best for last. Not me.

I like to get people excited from the word GO. Which is why I’m starting with these Nutella-stuffed cookies.

They. Are. Heavenly

They’re buttery and so soft they fall apart at a touch. And they combine the sweetness of chocolate and sugar with an ample dash of sea salt.

All that is enough to put them on the “Top 10 Cookies of All Time” list.

But then you’ll bite into it, and a river of rich, warm, gooey Nutella rushes onto your tongue.

Honestly, I’m not sure if “heavenly” and “divine” are strong enough words. 

2. Brownie-Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

Each one of these thick, chewy, delightfully soft chocolate chip cookies has a decadent brownie surprise stuffed inside. 

You bite into it, expecting the yumminess of chocolate chip cookies, and get that and an extra dose of fudgy brownie.

Add that to the fact that you can make a whole batch in just over 20 minutes, and you have another stuffed cookie winner. 

3. Strawberry Cheesecake Cookies

These sweet and fruity strawberry cookies include a rich, sticky cream cheese filling. 

It’s kind of like having strawberry cookies with cream cheese icing. Except these are better because the cream cheese is a hidden surprise. 

You’ll know it’s there, but unless you tell people, they’ll get the sheer pleasure of that unexpected extra sweetness.

4. S’mores Stuffed Cookies

These cookies take a bit longer to make than some of the others on the list (about an hour and 10 minutes).

But they combine two of the most wonderful desserts ever: s’mores and chocolate chip cookies. 

You’ll get all the sugary goodness of homemade cookies, a double dose of chocolate, and gooey, melted marshmallows.

5. Peanut Butter-Stuffed Chocolate Cookies

Everyone knows that peanut butter and chocolate make an excellent combination.

And you’ll make these double chocolate, chocolate chip cookies even better with a peanut butter filling.

The cookies are easy to make, taking only 30-35 minutes. And the warm peanut butter, vanilla, and powdered sugar filling is sure to get your tastebuds tingling.

Sweet Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

6. Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

These are peanut butter cookies stuffed with Resee’s (or any brand’s) miniature peanut butter cups. 

That gives you peanut butter on the outside, chocolate in the middle, and more creamy peanut butter goodness on the inside of the cups. 

If you like a little chocolate with your peanut butter, these are the cookies for you.

If you prefer a small bit of peanut butter with your chocolate, use the above recipe instead.

7. Oreo-Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

Stuffing a cookie with an already stuffed cookie is the very definition of decadent self-indulgence, and I am 100% okay with that!

These chocolate chip cookies are super thick, sweet, and soft, and each one has a crunchy, tasty Oreo cookie inside it. 

It’s hard to explain the distinct taste.

You’ll taste the chocolate chip cookies and the Oreo, but together, they make another flavor that’s similar to deep-fried Oreos. 

I can’t explain it, but I can promise that you’ll love it. 

8. Oreo Stuffed White Chocolate Chip Cookies 

These Oreo-stuffed cookies are similar to those above, except you’ll use white chocolate chips instead of milk chocolate chips.

You’ll also add some crushed Oreos into the cookie itself, along with the whole Oreo you’ll stuff in the middle. 

9. Rolo-Stuffed Cookie Cups

Of all the Rolo candy desserts I’ve tried, these Rolo-stuffed chocolate chip cookies are my fave.

The outside cookie is essentially the same as the Oreo-stuffed chocolate chip cookies above.

But the Rolo gives the filling an entirely different taste.

Whoopie Pies

10. Whoopie Pies

Whoopie pies have been around for a while, but that just means they’ve stood the test of time and still have people who love them. 

To make them, you’ll bake two large, soft, moist chocolate cookie cakes.

Then, you’ll add a sweet, fluffy cream center that would make Oreos jealous. 

11. Salted Caramel Brown Sugar Cookies

These delectable cookies have a lot going on. The cookies themselves are brown sugar cookies, which are tasty enough on their own. 

However, once the dough is ready, you’ll add a Kraft caramel and coarse salt to the middle of each before covering them in more dough. 

As the cookies bake, the caramel melts into a warm, gooey, salty-sweet puddle, just waiting to delight the first person who bites into it. 

Before you serve them, though, you’ll drizzle each one with a generous helping of melted chocolate.

See? I told you — a lot going on, but every bit of it is phenomenal. 

12. Homemade Oreos

This recipe will help you make homemade golden Oreos. They’re crunchy, buttery, and sweet, with the perfect Oreo cream filling.  

13. Frosting-Filled Deep-Dish Cake Batter Cookies

These cookies are just plain fun. Each one is like a miniature Funfetti cake with the frosting on the inside. 

They’re chewy, colorful, and easy to make, and each one has a perfectly balanced mixture of chocolate and vanilla flavors. 

14. Snickers Stuffed Peanut Butter Cookies

These chunky, crunchy peanut butter cookies capitalize on the peanut butter chocolate combination in the best way, by sticking miniature Snickers bars inside each one.

I know I’m using the wrong candy slogan here, but these cookies truly are two great tastes that taste great together. 

15. Salted Caramel-Stuffed Double Chocolate Cookies

This outrageously indulgent cookie is a chocolate lover’s dream come true (and a sugar high waiting to happen). 

In addition to everyday baking ingredients like sugar, flour, butter, etc., this cookie also contains cocoa powder, brown sugar, vanilla extract, chocolate chips, and Rolo candies. 

You’ll top the whole thing off with coarse sea salt for an astonishingly sweet and salty combo, but the salt can’t hide the fact that these cookies are sugary to the max. 

16. Nutella-Stuffed Oatmeal Hazelnut Chocolate Chip Cookies

Here’s another cookie that has a lot happening inside it, but the name probably gave that away.

The closest comparison I can make for these is with Panera’s “Kitchen Sink” cookies.

However, there are many more ingredients in these – white sugar, brown sugar, butter, eggs, vanilla, salt, rolled oats, dark chocolate, hazelnuts, Nutella, sea salt, and more. 

You’ll think they’re amazing when you first see them, but once you take that first bite and the gooey filling hits your tongue, you’ll know they are actually exquisite.

17. Dreidel Surprise Cookies

These may not be appropriate for every occasion (although you could easily make them work for various events by simply choosing a different cookie cutter).

Still, they were too incredible not to add. 

Each cookie has three cookie layers. You’ll hollow out the middle cookie so that you can add M&Ms, nuts, raisins, chocolate chips, or any other small treat you want to use. 

Then, you’ll stick the third and final cookie on top of the middle one to help hold in all the extra treats.

Finish the cookies by decorating them with icing however you like. 

Imagine the surprise on the faces of your guests when they bite into a seemingly unassuming cookie to find a surplus of candy and treats spilling out of it. 

18. Pecan Pie Cookies

These buttery, brown sugar thumbprint cookies are soft and chewy, and you’ll fill the dent in each one with pecans, brown sugar, whipping cream, vanilla, and salt. 

Doing so effectively turns each one of these cookies into a bite-sized pecan pie.

If you’re looking for a fun, unique fall treat, you can’t beat these, especially since you can make two dozen in 30 minutes.

19. Oatmeal Sandwich Cookies

These delightful cookies taste a lot like oatmeal cream pies.

However, they’re smaller (more cookie-sized than Little Debbie-sized), and the cookies are crunchier. 

Still, if you’re a fan of oatmeal-flavored desserts, you’ll love them.

20. Nutella-Stuffed Snowball Cookies

Regular snowball cookies have a dense texture and wonderfully buttery and nutty flavor lightly sweetened by powdered sugar. 

These are precisely the same, but they have rich, thick Nutella centers that make them even nuttier and a bit chocolatey, too. 

Best of all, you can make them in about 35 minutes with only six ingredients.
