Homemade Oreos

See on my blog list, "My Chocolate Garden". Click onto that and then click onto the cookies subject line. The homemade oreos recipe is about third down. I made them last weekend and didn't have the Devil's food cake mixes so used 2 milk chocolate cake mixes instead. Cake mixes are on sale this weekend at Safeway for .69 each.
Update on 28 August 2010---the blog that I got this recipe from is no longer public. Luckily I had written down the recipe.

Homemade Oreos

from the blog My Chocolate Garden


2 Boxes Devil's Food or Chocolate cake mix

4 eggs, use large or extra large works best (note: the Devil's food cake mix tends to be more dry than the chocolate does)

1 C. oil

Combine thoroughly. Roll into 1 inch balls. Place on lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake at 340 degrees F for 8 minutes. Do not over cook. The cookies will not look done. Allow them to cool on a wired rack.


6 oz. cream cheese, softened

1/2 C. butter, softened

2 tsp. vanilla

4 1/2 C. powdered sugar


  1. All right, Jeri. Very nice recipe, but do we really NEED homemade oreos? Even if it is way more frugal than buying them at the store? Are the calories more forgiving of my hips because it's home-cooked? Nay, I shall not even look at this recipe because I don't want to have to start booking two airline seats when I fly.
