Cookies and Cream Truffle Cookie Bars

I expect to be nominated for "Mother of the Year" for this one.

Cookies and Cream Truffle Cookie Bars
from Picky Palate
Makes 16

115g unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup caster sugar
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups plain flour
1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
1/2 teaspoon sea salt flakes
1 cup mini chocolate chips
12 Oreo Cookies, broken up
26 Lindor balls, halved

Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Line a 20 x 20 cm baking pan with foil sprayed with cooking spray.

Place butter and sugars into a large bowl, stir to combine, at least 2 minutes. Add egg and vanilla, mixing to combine. Add dry ingredients, chocolate chips and oreo cookie pieces, stirring to combine.

Press 1/3 of the dough into the bottom of prepared baking pan. Top with 5 rows of the halved Lindor balls 5 per row which means you'll have to eat one half (cooks treat). Top with remaining dough and gently press. Bake for 25-30 minutes, until golden brown. Let cool for 30 minutes, cut into squares and serve.


  1. Definitely making these once I eat chocolate again!!! Going to be chocolate free until the end of March. Yaiks. :)

  2. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! I was wondering how these had such gooey and seemingly melted chocolate in them and now I know..... I love those little chocolate balls! They are my favourite! And the Oreo's top the recipe off! I'll definitely be making these. Lovin' it Jen, thanks again!!!!!!
    P.s I made your OMG burgers for my partner last night and he thought they were great!

  3. Haha mother of the year? You think? I would said mother of the life! God! Lindt on a cookie car? Cookies and cream?? Ouff...okay I'm comin, I'll take the next plane ;)

  4. I spotted these last night when you posted the picture on Facebook. Of course it was right when I was having a really bad craving for chocolate. These look yummy.

  5. Thanks Laura. Chocolate-free until March - ouch!

  6. You're welcome Sam. Glad you enjoyed it. So happy that your partner like the OMG burgers, they are our faves.

  8. Hey Patty. Was that good timing or bad timing?

  9. Holy YUM these look insane!!! I'm not a mother yet, but I am a teacher of little 5th graders... and I think I might just get teacher of the year if I made these for them...
