- Baking soda & baking powder– These will give our cookie a little height.

Can I use double-stuff Oreos or thin Oreos for this recipe?
No, make sure to use regular Oreos to keep the texture of these cookies the same. If you use the double stuffed Oreos, the stuffing will bring too much moisture to these cookies and if you use the think ones, there won’t be enough cookies or stuffing to make the exact cookie dough that I made for this recipe. Please stick to the regular oreos.
CAN I USE REGULAR COCOA POWDER INSTEAD OF BLACK COCOA POWDER?
Yes, you can. I prefer using black cocoa to make it really taste like Oreo cookies, but if you are in a pinch and don’t have it, regular will work just fine!
