  • 1 teaspoon instant coffee
  • 2 teaspoon hot water
  • ½ cup butter
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 & ¼ cup flour
  • ½ cup dutch processed cocoa powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 5 oreos with the filling removed, crushed
  • 8 gummy worms

Chocolate frosting

  • ½ cup butter softened, unsalted
  • ¾ cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoon dutch processed cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup semi sweet chocolate chips melted and slightly cooled


  • Preheat the oven to 350F then line a baking sheet with parchement paper and set aside.
  • Mix the hot water and instant coffee together in a small bowl and set aside to cool.
  • Cream butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar until light and creamy. Mix in the egg and the coffee until combined.
  • Add the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt and mix until the flour mixture disappears. Scoop out 7 equally sized cookie dough balls with a large cookie scooper (about ¼ cup), roll them between the palm of your hands then roll in the oreo crumbs.
  • Place the cookies on the prepared baking sheet, gently press down on the cookies to about 1 inch in thickness, and bake in the preheated oven for 12-13 minutes. Once the cookies are baked, swish them around between a large cookie cutter to keep them round and thick and let them cool down on the baking sheet for 10 minutes before transferring them to a cooling rack.

Chocolate buttercream

  • In a bowl melt the chocolate chips in the microwave in 30-second increments until fully melted then set aside to cool down a little.
  • In a stand mixer using a paddle attachement cream the butter, sifted powdered sugar, vanilla, and cocoa powder on medium speed for 3 minutes, scraping the side from time to time.
  • Add in the melted chocolate and mix on high speed, scraping down the sides from time to time. After 2-3 minutes the frosting will be smooth, and fluffy. Place the frosting in a piping bag with a Wilton 2A, and pipe the chocolate frosting on the cooled-down cookies, top with Oreo cookie crumbs, and decorate with gummy worms.
