I don’t know about you, but my kids are constantly asking for snacks.
I try to give them healthy snacks most of the time, but its always nice to indulge a little (moderation in all things, right?? I am pretty sure that includes oreos!).
WARNING!! Whenever I make these delicious blondies sometimes I OVER indulge because it’s hard to stop coming back for more . . . they are just that good!
What is a Blondie?
A blondie is basically a cookie baked in bar form.
Some people think blondies are the opposite of a brownie – brownies are chocolate-based and blondies are vanilla-based. While brownies are a dark chocolate color, blondies are a light golden color.
Many times blondies are referred to as “blonde brownies” because of their color (that comes from using brown sugar instead of cocoa).
Regardless of what you call them, they are delicious! I just love how thick and chewy they always turn out.

what people are saying about these Cookies and Cream Blondies:
“I made these for my family’s weekly Sunday night dinner and my adult boys said it was the best dessert I’ve ever made. This says a lot, because I’ve made them hundreds, if not thousands, of delicious desserts over the past two and a half decades! Thanks for this winner!” -Charissa
“These are so, so amazing! Making a double batch right now!” -Heather

Ingredients needed for Cookies and Cream Blondies:
- Brown sugar
- Instant vanilla pudding (cook and serve pudding will not work as well – we have only made it using instant)
- Baking soda
- Baking powder
- Milk chocolate chips
- White chocolate chips
- Double Stuffed Oreos (regular oreos are fine, but we prefer the Double Stuf ones!)
How to make Cookies and Cream Blondies:
Start by preheating the oven to 350 degrees.
Then grab the large mixing bowl and cream together the softened butter, brown sugar, and sugar. Once everything is creamed, add in the eggs and vanilla. Be sure to stir the mixture until it is well blended and evenly combined.
Next, add in the dry instant vanilla pudding mix to the creamed mixture and stir it until it is light and fluffy. If you don’t have instant vanilla pudding, white chocolate flavored instant pudding can be used instead.
NOTE: Instant pudding works best – I have not made the recipe using cook and serve pudding. Be sure to use the pudding in powder form – do not prepare the pudding as directed on the back of the box.
Then, add in the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt and continue to mix until the dry ingredients are mixed in well with the creamed mixture.
After everything is combined, fold the milk chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, and broken Oreo pieces into the batter until everything is evenly distributed.
Lastly, get out your 9 x 13 pan. Make sure to spray it well with your non-stick cooking spray to avoid the blondies from sticking to the pan.
Once the pan is prepped, pour the batter into the pan (the batter will be thick like cookie dough – I usually use my fingers to press the dough to the edges) and bake it for 20-22 minutes.
Pull them out once you see they are starting to brown a bit.
BE CAREFUL to not overbake the blondies. They might look as though they are undercooked, but the blondies will continue to cook after they are removed from the oven.
Kitchen utensils to have on hand to make these blondies:
- Large mixing bowl – this is a kitchen staple that I use almost every day!
- Wooden spoon – because this dough is so thick, it helps to have a sturdy wooden spoon to use to mix it all together
- 9 x 13-inch pan – I used a glass pan, but a metal pan will also work for this recipe
- Non-stick cooking spray – I use this stuff a few times a day! It makes clean up so much easier.
