Tips to Make OREO Peppermint Cookies
- Don’t use your mixer to work in the chocolate chips, cookie chunks and peppermint. That’ll just crush it all up and make it some kind of horrible mess. So, just fold them in with a spatula or spoon.
- When you’re mixing together the dough to start with, use a mixer, but as the dough gets stiffer, you might need to move to a dough hook or spatula as the dough gets thicker. But, once the dough has formed, stop mixing, no matter what you’ve used. You don’t want to over mix the dough–it’ll make your cookies tough and these cookies need to be less chewy, more soft.
- If you want more OREO cookie chunks, one thing I like to do is sprinkle the tops of the cookies with more cookie chunks–that way there’s even more cookie in my cookie. If you know what I mean.
- What you need to know about the cream cheese in this cookie recipe–it’s got to be softened. Not melted, though–do not let it get too warm. If it’s too warm, the cookie dough won’t stick together right. But, the good news is, it’s ok if it does get too soft–you can just leave the cookie dough in the fridge for a few extra minutes before forming the balls.
How Long Do Cake OREO Peppermint Cookies Last?
You can expect your OREO Peppermint cookies to last without any problems for 5-7 days on the counter in an airtight container. If you’d like them to last longer, you can put them in the fridge, but I personally don’t like to do that because chocolate gets that weird film on it. If you can handle the film, great, but I can’t so no fridge for me.

Can You Freeze OREO Peppermint Cookies?
I don’t recommend freezing the cookies once baked. I have this thing about chocolate and the weird film that it gets when it’s frozen. But, that weird film goes away when the cookies are baked.
So, what I recommend is, if you want to freeze these cookies, you should wrap-up the cookie dough (you can even wrap up the balls of cookie dough individually) so you can bake the cookies later!
