Double Fudge Oreo Crunch Cookies
I have a thing for Oreos and chocolate. I eat way too much of both. I made these cookies to bring to a housewarming party at my niece's house last weekend. They were made with Hershey's Special Dark Chocolate so they were very dark - but good! The only problem with these cookies is that you make the batter and then have to refrigerate them for a few hours before baking so if you want cookies fast this isn't the recipe for you.

1 cup butter at room temperature
1-1/2 cups sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup crushed Oreo cookies
Cream butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla until fluffy. Add flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt.
Fold in chocolate chips and crushed oreos.
Refrigerate dough for 2-4 hours. When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Roll into balls or scoop with ice cream scooper and set on a baking sheet. Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes. Let cool.
