This week Crumbl Cookies brought back the Birthday Cake Ft. Oreo cookies. Since we didn’t share a DIY Copycat Recipe for this flavor before for all the people who unfortunately don’t have a Crumbl near them, we thought today would be the perfect time. Plus, there are many people that live by a Crumbl but still love to try to make these amazing Crumbl cookies at home. We are here for you!

This is an OREO® cookie base with OREO® crumbs, covered in birthday cake cream cheese frosting then topped with OREO® cake ball pieces and rainbow sprinkles.

MINI CRUMBL COOKIES ARE THE WAY TO GO

Yes, Crumbl is known for their GIANT cookies. They are so big, in fact, they list each cookie as 3-4 servings in their stores. I don’t know about you, but I hate to share my cookies. I like my own perfectly round, un-touched cookie so mini cookies are right up my alley.

This Birthday Cake Oreo Cookies recipe makes 36 cookies because I recommend making them MUCH smaller than Crumbl would. Instead of a “shareable cookie”, this is a bite-sized cookie that you won’t feel so guilty eating. Three bites and it’s gone. Have two or three, no one is judging! I would assume Crumbl uses at least 1/4-1/3 of a cup of cookie dough for each cookie and I suggest less than 1 tablespoon of dough in order to make these a more manageable size.

WARM OR COLD COOKIES?

That is the question! I’m not talking about the cookie dough because no chilling is necessary for the dough but how do you serve them? Chilled or warm?

One word. CHILLED.

We are back to CHILLED with this recipe! Trust us. Plus, the super soft cookie with the chilled cream cheese frosting just works perfectly.

I have also found that all the Crumbl recipes stay fresh longer if you keep them in the refrigerator. No matter what air-tight container you keep the cookies in, they don’t stay fresh as long out on the counter as they do if you put them in the fridge. So, the moral of the story is STORE THESE COOKIES IN THE FRIDGE. Sure, you can eat them cold or let them come to room temperature but you’ll thank me when you still have fresh cookies 3-4 days later.
