  1. Preheat and Prepare: Begin by preheating your oven to 375 degrees F and lining two cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Mix Wet Ingredients: In a medium-sized bowl, use an electric mixer to combine the butter and granulated sugar until smooth, about 2 minutes. Add the egg, egg yolk, vanilla extract, and vegetable oil, mixing well.
  3. Combine Dry Ingredients: In a separate bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, black cocoa powder, cornstarch, baking powder, and salt. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet mixture, mixing until a soft dough forms. Add milk as needed to ensure the dough comes together.
  4. Shape and Bake: Scoop the dough into tablespoon-sized portions and roll into balls. Place the dough balls onto the prepared cookie sheets and gently flatten with the palm of your hand. Bake for 7-8 minutes, until set but still soft.
  5. Prepare Filling: While the cookies cool, prepare the filling. In a mixing bowl, combine softened butter, confectioner’s sugar, marshmallow fluff, and vanilla extract. Gradually add heavy cream until the filling reaches a smooth consistency.
  6. Assemble Cakesters: Once the cookies have cooled completely, spread a generous dollop of filling onto the bottom of one cookie and sandwich it with another. Repeat until all cookies are filled.
  7. Enjoy: Indulge in the deliciousness of your homemade Oreo Cakesters! Serve them as a delightful treat for dessert, snack time, or any occasion.

What Is Black Cocoa?

Black cocoa powder is a type of cocoa powder that has been processed with an alkalizing agent, giving it a dark color and a rich, intense flavor. It is commonly used in baked goods to add depth and richness to chocolate recipes.

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature

  • 1 cup granulated sugar

  • 1 egg, room temperature

  • 1 egg yolk, room temperature

  • 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. vegetable oil

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1/4 cup black cocoa powder

  • 1 Tbsp. cornstarch

  • 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder

  • 1/4 tsp. salt

  • 2 Tbsp. milk

  • Oreo Cakester Filling
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened

  • 2 cups confectioner’s sugar

  • 1 cup marshmallow fluff

  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract

  • 2-3 Tbsp. heavy cream


  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F and line two cookie sheets with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • In a medium-sized bowl, use an electric mixer to combine the butter and the sugar. Mix until smooth – about 2 minutes.
  • Add the egg, egg yolk, vanilla, and vegetable oil. Continue to mix while scraping down the sides of the bowl with a silicone spatula to make sure that everything is being incorporated evenly.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet and continue to mix to combine. Just as the dough starts to crumble together, add in the 2 tablespoons of milk to help combine the dough completely. The dough should be soft.
  • Scoop and roll the dough into a ball. Each one should be about 2 tablespoons amount.
  • Place the balls on the prepared cookie sheet then use the palm of your hand to gently press the cookies down slightly. Bake for about 7 minutes. We want them to stay soft so undertaking them and then leaving them on the cookie sheet for a few minutes after baking will leave you with the perfect texture.
  • Allow the cookies to cool completely before filling.
  • Filling
  • Use an electric mixer to mix everything together while slowly adding in the heavy cream one tablespoon at a time. Mix until nice and smooth.
  • Once the cookies have cooled completely, fill each one with filling either using a piping bag or simply spreading it on the bottom of one cookie with a knife. Top with another cookie facing up and there you have it!
  • Enjoy!
