So I'll admit that I'm not a white chocolate fan. I've said in the past that I'm not really a chocolate fan in general unless it involves dark chocolate, but there are a few exceptions. The first exception is the Banana's Foster Fondue at The Melting Pot and the second is when it's white chocolate chips inside of a delicious cookie. This, folks, is one of those exceptions.
These cookies have a little bit of everything going on. They're a vanilla cake based cookie full of little treats of goodness. They have chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, and even Oreos! Who doesn't love a good cookie that includes pieces of other cookies?
Since these are a cake mix based cookie, that aren't dense. They're a lighter cookie that will still be good days later. They're also a drop cookie so that makes the recipe just that much easier!
