Preheat oven to 350°F.
In a medium-sized bowl, beat together the butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar on medium speed for 1 minute or until combined.
Mix in egg, vanilla extract, baking soda, and salt. Add cocoa powder and flour and mix until well-combined.
Scoop dough into (6) 1/4 cup sized balls (we're making these big!) and place on parchment-lined, light metal baking sheet. (1/4 cup is equal to 4 tablespoons)
Bake at 350 degrees for 14-16 minutes or until cookies no longer look doughy in the center (a tiny bit is fine, as they will continue to bake on the hot pan). Cool completely on the pan.
Generously spread or pipe frosting on top.
To Make Frosting:
Beat the butter, cream cheese, vanilla extract, and salt on high speed for 1-2 minutes until combined. Turn the mixer to low speed then slowly add the powdered sugar. You may need to stop and scrape down the sides.
Beat on high for 1-2 minutes until creamy and the frosting is at a good consistency to pipe. If it looks too runny, add more powdered sugar. If it looks too stiff, add a tablespoon of milk until you get to the desired consistency. Fold in the crushed Oreos.

YUM! Such a tasty cookie, with or without the frosting. I added lots of extra cream cheese to the frosting. I didn’t want to share:)
Lol, sharing is always the hardest part! :) Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review, Amy!
I made these and they were so delicious! 😋
Crumbl Cookie who?! Just made these and they were DELICIOUS! This was such a quick and easy recipe to follow. I will note that my 1/4 cup didn’t allow me to get 6 large cookies however, I did get 5 large and 1 smaller one which was okay to me. In the end this was a 5 star recipe for me! I will definitely be making these again.
I am so glad that you enjoyed the cookies Kayla, thank you for taking the time to leave a review, I appreciate it.
