Mint Oreo Brownie Cookies are such a special treat. It was my son’s anniversary and he and his wife went to a bakery to get a mint brownie, but when he got there they were out. It is so hard with everything that is going on right now, for businesses like bakeries to know what to make and what not to make. And so I told him that I would make him something mint. 
 
They are very rich, but they are delicious for a special treat. My son was very pleased with them and I was happy to make them for him. Cooking and baking are some of my favorite ways of showing my love for others.
 

Just look at how scrumptious these cookies look, and they taste just like brownies.

I did not have mint extract; but I did have peppermint essential oil and so I added a very small drop into the frosting and the frosting turned out wonderful.

Do I Have to Use Mint Oreo’s?

  • No if you do not care for mint and you have regular Oreo’s on hand, Oreo brownie cookies sound amazing.
  • Just leave the mint extract out when you make your frosting.

 

Can I Substitute Peppermint for Mint?

  • Substitution will not have the same flavor as the original, but it will still have a mint flavor.
  • Peppermint and spearmint are two subsets of the mint herb.
  • Spearmint is milder, peppermint is more aggressive.
  • The term mint is often used interchangeably to describe spearmint or peppermint, depending on the locale.
 
 
 
 
 
 

Tips and Tricks For Mint Oreo Brownie Cookies:

  • Make sure that you do not over mix your dough; as it dries out the dough and you do not want your cookies to be dry.
  • If you like larger cookies, make them into 2″ balls; if you want the cookies to go farther, make then into 1″ balls.
