How Do I Make Mint Oreo Brownie Cookies?
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
- Prepare 2 baking sheets with a baking mat or line them with parchment paper (for baking).
- In a mixing bowl combine the cocoa, butter, sugar and the oil.
- Then add the eggs and vanilla, and mix for about 30 seconds.
- Then add the flour, salt, and the baking powder, mix to combine, *DO NOT OVER MIX.
- Then you can make your cookies whatever size you like, using a 1″ scoop or a 2″ scoop.
- Place them on the cookie sheet and bake the 1″ cookies for 8 minutes, then open the oven and press them down slightly with a spatula, and then cook them for another 2-3 minutes.
- If you are using the 2″ scoop, cook them for 10 minutes, and then slightly flatten them, and then cook them for another 2 minutes.
- After 4-5 minutes, remove the cookies to a wire rack, and allow them to cool completely.
- Mix the butter, powdered sugar, milk, cocoa powder, vanilla and the mint extract in a medium bowl with a hand mixer.
- Place the mint Oreo’s in the blender and mix until they are fine crumbs.
- After the frosting is mixed, stir in the cookie crumbs and combine.
- Frost the cooled cookies and top with a Oreo or 1/2 Oreo if desired.
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.
