Mint Chocolate Chip Oreo Cookies

About a year and a half ago I found a found a bag of mint chocolate chips. I held onto these mint chips like people hold onto those outfits for the special occasions. I knew I was going to use these mints in that PERFECT recipe. I had searched and searched and nothing jumped out at me. The reason I held onto these for so long is because I do not live in the US, we never have cool things like this in our supermarket, I did go back to this grocer the other day and they still sell them, but I wasn't going to risk that. Unfortunately they aren't the cool green mint's like Guitard's, but they still deliver a killer taste. My search was finally over when I found a recipe that jumped out. I'm not sure where I got it from and I altered it quite a bit as well unfortunately. These cookies were definitely worth waiting a year and a half for. These were devoured in so little time. Everyone loved them. They tasted like a Pep. If you're a chocolate fan and a mint fan these are THE cookie for you. And to think years ago I absolutely despised the taste of mint, now I can't seem to get enough of it. Oh boooyyy.


  • 1/2 cup softened butter
  • 6 tbsp sugar
  • 6 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • ½ tsp peppermint extract
  • 1 ¼ cup flour
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 8 broken pieces Oreo Cookies
  • 1 cup mint chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cream butter, and sugars until well combined. Add egg and peppermint extract until mixed well.

Place flour, baking soda and salt into a large bowl, stir to combine. Slowly add dry ingredients to wet ingredients then stir in oreos and mint chocolate chips until just combined.

With a medium cookie scoop, scoop onto a parchment or silpat lined baking sheet. Bake for 7-9 minutes or until cooked, but still soft. Let cool on baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring to cooling rack.

Enjoy, and if you don't want to share, I don't blame you!
