I always see these Mint Oreos in the grocery store next to my favorite Double Stuf Oreos. I knew we would like them since we loved these Homemade Oreos, where I used Peppermint extract in half of them. These Oreos are really good just by themself, but I decided to try them in some brownies with a mint fudge icing. They are thick, rich, and delicious!
1 2/3 cups granulated sugar
1 1/2 sticks (3/4 cup) unsalted butter, melted
2 T water
2 large eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 tsp baking powder
8 Mint Oreos, cut into quarters
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9x9 inch baking pan with cooking spray. Line with parchment paper with a 1 inch overhang to help lift out brownies later.
In a large mixing bowl, stir together sugar, butter, and water. Stir in eggs and vanilla extract.
Sift together flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt in separate bowl. Stir dry ingredients into wet ingredients just until combined and lump free. Add the quartered Oreos and carefully fold into brownie batter. Spread into prepared baking pan.
Bake for 25-30 minutes or until toothpick comes out slightly sticky. Remove from oven and let cool slightly.
Mint Fudge Icing:
1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter
6 T milk
4 T unsweetened cocoa powder, sifted
3 cups powdered sugar, sifted
1 tsp mint extract
6 Mint Oreos, quartered (for garnish)
In a small sauce pan over low heat, melt butter. Stir in milk. Sift in cocoa powder and powdered sugar. Whisk until smooth. Turn off heat and whisk in mint extract. Pour over warm brownies and let cool until set.
When the icing has set, lift brownies out of pan onto cutting board. Cut into squares and garnish with Oreos. Enjoy!
As you can tell, I didn't wait for the icing to completely set because my girls were anxious to eat them and I wanted a good picture before the sun went down. They are so good warm! Enjoy!
