Mint M&M Oreo Cookies

I was so happy to find some Green M&Ms at Wal-Mart a few weeks back. I was wanting to make some “St. Patrick’s Day Cookies” and knew they would be perfect for my creation! The M&Ms are Mint (and Dark Chocolate), and I couldn’t resist throwing in some crushes Oreos. With those ingredients and my standard “cookie” recipe, I made some Mint M&M and Oreo Cookies.

Mint M&M Oreo Cookies that taste JUST like Thin Mints!! { }

I was quite surprised at how much I loved them. I’m not a huge dark chocolate fan, but the combination of the ingredients made me feel like I was eating Thin Mints!! Yup – the beloved Girl Scout Cookies, but in a softer, not as expensive way. :)

Mint M&M Oreo Cookies
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup sugar
  • ½ cup butter or margarine
  • ½ cup oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 bag Mint M&Ms
  • 1.5 sleeves Crushed Oreo Cookies
  1. Cream butter, oil and sugars.
  2. Add eggs, and beat until fluffy.
  3. Add remaining ingredients, including crushes oreos
  4. Spoon onto greased cookie sheet and add M&Ms on top pressing them in slightly.
  5. Bake at 350 for 7-8 minutes.

Found the M&Ms in a smaller bag on the end cap of Wal-Mart. Not sure if they are seasonal, so if you make them and like them I might stock up and get a few bags. :)

Mint M&M Oreo Cookies - YUMMY!

{Can you tell my OCD tendencies with these cookies?? Notice how there aren’t 2 colors of the same green right next to each other, only diagonal from each other? Yeah – OCD!} LOL!

Let me know if you try these out too because they are so stinkin’ good!

Plus, they’re an EASY dessert or treat for St. Patrick’s Day (gotta love green treats!!)

    I was totally bummin’ yesterday because I didn’t buy any Girl Scout cookies and they were being to delivered to everyone at work. I seriously considered raiding the office for left over Thin Mints. So I am all about making these tonight! Thanks for sharing!!

      Hi Jill! Thanks for the sweet comment. Did you end up making these? Dying to know what you thought…. :)

    OK, such a freaky coincidence.! I bought the exact ingredients to try out the very same thing. (Well except I can’t find the dark mint M&M’s, only regular mint.). Great minds really do think alike my friend! At least now I don’t have to wonder if they taste good since you already tried them for me. LOL!

      That is so funny, Kara! Great minds really do think alike. I actually had no intentions of adding the oreos and then found myself crushing them and throwing them in just because I had a package sitting on the counter. You still need to make them and post them! I’m sure our cookie recipe is different which means yours will probably turn out better. :)

    My hubby would die for these! Yummo!!

      You’re welcome! Thanks for coming to check them out. They are so simple, tasty and festive. Let me know if you try them and if you like them. :)

    Ok this may be a stupid question but…. you crush just the cookie part of the Oreo and not the creme filling, right?!? Thx :)))

    • 16

      Not a dumb question at all! You will crush the whole cookie – creme and all! I use oreos in a lot of what I do and I always leave the filling in (even if it calls for it without) because that’s the best part!! :)

  9. 17

    What a genius idea! I am definitely going to try these out!!!

  10. 19

    Oh crap this isn’t fair. They don’t have a mint M&Ms in Italy!

      Dang!! You may have to order some online. :( I didn’t think I’d like them as much with them being dark chocolate, but they were DELISH! :)

  11. 21

    I’m hoping I can still find these mint m&m’s I want to make these for our local blogger meetup this Friday, looks delish!

      I just saw them at Wal-Mart recently on an end cap. Hopefully you can find them, and have fun at your blogger meet-up – so fun!

    Wow, these were so yummy! Made them with my 3 year old daughter over the weekend and she LOVED crushing up the Oreos. And everyone who tried the cookies loved them. Loving your blog too! So glad I came across it looking for a recipe using the mint M&Ms.

    I can’t wait to try these! I buy as many mint M&Ms as I can at Christmastime- I had no idea they had them all year. These look a bit different than the Christmas ones, but the green is perfect for St. Patrick’s Day. Thanks so much for the great recipe! And thanks for always hosting such a wonderful link party! Have a great day!
