Chocolate and mint!!

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.

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. 🙂

Tips, Variations + Storing Info

Best way to crush Oreos: You can crush Oreos by placing them in an airtight bag and crushing them with a rolling pin or meat cleaver. Be sure that 

Variations:

  • Use Mint Oreos
  • Add in white chocolate chips
  • To keep cookies soft you don’t want to overmix the batter
  • You also don’t want to overbake the cookies
  • Chewier: replace part or all of the white sugar with brown sugar.

STORE cookies in an airtight container on the counter at room temperature. They should keep for up to a week. Placing a piece of white bread in the container will help keep them from drying out as quickly.

FREEZE

  • Baked Cookie: To freeze these cookies, let them cool completely and then layer them between pieces of parchment paper in a freezer safe bag or container for up to 3 months. Let them thaw at room temperature before serving.
  • Dough: Scoop the dough balls onto a lined cookie sheet. Do not add M&Ms on top. Flash freeze by placing them in the freezer for a couple of hours until frozen. Transfer to a freezer safe storage container, label and freeze for up to 3 months. Allow dough to thaw before adding M&M’s on top and baking.

  1. 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!

  2. The instructions are a bit vague. How big of a bag of M&M’s? Do any M&M’s get mixed in with the dough, if so how much? Or are they only used to put on top of each cookie? Should the cookie dough balls be pressed down, or will they melt into shape like regular chocolate chip cookies? Just trying to plan ahead to minimize unexpected goofs. . .

    1. It’s just a regular size bag of m&m’s and they are just used to put on top. It’s up to you, how many you want on top. You only press the m&m’s in slightly, so no other need to press the cookies down. They will flatten out as they cook. Hope that helps! Enjoy!

  3. I don’t have oreos and don’t want to make another trip to the store. Do you think these will still taste yummy without the oreos?

    1. You could get close to 3 dozen. It just depends on how big/small you make them 🙂 These are so good, I hope you like them!

  4. 5 stars
    I was looking for a new cookie recipe. Usually I go for the recipes with lots more reviews. I am so glad I took a chance on this one. Would give it six stars if I could. They are too delicious!
