Mint M&M Oreo Cookies

Mint M&M Oreo Cookies that taste JUST like Thin Mints!! The combination of the chocolate in the Oreos with the mint flavor in the M&M's make for one DELICIOUS cookie!!

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. ๐Ÿ™‚

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. ๐Ÿ™‚

    A brownie version is a grand idea!! May just have to try it out. Thanks!!! Have a great day! ๐Ÿ™‚

Jill @ Create.Craft.Love.

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!!

    Lil' Luna

    Hi Jill! Thanks for the sweet comment. Did you end up making these? Dying to know what you thought…. ๐Ÿ™‚


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. ๐Ÿ™‚


My hubby would die for these! Yummo!!

    You may also. They are so delish – and easy!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

I call it perfectionism – not OCD! They look amazing. TFS!

    LOL! That’s right – perfectionism… not OCD. Okay, maybe just a little OCD. ๐Ÿ˜‰


Oh stop it. Stop it right now. You’re ruining my diet!! I’m loving all of your fun St. Patty’s day posts! I need to get on the ball! ๐Ÿ™‚

These have been pinned!!

    LOL!!! I wonder why I can’t lose my baby weight and then I look at all the fun things I want to bake and I know why!! ๐Ÿ™‚

These cookies look yummy! Love the mint twist. Thanks for sharing ๐Ÿ™‚

    Lil' Luna

    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. ๐Ÿ™‚


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

    Lil' Luna

    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!! ๐Ÿ™‚

Dezi A

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

    Lil' Luna

    I’m warning you Dezi – they were pretty good!! ๐Ÿ™‚


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

    Lil' Luna

    Dang!! You may have to order some online. ๐Ÿ™ I didn’t think I’d like them as much with them being dark chocolate, but they were DELISH! ๐Ÿ™‚

Lane @ Supper for a Steal

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.

    Lil' Luna

These look so yummy, I will be making them for Sunday St. Patty’s Day! I will be putting them into cone shaped card stock for my secret sister at church! Thanks for the GRAND idea! I just so happen to have all the ingredients also! Yay! Thanks again love your site…I will be coming on here often now! ๐Ÿ™‚


These are delicious!!! Oh my gosh! Totally winning! Thank you!


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!

Love these cookies…they look delicious. I featured them in a round up of St.Patrick’s Day cookies and cupcakes on my blog. Cheers.

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. . .

    Lil' Luna

    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!

Kayla McEachron

About how many cookies does this make? Thanks!

    Lil' Luna

    Possibly 3 dozen. It depends on how big you make them. Hope that helps! Enjoy!


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?


How many cookies does this recipe make?

    Kristyn Merkley

    You could get close to 3 dozen. It just depends on how big/small you make them ๐Ÿ™‚ These are so good, I hope you like them!
