Mint Chip Oreos

Homemade Mint Chip Oreos

Chocolate Mint Chip Oreos combine two of my big loves–mint and homemade Oreos.  And they’re made with a cake mix so they’re always easy and always dangerously just a few minutes away :)

Mint Chip Oreos

The Story:

When you’re 6-years-old, you don’t have much to fight over with your friends.  Who gets to play which Power Ranger, monkey bars or hop-scotch and the ultimate question: Does the green mint ice cream taste better than the white mint ice cream?

Green is always better.

Mint Chip Oreos

Ingredients

Cookies:
1 box devil's food cake mix (I prefer Pillsbury)
2 eggs
1/3 C. oil
1 Tbsp. brown sugar
Mint Chip Filling:
1/4 C. butter, softened
4 oz. cream cheese
1 tsp. peppermint extract
2-3 C. powdered sugar
green food dye, optional
1/2 C. chocolate chips, chopped

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
2. In a large bowl, combine cake mix, eggs, oil and brown sugar until smooth. Batter will be thick.
3. Make dough balls roughly the size of walnuts and place on cookie sheets 3 inches apart. Bake for 7-9 minutes depending on how brownie-like or cake-like you want them.
4. Let cool.
5. Mint Chip Filling: Beat butter and cream cheese together. Add peppermint extract and slowly add in powdered sugar until you reach your desired thickness. Add in as much green food dye as you want! Fold in chopped chocolate chips.
6. Frosting the bottoms of half the cookies and place the untrusted cookies on top to create little "Oreos."
NOTE: I always chill my Oreos in the fridge for at least 20 minutes or overnight, because I feel like they taste better cold. Give it a shot!

    how would you make the filling if you wanted to do a peanut butter filling instead? substitute the cream cheese with peanut butter and use PB extract instead of mint extract? What do you suggest?

    I am a complete Oreo junkie and these are just calling my name! I suppose there’s something about making them homemade that makes them slightly less naughty!
