Remember last week when I said these were my new favorite cookies? Well, I have a new favorite. Still involving my beloved oreos but this time, MINT oreos! I have seen these in stores for so long and I have NO idea what took me so long to buy them! They are heaven in my mouth. I am obsessed with mint chocolate anything – I have a chocolate mint milkshake pretty much every night. I may have a problem.. Anyway, I really wanted to use them in some cookies since I discovered that adding cookies into cookies is the most genius thing ever. I decided to add them to one of my favorite chocolate cookie recipes and instead of adding plain old boring chocolate chips, I used some Andes mints! I had some sitting in my cabinet begging to be used so this was the perfect opportunity. The cookies are chewy and rich in chocolate flavor with a minty crunch from the oreos. The Andes mints are the perfect inclusion because they get gooey and melty and add even more mint chocolate flavor.
I really can’t even tell you how excited I am about these cookies. Ya know what the best part about them is? Nobody in my house likes mint chocolate anything. So, you know what that means? I had these all to myself! Thank the heavens for that. Theres something about mint and chocolate together that is so refreshing! Leave it to me to find a chocolate-loaded dessert refreshing. Ha! Sometimes I question myself.
After the first day, the cookies are best warmed up in the microwave for a few seconds to get the chocolate all melty and soft.
If you love mint chocolate, you will adore these cookies just as much as I do!
