If you want to bake something other than sugar cookies for your cookie exchange or holiday gathering, these Mint Oreo Brownies by Chelsea’s Messy Apron are the perfect treat. They’re minty, chocolatey and rich—everything a festive Christmas dessert should be!
The bottom layer of these brownie bars is simply a package of brownie mix with crushed Oreos. It doesn’t get any easier than that! We like anything that’s semi-homemade… hey, we don’t shame a good shortcut! Plus, boxed brownies are fudgy, gooey and delicious!
Then, the middle layer is creamy, melt-in-your-mouth homemade cream cheese frosting! It’s thick and soft and fun because you can add food coloring to dye it any color you want. So whether green or red for Christmas, or blue or orange for your kid’s birthday party, these brownies are adaptable. The addition of peppermint extract is what makes them pop.
And finally, the icing on the cake (literally). The chocolate topping is simply mouthwatering Andes Mint Baking Chips and butter. So the topping also has a minty touch.
