Triple Layer Fudge Mint Oreo Brownies

St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner and just in case you’re looking for something to celebrate with, you have come to the right place.

I have never done much to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in the past, so this year I figured the least I could do was bake up a to-die-for dessert in honor of the day.  I wanted to make something green and green is what I got (I suppose I could have made some sort of salad, but what fun is that!?)

Mint and chocolate are meant to be together.  It is truly a match made in heaven.  If you love mint, love brownies, and love Oreos, you will LOVE the combo in this recipe!  I bet you can almost taste these now…

GO GREEN!

INGREDIENTS:

7 ounce jar of marshmallow fluff

8 drops+ green food coloring, or until desired shade of green is reached

1 box of brownie mix – make according to directions on the box

12 Mint Oreo Cookies + 18 Mint Oreo Cookies (an entire  package), crumbled by hand

3/4 cup white chocolate chips, melted

1 batch vanilla frosting ( ingredients are below in step 4)

DIRECTIONS:

Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a 9×13-inch pan with foil and spray it with cooking spray. In medium bowl, stir together marshmallow fluff and 4 drops of food coloring, or until light green color is achieved.

In a large bowl, prepare the brownie mix as directed on box, using water, oil, eggs, and then fold in 12 hand-crumbled Oreos.

Spread brownie batter in prepared pan. Drop about 1/2 cup of green marshmallow mixture onto brownie batter and reserve the remainder. Gently pull a table knife through the batter in S-shaped curves for a swirled design. Bake 23 to 25 minutes or until brownies are set, do not overbake. Cool completely or put the pan into the freezer for 10 minutes if you are in a hurry.

While brownies are cooling, make vanilla frosting by combining the following and beating until fluffy and set frosting aside once done.

1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened

3 to 4 cups powdered sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

splash of milk, if necessary for consistency

In another small microwave-safe bowl, melt the white chocolate chips (microwave on high for 30 seconds; stir and microwave 30 seconds longer; stir until smooth, be careful not to scorch as white chocolate scorches easily

Add the melted white chocolate chips and the vanilla frosting to the reserved green marshmallow mixture. Stir in 4 drops or more of food coloring, or until light green color is achieved, and spread over cooled brownies.

Sprinkle with 18 hand-crumbled Oreos, slightly pressing them into the green mixture. Allow top layer to set fully before slicing and serving.

You can store these in the refrigerator in an airtight container if you prefer them chilled or freeze for up to 3 months.

      I agree! I meant to say in my post that they would be great for Christmas too. I bet you could mix the Oreos that have the red cream in them too and these would be so festive!

    I made these for my St. Patrick’s Day party where my 10 siblings and their families LOVED these brownies (30+ people). These brownies were an enormous hit, and my three kids are already asking for me to make them again. Yes – they taste even better chilled. Thanks for a great recipe! This recipe is permanently in my recipe box.

    OMG :) This looks so delicious! My favorite taste, after milk chocolate is chocolate-mint…..plus the marshmallow fluff…and the oreos…. just seems irresistible. Unfortunately mint taste (like mint chocolate ice-cream or oreos) is not very popular in Bulgaria :( and mint oreos are nowhere to be found. :(

    • August 22, 2012 at 4:33 PM #

      That’s so sad! Maybe you can order them online! What a pain though :(
