Ultimate Mint Brownies: Rich chocolate fudge brownies, with a layer of mint oreo cookies baked into them, are topped with andes mints & crushed mint oreos!
My babies are getting ready to go to preschool and I am not coping with it well, so I have been baking. Lots and lots of baking. Imagine countertops filled with platters of cookies, cakes and a tray of these Ultimate Mint Brownies.
I guess I shouldn’t call them babies anymore since they will be THREE in just eight short days (please pretend you don’t hear me sobbing through your computer), but to me they are still tiny newborns.
So like I said, I have been in a baking frenzy and keeping myself busy in the kitchen. …but then while I am busy whipping up another batch of Pumpkin Cream Cheese Swirl Muffins, the girls start climbing up and helping me whisk and trying to eat the batter.
And while I am NOT a cryer, I have found many a tear running down my face lately at the thought of them going off to school without me.
I know they are going to love school, especially my social butterfly Lyla. And yes, I really need more time to work, but boy am I going to miss spending our days together. And when my sweet Ellie starts crying when it comes time for me to leave on the first day…oh man. I can’t even think about it.
All I am saying is, I hope y’all are ready for the arsenal of baking come August 28th!!! I can tell you one thing, my jeans are absolutely not ready for it. Thank god we are heading into legging and sweater weather!
These Ultimate Mint Brownies are seriously that, the best dang mint brownies…ever. They can be as easy as you want them to be with a box brownie mix…or you can make the brownie part from scratch. It’s up to you!
Then you layer mint oreos along the bottom of the pan and pour your brownie batter on top. Bake them until they are perfectly fudgey.
Out come the brownies from the oven and on go the andes mints! Two packages of andes mints, in fact!
Let those melt a little in the oven for a minute or two, swirl them around and then top it all off with more crushed mint oreos.
These are the ULTIMATE Mint Oreos for good reason. I promise all my mint chocolate lovers are going to obsess over these brownies for years.

I used a 9 x 13 pan to stetch the recipe for a family birthday party. It fed the whole crowd well.
It was a hit. My new favorite dessert. Can’t wait to make again.
This recipe is a keeper! Very rich, minty, and addictive. Love it!!
[…] Ultimate mint brownies […]
Made these for my church potluck. They were a huge hit. They are amazing.
Had to google Andes Mints, must be a regional thing, but they look similar to After Eights. I suppose any mint/chocolate wafer will work. I think I will definitely make this for my oldest’s next birthday. She loves mint chocolate ice cream. She’ll love this!
This look super delicious. Lovely pictures by your side makes it something to give try on this weekend.
What a mixture of emotions come along with that age, right?! Hoping the first day is easy for all. These mint brownies sure do look delicious!
I use cheese dip to cope with moments like these. Mine are 2 & 3 and they will always be my babies. And I know my kids would love helping whip up some of these brownies!
These brownies are packed! I could easily eat half of the pan in one sitting!
These look amazing. My kids would love them!
Oh, my!! These look so decadent and delicious! I love the mint/choco combo! Such a pretty cake plate, too!
Ugh, I’m trying to lose my last 5 pounds but there is no way that’s going to happen after seeing these brownies! Maybe I’ll hit the gym twice to make up for it. Gotta have these!! Chocolate plus mint are my favorite!!
We love Mint Oreos! These really do look like the ULTIMATE mint brownies!
