Mint Oreo Cookie Brownies have a base of brownies packed with mint Oreos, cookies and cream frosting, and a chocolate ganache layer on top.
It has to be said. These minty brownies are very rich–almost candy-like. Cut in small pieces.
Grasshopper cookies are part of our camping memories. (I realize these come in many forms, but I’m referring to mint Oreos.) Eating them always reminds us of our camping adventures. Do you have food memories like that?
When I saw the recipe for Cookies and Cream Brownies, I was anxious to try it with grasshopper cookies. I am happy to report they are just as good as the original recipe, especially if you favor the mint-chocolate combination.
Use your own favorite brownie recipe for the base, if you like, but I’m warning you. The frosting and ganache are rich so a decadent brownie would be overkill in my opinion. I use this microwave brownie recipe.

- 4 ounces semi-sweet chocolate (I like Ghiradelli)
