Chocolate Mint Oreo Cookie Cups

chocoreocookiecupsMint is one of those love-it or hate-it flavors, and I happen to love it.

Peppermints are my jam, yo.  Whenever we go out to eat and the place has a bowl of mints by the cash register, I always ask my family member to each grab a handful and hand them off to me so I can snack on them.  It’s rare to see me without Altoids on my person or gum in my mouth.  And when Christmastime rolls around, I cannot be seen without something peppermint.  I’m obsessed.

But Christmastime aside, I love mint in the summer.  Nothing sounds more refreshing to me than a drippy, super frosty mint chip ice cream cone.  Maybe it’s the nostalgia of childhood summers, but something about that chilly, neon green ice cream with shavings of chocolate hits the spot.

So while shopping a couple days ago, I stumbled upon the cookie aisle (okay, not “stumbled” — I was purposely there and spend the bulk of my shopping time staring at the cookies and snack cakes) and found some Mint Oreos — I knew I had to do something with them.  That creamy mint filling had to be inside of another cookie… so I made these Chocolate Mint Oreo Cookie Cups.  Much like my nostalgic love for mint chip ice cream, these definitely hit the spot.

Chocolate Mint Oreo Cookie Cups
Author: 
Recipe type: Cookies
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 9
 
These mint cookie cups are filled with Mint Oreos and are topped with Mint M&M's for a fun treat.
Ingredients
  • 1 box chocolate cake mix
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup oil
  • 1 tsp mint extract
  • 9 Mint Oreos
  • ½ pkg Mint M&M's
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Liberally grease 9 cavities in a standard muffin tin; set aside. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine the cake mix, eggs, oil and mint extract and blend until soft.
  2. Take a cookie dough scoop and drop a rounded Tablespoon of dough into the bottom of each greased muffin cup. Press a Mint Oreo into the cookie cup, then top with another rounded Tablespoonful of dough. Use your fingers to tuck the cookie dough around the Oreo to seal it in a cup shape. Top with Mint M&M's.
  3. Bake for approx. 20-25 minutes or until centers appear set and edges are lightly browned. Cool for about 15 minutes in the cups before very gently removing them by running a butter knife around the edges. Cool completely. Serve with mint ice cream if you'd like!

DSC_0888AI love how refreshing yet indulgent these cookie cups are!  The fudgy chocolate cookie surrounding the softened Oreo and the crunch of the M&M’s makes eating these an experience in itself.  If mint isn’t your thing, substitute the mint Oreos with peanut butter or berry ones and swap out the M&M’s for something similar!

Have a delicious day!
