Recipe: Mint Oreo Brownies

Recipe: Mint Oreo Brownies
Add a pop of mint for a festive color and flavor. (Southern Bite)

These Mint Oreo Brownies are perfect for snacks, parties and celebrations or just about anything. Scratch-made brownies are filled with broken Oreo cookies (y’all know those are my favorite). To add a little festive color and  flavor, we add Mint Oreos. Yes, please.

I just love the little pop of mint these have.  It’s great without being overpowering.

And while a boxed brownie mix is super easy and pretty dang delicious (I love those Ghirardelli brownie mixes), you seriously won’t believe how easy it is to make them from scratch.

These brownies are just plain ol’ delicious. (Southern Bite)

Serve them up with a glass of ice-cold milk, and you’ve got a fun after-school snack to serve the kiddos. They’re also mad delicious with a big ol’ scoop of vanilla ice cream right on top… but I didn’t say that. Who are we kidding? Yes, I did.

Y’all enjoy.
