Chocolate Mint Oreo Cookies

St. Patrick’s Day is on Saturday so this week we will be sharing a few festive green recipes to get you in the mood! These Chocolate Mint Oreo Cookies aren’t all that green, but they do have green mint chips and chopped up Cool Mint Oreo’s, so I think they make a great green treat for St. Paddy’s Day. The green mint chips and Mint Oreo chunks add pops of green color to the dark chocolaty cookies. If you are a chocolate and mint fan, these cookies are for you! They are loaded with chocolate mint goodness!

I started by making a rich chocolate cookie dough. I added chocolate chips, mint green chips, and stirred in chopped up Cool Mint Oreos. FYI-I used Guitard mint green chips and I found the Cool Mint Oreos at Target.

These cookies are rich and decadent with a refreshing mint twist. The cookies are good on their own, but if you want to go all out and add a little more green to the mix, you could make ice cream cookie sandwiches with mint chocolate chip ice cream in the center.

If you are looking for a fun and tasty dessert to make for St. Patrick’s Day, make these Chocolate Mint Oreo Cookies. They are sure to be a hit!

Chocolate Mint Oreo Cookies

Yield: 3 1/2 dozen cookies

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Chocolate cookies with chocolate chips, mint green chips, and chopped up Cool Mint Oreos. These cookies are rich and decadent with a refreshing mint twist.


2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup Hershey's Special Dark Cocoa
1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup light brown sugar
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 1/2 cups mint green chips (I used Guitard)
1 cup chopped Cool Mint Oreo cookies


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat. Set aside.

2. In a medium bowl, sift flour, baking soda, salt, and cocoa. Set aside.

3. With a mixer, cream butter and sugars together until smooth. Add in eggs, one at a time. Next, add in vanilla extract. Mix until blended.

4. Slowly add flour mixture to sugar mixture and mix until flour disappears. Stir in chocolate chips, mint green chips, and chopped Cool Mint Oreos. Drop cookie dough by rounded tablespoons onto prepared baking sheet, about 2 inches apart.

5. Bake cookies for 10 minutes, or until the cookies are set around the edges, but still soft in the center. Don't over bake. Remove from oven and let sit on baking sheet for 3-5 minutes. Move to a cooling rack and cool completely.

  2. Now all I need is some mint chocolate chip ice cream to make some ice cream sandwiches with these!

  3. Chocolate and mint and Oreos…three of my favorite food. :) These cookies look delicious!

  4. Ooh. I will gladly eat a dozen of these in one sitting! And I second what Sylvie says about making ice cream sandwiches out of these. Yum!

  5. Oh my do these cookies look so good! Love the additions of the mint Oreos and the mint chips. :)

    I have been trying to resist buying a package of Oreos ever since the Birthday ones came out, and I think you may have finally broken me! These look too good!

    I couldn’t find the mint chips so substituted Andes mint candies for both chips. They are fabulous. Will look at a specialty store for the chips next time just to taste the original

    Where do you purchase your Guittard mint chips? Do you use any other Guittard chips? I’ve been on the search for their products, and you wouldn’t believe how hard it is to find their chips online and in stores!

  27. catherine — April 6, 2012 @ 11:55 am

    These look fabulous—-but where do you buy the Guittard mint chips? There are none in my town it seems–what stores sell them? I will be in NYC next week–any thoughts on where to buy them? I cant wait to make these…

    • Two Peas replied: — April 6th, 2012 @ 12:30 pm

      I buy the Guittard chips at Dan’s Market or Smith’s-stores in Utah. I haven’t had a problem finding them. I hope you can find some near you! Other brands of mint chips will work too!

    My mother and I just made them and loved them! She made them for a bakesale at her job and I brought them to the kids of my marching band, and both were gobbled up! The only comment on the recipe itself we have are: one batch made 4 and half dozen instead of the promised 3 and 1/2. Not that we’re complaining, but a headsup. Also, they took about twice as long to cook.
    One more thing, we used Ades’s chocolate mint chunks, like the mints you get from the Olive Garden, and they worked just as well.
    Delicious recipe! 😀

    Silpat is the only way to bake cookies. Being a consultant for Demarle at Home, I would never use anything else. Demarle is the maker of the Silpat! They will come out perfect everytime. Anything Mint is my favorite….I will be baking some of these for sure..

    Lovee the Guittard mint chips and the cookie overall…….but I’m not sure what I did wrong because they did not flatten the way the picture looks above. They stayed the shape of the scoop. either way it was very delicious. Can somebody help as to why they didn’t flatten…I am a perfectionist and I wont rest until i get them right!! lol
