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!


And while we are on the subject of cookies, make sure you sign up for our Cookie Cravings cookbook email list! Cookie Cravings will go on sale NEXT week! We are excited and we hope you are too! And come back tomorrow, because I have a fun giveaway to share with all of you:)

  25. 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

  26. The only thing that would make these better is if I could run to your place and grab one NOW!!!

  27. These look so delicious, wish I had tried them, but who needs an excuse to use these yummy ingredients?! I will be making them soon πŸ™‚

    1. These are absolutely delicious!! Couldn’t find the Guitard chips so I used Andes baking chips. I highly recommend them!! Especially for the holiday season!!!

  28. 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!

  29. 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…

    1. 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!

  30. 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! πŸ˜€

  31. 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..

  32. 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

  33. I really want to make these but I can’t find the mint green chocolate chips…where can I find them?

    1. I can usually find them at Dan’s in Salt Lake City or Winco. I hope that helps! They are Guitard brand.

  34. OK, seriously, I am making these cookies right now and the dough is so thick, it is nearly impossible to stir the chips in. Was this your experience too?

  35. 4 stars
    These cookies were a hit at my son’s youth group! Already making them again for another event!
