I love Oreos… but only in other desserts like ice cream, cakes, cake pops, or these delicious cookies. Once I saw the mint flavored Oreos on the shelf, I had to make something with them. I mean, it’s the holidays, right? I managed to get through all of December without baking anything with peppermint in it so I figured these would be a great compromise.

I knew they were going to turn out good, but I had no idea they would be so yummy! I made sure not to crush the Oreos too much so that the cookie itself would remain a light color. I used a gallon zip lock bag with half a package of Oreos and went to town with a sauce pot. I guess I could’ve used a food processor or a blender, but, like I said, I wanted them to be pretty large.

They turned out PERFECT! You must try this recipe with any flavored Oreos and tell me how it goes for you.
