Mint Chocolate Oreo Brownies

1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
1 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips, melted
2 large eggs
2 tablespoons corn syrup
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon mint extract
3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1/3 cup bread flour
9 Mint Oreos (or more!)
Chopped mint chocolate (optional)

Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Line an 8x8-inch baking pan with foil; coat foil with cooking spray.

In a large mixing bowl, using a mixer on medium speed, beat together butter, sugar and melted chocolate until well combined. Add eggs; increase mixer speed to high, and beat an additional 2 minutes. Reduce mixer speed to low and beat in corn syrup, salt, baking soda, mint extract and cocoa powder until well combined. Beat in flour until just combined.

Spread 1/3 of the brownie batter into the bottom of prepared pan. Line with Oreos. Cover with remaining batter. Sprinkle chocolate on top. Bake 25 minutes or until well risen, and only slightly wobbly. Cool completely before lifting out foil and slicing into bars. Chill or freeze for easier slicing.

    I just made Snickers Bar stuffed Choc Chip Cookies and in my comments, I asked people if they'd ever stuffed anything into anything baked goods and one woman said she stuffed Andes mints into things..and then bam, here you did it with Brownies!!!

    My mom makes holiday/xmas candy with andes mints.

  5. oh my gosh those look awesome, Emily. You amaze me with your creations! You always think of something else!!

    I say, skip pastry school and just open up your own bakery now!! (Ok, I know that's easier said than done and costs lots of $$, but seriously, it'd be a hit!!!)

  11. These look divine!! We must think alike because I just made a batch of brownies with mint Oreos in them about 2 weeks ago! Mint and chocolate are one of my favorite combos (PB and chocolate are a close second tho..)

  17. This is making me think of your Oreo cream cheese brownies (which didn't win the company bake off last year, but they should have!). You know how to combine 'em! Would love to try these now. Send for my next birthday 'cause my name is Rachel too? :-D

    I remember my ex bf loved mint cc ice cream. I loved it because he loved it. Then we broke up and for a long time I couldn't stomach anything mint-chocolate for a long time. Good thing I got over that.

  18. I live in an apartment full of mint chocolate fanatics, so I know that I'll definitely be making these! Your chocolate cake was a hit by the way! I posted about it yesterday.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Oh that's it, I'm definitely making these! These maybe need to be featured on one of my posts with a link back to your lovely blog!

  20. Wow, those look decadent. I love mint-chocolate desserts too, but don't make them so much because they are indeed dangerous to have sitting around!

  23. I just made chocolate mint brownies 2 nights ago!! But I made a mint layer in the center from leftover filling I had for homemade peppermint patties. They were seriously rich. Mint- chocolate is so yummy...your brownies look great!

  24. Those look fudgey and awesome! I love that mint surprise inside. I haven't tried those oreos, gotta check them out.

  25. Oh goodness gracious me! I've never even heard of mint Oreo's, fried Oreo's yes, mint, no way!!! I'll be looking for those for sure.

    In the mean time, I'll be dreaming about those brownies of yours, sinful but oh so heavenly!!!

    Thanks for sharing...

  26. Love your blog, and would love to try these...a couple of questions. I do not usually buy unsalted butter, is salted ok? And not sure if I have bread flour on hand either, so is it ok to use regular??
    Thanks!!!

    ReplyDelete
  27. WOW!! Those look incredible!! At first glance, it looked like you had used the Andes Creme De Menthe Thins that come in the little green foil wrapper. I suppose that would be another variation!

    So glad to hear that you love your new job!! I still think you need to be on the Food Network staff in New York, however!!

  32. I wish I'd seen these before my daughter's 21st birthday two weeks ago - Mint Oreo is one of her favourite flavours. These are amazing! I think I'll have to make them anyway for another good reason - like it's Tuesday or it's sunny or raining or ...

  36. Thanks everyone!

    Averie, your cookies sound so good!

    Mallory, :)

    Rachel, I love you too!

    Anon, it's so nice! I'm enjoying the change!

    Rachel, of course I will!

    Anon, I always use unsalted butter. You can use salted, but I would probably cut the amount of salt in the recipe in half. You don't have to use bread flour. I just did because I wanted a chewier brownie. Bread flour has more gluten in it, which equals more chewiness.

    Jcarden, I'd like that!
