I went to BYU, home of the mint brownie, so really this recipe was inevitable. They don't completely replicate the brownies that sustained me through 4 years of college but they have Oreos and hot fudge so what more can I ask? These are a must-make!
Mint Oreo Brownies
For Mint Frosting
-4 Tbsp unsalted butter, softened
-2 cups powdered sugar
-2 Tbsp heavy cream
-1-1.5 tsp pure peppermint extract (Do not use mint extract- your brownies will taste like toothpaste.)
-Green food coloring, if desired
Cream together butter and powdered sugar until smooth. Add heavy cream and peppermint extract. If desired, mix in a few drops green food coloring. Spread frosting over brownies that are completely cool. (If you're impatient you can pop them in the freezer to speed things up.)
If frosting is too thick to spread just add another 1/2 Tbsp heavy cream to get them to the right consistency.
-12 Oreos, chopped
-1/4 cup hot fudge
Top brownies with chopped Oreos and drizzle with hot fudge, if desired.
