Mint Oreo Brownies

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

Click here for Brownie recipe.  I use 1 cup Guittard milk chocolate chips and 1 cup chopped Oreo's instead of the 2 cups Guittard milk chocolate chips called for. Bake and cool brownies before making frosting.

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.

For Topping
-12 Oreos, chopped
-1/4 cup hot fudge

Top brownies with chopped Oreos and drizzle with hot fudge, if desired.
