Peppermint Cookie Brownies

Alright folks… let’s keep the brownie kick alive for a little virtual bake day today with Gold Medal Flour. My holiday baking streak is going strong and there’s no turning back now.

Today I made peppermint cookie brownies. They are insane to say the least. My mom was having a big ceramic/art open house this past weekend and I thought these would be the ideal treat for her to serve to all her friends. That’s one of my favorite parts of the holidays – baking for others! Homemade holiday gifts are my go-to for neighbors and friends, so there are the perfect way to show them all a little love.

Side note – if you haven’t taken a peek at all her beautiful ceramics, you should probably check them out!! They are gorgeous. We had a big time cyber monday sale a few days ago… and there are still a few fab items up for grabs!

Anyways… back to the brownies! These babies are laced with peppermint oreo cookies, a healthy dose of cocoa powder and Gold Medal unbleached all-purpose flour. I’m hooked. It’s the most perfect chocolate-y bite that ever existed. They remind me of my grandmas brownies that she makes us anytime we go visit in Chicago. Except she dusts hers with powdered sugar – she’s fancy like that!

    Mmm! These are on my Holiday Baking Insanity to-do list! How do you think they would come out with crushed candy canes on top? I give loads of goodies as gifts, so I like as much visual appeal as possible.

    If I can’t get find mint oreos (am in the UK) can I use regular oreos and mint flavouring? If so, how much would I use? Thanks Gaby!

    • Gaby

      yes! I’d add 1/2 teaspoon of peppermint extract to the brownies!

  16. Kerry

    Hi! If I’m using an 8×8 foil pan would I cook it differently? It’s one of those to go “EZ foil cake pan”

    • Gaby

      yes those retain heat differently so you’ll def want to keep your eye on it
