Layers of peppermint cookie dough flavored with peppermint marshmallows and peppermint M&Ms atop a fudgey brownie packed with peppermint Oreos.
Who wants one last peppermint treat to close out cookie week? I know I do! After the success of my Marshmallow Oreo Brookies, I figured we needed a peppermint version!
These Peppermint Marshmallow Oreo Brookies have triple the peppermint flavor. The cookie dough layer has peppermint marshmallows and peppermint M&Ms. Between the cookie dough and brownie layer you’ve got peppermint Oreos. Triple peppermint threat.
Brookies are just downright awesome. You’ve got all three of the best snacks: brownies, Oreos and a chocolate chip cookie. Peppermint Oreos can be difficult to find, so if you can’t find peppermint Oreos, feel free to use the “winter” version with the red filling.
This recipe is designed to be baked in a 9”x13”pan. I highly suggest to line your pan with a Silpat, parchment paper or tin foil. Prepare your brownie layer first. I prefer to use Betty Crocker’s Fudgey brownie mix, but you can use any boxed brownie mix, just follow the ingredients listed below. The brownie mix will be thick, so you should spread it with a spatula. Then line the top with your Oreos.
For the cookie dough layer, it will be thick. I’ve packed in peppermint marshmallows and peppermint M&Ms. In order to put the cookie dough on top, you will need to roll up your sleeves and gets your hands dirty. Use the palms of your hands to press together the cookie dough and place on top of the Oreos. If you have extra M&Ms, you can place them into the top of the cookie dough.
I have been baking a TON of cookies lately and my freezer is overflowing. So I packed these up and shipped them off to my dad in Vermont. He was quite surprised and I am sure ate quite a few before deciding to share. These Peppermint Marshmallow Oreo Brookies around bound disappear quick!
