Oreo Mint Brownie Explosion

oreo_mint_fudge_brownie

 

Holy Wow batman! Incredible!

Chocolate and Mint is one of my favorite combos, but the combination of these 3 recipes to make Oreo Mint Brownie and yeah don’t forget the explosion part!

So Sinful ~ and so worth it!

I had a package of Andes Mints in my pantry and this is where the idea came from originally.

But then when I got a hold of Mint Oreos, well it was game on!

My fudge brownie recipe just got hijacked by the mint train!

Andes Mints folded into the batter, Mint Buttercream Layer (green of course) and a final icing of chocolate ganache.

Chopped Mint Oreos piled high~ and you my friend will be as happy as I am right now (yes I am eating them as I type!)

The Andes Mints candy part in the brownie batter is optional,  you can actually use whatever substitution you like.

After 8 Mints? junior Mints? More chopped Oreos? Girl Scout Thin Mints?

Run with it! Make it your own~ but be sure to let me know all about it!

I get so excited talking desserts! And Building on Recipes in my FAV topic!

Rocky Road Brownies

My fudge brownie recipe has to be the best brownie to carry a zillion other combinations!

When I owned my bakery I used to come up with weekly ideas for what to pile on top of them!

Girl Scout Samoa Brownies, Mocha Buttercream Blaster Brownies!

Mint, Caramel you name it!

But I have to say, I never tried the Rocky Road Brownies until today!

Where was my brain?  This is AMAZING! I could have been rich! LOL

Marshmallows, pecans and ganache!?

I don’t think I have to try to sell this to you ~ the picture speaks for itself!

This simple building on recipes technique is easy as long as you have your base recipe of ganache and brownie batter prepared ahead of time.
