minty double fudge oreo crunch cookies

I used this double fudge oreo crunch cookies recipe the other night and turned it minty. 

Let me first tell you about how the dough tasted a lot like brownie dough. And I love brownie dough.

I put in crushed mint Oreos and mint m&m's.

I think it could have done without the mint m&m's just because the mint of the m&m's was a different mint of the Oreos. Still good, though.

I love cookie scoops. They make my life easier.

 Here they are all baked and everything

Unflattering pictures, I know, but it was very late in the nighttime and this really was as good as it was going to get.
Could I have possibly waited to take a picture until day time and take the time to plate them and everything?
No.... I think not.

But do make them if you want a delicious cookie. They taste much better than they look here.

Minty Double Fudge Oreo Crunch Cookies
makes about 30 cookies
1 cup butter, at room temperature
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup mint m&m's
1 cup crushed mint Oreo cookies*

Cream butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla until fluffy. Add flour, cocoa powder and baking soda and mix until combined.
Fold in m&m's and crushed Oreos. Refrigerate dough for 2-4 hours (or more). When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350. Roll dough into balls or scoop with a cookie scoop and set on baking sheet.
Bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes. Let cool completely.

*(I doubled my recipe and used almost a whole package of mint Oreos.. I think it tastes better with more, so put in as many as you want!)
