Mint and chocolate is such a classic, delicious flavor combination for Dessert Recipes. From cookies and cakes to brownies and ice cream, mint chocolate makes everything taste good, especially during the holidays. This over-the-top Mint Chocolate Oreo Chip Cookie recipe is so good (and easy!), you’ll be finding any excuse to bake them.

Mint Oreo Chip Cookies are just as easy as to make as your favorite Chocolate Chip Cookies, with a few fun mix-ins you probably have on hand. The best part is you can adjust them to exactly how you like them. Not a fan of so much minty flavor? Cut back on the mint extract. Can’t get enough mint? Swap in mint Oreos and mint chocolate chips!

This Mint Oreo Chip Cookie uses food coloring for bright, festive green cookies perfect for Christmas or St. Patrick’s Day. If you don’t use food coloring, the cookies will be light golden brown. Leave out the mint for a cookies and cream pudding cookie or use chocolate pudding mix to make fudgy, chocolate mint oreo cookies.


Tips for Mint Oreo Chip Cookies

  • Line a light metal baking sheet with parchment paper and spray with baking spray to make sure that the cookies don’t stick. If you have one, use a muffin top pan for picture-perfect round cookies.
  • Don’t over-mix the cookie dough. Heat is generated as you stir so stirring too much will melt the butter and give you flat, dense cookies.
  • To keep from over-mixing, bring all your ingredients to room temperature. The butter should be softened but not melted, soft to the touch without any liquid.
  • For the ultimate chocolate chip cookie sundae, serve one or two warm Mint Oreo Chip Cookies with Vanilla Ice Cream. Drizzle with Chocolate Ganache (add mint flavor to the ganache!), top with Whipped Cream, and sprinkle with chopped Andes mints.

  • Cookies: Use other Oreo cookie flavors like Mint Oreos, Peppermint Oreos, or Golden Oreos. Other hard sandwich cookies would also work in this cookie dough, or try Thin Mints for an extra special mint cookie!
  • Mix-Ins: Reduce the Oreos to ½ cup (or swap the chocolate chips) and add another mix-in like M&Ms, chopped nuts, peppermint candies, or toffee bits to the cookie dough.
  • Chocolate Chips: Swap out the semi-sweet chocolate chips for dark chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, or chocolate chunks. For more mint chocolate flavor, use Andes mints, roughy chopped, mint baking chips, or peppermint crunch chips.
  • Sour Cream: If you want the cookies a bit more tender, you can add ¼ cup sour cream to the batter, adding 2 tablespoons more flour to even out the moisture.
  • Cake Mix: Substitute a box of white cake mix or fudge brownie mix for the dry ingredients in this Mint Oreo Chip Cookie recipe. No other adjustments are needed to use cake mix or brownie mix.



  • Serve: Mint Oreo Chip Cookies can be kept at room temperature for up to 4 days. Keep in an airtight container in a cool, dry area.
  • Store: Refrigerate Mint Oreo Chip Cookies in a paper towel lined airtight container with parchment paper between layers so they don’t stick. Serve at room temperature to bring back chewy, softness.
  • Freeze: Bring Mint Oreo Chip Cookies to room temperature, place on a baking sheet, and freeze for 1 hour. Transfer cookies to a sealed container or freezer-safe bag and freeze for up to 6 months. Enjoy frozen or thawed!

    1. Sour Cream: If you want the cookies a bit more tender, you can add 1/4 cup sour cream to the batter, adding 2 tablespoons more flour to even out the moisture.

  1. I made these cookies for my kiddos; they cannot get enough! They didn’t even last a night before they ate them up! The recipe was super easy to follow as well!

  2. I love a good chocolate mint combo, and these cookies were amazing! I’ll be making them again for St. Patrick’s Day!

  3. i’m an oreo fan and these mint oreo chip cookies delight me! They were easy to make and turned out so well. I am so satisfied and happy!

    1. The final recipe was adjusted without sour cream, but if you’d like to try it with, we tested 1/4 cup sour cream with 2 tablespoons additional flour. It’s a more tender cookie, but recipe testing without it scored better.

    1. Sorry the recipe doesn’t have pudding, it was a previous iteration I was testing. I fixed the post.

  4. I don’t see instant pudding mix listed in the ingredients. Is that an ingredient needed for this recipe or is that for a different recipe?

      1. Sorry for the confusion, no pudding mix in these, I worked on that recipe more to not include the mix.

    1. I’ve not tested this recipe using anything else but usually you can substitute eggs with applesauce or banana. If you decide to play around with it, I’d love to know what worked. Thanks!
