Directions For Oreo Cookie Recipe 

Preheat oven to 350

Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

Mixing ingredients to make cookie recipe

In a small bowl combine flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside. In a standing mixer, beat together the butter and sugars until combined and fluffy. Then, beat in the egg and the vanilla. Gradually beat in the dry ingredients until fully combined. This Oreo dessert recipe requires you to add in the ingredients a bit at a time. 

Fold in 1/2 C green M&M’s, 3/4 C chocolate chips, 1/2 of the chopped Oreos and 1/2 of the crushed Oreos.

Using a medium ice cream scooper, scoop some cookie dough into your hands and roll it into a ball. Mold your cookie. 

Meanwhile, combine the remaining M&M’s, chopped Oreos and crushed Oreos into a bowl and mix until combined. Roll cookie dough into the mixture and place onto the cookie sheet.  Lightly press down onto the cookies into a thick disk.

Repeat steps with remaining dough.

Bake in the oven – 1 tray at a time – for about 10-12 minutes or until lightly golden brown. My oven isn’t so great, so I always have to keep an eye on my cookies. Sometimes I need LESS time. So, keep watching them. 

In a small saucepan, heat up the heavy whipping cream until simmering. Pour chocolate chips into a heat safe glass bowl. Once the heavy whipping cream is simmering, pour into the chocolate chips and allow to sit for 1 minute before whisking until smooth. Using the flavor injector, place the needle into the bowl and pull the knob up on the injector to pull up some chocolate ganache. Poke the side of the cookie and inject ganache into the cookie until the top cracks. Yum and Yum. I told you this chocolate mint cookie recipe was one for the books! 

Repeat steps on all the remaining cookies.
