Mint Oreos-Ish

So, my favourite, favourite, favourite things in the whole world are mint oreos. Before that, it was Mint Yoyos (sadly, discontinued). And my favourite things that I make are my mint brownies and peppermint squares.

Sensing a theme? The quickest way to my heart is pairing mint and chocolate and giving  it to me.

So, it’s quite hard to get a hold of mint oreos in the UK. Once I spent £7 on a pack from a London deli, and I regret NOTHING. And in all honesty, that is a good thing. Do you know how many packs I’d eat daily if they were readily available? Doesn’t bear thinking about. I got 2 packs for Christmas last year and I ate them ALL before New Year's and that was with strict rationing.

But, once in a while, I like to treat myself. And I looked up how to whip up a batch for myself.  These are incredibly moreish and delicious, with all the flavour of a mint oreo, if not the exact texture – these are soft rather than crunchy. They are kind of like a "whoopie pie." The best part is that you can decide how much filling you want.. Quadruple-stuff oreo anyone?  YES. For me, I will continue on my search for the perfect mint oreo recipe, but until then, these will make a very delicious mint chocolate biscuit recipe.

I could have iced them a little prettier, but I was really hungry
