How to Make Chocolate Mint Magic Bars

This is such a super easy recipe that you won’t believe how fast it comes together! Here’s how the chocolate chip Oreo cookie bars come together: 

  1. Begin by pressing a package of refrigerated chocolate chip cookie dough in the bottom of a 9×13-inch pan.
  2. Bake for 15 minutes.
  3. Sprinkle half the amounts of both the Mint Oreos and chocolate chunks, all the Andes Mints, and evenly pour the sweetened condensed milk over the top.
  4. Sprinkle the remainder of the Oreos and chocolate chunks, add the Ghirardelli Mint Chocolates, the white chocolate chips, and bake again until done.

What Kind Of Cookie Dough to Use?

I prefer using the flat packages of refrigerated cookie dough for this recipe, rather than the tubes of dough, since it’s easier to smoosh the flat packages but technically either will work.

Can I Use Homemade Cookie Dough?

Of course! If you don’t have refrigerated cookie dough in your area, you could try making a half batch of my Soft and Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies recipe and trying that. However, I haven’t personally tested this recipe this way.

Can I Use Another Type of Chocolate? 

Regarding the various types of chocolate used, such as the Andes Mints and Ghirardelli Mint Chocolates, if you don’t have them in your area or can’t find them, you can substitute with another brand of mint chocolate.

Or simply use another type of plain chocolate bar, noting that if you do so, these definitely will not have as much minty flavor.

Can I Use Regular Oreos Instead of Mint? 

Regular Oreos can be substituted for Mint Oreos as well, if again, you can’t find them in your area.

Tips for Making Mint Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

The loaded mint Oreo mint cookie bars will be very gooey immediately after removing them from the oven so I recommend giving them about 2 hours to cool before slicing into them.

If you’re in a hurry, you could try speeding this process up by placing them in the refrigerator for an hour.

If desired, you could easily split this recipe in half and bake it in an 8×8-inch or 9×9-inch pan. Note that the bake time might need to be altered.
