Brownie Covered Peppermint Oreos

When I saw these cookies on Picky-Palate last week, I knew I had to make them.

I immediately thought to use some sort of peppermint flavoring to make them taste "Chirstmas-y", so I used Trader Joe's Candy Cane cookies instead of regular Oreos.

These are the BEST! Get them.

After I baked some I brought a batch to my company's Ugly Sweaters and Cookie Contest.

Most everyone seemed to like them which made me happy.

I lost the cookie contest, though.

Another colleague's Molasses cookies won and I honestly thought she deserved it.

I took home like 11 of her cookies for the weekend.  =)

Make sure to completely coat the cookies.


These cookies are SUPER simple to make.

You just make brownie batter, dip Oreos in it, bake in muffin tins,
(any size will work) and voila!

Brownie Covered Oreos! 

These cookies are better the day that they are made--when they're warm and fresh out of the oven. After a couple of days I found them to be too hard/stale if that is possible.

Other than that, I liked them.  :)

**I borrowed my brother's camera to take these pictures and as you can see...eh.**  

LOL,  thanks anyways Che!

Hey People!!! Hope all is going well with you. Just a quick update:

My camera broke! Boo.

It broke at the most inopportune time, as well.

I was standing on the streets of Geneva, Switzerland, and as I excitedly pointed to a Cafe that had indoor seating, I heard a loud "CRACK". I looked down and saw my beloved blue camera on the floor.

The lens completely broke. 

I may get a temporary camera sometime this week... Hopefully.

Until then, no pictures.

That means I can't document anything that I make.

And, that makes me even sadder.

Hopefully I can get back to blogging this weekend. ::Crosses Fingers::

Other than that, everything is peachy!

For all those who asked, my trip was L-O-V-E-L-Y.  :) I leave you with some photos.

Mmm! Classis Swiss Fondue. so good!

Best buddies! At Tower Bridge in London.

Sticky Toffee Pudding and ice-cream.

Apparently I have a thing for phone booths.

Thanksgiving Dinner! We made all this in Switzerland. I'm still shocked!

Swiss Chocolates...I bought and ate a  ton.

Swiss Alps. Majestic.
We took a random trip to Evian, France and gorged on pastries...well, I did.  :)

The Group  :)

Simply had a lovely time!
