Mint Oreo Brownies (easy)

It’s that time of year to enjoy the magic and flavors of Christmas.  I’ve always been a fan of mint brownies.  This quickie Mint Oreo Brownie recipe isn’t quite the same, but it does still combine the great flavors of chocolate and mint and is so simple to make-something we can always appreciate when we need another batch of treats to take or a fun goodie to share with friends.

All you need is two ingredients-brownie mix and these great special edition Oreos.  You can use the Peppermint (red filling) or the Mint (green filling) for these fun Christmas Brownies!

Rhubarb Pie Bars

Okay Rhubarb lovers – this one’s for you!  My mom’s Rhubarb Custard Pie has always been my personal favorite.  I love the mix of the tart rhubarb combined with the creamy filling – perfection.  These Rhubarb Pie Bars have that same great flavor in an easy-to-make bar.  A simple shortbread crust is a yummy stand-in for the pie crust and the taste is just like the amazing pie.

Apple Pie Bars


It happens every year in September – a deep craving for fall!  Of course that includes apple pie and all the wonderful flavors fall has to offer.  I love these Apple Pie Bars for any gathering; the taste of apple pie in an easy to serve bar.


You can serve them as is, or to take things completely over the top, serve them warm out of the oven with a scoop of ice cream and a drizzle of caramel!
