You won't want to frost these brownies, since the marbled top is too pretty to cover up. Besides, the tasty cream cheese layer makes them taste like they're already frosted. The crushed cookies add extra chocolate flavor and a fun crunch. —Darlene Brenden, Salem, Oregon

"I switched regular Oreos for the mint variety. Thought the family would go crazy for this recipe. Flavor was just so-so and while deep in chocolate flavor the the base, overall was not a favorite. Love the concept though and it's certainly a visually appealing recipe."

"I wish that "maybe" were a choice for the question. I might make these again, I'm not sure. The batter for the brownie part was fluffy which seemed strange to me. I didn't add the sandwich cookies because I forgot to pick some up at the store. I added mint extract instead of the vanilla to the top layer. The top layer made it very hard to tell when the brownies were done. I had to use an 8x8 pan because I don't own an 11x7 one. I thought using a bigger one wouldn't work well making them too thin. I just found them ok tasting. The brownie part is kinda blah and I'd prefer the top layer to be sweeter than it is."

"These brownies were delicious. The cream cheese topping that you swirl into the chocolate part really makes them moist and yummy!"

"I had a box of Girl Scout Thin Mints & substituted 24 of them for the 12 sandwich cookies. They were at hit with my co-workers."
