  2. Add flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt. Mix just until blended. Stir in chocolate chips.
  3. Pour into a greased 8"x 8"x 3" baking dish. Set aside. 

Cream Cheese Batter
  1. In a mixing bowl, add softened cream cheese, egg, sugar, and vanilla extra. Mix for about 2 minutes to get creamy. 

  2. Add mint extract and green food coloring. Mix until cream cheese mixture is green.

Assembly and Baking
  1. Pour green cream cheese mixture evenly on top of the brownie batter. Put quartered Oreo cookies into the cream cheese batter so that they are partially submerged.
