Mostly Homemade Mint Chocolate Brownies!

If you thought mint was just for Christmas time, than my friend you are dearly mistaken! Mint (of just about every variety) is my favorite flavor year-round! I’m calling these mint chocolate brownies mostly homemade, because we will be using a box mix of brownies. This isn’t a recipe you can whip up quick and run out the door with though, it does require some cooling/chilling/setting to occur before the eating portion of the project 🙂

This is a fantastic recipe that I have borrowed from Wine and Glue. I’ve linked it here for you! I doubled the amount of chocolate (on accident) and my topping turned out like a thick chocolate layer rather than a frosting. Believe me, it’s still delicious though. Much like the mint chocolate cookies from my dreams, these taste like an Andes Chocolate! Swoon! I will definitely be playing around with this recipe and you will see this reincarnated sometime soon! Give these a try today, you won’t be disappointed!

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups Powdered Sugar
  • 8 tablespoons (one stick) of butter very very softened, almost to the point of melting
  • Green food coloring
  • 1 ½ teaspoons Mint extract
  • 2 tablespoons of milk
  • 12 ounces chocolate chips
  • 8 tablespoons (one stick) of regular ole butter
  • Box of Brownie Mix (and what is required for the mix- mine called for 2 eggs, water, and oil)

The Minting Process (lol):

  • Bake your brownies in a 9×13 pan per the box instructions. Cool to room temp before adding the green layer.

  • Mix together your powdered sugar, milk, butter, mint, and green food coloring. I only had neon food colors on hand for lord only knows what reason, so I used green and few drops of blue to make it not so shocking to look at.

  • Pour over your cooled brownies and smooth over the top.Let set up in the fridge (or a cold garage) for about 30 minutes.

  • After your 30 minutes are up, grab your brownies, butter, and chocolate chips and let’s get melty! Enjoy this cute photo of Ted:

  • Add your solid stick of butter and chocolate chips to a saucepan and melt over a medium-low heat. Stir frequently to prevent the chocolate from burning.

Look at this chocolate goodness 🙂
  • Once completely melted, pour over your green layer, and spread evenly over the top. Once it’s beautifully choco-fied pop that bad boy into the fridge more another (agonizing) 30 minutes to allow the chocolate to set up!

  • Slice, serve, and enjoy!

I had to take these to my office to prevent Mike and I from eating them all! Enjoy!
