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!
- 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.
- 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!
