I LOVE anything mint chocolate. Seriously - ice cream, cookies, cake, cupcakes, truffles - I love them all. I actually think that I could eat a grasshopper if it were dipped in minty dark chocolate. (Maybe)
If you are a member of the mint chocolate fan club like me (there really should be a support group) then I have the PERFECT recipe for you - Mint Chocolate Brownies. Yup - I just went there. Fudgey, moist chocolate brownies covered in a layer of cool, creamy mint frosting and topped with a final layer of dark, chocolate ganache.
Mint Chocolate Brownies
2 cups butter
8 ounces unsweetened chocolate
4 cups sugar
2 1/2 cups flour
1 cup butter
4 cups powdered sugar
4 Tablespoons milk
2 teaspoons peppermint extract
drop of green food coloring
1 cup butter
2 cups dark chocolate chips
Put in a cold oven and set heat to 300 degrees. Bake 40 minutes.
Combine frosting ingredients in bowl of standing mixer. Beat with flat beater until smooth and creamy. Spread over cooled brownies.
For ganache: Melt chocolate and butter in microwave.
Spread over mint frosting layer.
Allow chocolate to set then slice into squares. (This is trickier than you might think. Wipe your knife off on a paper towels after each cut for the cleanest slices.)
Trim off any jagged edges and voila - mint chocolate brownies!!!
These brownies are seriously delicious - and I'm not just saying that because I'm obsessed with mint and chocolate. They really are yummy - trust me.
