It’s almost St. Patrick’s Day so I decided I needed to post a “green” recipe. I think green equals mint so here you go . . .my favorite mint brownies. I could eat these every single day. I love brownies in any form, but I think mint brownies are right up there at the very top of my list. They are a classic and everyone needs a tried and true mint brownie recipe.
I’ve been making these brownies ever since I was a kid. The recipe is typed on a tattered, worn blue index card. I think it used to be in a plastic cover that must have gotten melted somehow because there are some burn marks and pieces of melted plastic on the card. Some of the typing is faded and hard to read. I should really rewrite it on a new recipe card, but that old blue index card has sentimental meaning to me so I keep it. I actually stole it from my mom when I got married and I’ve never returned it . . . sorry mom.
The combination of fudgy chocolate brownies topped with a creamy mint frosting layer and then finished off with a decadent layer of chocolate frosting is completely fabulous! I usually one and a half the mint layer, just because it’s frosting and a brownie can never have too much of it. I prefer a chocolate frosting layer instead of a chocolate ganache layer just because again, I’m a frosting fanatic.
These brownies are fabulous in any way, shape or form, but I love them chilled!Print
