Mint Brownies

Once again a massive chocolate craving struck, and I had to make do with what I had in my cupboard.  I was so excited when I realized I had everything I needed to make some brownies!

RIght before mixing in regular chocolate chips, I decided to make some mint brownies and threw in some mint extract and mint chocolate chips instead. Oh how I loved this impulse decision!

I used my Walnut Brownie recipe as a guide, and baked it in a 9" x 9" pan to make them nice and thick :)

These definitely did the trick, at the first bite I was in heaven! They also made a wonderful addition to my breakfast all week :)

Mint Brownies

  • 1 cup butter or margarine, melted
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp mint extract
  • 2/3 cup cocoa
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup mint chocolate chips
  1. Preheat oven to 350 F and grease a 9" x 9" pan (or spray with baking spray)
  2. Mix the melted butter and sugar together in a large bowl
  3. Add the eggs one a time, and then the extracts
  4. Add the cocoa and mix well
  5. Add the flour, salt, and baking powder and mix until the batter just starts to come together
  6. Fold in the mint chocolate chips and then pour into the prepared pan
  7. Spread with a spatula, and then bake for 35 - 40 minutes (or until a toothpick comes out with some crumbs when inserted)
  8. Enjoy!
