Chocolate Mint Brownies

February 5, 2015Teresa

Chocolate Mint Brownies are outstanding! These brownies are doubly good because they have dark roast chocolate mint chips in the chocolate brownie batter. Plus, the icing is made with them, yum. I love chocolate and mint together. It’s a marriage made in heaven, in my opinion. Yes, this dessert has the one-two-three trifecta! Chocolate, chocolate mint chips, and icing. All of which make this one spectacular brownie.

My husband is gracious enough to do a lot of my grocery shopping for me. I’ve been working non-stop on my blog for 16 months trying to get all (almost 1,000) posts along with their corresponding pictures updated, edited, watermarked and recipe cards loaded.

So whenever I’ve been super busy trying to get all of this updated, John has offered (or has been volunteered by me) to go grocery shopping for me. He was picking up some baking goods for me a couple of weeks ago, and found these Dark Roast Chocolate and Mint Chips on close out after the holidays. He brought home 7 bags of them! So I’ve been trying to come up with recipes to use them.

I have to admit I really liked working with these chips and they turned out some pretty delicious brownies. I’ve never seen these in the grocery store during the holiday season before. I’m not even sure there’s much availability other than the holidays for these particular chips, unless you find them online at Amazon or somewhere. Even still, if you can get your hands on some, the dark-roasted chocolate flavor is superb.

I borrowed from my Fudge Frosted Brownies to make this recipe. Instead of using nuts, I added the dark roast chocolate mint chips. Because I had so many packages of chips I melted one and a half packages and used it to spread on top as icing. It was wonderful.

I allowed the icing to cool completely before cutting into bars. That way, it had a chance to air dry. That took about 45 minutes to an hour. I didn’t want to cut into the brownies beforehand and have a goopy mess, so I waited, and waited, and waited! Finally, the icing was dry enough to cut. Wow, what an explosion of flavor.

If you’re looking for a wonderful Chocolate Mint Brownie recipe, this one will surely satisfy. It’s got a rich, dense texture, extra flavor from the dark roasted chocolate mint chips. And, of course, frosting always makes everything better!

    Teresa, these brownies look sooo good! I’m not really a mint person, but pair mint with chocolate and that is a whole different story. I saw those chocolate chips at Christmas time and now wish I had bought some. Pinning this recipe for when I do!
