Andes Mint Chocolate Chip Brownies

Andes Chocolate Chip Mint Brownies

I’m not a big corned beef and cabbage gal so when it comes to St. Patrick’s Day, we just stick with the desserts.  And anything chocolate-y and minty and I’m in!  And this recipe did not disappoint.  These brownies are delicious!

 They are perfect just like this.

I added a little peppermint extract to the frosting to give it a little more flavor but you don’t have to do this.  Cream cheese would be a good addition too!

Mint Chocolate Chip Brownies

Ingredients

    For the Brownies
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 pkg (12oz) bittersweet chocolate chips (60% cacao)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • For the Frosting

  • 2 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 Tbsp milk
  • 1 drop green food coloring

  • 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. In a large microwave safe bowl, combine the butter with chocolate chips. Heat for one minute on high. Stir and microwave for another 30 seconds. You may need to stir and heat for one more round of 30 seconds until fully melted. Add sugar, flour, eggs and salt. Stirring until well blended.
  2. If using a silicone mold, you don't need to grease it. (If you are using a metal pan, you may want to lightly grease with baking spray). Drop dough by large tablespoons until evenly divided into pan.
  3. Bake in a 375 degree oven for 12-14 minutes. Remove and cool in pan 5 minutes, then cool completely on wire rack.
  4. For the frosting, beat butter for 2 minutes. Add powdered sugar, milk and green food coloring. Beat an additional 3-4 minutes until light and fluffy, scraping down the sides as necessary.
  5. Fold in 1/2 cup Andes creme de menthe baking chips. Pipe onto brownies.
  6. Melt remaining 1/2 cup of Andes baking chips for 30 seconds in microwave. Stir and heat and additional 15 seconds until melted. Spoon into a small plastic bag and snip off the corner. Drizzle over brownies and sprinkle immediately with mini chocolate chips.
