Mint Brownies

Mint Brownies 

Hands down the best mint brownies in the world. Trust me! I know my brownies.


Jennifer Hyde in Logan, Utah gets all the credit. I stole this recipe from her and I am famous in Birdseye, UT for these suckers.

Step 1:

      Preheat oven to 350º. In a medium mixing bowl combine 2 cups sugar, 1 cup melted butter 2/3 c. cocoa and 4 eggs- one at a time, mixing between each. 

Step 2: 

     Add 1 1/2 cup flour and mix until blended.  Pour into greased 9x13” pan and bake for 20-25 minutes.  Allow to cool before frosting.

Step 3:

         Whip together 1 pound powdered sugar, 2 cubes butter, 1-3 T. milk, 4 drops green food coloring and 2 drops peppermint oil or mint extract.  Mix until smooth.  Taste and add more mint oil if needed.  

Step 4:

     Create ganache by mixing 3/4 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips and 1/4 c. butter. Melt in microwave for 1 minute and mix, continue microwaving and mixing until smooth.


      When brownies are cool, frost with mint frosting.  Drizzle with ganache. Store in refrigerator until ready to serve.  Serve at room temperature for best taste.  


      For Festive Christmas Brownies, use red food coloring and add smashed peppermint candycanes to the top.  

Try not to eat the whole pan in one sitting. ✌🏼
