Andes Mint is probably one of my favorite American candy.

Tips and Tricks:

A few tips and tricks to make the best brownie ever!

  • Make sure brownies are cool before adding icing, if not icing would melt and become watery.
  • To speed up cooling process, cool brownies in the refrigerator.
  • Make sure icing is set before cutting brownies into pieces. If not it gets a bit messy.
  • To make the icing/cutting process easier, lift parchment paper and brownie out from the dish and lay it on a flat surface before adding icing and cutting it into smaller pieces.
  • Lift brownies from the square dish after a few minutes or as soon as you can so that it would not overcook
  • Test for doneness by inserting a toothpick into brownie. If it comes out clean brownie is done cooking and should be remove from the oven promptly!

Ingredients

Chocolate Brownies

  • 5 oz 45-60% dark chocolate
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter melted
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder

Mint Icing

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter melted
  • 1 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tbsp 2% milk
  • 1 tsp mint extract
  • 1 drop green food coloring optional

Other

  • ~20 Andes Mint Candy

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F

Chocolate Brownies

  • Cut dark chocolate into smaller pieces and melt dark chocolate pieces and unsalted butter in microwave on 50% power in 20 seconds increment until chocolate is completely melted. Stir every 20 seconds.
  • Bring melted chocolate and unsalted butter to a medium bowl, then add granulated sugar, brown sugar, vanilla extract and eggs. Mix well to combine.
  • Add salt, all purpose flour and cocoa powder to bowl. Mix well to combine.
  • Pour brownie batter into a 9"x9" square dish lined with parchment paper. Highly recommend using parchment paper because it will make it easier to lift the brownie out of the dish later.
  • Bring brownie to oven and bake for 40 minutes. At the 40 minute mark, remove and slide a toothpick into the center of the brownie to check for doenness. If toothpick comes out clean, brownie is done. If it does not come out clean, bring brownie back to the oven and bake for another minute to two until toothpick comes out clean.
  • Remove brownie from oven, and let it cool for 5 minutes. Lift parchement apper and brownie out of the dish and let brownie cool on a cooling rack for about an hour. You can speed up the cooling process by bringing brownie to the fridge (but do not cover because condensation will happen).

Mint Icing

  • While waiting for brownies to cook, combine all the incredients under "Mint Icing". Whisk using electrical whisk for a smoother icing.

Combine it all together!

  • Once brownie is cool (no longer warm to the touch), spread mint icing evenly onto the top of brownie. Bring brownie to the refridgerator to cool for 20-30 minutes, or until the mint icing hardens (so it is easier to slice the brownie).
  • Slice brownie into nine (or more if you would like!) square pieces.
  • Chop Andes Mint candies into small pieces, and sprinkle andes mint pieces onto the top of the brownies.
  • Serve and enjoy!

    I made these brownies this morning to take to a luncheon today. They were easy to make and were really enjoyed by everyone. They smelled wonderful while baking and I could hardly wait to try them. The mint frosting really adds to the over all flavor. I will be making them again for a St Patrick’s day supper at church in a couple of weeks. Thanks for sharing this recipe!!
