A dense chocolate brownie topped with creamy mint filling and a layer of rich fudge- these are the perfect finish to your July 4th cookout!
I’ve been sharing recipes on this blog for several years now, and there are just some recipes that I want everyone to try. These mint brownies are a recipe from my mom and I keep re-making them into different forms because they are just SO GOOD! I’ve filled them with mint, caramel, cookie dough, coconut, praline, candy cane, irish cream, and peanut butter. Just last Halloween I made the recipe into a spiderweb striped tart that was SO fun, and I decided it needed to be remade in patriotic colors for July this year!
Fun- right? And honestly- soooo yummy!
- 1/3 cup butter
- 2/3 cup sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 3 tablespoons of dark cocoa powder (try to use dark- it makes it easier to color the brownie black)
- 2/3 cup flour
- 1/3 cup milk
- 5 cups powdered sugar
- 8 tablespoons butter
- 2 teaspoons mint extract
- 1 cup of dark chocolate chips (again, use dark so it is easier to color black)
- 6 tablespoon of butter
