Mint Chocolate Brownies
I made these brownies on Saturday night with a 3 month old strapped to my chest. Life is a lot different these days.
Especially because when I think of anything mint, I think of peppermint schnapps and a horrible night in high school. I still can't smell anything peppermint without having a moment. Am I the only one with a liquor that you just can't even stand to smell, even a lot of years later?
Back to my crazy Saturday night making brownies with a baby. My husband and his friend were hanging out and patiently waiting to try these brownies. So once they were done, we all stood around the kitchen island tasting them. I stood there critiquing. "More time in the oven? Do they need more mint flavor? More flour?" And both of their responses were "these are good."
I wish I was a guy sometimes. But they are right, these are good. Super rich and fudgy, not an overbearing mint flavor and topped with chocolate which makes everything better.
These involve my regular brownie recipe, plus a mint frosting layer and chocolate layer. They also need to be chilled between layers, so they take a little more time than a regular old brownie. It's worth it though.
