St Patrick’s is getting closer. As promised, here is the recipe for Chocolate Mint Brownies to help celebrate this green filled holiday. I adapted this recipe from one that I saw on My Baking Addiction. She adapted the recipe from The Joy of Baking. I kept the same brownie base, upped the mint layer, and topped it off with a chocolate ganache. The original recipe used a chocolate glaze.
The brownie layer is nice and dense, rich, chewy, gooey, fudgy goodness. Next, you have a nice good layer of minty frosting, but I may ramp up the mint next time to 1 tsp. Then you end with the ganache that’s rich, smooth, and chocolaty. As I have said before, I love ganache and can eat it by the spoonful. I mean you wouldn’t love chocolate and cream combined. Plus, this recipe for chocolate mint brownies only makes a 9 x 9 pan so you won’t be too tempted with leftovers.
