Remember the St. Patrick’s Day brownies that I shared? Well, I finally got around to making them again minus the green food coloring. These mint brownies are a must try (and they don’t look like moss like I was told the others do). This is one of those recipes that once you make it, it’ll be in your regular rotation.

These brownies are moist and chewy on the inside and contain the perfect amount of mint and chocolate. I’ve made them so many times over the past month that I think we can officially call these my family’s favorite brownies. We find that they are best warm. So you can warm them up in the microwave for 20-30 seconds and serve them with a tall glass of cold milk. They are so delicious!

Before I share the recipe, let me answer some questions that may come up.

Where do I find mint fudge baking chips?

You can find the mint fudge baking chips that I used at Walmart. If you are unable to find those, they sell a number of other brands. You can also use Andes mints and chop them up.

What is the easiest way to melt butter?

I put a stick of unsalted butter in a microwave safe bowl and microwave in 20 second increments. When the butter is almost completely melted, remove the bowl from the microwave and stir until it’s fully melted. I do this first so that by the time I get all of the other ingredients together, it will be cooled down enough.

Can I add extra chocolate chips?

I’ve tried to double the amount and it was a disaster. The brownies became very oily and the batter was drowned out by the chips. I don’t recommend adding anymore than is in the recipe for these reasons. 1/2 a cup of each seems to be the perfect amount.

What is the easiest way to cut these mint brownies?

While you can use just a regular knife, I use a large pastry dough cutter.  The large size is the perfect size to cut your brownies in one shot and it easily sliced through. I use it all the time for both brownies and fudge. If you make bread, it can also be used for dough.

What I love most about these mint brownies is that you don’t need any fancy equipment. The recipe is so easy to make that it’s a fun recipe to work on with your kids. They remind me of Girl Scout thin mint cookies. Speaking of, I would love to crush some up and add them next time we make them. I’ll let you know how that turns out.
