Mint Brownies

My co-worker Angela introduced these to me and I just had to make them for the fourth of July. They are super delicious and if you love mint then you will love these.


Brownie mix (a mix that will fill a 9 by 13 pan). I used two bags from the Ghiradelli triple chocolate brownie mix from Costco. yumm.

Mint Layer
2 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup butter, melted
2 tablespoons milk
1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract
2 drops green food coloring

Chocolate Glaze:
3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
2 tablespoons butter


1. Prepare brownies as instructed on brownie mix box. Cool completely, maybe refrigerate for at least an hour.

2. To prepare mint layer, combine the powdered sugar and the melted butter in a medium bowl; stir together with a whisk or a mixer until well blended. Then add milk, peppermint, and food coloring and mix well until the mixture becomes smooth, green, and frosting-like in texture. Spread mint mixture over cooled brownies.

3. To prepare the glaze, combine the chocolate chips and the butter in a medium microwave safe bowl. Microwave on high in 30 second intervals, stirring after each 30 seconds until melted (about 1 minute total). Let stand for 2 minutes. Spread chocolate mixture over top of mint. Cover and refrigerate until 20 minutes before serving, so that cutting goes smoothly. ENJOY!

  1. Great one Liz! I skipped the chocolate layer on top, and just sprinkled Andes Mints bits on the mint layer.
