It’s been quite some time since I shared a brownie recipe on the blog. December was the last time. Nearly 3 months. Then, last week my blog friend Jocelyn shared some Thin Mint Fudge Brownies on her blog and I couldn’t get them out of my head. Seriously.

Earlier this week I made some Chocolate Mint Pretzel bites using the Duncan Hines frosting creations packet. I bought a few extra packets, just in case! I knew when making this brownie I would change a few things from Jocelyn’s recipe. I used my homemade brownie recipe as the base. I have nothing against brownie mixes, I just don’t usually have them on hand. It could totally work though for this recipe if you prefer. I also knew I wanted a soft chocolate mint layer. So instead of making a fudge layer, I made a chocolate mint ganache that you can sink your teeth into. Literally. Of course, to complete this recipe, it needed a final layer of milk chocolate. Agreed?

These are some seriously rich, seriously delicious brownies! Just be careful, it makes a whole 13×9 pan and once you start nibbling it’s so hard to stop! Consider yourself warned!

    1. I could not find the Frosting Creations at any of our local grocery stores. So I tried the mint extract and it worked just fine! I added slowly but in the end it was between 1/4 and 1/2 teaspoon. Hope that helps. I also used a regular brownie mix in the bottom and plan to use semi sweet mixed with dark for the top layer, similar to your your peanut butter Buckeye brownies, which I LOVE!!! That richer dark chocolate on top is just delicious! And using a brownie mix on the bottom was fast and easy.

  1. I would love to make these but I cannot find the Duncan Hines chocolate mint frosting creations. Any idea where to locate this  or what I can substitute with?

  2. The recipe looks great, however I really love the font you used for the ‘chocolate mint’ wording. Would you mind sharing what it is?

  3. I made these last night to bring into work today. My co-worker just cut into them and came rushing to my desk to make me take a bite. OMG–rich and delicious with just the right amount of mint flavor. I usually steer clear of recipes calling for sweetened condensed milk (I’m not sure why) but this recipe will change that!
