We are serious mint chocolate chip lovers in this house. So much so, that many years ago I made this crazy Mint Chocolate Chip Cake for my son’s birthday! It was dreamy, and decadent, and has been made several times since then!

But I don’t stop with just brownies when it comes to mint chocolate chip! I love it with cupcakes, cookies, and fudge too!

Today though, we are all about the brownies. Since St.Patrick’s Day is just around the corner, I found it only fitting that I create a green dessert for your enjoyment!

The base of today’s brownie is my favorite recipe of all time. It’s based off these Buttermilk Brownies! Once you give this recipe a try, I guarantee you won’t need another brownie recipe, ever.

Rich and thick, these fudgy brownies are topped with a sweet mint chocolate chip buttercream frosting! Behold, the Mint Chocolate Chip Brownies recipe of your dreams!

Ingredients

For the Brownies:

  • ½ cup unsalted butter
  • ¼ cup dark chocolate unsweetened cocoa powder (I love Rodelle)
  • ½ cup canola oil
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • ¼ cup buttermilk
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp kosher salt
  • 1 cup Andes Creme de Menthe baking chips

For the Frosting:

  • ½ cup unsalted butter, softened
  • ½ cup milk
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • ½ tsp peppermint extract
  • 1 drop green food coloring (I use this)
  • ¾ cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degree F. Line a 13x9 baking dish with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. For the brownies, in a small saucepan over medium high heat, combine butter, cocoa powder and oil. Bring to a boil, whisking continuously, and remove from heat.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, combine the granulated sugar, eggs, and buttermilk. Slowly add in the butter mixture (do not over mix). Add in flour, baking soda, and salt, stirring just until combined. Fold in Andes mints.
  4. Pour into prepared dish and bake for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and cool.
  5. Once cooled, prepare the frosting. In a large mixing bowl, using an electric mixer, beat butter for 3-4 minutes. Do this until the butter becomes pale in color. Add in milk, sugar, peppermint and food coloring. Beat an additional 3-5 minutes until frosting is light and fluffy (add more milk if needed). Fold in chocolate chips.
  6. Spread over cooled brownies. Refrigerate for two hours, until set. Cut and enjoy.

Notes

**Use peppermint extract NOT mint extract. I find the mint has a toothpaste flavor to it!

  1. I put them in the refrigerator they got hard is the supposed to happen, will they get soft when I take them out of the refrigerator?

  2. I put mine in the refrigerator they got hard is that normal, when I take them out will they soften up?

  3. Hi, Aimee, and Happy Holidays to you and your family. ? I was just wondering about storage for these after they’re all set and done. Do they need to stay in the refrigerator or are they good at room temperature? I’m considering making these gooey beauties for my husband’s potluck and just wondered how far in advance to make them and the proper storage. Thank you so much and thank you for sharing your delicious recipes and personal stories with us. You have a beautiful blog.

  4. I love mint and chocolate together, and these brownies did NOT disappoint! I loved them so much that I’m going to make them again for St. Patrick’s Day!

  5. Yummy. I made these for a dinner party and they were a huge hit. I skipped the chocolate glaze since I don’t own a pastry bag. They still turned out amazing.

  6. Thanks for putting up this recipe. I love the combo of chocolate and mint. The brownies came out beautifully, with a nice shiny top, but when I made the frosting, it was like soup. I have been baking a long time, and I usually just make frosting by feel, but I thought I’d follow your recipe. I ended up having to add around 7 cups of icing sugar instead of 4. Any idea what happened?
    Also, what do you think would happen if I used all butter instead of half butter, half oil? I found the brownies to be a little oily on the bottom, and my usual go-to brownie recipe calls for all butter. Just wondering if you’ve tried it. The taste is fantastic, as is the texture, but like I said, mine came out somewhat oily.

  7. Could you make this Cherry flavored.  And what could you use.  Grenadine or Maraschino cherry juice.  What do you think?

  8. I LOVE the combination between mint and chocolate. Thanks for the recipe. The brownies are looking great, I’m going to try them for sure!

  9. Magical Aimee! I love mint chocolate too, or chocolate anything really! Love how fluffy your beautiful frosting looks. Pinned! 

  10. These look wonderful. I love mint choice. chip. I have not been happy with the homemade brownies I have made. I need to try these.

  11. I feel like these were meant for me!  I love the mint and chocolate combination and these look so darn good!

  12. These are so dang purty, Aimee! Seriously, that pillowy layer of mint frosting on top is just so incredible. I want to take a nap on it and then eat it all!
    Once you find the best brownie recipe, no mixes ever needed again! It’s the best!
