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
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • ¼ cup buttermilk
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon 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 teaspoon 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

  • Best served cold. Mint Chocolate Chip Brownies taste incredible straight out of the fridge
  • Keep covered. When you're not eating the brownies, keep them covered with plastic wrap or foil. Cut brownies can be stored in an airtight container.
  • Do not over mix. Only stir together the brownie batter ingredients until just combined. If you over mix, the brownies will be more tough and dense.
