Hershey’s Mint Brownies

March 21, 2010

for st. patrick’s day, i didn’t wake up on time to make the kids the annual green gravy over biscuits and cole reminded me as soon as i told him what day it was. so as a consolation i made these delicious brownies. years ago i cut this recipe out of a magazine but only recently tried them two years ago, and they are really good. so thought i would share it with anyone who loves mint and chocolate together.
p.s. don’t wait years before you try this recipe.

brownie ingredients and yes there is no baking soda or powder

dump all the ingredients in a bowl and beat

don’t forget to spray the pan with cooking spray and then it should look something like this

now make the mint creme by mixing 2 cups confectioners sugar, 1/2 cup soft butter,1/2 tsp. peppermint extract, and 1 T. water I used 2, beat until smooth

looks pretty

brownies are done

now spread that mint creme on top then refridgerate

melt 1 cup chocolate chips and 6 T. butter together, stir well and pour on top of brownies and put back in fridge.

    Ok, so I saw these on your other blog and couldn’t resist making them! But mine turned out more like cake, not brownies. It was still very good, but I was hoping for the ooey gooey goodness of a brownie, ya know? So what did I do wrong? Could it be the elevation? Did I beat it too long in the mixer?

    • They are kind of cakey not ooey gooey, think you did it right just were expecting a different result…sorry.
