Mint Brownies

I've been craving a chocolate mint combo, so figured brownies were a good place to start. This was actually my second choice of how to do this, but it won out due to laziness. Good thing it was a success....even though Henry thought they were cinnamon flavored. I think his taste buds were just confused.

Mint Brownies
2 eggs
1/2 + 1/8 c cocoa powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1 tbs vanilla extract
1 stick of butter
1 1/8 c sugar
3/4 c flour
1/4 c chocolate chips
1 c chopped Andes mints

  • Preheat oven to 350* and grease your brownie pan (8x8).
  • Beat the eggs, cocoa, salt, baking powder, and vanilla until smooth.
  • In a separate bowl microwave to melt the butter, add the sugar, and stir. Microwave a little longer until hot. It should become shiny as you stir. Heat once more (about 1 min) - this will create a shiny top crust on the brownies.
  • Add the hot butter/sugar mix to the chocolate concoction and stir until smooth.
  • Mix in the flour (in three parts), chocolate chips, and Andes mints.
  • Pour into your greased pan, and bake for 35-45 min.
