Mint Brownies To Die For

A moist fudgy brownie, a layer of creamy mint frosting, and a layer of melted chocolate make these Mint Brownies the best ever!

It isn’t often that I claim a recipe is the “best ever”, but these mint brownies really are the best. I have tried mint brownies in cafes, bakeries, and restaurants, and not one of them has ever measured up to this recipe. People tell me all the time that these are the best mint brownies they have ever tasted. They are phenomenal!

These Mint Brownies are the best ever! Not even brownies from specialty bakeries are better than these!

The brownie is fudgy, soft, and moist. The mint filling is smooth, creamy and decadent. Then you top them off with melted chocolate. Every bite is heavenly! They make perfect Christmas goodies, but they are so amazing that my kids beg me to make them all year long.
Recipe for the best mint brownies you will ever taste!
To say they are a huge hit is an understatement. They are inhaled wherever I take them! This recipe makes a large batch, so I usually take them to potlucks, parties, or church suppers. If you don’t have a similar function to take them to, you could cut the recipe in half and bake them in a 9×13″ pan. They don’t turn out quite as moist- not sure about the science of that- but they are still phenomenal.
Recipe for killer Mint Brownies. Seriously, people will beg for them! Your other option of course is to make the whole batch and share them with friends. They will bow down and kiss your feet adore you. Share them with strangers and they will become your new best friends. They are that good!

  1. When I do the chocolate topping, I melt on top the stove with a double boiler and the chocolate is more of a liquid.

    I made these today, as my first attempt at making one of my all time favorite treats, and this recipe did not disappoint. Although, delicious, mine did not turn out as beautiful as yours. When I spread the chocolate topping on the top it was thick and hot. As I tried to spread and smooth out the chocolate topping, the mint frosting began to melt and started mixing in with my chocolate. Do you have any tips and tricks to avoid this? I’m wondering if I just didn’t melt the chocolate enough. Mine was thick like frosting, but smooth. If I melt it more, will it turn more into a liquid glaze?

    • If the chocolate mixture was really hot, it could be that you actually cooked it too long. It might help to melt the butter and just let the chips sit in the hot butter for 3-5 minutes, stirring, then cooking for 30 seconds at a time after that. Some brands of chocolate melt better than others, so sometimes I’ve also had mine swirl with the mint frosting. No worries, it still tastes just as good!
