Dark Chocolate Mint Brownies.

They look pretty good. Well, at this angle, they do.

IMG_7263

Made with bittersweet chocolate.

About 10 ounces.

IMG_7252

And a whole bag of these mint chips.

IMG_7246

Okay, I might have over done it with the mint. They were mighty minty.

IMG_7271

I originally threw together a few ingredients with cookies in mind, but as I mixed it together, the batter didn’t seem quite thick enough. So, I quickly grabbed a small square baking pan and poured the batter into that instead to try and salvage into brownies.

IMG_7274

But, because I was curious, I scooped some of the batter back out and baked it on a pan in the oven right along side the brownies.

IMG_7286

Hmmmm. I was right. Flat cookies. Flat. Flat. Flat. Dagnabbit.

But the brownies still had hope even though it seemed like they baked forever.

So when I finally pulled them out of the oven, I couldn’t wait until they cooled to dig in.

The green dotted top was just too mesmerizing.

IMG_7300

So, I quickly cut a piece … or, maybe four… for myself. Yummorama.

See the melted chocolate. I stirred the remaining chocolate chips from the bag into the batter with the mint chips and they melted beautifully. But the mint ones didn’t…

IMG_7298

… making the brownies difficult to cut and still look pretty.

IMG_7302

That’s okay. My tummy didn’t mind.

Here’s the rundown if you want to make and improve on them. Maybe you’ll have a little better luck.

Dark Chocolate Mint Chip Brownies

10 ounces bittersweet chocolate chips (reserve remaining chips from bag to stir into batter)
1/3 cup butter
1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 salt
1 cup sugar
3 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
12 ounces mint chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Melt 10 oz. chocolate and butter in a small bowl in the microwave on medium. Melt for 1 minute and stir. Repeat until melted and smooth. Set aside to cool.

In a medium bowl, combine flour, soda and salt. Stir together with a wire whisk and set aside.

In your mixer, beat sugar, eggs and vanilla.

Add chocolate mixture to sugar. Then add flour mixture. Mix until combined.

Stir in mint chips and remaining chocolate chips.

Pour into a greased and floured 8X8 inch pan and bake forever. I mean about 35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out almost clean.

Note: If I did these again, I would bake in a bigger pan so they wouldn’t be so thick. The brownies fell slightly as the cooled and I might even go mintless.

Enjoy! Maybe.

  1. Do you think mint would also work with white chocolate?

  2. My mouth is watering…

  3. I Heart Mint!

  4. Mint chip brownies 5 stars!

  5. i love mint chip ice cream, so im pretty sure i would love these so much. but nobody else in my family would so can u give me a recipe thats reduced

  6. is it possible to make brownies with margarine? we just found out that my brother is lactose intolerant so lately I have been using lactose free milk and margarine in my baking.

  7. Yummy!

  8. I’m doing concessions for my daughter’s school rendition of Grease, and was looking for something that epitomizes (in a yummy, desserty sense) “Danny”. Dark hair, a little dangerous, and Oh So Cool. I do believe I found his item. Thanks! :)

  9. Gotta show this to my sister! She’d love this!

  10. I make mint brownies with Andes chocolate baking chips. I mix half the chips in the mix and sprinkle the other half over the top 2/3 through baking. Ooey gooey minty chocolatey brownie goodness.

  11. We just made these and we couldn’t find mint chips in the UK so we used broken-up mint aero bars instead- this was very yummy and even more chocolatey as the bars have chocolate as well. Not quite as pretty as the mint chips but this made a very good substitute :)

  12. Just finished baking these. I used semi-sweet chocolate chips instead of “bitter-sweet”. They are very delicious!!!

  13. I have to say mine turned out more cakey then brownie but were still really yum. I’ll be using this recipe again. Maybe with a little more chocolate next time.

  14. they look good enough for me, im going to try and make these tonight!! yummm, my mouth is watering just thinking about it ;)

  15. Where do you get “mint chips” from? I’ve never seen them!

  16. I am just putting a batch in the oven right now, I changed the dark choclate for milk chocolate and the peppermint drops for chopped up cherry ripe. Fingers crossed they come out looking as good.

  17. I love mint, in Australia we don’t have these either!!! What else are we bloody missing out on!!! Think I need to stop looking at American Blogs cause it’s making me sad… :(

  18. Try the cookie recipe as printed on the mint chip bag (“Polka Dot Cookies”)…it’s easy and so good…don’t overbake the cookies, just let them sit on the pans for a few minutes after they come out of the oven to set…THEN FREEZE THE COOKIES after they are cooled…SOOOOOOOOO FREAKIN GOOD!!!

  19. Yum they look really good – ive got all the ingredents in my cupbourd except the green choc chips ;]

  20. Yum!!! these look soo good! where do you buy the mint chips? i have never seen them in the stores!?

  21. They look soo yummy!
    Now I just need to try & find mint chips in the UK so that I can make some :)

  22. I love mint!

  23. If you don’t like the Guittard Green Mint Chips try using Andes chips (i found them in the baking isle in walmart). chocolate and mint in one! :0

  24. To top these off, they need a big honkin scoop of mint chocolate chip ice cream! YUM. These look very scrumptious, will have to try, except I will omit some of the mint ones, and probably use something else to help keep them fudgy too!

  25. Hey! I make the dark chocolate with the Andes MInt pieces. They melt. I don’t do too many for a more subtle taste, but they melt really well and the brownies are Delish! I just bought some Caramel chips and we are trying them today! They look like little B B’s!! :)~

  26. I usually LOVE choc mint stuff. So, naturally I put those mint Ghiradelli chips in a batch of brownies. It was just too much, it tasted like toothpaste to me.

    Strange but true,

  27. Might work to just substitute a little peppermint extract for the mint chips. Mmm… craving rich chocolate, now!

  28. i keep looking at these.. how many week have i been..? i’m dying! i neeeed to make them! haha

  29. My husband is a big mint chocolate chip fan so I made these brownies for him for easter (added a few white chocolate chips which are my favorite) and they were a complete success!! Thanks for the recipe.

  30. for those who can’t find mint chips..me included here in Austria..try using after eight mint chocolate:) granted it won’t give you the green color but the taste is what is important:)

  31. HI! I havent bopped by your site for quite some time so not sure you remember me (supergroveraway on flickr). I am so amazed and psyched for you and your upcoming book!! I cant wait!! Page looks beautiful too!! Saw this brownie link on a friend’s page and had to peek. Looks so good. Ive made chocolate cookies with these new andies candies chips I found recently! Youd love em!! Hope you have a wonderful easter!!!

  32. I have those Guittard Green Mint Chips and was wondering how they work out in recipes. I think the ingredient list is a bit scary, except for the sugar…partially hydrogenated palm kernel oil, whey, nonfat milk, mono and diglyceride and soya lecithin emulsifiers, natural and artificial flavor, artificial colors…

  33. they look so good…i love the combination of the colors :)

  34. Now I need to find some mint chips at the market! :-)

  35. Hi :-D Glad you are out of the hospital!!! Isin’t it weird how extrodinarly wiped out you get from being in there for a couple of days? It’s like your whole body, from your brain to your toes, have just been zapped and depleted of every single ounce of gumption.
    I chuckled when I read the part about guessing the number of nuts on the one type of doughnut. I attended a baby shower the other evening where one of the games was guess how many jelly beans were in the bottle. I was only three off!! :-) So I used the same guesstamation method, and am submitting an answer of 240.
    I had an idea for you seeings how you were unable to do an Easter type of posting. You ought to hook up a Mr. Linky type of thing and have everybody link up an Easter goodie they’ve made – with a twist. They also need to send you a sample of it ;-p

  36. why is it when I use green chips it looks like my food spent too many days on the counter but when you do it it looks like art?!?

  37. I made these again today but used walnuts instead of mint chips. O, yummy! It really helped the cook time too. Booonuuuss!

  38. Bakerella – I’m missing your updates – is everything okay? I LOVE your blog!!

  39. bakerella!!! where are you? is everything okay?

  49. Yummy!

    Looks good! ?

  50. Love your site! What an inspiration!! I will be visiting often. Those brownies look like they smell amazing….. Chocolate and mint — what’s not to love?

  51. OMG! my tummy wouldnt mind that those minty chips didnt melt that well :)

  52. I agree with Samantha above…. where is the latest yummy from Bakerella?? Hope you are doing well and maybe there is something super excitng going on away from the computer! :)

  53. oh my this looks great! though i’m not a fan of mint on any of my dessert (i feel like i’m brushing my teeth while eating something sweet, hahaha) but your green mint chips is very mesmerizing inside those gooey chocolate goodness =)

  54. I LOVE your blog!! I just came across it a few days ago and I’ve already stopped by a few times! Everything you make is so beautiful! I wish I had your amazing talent! I enjoy seeing things you have created! Keep it up, please!! :D

  55. Omigosh…it’s Tuesday and I need my weekly bakerella fix!! Are you ok??? I hope everything is ok. Please blog sooooon!

  56. I totally love your blog! and i’m so trying this recipe! : )

  57. I LOVE YOUR BLOG!! I do have a question though. I’ve been follwing your blog for a while, and I totally dig the effort you put into photographing, and detailing these wonderful recipes for the masses, however, here’s my question…
    Does it ever bug you when people post changes/corrections to the recipes you post! I’ve wondered this for a while. If you don’t want to answer publicly, email me, because I’m am so curious. Thanks again for your creative ideas and attention to detail.

  58. hey bakerella. you should still have one book (martha stewart’s cookies) that you wanted to give away. Haha just a reminder ;)

  59. Have you ever tried Cook’s Ilustrated brownies? They are just like out of a box but better! YUMM

  60. I made these a couple nights ago, and I took your suggestion on using a bigger pan. Unfortunately the only size I had was a 9 inch pie plate….pretty disastrous. I had to peel the top layer of brownie off after 30 mins of baking because the actual brownie wasn’t cooking. Once I did that they finished baking, but not before I’d charred them just a little. They still tasted great though, maybe a little crunchy…but very yummy :)

  61. MY 10 YEAR OLD DAUGHTER LOVES, I MEAN LOVES MINT CHOCOLATE, THESE WILL REALLY MAKE HER SMILE THANK YOU FOR THIS.

  62. Oh! I love the chocolate and mint combination. So sad that we dont have mint chips here in Finland :(

  63. these look great! I love chocolate and mint together! Inspires me to make some myself. Thanks ;)

  64. Have you every used a “Little Dipper” mini-crock pot for melting chocolate or candy melts? Did it work or not?

  65. Amazing brownies. I have yet to try mint chips.

  66. I saw these and was like “Oh my gosh I MUST make these!” I love chocolate and mint and so I tried making my grandma’s brownie recipe and adding the mint chips and they are SO good! Thanks a lot for the festive idea!

  67. There is nothing better than chocolate & mint. YUMMY!

  68. OMG! I just made these but used Ande’s Mint Chip instead and wow!! Honey, you sure know how to make a girl want to bake! I kept “checkin” to see if they were done just so I could like the toothpicks! lol.

  69. OMG, those look so good I just can’t wait to try them. I think I might cut the mint in half, though… I’m just sayin’…

  70. Hey I made the rainbow cupcakes for st. Patrick’s day
    and I definitely wanna look at the bakerella-style! you should try doing them :) I bet they are going to come out great and cute like always!

  71. I actually really like the flat cookies! They look chewy and yummy.

  72. Those look sinful! I have to comment that I’ve made cake balls and brownie balls, and they are a hit! Christmas was the biggest use of and for them!

  73. Man! You are just too good. I could have never thought of that.

  74. They look divine, but it’s so totally not fair, we can’t get half the ingredients over here in Oz :( Off to look for a substitute – thinking Peppermint Crisp.

  75. Wow! Those look amazing! My lovin’ man would love these…I’ll have to give them a try!

  76. You are amazing & brilliant.

  77. Try cutting your brownies, while warm, with a knife heated and wet with hot water. Draw the knife through the brownie slowly. Brownies are always hard to cut nicely, in my opinion, and this method usually works when we’re doing large sheet pans at church. If the start to drag more batter, carefully pull the knife out, reheat/wet the blade and continue. You could also try spraying the warm knife with cooking spray.

  78. i love this new spin on a classic brownie recipe!

  79. Happy St. Patrick’s Day! These look delicious!

  80. Those look great! Putting them on my to bake list!

  81. I am going downstairs for a Thin Mint now ….

  82. LOVE IT!!! You did the opposite of me- I did brownies that were green with milk chocolate chips!! Too funny.

  83. These looks SO DELISH! Mint and Chocolate are my fav combo flavors!

  84. Chocolate and mint! It’s even better with chocolate chips and busted up Andes mints. Heaven!

    Don’t forget a big glass of ice-cold milk…

  85. Instead of using the green mint chips, you could use York Peppermint Patties, chopped or whole, in the batter. They don’t really melt, but they are delicious.

  86. Oh goodness. These would look lovely on my hips.

  87. I had never heard of green mint chips before but I can’t wait to look for them! These would be fun for spring, too, not just St. Pattys!

  88. Loved your colorful brownies. For years I have been placing chopped Andes Mints on top of my brownies and letting them melt. These are far more pretty. I like these much more, and when it comes time for me to make my mint brownies, I am going to give this recipe a try!

  89. This sounds like a yummy idea! And they look very festive for St. Patrick’s Day! I wonder how those chips would be melted & used in frosting on cookies like the ones I did today? Hmmmm……another inspiring idea from you, Bakerella! I think I’ll be buying some minty chips today! :)

  90. I would end up having to eat them myself since my 4 boys don’t enjoy mint. They sure look yummy!

  91. You should try the Andes Mint pieces if you can find them in the grocery. They make delicious mint brownies. Or if you can’t find them, just chop up some regular Andes Mints. I even made an Andes Mint buttercream frosting once that was a hit! :)

  92. And bakerella,

    I understand that you’re going for selective blur (or DOF) so that it looks like we’re right on top of those mint chips.

    I still love your photographs and how they manage to be creative yet still clearly show the subject. Good work as always!

  93. Alecia,

    Growing up, my first birthday cakes were carrot cakes. It’s still a sweet baked good, but they tried to make it as healthy as possible, and I loved them.

    And what’s the harm with flat cookies? My favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe is Alton’s “Thin and Crispy.” Maybe bakerella is the person he designed the “Chewy” for, or the “Puffy.”

  94. They look plenty yummy enough to me! :)

  95. I absolutely love the green mint chips! I’ve never seen them before!!

  96. I had a similar problem with some butterscotch chips I found in the store here once. They were SO NOT for melting … but hey that’s the only way you are going to find out and usually the results are edible :P

  97. Hmmm, I wonder if you melted the chips and then swirled that through the batter, if you’d have better luck? And p.s. I love the design treatment you give your photos. It’s so on trend with what’s hot in graphic design, especially for food and home web/print.

  98. Hi Bakerella! I swear Im always trying what you make. Well I made the mint brownies tonight and I used a different type of mint. I used the andies mint chips and they melted beautifully! I did not however use as much mint as the recipe called for because i took into consideration what you said about maybe not using mint next time. They tasted good but smelled amazing! I would make it again. keep the ideas coming. I am going to school to be a pastry chef thanks to you and your creativity I think I’ve finally found my place here in this world! I LOVE TO BAKE!

  99. Oooh! I’m a huge fan of experi-mint-ing!! But I can never find those darn mint chips anywhere. Next time I see them, I NEED to stock up!

  100. Bakerella!

    I LOVE your site! I visit almost everyday and am always so inspired! My son just had his 1st birthday party and I made cake pops – they were a hit!!!! Check it out if you have time:

    http://amyduree.blogspot.com/2010/03/davids-1st-birthday-parties.html

  101. thanks for doing all the experimenting so that we can enter the kitchen with all of your wisdom!

  102. I tried these mint chips at Christmas. They just don’t melt! I was really disappointed. They look great, but you have to want a crunchy brownie.

  103. These look totally gourmet !!!!! I wish I could reach through and have a square.

  104. It’s fun to experiment, but somethings, things fall flat, and that has happened to me.. esp when I try and wing a recipe.

  105. Thank you for sharing! It’s good to know that we are not alone when things don’t turn out exactly as we had hoped.

  106. my sister tried many times with those mint chips and no matter what her cookies came out thin. She’s since banned those chips from her house.

    i’m curious now.

  107. Could you increase the mint flavor by substituting one of the teaspoons of vanilla for 1 tsp of PURE mint extract (like the essential oil of the plant?)

  108. they’re still gorgeous!!!! i’m not the biggest fan of mint, but if i saw these in a store i would still totally buy them :) GORGEOUS color!

  109. Whether these brownies are tasty or not, they sure look pretty! What a great festive idea…I wonder what would happen if you used Easter mini-eggs instead of the mint chips…? This might be even messier, but hey it could be really cute for Easter. Thanks for the inspiration Bakerella!

  110. Where can I find the mint chips? I have to order by mail since we are stationed overseas. Thanks :)

  111. These look AMAZING! A perfect treat for after dinner. I think the messiness of them makes them look more delicious! Ill have to try them! Where did you find the mint chocolate chips?

  112. I’ve never seen mint chips like that. Usually I buy the mint chips that are Nestle (or Hersheys) that are mint and chocolate. They have a much better melt factor.

    Of course, you might be able to use candy melts and peppermint extract to make your own melt-y mint chips. That could be pretty good!

  113. @ Alicia (#78) I was thinking the same thing. Bakerella’s photos are usually spot on. It seems that she’s going too wide with the aperture and getting too close. To do that, you really need a macro lens….

  114. Those green chips look gross….

  115. I’ve used the Guittard Mint Chips before (bought several bags at World Market– they were on clearance) and can’t say I’ve had much luck with them. As you mentioned, they don’t melt, and to me they have a bit of an odd flavor and grainy texture. I’m a HUGE mint chocolate fan, and usually like Guittard Chocolate for baking, but the mint chips fell way short of my expectations.

  116. Why so many blurry pictures?? Esp. 7271… I used to think your pictures were so good.

  117. They look really good!

  118. I love mint with my chocolate…i usually use mint flavored cocoa discs, or I have mint chocolate chips (like mini jr. mints)…I love that yours were green…very festive!

    Im having a fun give away…Id love for you to win, because I know you would do such fun stuff with it! thechocolateladyblog.blogspot

  119. yum i love mint anything!

  120. OMG those look so fudgey and delish!!! ? I haven’t seen those minty green chips before, but I’ll be looking for them.

  121. Dark chocolate and mint make life worth living. These look positively faboo!

  122. Yikes..you’ve done it again…you can never ever go wrong with anything chocolate and chocolate and mint are a winning combination!

  123. This is a question about cake balls: I have made them several times now and they are fun and delicious–but how do I avoid getting cake crumbs in my chocolate (white chocolate is the worst culprit). I think it happens when I push the ball off of the spoon I’m using to dip into the chocolate.

  124. taste is more important than appearance and these look mighty delicious. thanks for the recipe!

  125. no thanks…ecky

  126. Wow… They sound really yummie… Have to try something like that sometime. When I have time.

  127. They look pretty to me, but sorry for your troubles. I had another minty idea in mind for tomorrow, but after seeing this post I might have to stop by the store on my way home.

  128. This is how I make mint brownies! :) They look yummy! Exactly what I was thinking for St. Patty’s day!

    They taste SUPER Yummy with Mint Choc. Chip Ice cream!

  129. Is it a bad thing that it is only 8 am and I’m already craving chocolate. These brownies look amazing! Try cutting your brownies next time with a plastic knife (one of those cheap ones you get for birthday parties and just throw away). Seriously cuts brownies perfectly, you won’t believe it until you try it.

  130. I love love love your blog! I find myself getting on here almost everyday to check out what you are making. Love mint and chocolate together…I mean who doesn’t? Can’t wait to try them. And for the record, I love how your pictures look! :0)

  131. Love mint and chocolate combination!! It is so frustrating to see those lovely mint chips and have no place to buy them!! :( I guess I’ll try with mint extract…Thanks bakerella you’re so inspiring! And remember, if at first you don’t succeed, try, try again!

  132. Oh Bakerella…I love you, I love your blog…but your pictures…as CUTE as they are, they make me dizzy! The blurred effect is fun and definitely works, but too much blur makes it hard to see what you want us to see. I know this is your blog, with your pictures and you can and should do what you want, so hey, if you like your pictures, keep doin’ what you’re doin’…more power to you! But, from just a suggestion from one loyal reader…increase your aperture! OK, going into hiding now so your readers many followers don’t yell at me for suggesting this :)

  133. it’s a week for experi-mint-ing! I tried out mint chocoalte chip cookies using mint extract instead of mint chips: http://bakedwithloveandbutter.blogspot.com/2010/03/mint-chocolate-chip-cookies.html

    they came out flat too… must be the mint! oh well, they taste pretty darn good!

  134. Yum! I love mint and these are so cute for St. Patty’s Day!

  135. They look yummy! The foods that sloppy always taste the best!

  136. I experi-minted this week, too. I made a batch of brownies two days ago. I used mini-chocolate chips in the batter and made a mint buttercream frosting to go on top with a chocolate glaze over the mint frosting. They are really good and they look so pretty with the mint layer.

    Can’t wait to see what you make next! :)

  137. They look tasty and “rustic” and tasty! :) Happy St Patty’s day Bakerella!

  138. That looks so good! :D

    x

  139. ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh yum another awesome recipe……and i love choc mint !!!!!!!!

    yum yum yum yum yum

  140. I’m not normally a fan of mint, but something about those brownies just calls to me!

  141. how yummy! I made some cookies like that at Christmas, but with more of a chocolate chip batter and they were good, but I bet the double chocolate would be even better!
    Fancy-shmancy mint chocolate too! Awesome job!

  142. hmmmmm….yum! I would definitely eat these. I love chocolates and mint together, though my family doesn’t. what can I saw I’m unique :D

  143. Wow, amazing ! I love it. In France, we don’t have mint chips and when I see that, I’m sad…
    I WANT MINT CHIPS !

  144. I have never seen mint chip like those. I want to climb inside that minty brown mix!

    come see me at secretwifelife.blogspot.com

  145. Alecia@ Hoobing Family Adventures, For both my kids I made a 5 or 6 inch cake just for them and then made another cake for the party guests (they matched). I did a white cake and made my usually decorator frosting. Both my kids actually took a nap almost right afterward since it was their nap time…all the toys as gifts were more overwhelming to them than the sugar.

    Good luck!

    And Bakerella – another yummy recipe to go on my hard drive :)

  146. Happy St.Patricks Day Bakerella, I wonder if you can make irish soda pops. LOL. Brownies look yummy. Luck of the Irish to you. Paulette

  147. Love them. They look so fudgy and I love the green/brown contrast!

  148. i don’t like minty flavors, but the brownies look delish.. ^^

  149. These are adorable; so festive!

    About a year ago, I made chocolate mint brownies using miniature Peppermint Patties. Obviously no green, but boy were they choco-minty! Now if only I could find that recipe…

  150. Seriously delish!! *drooling on my keyboard* :P

    I love how you can get all these different cooking ingredients in the States, there are no stores here that carry such products so I really enjoy seeing what you use next. Intead of a girly weekend in NY I’d be hunting down baking supplies, lol!!

  151. Mmmmmmmmmmmm…………Yum Yum Yum!

  152. Oh!! How I LOVE mint!! However, we cannot get novelty items like mint chips here in France!! UGGHHHH!!!! I have to take a trip back to the States for all of my baking needs!!!!

  153. Hey, who cares what they look like? Those mint chips are fantastic – they really brighten up the brownies. Not that brownies need brightening up AT. ALL. EVER. But it’s lovely to try something different and see how it works out!

  154. love it…love it…love it…love it…love it…love it…love it…love it…

    i always wonder!!! who gets 2 eat all the yummy stuff u make???

  155. That looks absolutely wonderful. How I wish there were mint-chips in my part of the world!

  156. Those look really good! Mint and chocolate is a great combo!

  157. I highly, highly recommend the Polka Dot Cookies recipe on the back of that bag of Guittard Green Mint Chips. Do follow the recipe and slightly underbake the cookies (the instructions say “cookies will be soft in centers but will harden as they cool”) and you’ll get excellent, dense, chewy, refreshing mint chocolate cookies!

    The store at which I originally purchased the mint chips stopped carrying them, and in my desperation to recreate the cookie I discovered that Andes mints don’t work as well but mint semisweet chocolate drops from the local chocolate shop do – even if you don’t get that fun green color!

  158. YUMMY! Sadly we don’t get mint chips in New Zealand, otherwise I would so be making those tomorrow!

  159. I used those same green chips as my “white chocolate layer” when I tried to make peppermint bark this past December. You are right, it is WAYYYY minty. More then I expected. Also, even after melted, it cooled and hardened FAST. Like way to fast so my top layer was all bumpy and barely had time to get the candycane bits on top. But it was still yum and your brownies look yum too!

  160. Wow -there’s nothing better than chocolate and mint. Yum :)

  161. That looks divine! My recipe collection is growing rapidly thanks to your awesome recipes! :)

  162. Mmmm. I think I will stick to the Andes Mints… speaking of which… I have some on hand… and it’s nearly St. Paddy’s… hmmm… I think you may have started something in my kitchen.

  163. Yum these look delicious – I love anything and everything to do with mint. I wish we had mint chips in Australia!!

  164. Mmm, yummy! When I went on a SUPER COOKIE SPREE on Christmas, I made some chocolate mint chip cookies too! But I didn’t like the recipe on the back of the mint chips, so I used the one from the Reese’s peanut butter chips, but substituted the mint chips in for the peanut butter. Mmmm… :]

    Those brownies look mighty tasty though!

  165. wow you get Mint choc chips in the USA!!! Nothing like that here in Australia. : ( They look yum.

  166. Oh those look soooo yummy Bakerella!!! I wish you could send those in the mail…

  167. chocolate mint brownies! Oh,this is wonderful

  168. those flat cookies still look tasty, but the brownies look decadent – and seasonal to boot!!!

  169. Oh my… they look so yummy!

  170. Yummorama is RIGHT! I love mint! I will busy making green “red velvet cake tomorrow for st. patty’s day…see what you get me into! : D

  171. The brownies look great. Don’t worry about the cookies, that always happens to me :D.

  172. Uh…yum. Mint + chocolate is my favorite and I’m still looking for THE brownie recipe. Can’t wait to try this one! :D

  173. mmmmm… yummy! I will give that a try!

  174. You are fun! I don’t even like mint and chocolate mixed together (strange huh?), but the way you make it look, I almost think I would like it! I cannot wait until your book comes out…..it is going to FLY off the shelves!

  175. WOW! these look great! I’ll definetly give it a try. Keep up the good work Bakerella! =)

  176. bakerella,
    i just wrote a comment on the smiley face cake pops please reply

  177. I believe you learn more from your mistakes than from your successes. Mine from this week: Splenda works great in graham cracker crusts, but don’t bank on good cheesecake results without real sugar. Brownies look good. Want one with a glass of milk!

  178. I love mint and those cookies look delicious, as do the brownies.

  179. these are begging for a scoop of icecream! oh and if they are that minty i wonder if u can brush ur teeth with em.lol

  180. Are these brownies gooey or more cake-y? I’m looking for a brownie recipe that is more fudge-like and not so cake-y. These look delicious!!!!!!!!

  181. Um, yum. Those look so good. Mint is my favorite.

    I need a piece of random baking advice. What should I make for my daughter’s 1-year old birthday? She is new to most sugar and cake, frosting. Should I just go for the full on sugar coma or ease her into it somehow?? I cannot wait for the “first cake” picture but don’t know what I should serve.

    Thanks!

  182. You know what I love so much about your site Bakerella? (…I know, you’re sitting on the edge of your seat…) that you post recipes and creations that aren’t perfect. These brownies look like something I would make in my kitchen! They look delicious even if they aren’t perfect and beautiful.

  183. Love the chocolate and mint combination. Don’t you love the Guittard chips? The milk chocolate ones are to die for. I end up eating them straight out of the bag…

  184. you must be in a “green Mood”!! :) they look great!

  185. I love minty brownies…these look great!

  186. How funny!! I made mint brownies tonight for my blog tomorrow too!! These look delicious!!! :)

  187. Oh my, my sweet tooth is activated! Mint and chocolate is one of my most favorite combinations. These look divine!

  188. LOVE Chocolate Mint…and brownies? That’s icing on the cake..or brownie in this case;)

  189. You could use the “Perfect Brownie” pan!!! We have one and it is really cool. You put the grid slicer in, before you put it in the oven….beautifully cut brownies every time. And it easily maneuvers around chunks like mint chips!

  190. yum.. i love mint chocolate chips.

  191. These look and sound yummy. Mint and brownies all in one.

  192. yummy. those look delicious, even in the messy pictures. ;)
