It’s nearing St. Patrick’s Day and I’m thinking of all things deliciously Irish. Along with those cravings comes a distinct need for mint chocolate. Although, if I’m honest, I might have an obsession with it all year round.

These Mint Chocolate Brownies help fill that need. Well, along with Chocolate Chip Mint ice cream, a favorite as long as I can remember. In fact, my first memory of ice cream cones was of chocolate chip mint.

2 Ways to Make Mint Chocolate Brownies

I love these brownies any way I’ve made them. This recipe is scaled to make 24 mini bites or 16 squares in an 8 x 8 baking dish. The mini bites are made simply in a mini cupcake or muffin tin.

The simple batter begins with melted butter, to which you will whisk in the sugar and cocoa powder until glossy and smooth. Then add in the salt, baking powder, and vanilla, again, whisking to combine. The eggs come next. I’m still using a whisk here until the eggs are fully stirred in.

Finally, the dry ingredients will be added. This is the point where I swap my whisk for a spatula and add the flour and then fold in the chocolate and mint chips. Transfer the batter into the preferred baking vessel and bake for the prescribed time. Mini brownies will bake from 12 to 15 minutes and the 8 x 8 baking pan will take about 32 minutes. Cool completely before cutting into squares

Mint Chips

There are a variety of mint chips available both at your market and at Amazon. The brand I tend to reach for is Guittard

Scale

Ingredients

10 tablespoons butter, melted
11/4 cups sugar
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large eggs
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup mint chips

Instructions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray either a mini muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray or an 8 x 8 square baking pan. Set aside.

In a microwave-safe bowl, or on the stovetop, melt the butter. Add the sugar, stirring to combine. Remove from heat. Stir in the cocoa, salt, baking powder, and vanilla. Whisk in the eggs, stirring until smooth. Add the flour and chocolate and mint chips.

For the Mini Double Mint Chocolate Brownies:

Spoon the batter into the prepared baking tin. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Run a knife around the edges of the mini brownie to lift out of the pan and set on a cooling rack.

Using a spoon, scoop the brownie mixture into the mini cupcake tins and bake for 12-15 minutes. Run a knife along the edge of the mini brownie to lift it out of the pan and let cool on a cooling rack.

For the 8 x 8 Square Baking Pan:

Transfer the batter into the prepared square baking pan. Bake for 30 to 34 minutes or until a toothpick inserted 1-1/2 inches from the side comes out clean and the center is set. Let cool completely in the pan before transferring to a board to cut into 16 squares. It’s easy to visually cut perfect squares by marking sections in half and then in half again.
