Andes Mint Chocolate Brownies


Mint frosted brownies topped with melted chocolate and Andes Crème de Menthe mint candies

Andes (creme de menthe) Mint Chocolate Brownies | urbanbakes.com I know, I know.  I’ve posted way too much chocolate here on URBAN BAKES.  I promise you, by next week I’ll have something completely different.  I wanted to post these just in time for St. Patrick’s Day.  You can’t deny it, the color and mint flavor fits perfectly for the holiday.  Well, to tell you the truth, I made these before Valentine’s Day and had a cute catchy title for them.  For whatever reason, I never got around to posting it so now’s the time to do it. In light of yesterday’s Edible Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Sandwich post (since I usually publish 2 to 3 times a week), I’ll make this one short and sweet because tomorrow I have another one.  A BIG ONE so keep your eyes peeled for that.  You’re gonna love it!

Andes (creme de menthe) Mint Chocolate Brownies | urbanbakes.com These brownies were of my own classic brownie recipe which means… super fudgy, just the way I like it.  I topped them with a crème de menthe-flavored buttercream and melted chocolate which gave the brownies a beautiful sheen finish.  While still wet, I embellished the top with triangular-chopped Andes mints to give it added height and a more intense pop of mint flavor. This recipe was surprisingly easy to do and a lot of fun.  I would highly recommend everyone to try this recipe at least once to see for yourself how quick and easy it is to do.

  1. Fudgy brownies for the win! These look amazing, Connie. That gorgeous green colour of the frosting, that beautiful shiny layer of chocolate and yum, the chopped Andes mints. This is my idea of heaven. And never ever apologize for posting chocolate recipes. There’s no such thing as too many chocolate recipes! Keep ’em coming, I say ;)
