Easy mint brownies recipe that's made from scratch. It's rich and fudgy and topped off with creamy mint frosting. Truly the best mint chocolate dessert.
In a microwave-safe bowl, add butter, chocolate chips and heat in 30 second increments, while mixing in between, until everything has fully melted into a smooth mixture.
Note: The mixture should not be boiling hot. If it is, let it cool down a bit and then proceed to the next step.
Add granulated sugar, brown sugar, eggs, mint extract and mix until smooth.
Add flour, cocoa powder and mix until just combined. Don't over-mix!
Pour brownie batter in a rectangle cake pan (Dimensions: 9x13) that's been lined with foil paper and sprayed with oil.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes or until an inserted toothpick in the center comes out with some sticky crumbs.
Allow the brownies to cool down completely while you prepare the frosting...
In a mixing bowl, add butter and mix until smooth.
Add powdered sugar (1/2 cup at a time) while continuing to mix until the desired spreadable consistency is achieved.
Add mint extract and green coloring and mix until combined.
Spread frosting on the cooled brownies and chill for at least 1 hour before cutting slices.
Drizzle each slice with melted chocolate and enjoy!
