I really enjoy recipes that start with a mix! Completely from scratch is great, but there isn't always time. By adding crushed Starlite mints and chocolate chips, you can turn a brownie mix into something just a bit more special. The mints give it a great taste and the chocolate chips make your brownies so fudgy. This is super quick, easy, and tasty. Enjoy! :)
Total Time: About 10-15 minutes prep
Yield: 13x9 pan of brownies
Easy and delicious.
Mix brownies according to package (or your favorite homemade recipe). Fill cupcake tins about half full, add thin mint or peppermint, then fill to about 3/4 full. Bake according to instructions on box. When cool you can sprinkle with powdered sugar or frost and put sprinkles on.
We especially like these during the Christmas holiday, but they can be served year around. Delicious!

Make a cream cheese frosting, with 3 oz. cream cheese, 3 Tbsp. butter, and 2-3 cups sifted powdered sugar, blend to nice consistency. May add a few drops of milk or cream, if desired. Add green food coloring to desired tint, and add about 1/2 tsp. peppermint extract (it's strong).
Carefully spread over cooled brownies. Crush some candy canes (use a Ziploc bag and a rolling pin) and sprinkle on top. I made Christmas tree shapes, by cutting into lines on the short side, then cut diagonals.

These delicious mint brownies are easy to make and are the perfect treat for mint lovers.
In saucepan, melt chocolate and butter over low heat, stirring until smooth. Remove from heat. Cool completely. In large bowl, beat eggs, granulated sugar and brown sugar until thick and creamy. Stir in extracts and chocolate mixture. Add flour and salt, stirring until mixture is completely blended. Stir in walnuts and chopped candies. Spoon in to buttered miniature muffin tins two-thirds full. Bake 15 minutes at 350 degrees F or until brownies begin to pull away from sides of pans. Makes 4 dozen.

To fancy up your brownies, as soon as you take them out of the oven, place chocolate covered mints on top, close enough to melt together. You will have a great tasting brownie!

I am needing a recipe for mint brownies.

Mix margarine, sugar and eggs until smooth; add chocolate syrup, flour, baking powder, salt and vanilla. mix well and put in 9x13 inch greased jelly roll pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes; let cool. Beat second layer ingredients well and spread on cooled brownies. For third layer, melt chocolate chips and margarine. Let cool, then spread on top of mint layer. Cool 10 minutes, then cut.
Follow the package recipe. When removed from oven, lay the flat thin re tangle mints over the top. (can't remember the name!) Let them melt a bit and spread.
I've made both of the above recipes with great results. Another thing I do is, make a regular brownie recipe and sprinkle mint chocolate chips on top of the batter before baking. It's quick and easy, and tastes really good.
