With St. Paddy's Day bearing down on us fast, I thought it was time to re-post a family favorite recipe for Mint Brownies with Mint Buttercream Frosting and Chocolate Ganache.
These are a favorite at both Christmas time and St. Patrick's Day - chewy, fudgy brownies topped with the most light and fluffy Mint Buttercream Frosting, then glazed or drizzled with a Dark Chocolate Ganache.
We've called these "Starbuck Peppermint Brownies" for years...reminiscent of the mint brownies that once upon a time were baked fresh at Starbuck's. Seems like a lifetime ago!
But who doesn't love a rich and chewy brownie, loaded with mint & dark chocolate chips? The Mint Buttercream Frosting has a secret ingredient that creates the lightest "crust" on top - similar to bakery frosting. And you can either pour the Dark Chocolate Ganache as a single layer on top, or drizzle on top of your cut brownies before serving. So pretty and fun!
These go FAST around here - and if I'm lucky, there will be a few of decadent brownies left to share!
