Mint Fudge Brownies
These LOOK like your normal brownies at first glance, but oh they are NOT.... they are sooo much better! WOW! I brought these to my work's potluck and they were a hit. Everyone was like "Oh yum, brownies" then they would try to cut them apart and saw they were brownie fudgy goodness... WITH Andes Mints! WOWZA! Thanks to Baking Blond for posting this yumminess!
6 TBS butter
6 oz semisweet chocolate (chopped
2 oz. bittersweet chocolate (chopped)
1 cup sugar
1/4 tsp mint extract (I couldn't find this so i didn't use, which i found good b/c the andes mints are VERY flavorful!)
1/4 tsp vanilla (Doubled this since i didn't use the mint)
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup Andes chips (or mints, chopped)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Line an 8-inch square baking dish with parchment paperdecember-015
In a heat-proof bowl, melt together butter and chcolate in the microwave in 30 second intervals stirring after each interval until smooth. Allow to cool for 5 mintues.
In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl; set aside.
Whisk or beat the sugar into the chocolate mixture. Add eggs and mint extract mixing until combined and smooth. Add flour mixture and mix until combined. Gently fold in the 3/4 cup Andes chips.
Carefully pour batter to prepared pan, and smooth top with an offset spatula. Evenly sprinkle remaining Andes chips over top of the brownies. Bake for 25-20 mintues or until a cake tester comes out with a few crumbs.
Allow to cool before cutting and serving.
