I love brownies. In fact, I love brownies from the box because they are so fudgy and delicious. I could try making them from scratch, but why mess with perfection, right?
So I was thinking about those Peppermint Brownies I made around Christmas and was lamenting a bit because Candy Cane Kisses are only sold at Christmastime. Boo.
I was dreaming of something as decadent and luxurious as those as I walked the candy aisle when I came across the Andes Mints. So I picked them up with dreams of minty brownie goodness and continued my shopping trip. Then, I came across
Andes mints baking chips in the baking aisle! Even better since now I wouldn’t have to chop up the candies.
After I made these, I was immediately in love! My husband, however, was a harder sell. In his own words, he likes “pure unadulterated brownies” and considers nuts in brownies to be blasphemous. Yet even he, the brownie purist, loved these brownies. So go. Make some brownies. With all this snow and yuck, you deserve it.
Crème de Menthe Brownies
An Amy Original
1 family size box of brownie mix plus eggs, water, and oil as directed
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
1 ¼ cups Andes Crème de Menthe baking chips
Preheat oven to 350, or as directed on the brownie box. Spray a 9x13 inch pan with non stick spray, set aside.
Mix brownies, as directed. Fold in the chocolate chips. Pour into the pan and bake as directed until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Immediately after removing brownies from the oven, sprinkle the
Andes mints oven the brownies. The heat from the brownies will melt the chips. Cool completely.
