Just one simple step after pulling your brownies from the oven transforms them into ooey, gooey Andes Mint Brownies!
We are completely obsessed with these Andes Mint Brownies around here. I’ve made them a few times over the years but my little ones went through a phase in their younger years where they wouldn’t eat mint. Chocolate? Brownies? YES. Chocolate and mint? No way.
I know. My life hasn’t been easy :)
But you know what is easy? These Andes Mint Brownies. What’s perfect about them is that you can use any brownie recipe you like. I make homemade brownies often but I also keep boxed mixes around. However you make your brownies, you can add this simple step after you pull them out of the oven and voilà! Andes Mint Brownies.
In the video at the top of this post, I used a quick boxed brownie mix so I could show you how simple it is. All I do to turn regular brownies into Andes Mint Brownies is to add a layer of Andes mints while the brownies are still piping hot. After five minutes, the mints are melted and you can just spread them out to get a thin layer of chocolate mint “frosting”.
These brownies are perfect eaten while still warm or at room temperature. If you prefer the chocolate mint topping to be soft and melty, just give each brownie a quick run in the microwave before enjoying :)
- 1 box brownie mix, prepared according to package directions (or your favorite homemade brownie recipe)
- 1 box Andes Mints
- Prepare your brownies as directed. As soon as they're out of the oven, place Andes Mints in a single layer on top of hot brownies. Allow to melt for approximately five minutes. Using an offset spatula, spread to cover brownies like a "frosting".
