Andes Mints Brownies
Start your minty brownie journey with a classic and indulgent treat – Andes Mints brownies. These iconic mint chocolates add a delightful layer of creamy mint between the soft brownie layers.
Start by preparing Lehi Mills Mint Truffle Brownies. When they are almost done baking, sprinkle crushed Andes Mints on top and allow them to melt. Spread the melted chocolate evenly and let it set. The result? A luscious, minty masterpiece that's perfect for any occasion.
Candy Cane Crunch Brownies
If you're looking to add a festive twist to your brownies, crush some candy canes and fold them into your brownie batter for a festive and minty twist. The candy cane bits will add a delightful crunch to your brownies while infusing them with extra peppermint flavor.
These Candy Cane Crunch Brownies are perfect for Christmas or any winter gathering. Don't forget to sprinkle some extra crushed candy canes on top for a stunning finish!
Mint Frosting Bliss
Mint-flavored frosting can take your mint brownies to a whole new level. Bake your brownies as usual and after they have cooled completely, spread a layer of mint frosting on top. You can whip up a minty frosting using powdered sugar, butter, and a touch of mint extract.
Add some green food coloring for a pop of color. The frosting not only adds a burst of minty goodness but also a delightful contrast in texture to your brownies.
If you're a fan of extra-chocolatey brownies, mint chocolate chips are a quick and easy way to infuse minty goodness into your brownies. Simply fold a generous amount of mint chips into your brownie batter before pouring it into the baking pan. As the brownies bake, the mint chips will melt, creating pockets of rich, minty chocolate throughout your brownies.
The contrast between the smooth mint and the fudgy brownie is heavenly. You can also sprinkle some extra mint chips on top of the brownie batter before baking for a visual and flavorful boost.
Peppermint Patty Surprise
Peppermint patties are another fantastic addition to your brownies. For a delightful surprise in every bite, stuff your brownies with peppermint patties. Prepare your brownie batter as normal and pour half of it into your baking pan. Then, place a layer of mini peppermint patties on top. Cover the patties with the remaining batter and bake as usual.
As the brownies cook, the patties will melt, creating gooey, minty pockets of deliciousness. When you cut into these brownies, you'll reveal the hidden minty surprise.
Thin Mint Crust Mint Brownies
Girl Scout Thin Mints are a beloved classic, and when incorporated into brownies, they take on a whole new level of deliciousness. These cookies can also make a fantastic crust for your mint brownies. Crush a sleeve of Thin Mints and combine the crumbs with melted butter.
Press this mixture into the bottom of your brownie pan, then pour the Lehi Mills Mint Truffle brownie batter over it. Bake as directed, and you'll have a brownie with a delightful cookie crust, giving it an extra layer of minty goodness.
Mint brownies are the perfect combination of rich, fudgy goodness and refreshing mint flavor. With the help of Lehi Mills brownie mixes and these mint brownie ideas, you can take your baking game to the next level and create mouthwatering desserts that will leave everyone craving more.
