Last week, I came up with a crazy idea while munching on candy at the movies. Peppermint Patty stuffed… something. Other than my mouth, that is. Cookies, cake… something sweet and decadent. After some thinking (and drooling), brownies seemed like the only appropriate answer. Chocolate with minty chocolate in the middle? Yes.
I discovered this brownie recipe awhile back. Since then, it’s been my go-to. I don’t know why I haven’t posted it before.
It is incredibly fudgy and rich. The addition of espresso powder really brings out the chocolate flavor. Espresso + chocolate + mint? How can you go wrong?
And working with warm ingredients make the chocolate chips break down into gooey goodness…
Oh holy guacamole, I need to go get another one right now. And I need it to be warm and put a good helping of ice cream right over the top of it.
So please… go do yourself and your family (if you are physically able to not eat them all…) a favor and bake these. Right. This. Minute. Because there is nothing like them.
