Fudge Mint Brownies Recipe

An easy to make fudge mint brownies recipe.

I really love brownies. My favorite brownies are made with a recipe from my great aunt. It’s such a moist and yummy recipe. She always frosts her brownies with a yummy chocolate frosting too. It’s so good.

I wanted to switch up my aunt’s brownie recipe and make it a little festive for St. Patrick’s Day. I thought about trying to make lime swirl brownies, but lime just doesn’t seem to go with chocolate. My second choice and the winner was swirled fudge mint brownies.

Fudge mint brownies recipe that is easy to make and tastes great too.

In the past, I’ve added mint to the brownies and then sprinkled them with some crushed peppermint candies. It does make a great mint brownie but it wouldn’t be really anything special for St. Patrick’s Day. So instead, I altered the recipe to make a mix of blonde and chocolate brownies. I added just a touch of green food coloring, which made them festive, indeed.

Making the Swirled Fudge Mint Brownies Recipe

Mixing the Mint and Chocolate Batters

Mix the batter in separate bowls for this fudge mint brownies recipe.

First you will need two bowls. One to mix up the blonde brownie portion and the other for the regular brownies. Because the recipes are almost identical, one without cocoa powder, you can mix them up at the same time.

Once you have both bowls of the batter ready, it’s time for some fun. I dropped scoops of the brownie mix into the baking pan. Then I dropped the blonde brownie batter in between the chocolate brownie drops, to make a checkerboard type look. Well, sort of, as you can see mine was just a little messy.

My daughter thought I was crazy, at first. She asked me, “Are you sure you are making brownies?” I reassured her they would be like regular brownies when we were done. Just with mint.

Making the swirl pattern

I love there swirl of these fudge mint brownies.

Once you have a checkerboard pattern of green and brown, it’s time to mix them up. I ran the spatula three passes through the batter lengthwise and three passes crosswise. I think the swirl turned out pretty good. If you want more of a swirl pattern make a few more passes through the batter.

After the brownies were done baking they smelled great. I let the brownies fully cool before cutting them. Boy was that a difficult task. The brownie were nice and fudge-like, not cake-like at all. That is one of the reasons I love this recipe, for brownies.

The kids and I gave them a try. The flavor was good right, not too minty, a great balance of chocolate and mint. We used spearmint extract in our blonde batter, but peppermint would work great too.
