Mint Brownies (or Brrrrrrrrrownies, if you prefer)

These may look like regular brownies...

But inside they are filled with chopped bits of minty dark chocolates:
See, I still bake when it's pretty hot out, and sometimes you want to bring something to friends that will be refreshing and chocolate-y, instead of heavy and overly rich. These are made from a recipe in Dorie Greenspan's "Baking: From My Home To Yours," a favorite among my baking volumes.

Your first step, as always, is to melt chocolate and butter. I like this recipe a lot because once that is done, you mix in sugar:
and then eggs, salt and flour, and your candy bits (the recipe actually calls for york peppermint patties, but I found the trader joe's chocolates above quite delicious and refreshing).

Less than half an hour later in a foil lined pan (easy cleaning!)'re done!

  1. Using mint chocolate is a great twist for brownies! Delicious.
