My kids have not known a Christmas without these brownies. And I’ve never made them!
I’m fortunate to have a group of ladies that I get together with every year to bake, dip, and decorate our way to a tasty Christmas season. We call it “Cookie Baking Day” and my family is happy to do whatever is required to accommodate it.
My sister, Amy, makes these mint brownies every year, and it just wouldn’t be Christmas without them.
Before you even read the recipe, let me tell you: this is a once a year treat. Why do I say that? Oh, maybe the fact that each of the three layers includes an entire stick of butter. Granted, they’re made in a large pan…that’s still a lot of butter!
The bottom is a moist brownie, then there’s a layer of creamy minty goodness, and all of that it topped with rich, chocolate icing.
This might sound weird, but I like mine chilled. That’s probably because we keep our containers of Christmas cookies in the garage on a shelf. Give it a try…see which way you like them best!
What are your Christmas cookie must-haves?
Will you give these Mint Brownies a try?
