Step by Step Method

Brownie Base

Step 1

Melt the butter and chopped chocolate in a in a medium microwave safe bowl in 20 second increments, stirring between each, untill mixture is smooth. Allow to cool for 10 minutes.

Step 2

Adjust the oven rack to the lower third position and preheat oven to 350°F (177°C).

Step 3

Line the bottom and sides of a 9×13 baking pan* with aluminum foil or parchment paper, leaving an overhang on all sides. Set aside.

Step 4

Whisk the granulated and brown sugars into the cooled chocolate/butter mixture.

Step 5

Add the eggs, one at a time, whisking until smooth after each addition.

Step 6

Whisk in the vanilla.

Step 7

Fold in the salt, flour, and cocoa powder.

Step 8

Pour batter into the prepared baking pan and bake for 35-36 minutes or until the brownies begin to pull away from the edges of the pan. A toothpick inserted in the center should come out with only a few moist crumbs when the brownies are done.

Allow the brownies to cool completely in the pan set on a wire rack and once completely cooled, lift the foil out of the pan using the overhang on the sides. Place on a baking sheet as you make the frosting.

Step 12

Add the peppermint extract and food coloring and beat on high for 1 full minute. (Taste and add a drop or two more peppermint extract if desired.)

Step 13

Frost the cooled brownies and place the baking sheet in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour

Step 14

Melt the butter and chocolate chips in a medium microwave safe bowl in 20 second increments, stirring after each, in the microwave.

Step 15

Once melted and smooth, pour over mint layer and gently spread with a knife or offset spatula.

Step 16

Place the brownies back in the refrigerator to chill for 1 at least another hour to allow chocolate to set

Step 17

Once chilled, remove from the refrigerator and cut into squares.
