Mint Chip Brownies

A fun minty twist on a brownie!   The entire batch lasted less than a day in my house.

This was inspired St. Patrick's Day Recipe post over at and decided to make a version of it.

  • Brownie Mix
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 10 oz bag Mint Chocolate Chips
  • 1 16 oz can white frosting
  • 1/2 teaspoon mint extract
  • 12-15 drops green food coloring
  • Non-stick cooking spray.

Make the brownies according to the instructions on the package; I used Pillsbury brownie mix and it called for 1/2 cup oil, 1/4 water and 2 eggs but mixes can vary. Once mixed, add 1/2 cup of the mint chips and stir until mixed in.   Spray non-stick 9X13 baking pan and pour in batter and bake according to instructions on browine package, the mix I used was at 350 degrees 28-31 mins.   Once done, remove from oven and allow to cool.

Once the brownies are cool, open up the can of frosting and pour in the mint extract and green food coloring and mix thoroughly with a knife.

Frost the brownies with the icing

Shake the remaining chips over the top of the frosted brownies, cut into squares then serve.
