I’m sure by now that we all know I love Chocolate. Like, I’m not trying to keep it a secret or anything.
And so I came up with this amazing Chocolate Mint Brownie recipe. Chocolate and mint is one of my favorite combinations, and these are truly superb! This recipe uses an 8×8” or 9×9” pan, but you can double the recipe and bake it in a 9×13” if you’ve got a crowd. They come together quickly and as a bonus, your house smells pretty awesome as they bake! I have no idea if they freeze well because I never have any left over to freeze. 🙂
If you don’t have raw chocolate powder, you can get some here.
In a pinch you can substitute 2 – 1 oz baking squares for the chocolate powder and reduce the butter by 2 Tbsp.
Now, go grab your apron and let’s make some chocolate mint amazingness!

Chocolate Mint Brownies
- 10 Tbs butter (1 stick + 2 Tbsp)
- 6 Tbsp raw chocolate powder
- 1 cup organic evaporated sugar cane juice
- ½ cup organic, unbleached flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- ½ tsp sea salt
- 2 eggs
- 1 ½ tsp peppermint extract
Heat the butter in a medium-sized saucepan just until melted.
In a small bowl combine the chocolate powder, sugar, flour, baking powder, and sea salt. Stir well.
Add the chocolate mixture to the butter and stir until it’s well mixed.
Add the eggs and peppermint extract and mix again.
Pour the batter into a well buttered pan and bake at 350°F for 25 to 35 minutes.
It will pull away from the sides slightly when it’s done. Be careful not to over bake, though, because it will continue to cook as it cools.
Let them cool a bit then cut into squares and enjoy! I usually get 16 brownies from a square pan. I love to eat then when they are still a little warm.
OK. I confess, I usually eat one when they first come out of the oven. 🙂 They are so. stinkin. good.
Anyway, warm with ice cream would be amazing too! And if there are any left to cool they are pretty good cold as well!
So, go ahead, indulge a little. I won’t tell. Promise.
