In the air:
Are you like me? On your jaunts to the grocery store, you somehow manage to pick up a bunch of items NOT on your grocery list? Do you justify it by saying “it’s on sale” or “I know I can use this in something”? Then you open one of your kitchen cupboards and realize what a disaster they were because they were stuffed full of all the extra items you bought for no good reason?
My cupboards were in need of some purging. Thus, baking was in order.
The core of this baking adventure was mint chocolate chips.
The chips were melted with some butter.
Off the heat, I added brown sugar, eggs, vanilla and flour.
Love this one bowl recipe. I’m all about minimal cleanup. Batter was poured into a pan then into the oven to bake.
Voila minty fudge brownies!
Fantastic mint aroma, almost refreshing. Then you were hit by the warm smell of cocoa and you realize the chocolatey goodness that sits before you. Cakey texture, a little crumbly but ridiculously moist and soft. Thank you, to the four eggs used in the recipe. I thought about using an extra half cup of mint chips just so I could use up the stash entirely. I’m glad I didn’t, the brownies had just the perfect hint of mint, not an overpowering taste. Delish! =)
