Equipment

Ingredients

  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • ½ cup Andes mints chopped
  • 4 large eggs room temperature
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup light brown sugar packed
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil or other neutral oil
  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup cocoa powder dutch processed
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup Andes mints chopped
  • ¼ cup Andes mints finely chopped

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F and grease and line a 9x9 inch pan with parchment paper.
  • In a medium bowl, melt the butter, chocolate chips and ½ cup of Andes mints. While microwaving, stir every 30 seconds until the mixture is smooth. Let it cool slightly.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, granulated sugar and brown sugar for about 1 minute. Then, gradually stir in the slightly cooled chocolate mixture. Mix in the oil.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt. Then, mix them into the large bowl of wet ingredients until almost all of the flour streaks disappear.
  • Gently fold 1 cup of chopped Andes mints into the brownie batter and then spread the batter evenly into the prepared pan. Sprinkle the top with finely chopped mints.
  • Bake the brownies until the center is just very slightly jiggly (start checking around 35-40 minutes, it can take up to ~50 minutes, a toothpick inserted into the center should come out slightly gooey/crumbly).
    Let the brownies cool in the pan until they're firm enough to remove by pulling up on the parchment paper. Cool completely before cutting into 16 squares with a warm chef's knife.

Notes

I use about 50-60 total Andes mints for this recipe.
Store leftovers in an airtight container for up to 1 week or in the freezer for up to 1 month.
