Andes Mint Brownies

300 Shares

These Andes Mint Brownies start with a boxed brownie mix and are topped with melted Andes Mints to make a crisp, cool ganache that take these brownies from basic to dessert superstar.  

So we are moved!  Well, we are moved in the sense that all of our belongings are at our new house, but I spent most of Saturday in my pajamas because I couldn’t find any of my clothes.  But I can think of worse ways to spend a Saturday!  So I may be a little more sporadic on my posting until visitors would no longer describe my housekeeping style as “there appears to have been a struggle.” But, something that totally helps with moving stress — or any kind of stress — are Andes Mint Brownies.  Eat them right away or store them in the freezer to break out for emergencies, but I can tell you from personal experience that nothing cools you off from moving in 100° heat quite like a crisp, cool, minty layer of chocolate on top of a soft brownie.  

Andes Mint Brownies Ingredients

The great thing about these brownies is they look and taste fancy, but you’ll just need a 9×13 brownie mix and a bag of Andes mints and whatever ingredients you need to prepare the brownie mix.  First up, make and bake your brownies per the package directions.  While they’re still hot out of the oven, top with your Andes Mints.

Once the Andes mints are soft take the back of your spoon and smooth them into a frosting.

Once the topping is smooth, pop them in the fridge to help the topping harden up a bit and they’re ready to serve.  The topping does crack a bit when you cut it, but I think it adds to the charm because you can see that crispness of the topping.  These are good served right away and also keep well in the freezer.  Pro tip: they can be eaten directly out of the freezer with no defrosting for any and all chocolate emergencies.  In case that tip is helpful to you :).Andes Mints Frosted Brownies | Spoonful of Easy #easybrownies

I’ve also tried this with York peppermint patties as well and would love to try it with some other candy bars.  Anything you’re looking forward to trying?  I’d love to hear in the comments!
