Thick, fudgy flourless brownies, mint buttercream and chocolate ganache – these flourless chocolate mint brownies are outstanding.
You guys, these brownies. THESE. BROWNIES. They’re minty, they’re chocolatey, and they’re amazing. And they’re not just any chocolate mint brownies – they’re made with melted Andes mint chips as the base. That in itself means they’re amazing.
These brownies are nice and dense – in a beautifully fudgy way. The Andes mints lend such a nice minty taste without overpowering your palate with mint flavor. The minty green buttercream is also so subtly minty and is such a fun and festive color for St. Patricks Day.
You can leave the buttercream white but there’s just something about green in desserts that screams mint. It’s pretty much like this: if you see green paired with chocolate in a dessert, you know it’s going to be mint. And you know it’s going to be awesome.
The chocolate ganache just sends these babies over the top straight to brownie perfection. That liiiittle bit extra chocolate flavor helps balance out the minty goodness. It’s one chocolate mint brownie masterpiece.
And did I mention they’re flourless? That’s right, no flour so they’re gluten-free (like everything else I make) and your gluten eating friends and family would never know. In fact, if you make these for them, they’ll probably be singing gluten-free praises and beg for more gluten-free treats. Hopefully not literally singing though if they’re anything like me or my family. We’re all pretty much tone-deaf. Let’s just say, “happy birthday” sounds spectacular.
These brownies are based off of my Chocolate Hazelnut Brownies, which are one of my most popular recipes on this site. So super fudge – the best and only want to enjoy a brownie is if it’s fudge. Why make a cake brownie when you can just make a cake instead? Brownies are meant to be fudge, decadent, delicious and irresistible. That, my friends, is exactly what these flourless chocolate mint brownies are. Enjoy!
