Happiness and Chocolate Abound

For the . . . um, three of you who wanted the Andes Brownies recipe, I successfully procured it tonight, thanks to Kim who brought them to the party. Now all I need is someone to have an event where I can justify making a whole pan of these mint brownies (but please – a party with only a few people so I can bring back at least half of them).

  • 3/4 c flour
  • 1/4 t baking soda
  • 1/4 t salt
  • 2 c semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 t vanilla
  • 1/3 c butter
  • 2/3 c sugar
  • 2 T water
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 pkg Andes mints


  • 3 squares of unsweetened chocolate
  • 3 T butter
  • 3 c powdered sugar
  • 1/4 t salt
  • 1/2 c half & half
  • 1 t vanilla



  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease a 9 inch square pan.
  2. In a small bowl, stir together flour, baking soda, and salt.
  3. In a large bowl, combine chocolate chips and vanilla.
  4. In a saucepan, combine butter, sugar, and water. Bring this mixture just to a boil. Pour hot mixture over chips and stir. Add eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Stir in the flour mixture. Fold in nuts at this time, if desired. Pour 1/2 the batter into the pan, put down a layer of the mints, and then top with the remaining batter, spreading evenly.
  5. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until slightly firm to touch. Cool completely before frosting or cutting.


  1. Melt chocolate and butter in microwave. Put the powdered sugar in a mixer bowl and pour the melted chocolate and butter on top. Add half & half, salt and vanilla. Beat with wire beater until creamy. Chill for better consistency before spreading.

Yum, yum, yum. I gained five pounds just looking at this recipe. Thanks for sharing the goodness, Kim!

    Those sound devine. I can’t wait to try them. Andes mints are so great on their own, but with brownies and chocolate…oh the possibilities. Thanks!
