12 Weeks of Christmas Cookies- Andes Mint Brownies

So last week we started with my boys favorite cookie! And this week a favorite of mine!

One of my favorite combinations is chocolate and mint and I absolutely love Andes Mints! Chocolate Mint hot cocoa is one of my favorite drinks during the holidays and now I have that same flavor but it in a brownie form. While I normally use a box mix, I did use a homemade brownie mix for this recipe. While looking through a cookbook the title stated this was the Best Cocoa Brownie and I really have to agree.
The brownie was the perfect combination of fudge and not too cakey.

Andes Mint Brownies
recipe adapted from Dining with Pioneers II

  • 1 stick butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 2/3 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup cocoa (I used Hershey's Special Dark)
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 cup chopped Andes mints (I found a bag of andes mints chips and used those)
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Grease and lightly flour a square 9x9 pan.
  3. Mix butter, sugar, eggs, and vanilla until well blended.
  4. Sift dry ingredients together and stir into butter mixture.
  5. Stir in chopped andes mints until well blended.
  6. Pour mixture into pan and cook for about 20 minutes.
  7.  Cool and Enjoy!
