Grasshopper Mint Brownies
This holidays are swarming with baked goodies. Without fail, mint is usually one of the star ingredients to a good portion of the holiday recipes. People go crazy for that mint-chocolate duo. And why not? It is heavenly!
My aunt is known for these during the holiday season. The recipe is actually in my grandma’s cookbook, but I am pretty sure my aunt makes them way more than any person in our family! I normally have a brownie recipe I swear by and never venture from, but I make an exception for this brownie recipe in this particular recipe. The brownies are so rich and fudgy, just what you would want with all the yummy layers.
If you are looking for a delicious treat to add to your dessert plates this year, you really can’t go wrong with these! These brownies are fudgy, rich and packed with that chocolate-mint flavor combo perfect for the holidays! You won’t want to pass this one up!

They look amazing and my mom makes creme de menthe brownies as she calls them every year and they're one of my faves. I would race right for these if I saw them on a party tray! Pinned :)
I can't find heavy cream. Is this the same thing as whipping cream?
Chef in Training
yes heavy whipping cream :)
I had trouble with the ganache being really thin and runny. Any tips you suggest? Otherwise they were delicious :)
