About the Recipe

Ingredients

  • Baking spray

  • 60g unsweetened chocolate

  • 50 whole chocolate mints, such as Andes

  • 1 stick plus 1 tablespoon butter, softened

  • 200g sugar

  • 2 large eggs

  • 90g all-purpose flour

  • 1/4 teaspoon mint extract

  • 30g bittersweet chocolate, chopped fine

Preparation

Step 1


Preheat the oven to 160 degrees C. Spray a 24-well nonstick mini muffin pan generously with baking spray.  


Step 2


Melt the unsweetened chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl in the microwave. Remove from the microwave and stir in 8 mints until all melted. Let cool slightly.  


Step 3


In the bowl of a stand mixer with the paddle attachment, cream 1 stick of the butter with the sugar. Beat in the eggs one at a time. With the mixer on low, slowly drizzle in the cooled chocolate mixture, mixing until combined. Add the flour and mix thoroughly. Scrape the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula, add the mint extract and mix again.


Step 4


Using a tablespoon or small cookie scoop, scoop the batter into the prepared mini muffin pan. Bake until the edges are set and a toothpick comes out clean, 11 to 15 minutes. Let rest in the pan 5 minutes and then turn upside down out of the pan and allow to cool.  


Step 5


Combine 30 to 36 mints in a microwave-safe bowl with the remaining 1 tablespoon butter and the bittersweet chocolate. Microwave and stir until melted and smooth.  


Step 6


Dip the brownie bites in the chocolate, concentrating on the top "cone" part. Allow to set for a few minutes. Chop the remaining mints and sprinkle them on the top. Set in the freezer for 10 minutes if you need them to set right away. Yum!
