Heavenly layered Mint Brownies. I am so excited to finally post these/make them. They are so delicious and mint and chocolate is my favorite flavor combination! Brownies like these were sold on my college campus (BYU), and they were good, but always a little dried out. These? No. Not dry at all! They are perfectly amazing and everyone needs to give them a try. The chocolate topping is so silky and just melts in your mouth.
Sometimes taking food photos is a struggle. Cupcakes always look cute and as long as you “top” them with something fun, the photos are easy. But brownies… they can be a pain. They’re brown, gushy, and…blah. Plus, everyone knows what a brownie looks like so it’s hard to make them say “Wow, check out that brownie!”
I did my best.
Poured out the batter, baked it, spread out the fluffy mint filling, then poured on the ganache. (Ganache is a fancy word for “chocolate topping”). Make sure to chill the brownies after you put on the mint filling to help it set up a little before pouring on the ganache. AND also pop them back in the fridge/freezer after the ganache to get that top layer firm enough to cut. Little tip… when you slice, wipe off your knife between cuts if you want them to look really pretty
