Proper food combining can incorporate art, science and personal preference. But one thing is universal: after a savory, spicy meal with loads of flavor (think garlic, onion, cheese, etc.) an after-dinner mint is a must. Now think what could happen if you packed several of those mints into a decadent, chocolate brownie. And then added some high-quality dark chocolate. Yup – it’s absolute after-dinner perfection. It's almost like it was mint-to-be.

Note: This recipe uses DAGOBA Cacao Powder and Chocodrops. We encourage you to check out DAGOBA's website for more ingredients and recipe ideas.

Ingredients

    Brownies:

  • 1 box dark chocolate brownie mix*
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 1 cup DAGOBA 74% premium dark chocolate drops
  • 18-20 peppermint Hint Mints, crushed (yield about 2 tablespoons)
  • Mint chocolate glaze:

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon mint extract
  • 8-10 peppermint Hint Mints, crushed (yield about 1 tablespoon)

Directions

Preheat oven to 350°. Grease a 9x13 pan with non-stick spray.

Pour brownie mix, eggs, oil, chocolate drops, water and crushed mints into a medium bowl and mix well.

Transfer batter to pan, and bake for 20-25 minutes or until edges are nicely crisped.

Allow to cool, and then slice into squares or diamond shapes.

Mix together glaze ingredients, and drizzle over cooled brownies. Sprinkle with crushed mint powder.
