Thick and fudgy easy mint brownies are filled with creamy mints. They are decadent and only require a few ingredients!

I just cannot get enough chocolate and mint, and these sure hit the spot. For more mint & chocolate recipes, try Mint Trifle, Mint Hot Cocoa, or Andes Mint Cookies.

Chocolate & Mint

Melissa from Bless this Mess has an over the top delish recipe for mint brownies. They are SO easy you might consider them a “cheater recipe”.

Homemade is always better, but sometimes life just needs simplifying. This is the perfect recipe to make in a pinch because it not only tastes amazing, but it comes together in a snap!

Chocolate and mint are a classic and crazy delish combination. I try to keep these simple ingredients so I am always available to whip up some brownies in a pinch! Most of these ingredients you can find at the dollar store, bonus!!!

Tips, Variations + Storing Info

To make fudgy brownies instead of cakey brownies don’t overbeat the batter or overbake it. Make it a little bit under even because then its fudgy, soft, and falling apart.

To get more mint flavor:

  • Crush or chop up additional thin mints and mix in the brownie batter to further distribute the mint flavor
  • Top the batter with chopped thin melts and have them melt on top of the brownies for super minty bits
  • For super minty flavor add peppermint extract
  • Mix in mint chips


  • Drizzle hot fudge sauce on top
  • Top with whipped cream
  • Spread mint frosting on top

Storing + Freezing

STORE brownies in an airtight bag/container at room temperature for up to a week to avoid them from hardening.

Wrap individual brownies in a layer of plastic wrap and a layer of foil FREEZE in a freezer safe bag for up to 3 months. You can also wrap an entire pan of brownies the same way.

  1. Brandi says:

    Do you really use 2 TBSP mint extract? or should it be 2 tsp? just want to be sure 🙂

    1. Lil'Luna Team says:

      It is 2 Tbsp, but you can certainly adjust the amount of mint extract to your liking. 🙂

  2. L.V. says:

    These were awful!! Even if you like mint, 2 tbsp of mint extract is WAY TO MUCH!!! I should have known better after putting in just 1 tbsp which I felt was over powering but thought maybe with the brownie it wouldn’t be so bad, UMM NO! And putting the choc. frosting on the top warm, it just melted the mint fronting and mixed together.

    I would go to Kneaders just for their mint brownies. Now I can make a full pan for about the same price as a single slice!
