Easy Mint Brownies

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. Easy mint brownies are oh so tasty. For more mint try Frosted Thin Mint M&M Brownies, Chocolate Ganache Mint Brownies, and Peppermint Brownies.

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

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.
