Grasshopper Brownies – fudgy brownies with minty butter cream frosting and topped with a chocolate ganache.
Brownies are one of my favorite things ever. I have almost 40 homemade brownies recipes on the blog, so it should come as no surprise if you have visited before. And the fudgier the better! These Peanut Butter Stuffed Brownies might be my all time favorite.
People tend to associate chocolate and mint with either Christmas or St. Patrick’s Day. But they are totally wrong, it should be enjoyed all year round! No Bake Mint Chocolate Chip Pie is perfect in the summer when you don’t want to heat up the house.
I have been making the same Easy Homemade Brownies Recipe since I was a little girl. The only bigger brownie fan in the world might be my dad. And that is just a maybe, we are pretty much neck and neck for our obsession. I grew up making this same fudgy brownie recipe almost every weekend. We topped with chocolate frosting, but today I am taking the up a notch with mint and a chocolate ganach! Because if you are making brownies from scratch, why not go all out!
The key to fudgy brownies requires a couple things. Plenty of eggs, not a ton of flour and vegetable oil in place of butter. That way you get rich, chocolatey, fudgy brownies that aren’t greasy. I use Crisco 100% Pure Vegetable Oil for reliable great results every time. I am excited to be a partner with Crisco this year. Check out the Meatball Sub Egg Rolls I made last time.
To make these brownies fit for the holidays, I topped with with mint buttercream, similar to these Mint Chocolate Chip Brownies. Then a rich chocolate ganache. I like my ganache to stay kind of gooey, not get hard and separate from the frosting. So I like to use equal parts of heavy cream to chocolate. But if you like yours to solidify more, then you can use more chocolate.
So mix up your holiday baking these year and add these Grasshopper Brownies to the list, trust me everyone will love you for it!
