Ingredients
Bottom Chocolate Layer
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup (13,7g) butter, melted
  • 1 cup (191g) sugar
  • ½ tsp (2,5g) peppermint extract
  • 2 squares unsweetened chocolate, melted
  • ½ cup (49g) flour, optional
Middle Mint Frosting
  • 2 Tbsp (28g) butter, softened
  • 1 Tbsp (15g) cream
  • 1 tsp (5g) peppermint extract
  • 1 cup (130g) powdered sugar
  • Green food coloring, optional
Top Chocolate Layer
  • 2 squares unsweetened chocolate, melted
  • 2 Tbsp (28g) butter, melted
Instructions
Bottom Chocolate Layer
  1. In a bowl, beat the eggs.
  2. Add the melted butter and sugar.
  3. Mix in the peppermint and melted chocolate.
  4. Stir in the flour if you want a brownie layer. (I prefer the flour-less version.)
  5. Pour the chocolate batter in a greased 9-inch pan.
  6. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes. If you do the flour-less version, check after 15 minutes. Don’t overbake them because they will set as they cool.
  7. Cool for at least 30 minutes.
Middle Mint Frosting
  1. Blend all of the ingredients well.
  2. If desired, stir in several drops of green food coloring.
  3. Spread the mint frosting on the cooled baked chocolate layer.
  4. Place in the refrigerator to chill for five minutes.
Top Chocolate Layer
  1. Mix the melted chocolate and butter well.
  2. Once the middle mint frosting is firm, spread the butter-chocolate mixture over the top.
  3. Place in the refrigerator to chill for five minutes.
  4. Cut the chocolate mint bars into strips or squares, as desired.
  5. Store the chocolate in a sealed container in the refrigerator.
