I haven’t tested a real dessert in a few days so, tonight is the night. MINT. CHOCOLATE. CHIP. BROWNIES. nom.
Brownies are delicious on their own, but I mean you can’t really go wrong by adding mint frosting, right? I’ll make them and let you know how it goes.
Well, the recipe I tested was very… minty. The brownie was flourless so it was extremely fudge-like in texture which was good, but it was a little too minty for my liking. I followed the recipe as it was written for each step except for the frosting. The frosting calls for 4 teaspoons of mint extract, which is a lot of flavor for the amount of frosting the recipe makes. So, I added the flavoring in 1/2 teaspoons increments in order to figure out how much extract was enough to give a mint flavor but not taste like mouthwash. Total, I added 1 tsp of mint extract and that was plenty. If I were to make the recipe again I think I would only add 1/2 teaspoon because the mint flavor was really intense. I’ll provide the link for the recipe so you can try it out for yourself.
I’m excited about tomorrow’s recipe: Spicy Baked Chicken Nuggets. Stay Tuned.
