They aren’t overly rich, or too sweet. The creamy frosting pairs perfectly with chocolate brownies. A delicious decadence.
How to make triple layer mint brownies
Step 1: or layer 1 is a perfect chewy brownie layer. I’ll be honest- sometimes, when i’m in a pinch i use a family size store bought box of make your own brownies. just make sure it will fit a 9×13 pan. If youre using a box that makes 8×8 just double it- use two boxes.
Layer 2: A creamy peppermint frosting.
To make the buttercream frosting peppermint you use a only a little bit of peppermint extract. During the holidays I love to make them holiday colors and had candy cane chips inside and on top for decoration.
Homemade fudge sauce
Layer 3: I love a light drizzle of homemade fudge sauce. I use this easy, fast but incredible recipe. I drizzle the sauce lightly over the brownies, but you can drizzle as much or as little as you prefer!
If you’re making holiday brownies you can top it now with crushed candy canes.
Chewy gooey chocolate brownies, fluffy peppermint buttercream frosting & a light drizzle of homemade fudge is the perfect decedent dessert you can put down.
