I love brownies!
And I will try all things brownies!
Like this Brownie Batter Bark. A layer of white chocolate, topped with a layer of brownie batter, then topped with a layer of dark chocolate! How good does that sound? However, I wanted to add something to it- make it my own! Peppermint! I added a little peppermint extract to the dark chocolate layer, then sprinkled on chopped Andes mints! You get a hint of the peppermint, without loosing the taste of the brownie batter. A perfect after dinner treat!
One Year Ago: Butter Pecan Ice Cream
Peppermint Brownie Batter Bark
Recipe adapted from Cookies and Cups
12 oz. white melting chocolate
3 cups dried brownie mix
12 tablespoons (1 1/2 sticks) butter, softened
10 oz. dark melting chocolate
1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract
2/3 cup finely chopped Andes mints
Line a baking sheet with silpat (parchment paper or wax paper will also work) (I used an 11″x17″ baking sheet).
Melt the white chocolate according to your favorite method (I used the microwave). Spread the melted white chocolate evenly over the prepared baking sheet. Place in the refrigerator for 10 minutes.
In a small mixing bowl, mix together the dried brownie mix and butter. You want to make sure that all the dried mix has been incorporated with the butter (kind of like creaming butter and sugar for most cookie recipes). After the white chocolate has set for 10 minutes, remove it from the refrigerator and evenly spread on the brownie mixture. Return the baking sheet to the refrigerator for another 10 minutes.
After 10 minutes, melt the dark chocolate according to your favorite method. Once melted, stir in the peppermint extract. Working quickly, and in small sections, spread on the dark chocolate and sprinkle on the chopped Andes mints. Note: working in small sections is easiest, as the chocolate will set up very quickly on the cold brownie batter, then the chopped mints won’t stick!
Return the baking sheet to the refrigerator for another 10 minutes. Once the chocolate has set, break into pieces and enjoy!
Made with love, not calories!
