Mint and white chocolate brownies

half a cup melted butter
half a cup unsweetened cocoa
one cup sugar
two eggs
two teaspoons vanilla extract
half a cup flour
one quarter teaspoon salt
half a cup mint chocolate chips and half a cup white chocolate chips

1. preheat oven to 350 degrees
2. mix together the melted butter and cocoa until smooth
3. add sugar and mix well
4. add eggs, one at a time, and stir until combined
5. add vanilla, flour, and salt and stir until just mixed
6. fold in chocolate chips (you can substitute anything you want... smarties, peanut butter, nuts, maraschino cherries, etc!)
7. spread batter in a greased eight-inch square pan and bake for 25 minutes
8. don't overbake! or your brownies will be dry. I discussed this with my mother and for brownies, unlike for cake, a toothpick inserted should not come out clean, it should have moist crumbs clinging to it.
9. eat like a pig and enjoy. I cleaned out half the pan before Davis got home...


  1. Hello - happy to see a fellow Canadian!

    I REALLY like the sound of these brownies, so I'll be trying them for sure. I notice that you like to make jewellery, and that's what I do for a living (you could call it an obsession). I also love to bake and eat the results. So I think your blog might be a great one for me to follow!

  2. Yum! I would be making these tomorrow if it wasn't too hot to run the oven. Thanks for visiting my way! : )

  3. Those look sooo delicious. I love your plate with the red bird on it, by the way.

  4. Don't care for mint but they look amazing!!

  5. yum! can't go wrong with chocolate :D

  6. mint, chocolate, a pretty plate. perfect!

  7. I normally avoid chocolate, but those look very yummy! And the recipe looks easy too!

  8. oh boy. how i wish there were brownies here right now...
    thanks for the recipe -- i feel like i can (probably) handle 8 ingredients. :P
