While trying to come up with something new to take to our bi-weekly Home Group, my mind kept drawing a blank! My hubby suggested (his favorite) “just make some brownies”. He knows me and I can NOT just make plain brownies!! haha So while standing in the baking aisle of Walmart we (my hubby and 5kids) all began to list things we like or thought would be good with brownies! I dont remember who exactly suggested mint, but a light bulb went off when they said it! Ohhhh I LOVE mint chocolate things! “Okay I can do this, How can I make them over the top mint brownies?”, I thought. Well this is what I came up with! ๐Ÿ™‚

Mint Truffle Brownies

  • 1 8oz. Philadelphia (1/3 less fat) Cream Cheese
  • 1/2 tsp. Pure Mint Extract
  • 1cup Confectionery Sugar
  • 1cup Cool Whip Lite
  • 2 brownie mixes and the ingredients needed to make them
  • 1/2cup Andes baking chips
  • 12-15 Cool Mint Oreos
  • 3tsp. veg oil
  • 1Tbsp. Milk
  • 4 squares Ghirardelli dark chocolate bars
  • 4-5drops of green food coloring

Make the brownies according to the boxes directions. I LOVE my box brand Hershey’s Ultimate Chocolate Brownie mix. I do love to make Brownies from scratch but these taste so amazing and they are quick when I dont have all the ingredients to make them from scratch! ๐Ÿ™‚

Pour the batter into a greased pan (because I used 2mixes, I used my Pampered Chef cookie sheet)

Before putting them in the preheated oven @375F spread the Andes baking chips across the top of the batter

Bake for about 25minutes or until a knife comes out clean from the middle of the pan

While the brownies are baking, combine in a large mixing bowl the room temp cream cheese, green food coloring and mint extract, till smooth

Add in the Confectionery sugar a little at a time (feel free to play with the amount in this, make as sweet as you like)

Once well mixed, fold in the Cool Whip until combined

Let set in the Fridge till brownies are completely cooled

Once brownies are completely cooled, spread the mint truffle mix on top of entire brownie

crush (I used my hands) up the Oreos and sprinkle them all over the top

In a smallย  microwave safe bowl combine the chocolate pieces and milk, and melt in the micro for 30sec.

Once melted stir in the oil, and then take a spoon and drizzle the Chocolate over top of the whole brownie

Cut and ENJOY!! ๐Ÿ™‚
