4 (1 ounce) squares
2 1/2 teaspoons
milk, or as needed
1 1/2 teaspoons
green food coloring
1 1/3 cups
semisweet chocolate chips
If anyone is having toruble with the top chocolate layer here's a tip: My recipe does not microwave the chocolate (it got edited by the higher ups) Melt ingredients over low heat on the stove. Turn off heat and add vanilla. Then with a wooden spoon beat it for about 2 minutes until it starts to shine. This also helps to cool it a little. Then spread over green layer and chill. Hope that helps!!
I followed the recipe exactly and used the correct ingredients. The middle layer came out gritted, the top layer was runny and the brownie on the bottom was still mushy after 40 minutes in the oven at 350. The taste was okay but I will have to make changes if I make this again.
OMG! If I could give these more than 5* I would. So chocolatey, and minty...what's not to love?! These are very rich and creamy and sooo delicious! The one thing I did do is put each layer in the freezer for just a few minutes before putting in the fridge for 30 minutes. I think that this helped keep the layers defined from each other. If you haven't tried these...YOU NEED TO! This will definately become a regular in our house! Thanks Cher for sharing such a great recipe!!!
More than 5 stars! Very rich,very chocolatey, very minty....everything you can imagine. These are easy to make and sooo tasty! Will definately be making these again. Thanks Cher for a fantastic Brownie!
I made a change to the chocolate frosting that went on top. I melted 2 ounces of semi sweet chocolate, 1/3 cup butter and 4 TBL of light whipping cream in a double broiler. Once melted I took off heat and added about 3/4 cup powdered sugar. I then put the bowl with the mixture in it in a bowl of ice and whipped it. The end product is a fluffy fudge frosting. It was a massive hit. They were gone within 2 minutes! It sounds complicated for the frosting but well worth it and reall not that hard.
Oh my goodness these are rich and delicious. Had the in-laws over and everyone loved them. Did not have unsweetened chocolate so used 6 tablespoons of cocoa and 2 tablespoons of oil for two of the squares, and two squares of semi-sweet chocolate. I also only used approx. 1/2 tablespoon of vanilla in the final layer as I thought 1 tablespoon was a lot. Can't wait to try these with different flavor extracts.
These were great! Only had semisweet baking squares They were fine with those. Lessened the sugar by a quarter of a cuo because of teh semi sweet chocolate. Wish I had the regular chocolate. Will have to try again soon!
These have got to be the richest, the most decadent brownies I ever tried...I couldn't cook these in a 9 x 13 pan. I'm in an RV and that size of pan will not fit in my oven, so I baked in a 9 x 9 pan instead...I think I'll wait to make these again when I have a regular sized oven because they were so thick and chocolatey and rich...I should have cut them into 1-inch squares rather than regular brownie size pieces. I imagine I wouldn't need a quart of milk if they were a little thinner..I gave this recipe 4 stars because it is incredibly sweet..I only used 3 cups of confectioner's sugar in the green frosting and I really think that was too sweet, I couldn't imagine using the full 4 cups (by-the-way, I burned my hand mixer up making this recipe...LOL!). I think the next time I make these, I would probably cut the confectioner's sugar down even more! These are super delicious...time consuming, but totally worth the effort...thanks for a great recipe!
