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!
CRAZY, MAD GOOD ! I usually don't rate recipes...however this dessert warrants rating... AWESOME ! Yes, I'm a guy...that cooks...and has done the Fire Station competitive cooking gigs with my fellow firefighters for over 25 years...and THIS DESSERT IS CRAZY, MAD GOOD...and when I prepared this browie for friends and loved ones, after a cautious sampling these super rich and multi-flavored brownies are GONE!
To tell you the truth...I truly do not understand why various reviewers are having issues with preparing this dessert. I followed the instructions that Cher provided to the tee...as I always do with recipes I find just find to have a starting point from which to make my own changes later on... and I had zero issues; and it comes out great each time.
There are a couple of suggestions that I will make for your consideration: The middle mint layer...I prefer a thicker layer as the instructions will only make for a thin layer...I make about 20% more. Then the top layer...My first attempt to melt the butter with the chocolate as directed resulted in scorched butter as it melts far faster than the chocolate melted...put the butter in when the chocolate is 1/2 melted. Lastly, halve the vanilla in the top layer...unless you REALLY like how it makes the layer taste. I found 1 Tbs of vanilla very over powering...
Change the flavoring extract and food coloring to make this WOW dessert work for any occasion...even a Fire Station Dessert Cook Off... lol... Enjoy...
