This green-themed dessert is the perfect way to cap off our St. Patrick’s Day celebrations!

Today is St. Patrick’s Day!  While many of us may have already done our parts by donning our best green outfits and perhaps enjoying a pint or two of green beer, we can take our celebrations one step further.  Let’s cap off this fun holiday with a green dessert that everyone will enjoy.

Mint Chocolate Chip Brownies

Serves: 16


  • Cooking spray
  • One box brownie mix, plus ingredients called for on the box
  • 28 Andes candies, plus more for garnish
  • ½ cup butter, softened
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • ½ tsp. mint extract
  • 3 tbsp. milk
  • 6 drops green food coloring
  • ½ cup mini chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line an 8-inch x-8-inch pan with parchment paper and grease with cooking spray.  Prepare brownie batter according to package instructions and pour into prepared pan.
  2. Top brownie batter with an even layer of Andes candies.
  3. Bake until a toothpick inserted into the middle of a brownie comes out with only a few moist crumbs, about 40 minutes. Let cool completely.
  4. Meanwhile, make the frosting: In a large bowl using a hand mixer, beat butter until light and fluffy. Add powdered sugar, mint extract, milk and a few drops of food coloring.  Beat until smooth, then fold in mini chocolate chips.
  5. Spread frosting in an even, thick layer over cooled brownies. Slice into squares and top with chopped Andes candies.
