My all-time go-to brownie recipe is my mint brownie recipe. I've been wondering if there's a brownie equal to it so have tried a few new recipes but I don't think there's an equal to be had. There's just something about chocolate and mint- you can't go wrong. I gave this brownie a shot and served it with homemade vanilla ice cream and although it's not a layered mint brownie, it was a hit and I'd serve it again at a dinner party. Two guests had seconds and I love to dish seconds!!
truffle brownies (adapted from Buttercream Bakehouse)
1 box brownie mix, prepared in two 9x9 square pans lined with foil
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, room temperature
Once you have prepared your brownies according to package directions, you are ready to make the truffle topping. (*NOTE: this will make enough truffle topping for one of your pans of brownies. You can either eat the other pan plain or double the topping and spread it over both pans of brownies)
Place your cream cheese in a mixer bowl and beat until creamy. Melt the chocolate chips in a double boiler until melted. Add to the cream cheese and mix until completely combined. Spread in an even layer over the brownies. Place in the refrigerator to completely cool before cutting. Store in an airtight container in refrigerator.
