Aero Mint Chocolate Brownies; intensely fudgy and chocolatey brownies made with three kinds of chocolate and the flavour of fresh mint, studded with everyone’s favourite bubbly bar!
Blue Monday, the “worst day of the year” we’re told. Either that or another marketing opportunity to sell you stuff, or shove free Aero Mint Chocolate Brownies recipes in your face? Nah, not my style…
Irrespective of the date, I thrust upon you this incredibly delicious recipe that you will most definitely need to eat more than 1/16th of.
In my ongoing quest to berate the January diet trend, I give you another wonderful brownie recipe. Dense, fudgy, deeply chocolatey and rich enough to banish all other brownies from your memory, I could allow for nothing less. These brownies are made with refined flour, refined sugar, butter and chocolate with less than 70% cocoa, and guess what? No one died, they tasted delicious, and the world kept on turning! Don’t fear food or buy into the health trends, lovely readers, someone gets paid big bucks when you do! Eat. What. You. Want.
Unlike past brownie recipes, this one has been jazzed up with a little fresh mint flavour, making these velvety soft brownies rich and refreshing at the same time. Of course, it only felt right to throw some chunks of something in there, I feel I’m not posh enough for After Eights, so the classic Aero Mint bar did the trick just fine! The vibrant green of the Aero bar survives the onslaught of the oven, leaving a lovely burst of colour on the surface of these darkly tempting treats. The “clean eating” brigade want you to eat more green food? Done.
I first made these brownies a few months ago to test out on my workmates, and as I’d hoped, they went down very well. I hope if you try them out that you’ll have the same success, and enjoy the unadulterated pleasure that these Aero Mint Chocolate Brownies bestow on us mere humans!
To make these minty little beauties, you’ll need to start by preheating your oven.
You’ll then need to grease and line a tin to bake the brownies in, both 8×8 or 8×12 inch tins have worked well for me.
Chop up some butter and dark/milk chocolate and melt together gently in a heatproof bowl either in the microwave or over a pan of simmering water until smooth.
While the chocolate and butter melt, weigh some flour and cocoa powder into a small bowl and mix together.
