I attended a 30th birthday party for a good friend last weekend.  Although the invitation said “no gifts” I couldn’t resist making my friend one of his favorite baked treats.  Gifts of food are always acceptable, right?

These brownies start out simply:  a recipe for dense, chewy brownies from the Baker’s chocolate collection.  While these brownies alone are lovely, the real magic for this recipe happens in what’s on top of the brownies.  Topped with homemade mint buttercream and a semi-sweet chocolate glaze, the combination is like a refreshing and rich “after-dinner” mint.

(Brownie recipe adapted from Baker’s)

Prepared pan

Melted unsweetened chocolate and butter

Mix in sugar

Blend in eggs and flour

Make the mint buttercream

Frost the cooled brownies

Refrigerate frosted brownies at least 1 hour

Once refrigerated, pour glaze onto frosted brownies

The brownies went over well and I think they achieved my goal of Satisfying the birthday boy’s Sweet Tooth.
