GRINCH BROWNIES

Grinch Brownies are anything but “grinchy.” They’re a mix of rich chocolate and mint that are guaranteed to make any Grinch’s heart grow at least three sizes.

Ingredients:

  • 1 9 x13 boxes of brownie mix
  • 26 Mint Oreo cookies chopped
  • 2 C white chocolate chips
  • 1/2 C heavy cream
  • 1/4 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • 4 drops of leaf green food coloring
  • red hots candies

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Line a 9×13 baking dish with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • Prepare the brownie mix according to the directions on the package.
  • Chop 16 Oreo cookies into quarters and mix them into the brownie batter.
  • Chop the remaining Oreo cookies into quarters putting them into another bowl. Set aside.
  • Spread the batter evenly in the pan.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes.
  • Check the brownies to see if they are completely cooked.
  • Once baked, put the baking pan on a wire rack allowing the brownies to cool.
  • Bring a saucepan filled with water to simmer.
  • Put a heat-safe bowl on top of the pot of simmering water.
  • Pour the white chocolate and heavy cream in the bowl. Stir constantly until melted. Take white chocolate chips and heavy cream mixture in the bowl off the heat.
  • Stir in the peppermint extract.
  • Now add a few drops of green food coloring. Stir well to combine. (You can add more mint extract, up to 1/2 teaspoon.)
  • Quickly pour the ganache on top of the brownies.
  • Sprinkle the remaining chopped Oreos on top of the ganache. Sprinkle on the red candies.
  • Chill the brownies, allowing the ganache to set for at least an hour.
  • Cut the brownies into bars.
