Are you a mint chocolate fan? Or Peanut Butter & Chocolate fan? For myself, mint all the way… unless there’s strawberries involved, then its a toss up, but that’s for another day. Scotty has always been a peanut butter fan, however, I think I’ve wrangled him over to my side.
I mean what’s better than mint, and chocolate? It’s refreshing, it’s cool, it’s chocolatey, you can’t go wrong.
With that being said, it’s a really good thing I made these for some great friends as a thank you for letting us use their baby gear; jolly jumper, high chair, etc. Otherwise, lets just say they wouldn’t have lasted long in our house.
1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup butter
1 cup cocoa
2 cups sugar
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
*1 cup mint chocolate chips or 1 cup reese peanut butter chips (or split the batter in half and do 1/2 cup each)
Stir together flour, baking powder and salt in a small bowl.
Melt butter in a large saucepan.
Remove from heat.
Stir in cocoa.
Blend in sugar, eggs and vanilla.
Blend in dry ingredients and mint chocolate chips.
Pour batter into greased 13x9x2-inch rectangular baking pan.
Bake in preheated 350F oven 30 to 35 minutes or until edges start to become a little crispy and a toothpick inserted into center comes out clean.
Let cool and cut into squares
* You can basically substitute anything here; chopped walnuts, toasted hazelnuts, chocolate chips, etc
