BYU Mint Brownies are the best. And the best part is they remind me of my time at BYU. It’s been 2 years since I graduated but just 4 months since I moved away from Provo. I loved my time at BYU and miss it so much.
They sell these brownies at the creamery and at Sugar n’ Spice. My friend Linsey worked at Sugar n’ Spice all 4 years of college. She said that during weeks such as Women’s Conference and Education Week they would make way more brownies then they thought they would need and still often sell out before the week was over. People would buy boxes of these to take home to their families. It’s like having a piece of BYU to take home.
Now that you have the recipe you don’t have to go all the way to Provo to have a piece of BYU.
BYU Mint Brownies
Recipe from BYU
1/2 cup cocoa
2 Tbsp. honey
2 cups sugar
1 3/4 cup flour
1/2 Tbsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. vanilla
optional: 1 cup chopped walnuts
12 oz. chocolate icing (Use your own icing recipe or store bought chocolate frosting.)
dash of salt
3 Tbsp. milk
1 Tbsp. light corn syrup
2 1/3 cup powdered sugar
1/2 tsp. mint extract
1-2 drops green food coloringDirections:
1. Melt butter and mix in cocoa. Allow to cool. Add honey, eggs, sugar, flour, baking powder, and salt. Mix well. If using, add nuts. Pour batter into a greased 9-by-13 baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
2. Prepare mint icing: Soften butter. Add salt, corn syrup, and powdered sugar. Beat until smooth and fluffy. Add mint extract and food coloring. Mix. Add milk gradually until the consistency is a little thinner than cake frosting.
3. Spread mint icing over brownies. Place brownies in the freezer for 15 minutes to stiffen the icing. Remove from the freezer and carefully add a layer of chocolate icing.
