Baking with Dorie: Brrrrrr-ownies

It's my first time baking along with Dorie, so I was really looking forward to this bake! I suppose because it contains two of my all time fav ingredients. That being.... Yes!...You guessed it! ....Chocolate and mint!


I had been looking for the mint patties, to be used in the recipe, since last week already. But wasn't successful finding them. Until last week Friday that is. I was standing in the store when a package caught my eye, and upon closer inspection, I realized that it was mint choc patties! 








Well, at least I THOUGHT they were mint choc patties. After purchasing them this evening and rushing home, I was all excited to get started! But when I unwrapped the box of chocs and broke one of them open, I soon realized that my end result wouldn't be as minty as I wanted it to be. 


Nonetheless, I went ahead with my baking! These brrrrrrownies are definitely chewy, fudgy and deliciously chocolaty! But I was missing the brrrrrrrrr in the brrrrrrrrrownies :D 


I'm definitely going to bake these again, but next time will make sure to use a minty ingredient that contained more bite! Perhaps the chewy mints that Tina used in her bake :)

  2. Aww! Sorry your brownies couldn't be as minty as promised, but I bet they were still deliciously fudgy :)
    Welcome to BWD & Thanks for baking with us this week!

  3. Welcome to the group! That packaging sure is misleading with its oozy minty middle- can you believe it? Hope you find a substitute sometime- it was a good recipe.

  4. Hey Tina,

    If the empty oven tray was anything to go by, then the family really enjoyed the brownies! I think it's just me who was disappointed because the minty taste wasn't there *wink, wink*

  5. Grapefruit, I'm looking forward to the next challenge. Hopefully you'll be lucky enough to find the mint patties on that side of the world. I know I'm not going to stop looking for a stronger minty alternative :D
