Brownies are one of those treats in life that you don’t need to make from scratch. Boxed brownies taste just as good as homemade (dare I say, sometimes even better?), gluten-free boxed mixes included! This Andes boxed brownie hack is a huge hit, I make these all the time and they always get snapped up quickly. Plus, they taste like a certain cookie that comes out but once a year (ahem, they’re ‘minty thin!’) If you’re looking for the holiday party treat, these gluten free ‘minty thin’ brownies are a seasonal favorite! They’re quick and easy to whip up whenever you need a yummy treat, so you don’t need to spend hours making them– because this time of year ain’t nobody got time for that.

The secret ingredient here are the Andes Creme de Menthe chocolate mint baking chips which can usually be found around the holidays but are tough to find off-season. In fact, whenever I see them in the store I’ll grab a few bags to stock up because I use them in lots of gluten-free baking recipes. If you can’t find them, the regular mints work… however, the chips just melt a bit easier.

Ingredients:

1 boxed brownie mix (gluten free works!)

1 bag Andes Creme de Menthe chocolate mint baking chips

2 drops Young Living peppermint essential oil (optional)

Directions:

Step 1: Preheat oven (check the box for correct temperature) and line pan with parchment paper.

Step 2: In a medium-sized bowl, make boxed brownie mix according to package directions. Add in two drops of Young Living peppermint essential oil if desired and stir. Pour into baking pan.

Step 3: Bake according to directions. While the brownies bake, open the bag of Andes baking chips (if using the actual wrapped mints, unwrap them now.)

Step 4: When fully baked, remove brownies from the oven and place pan on a heat-proof surface. Immediately sprinkle the Andes chips over the entire surface of the brownies (or place mints evenly over surface.) Let them melt for 5 minutes until they melt completely. Carefully spread with a knife if needed.

Step 5: Using a toothpick, swirl the melted chocolate back and forth to make a pretty pattern and allow the green to show. It should look something like this:

My kids actually call them thin mint brownies… even though they don’t actually contain Thin Mints. 😉
