Fudgy Mint Squares

Corrie and I made these for a potluck. I’d have to rate them 10 stars out of 10! Pretty much irresistible.

Fudgy Mint Squares

Brownies:

8 T. butter

3 squares (1 ounce each) unsweetened chocolate, chopped or 1/2 cup cocoa powder

2 eggs

1 1/2 cups sugar

2 tsp. vanilla extract

1 cup flour

Mint Filling:

1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened

2 T. butter, softened

1 T. cornstarch

1 egg

1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk

1 tsp. peppermint extract

4 drops green food coloring, optional

Glaze:

1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

1/2 cup whipping cream or milk

In a microwave-safe bowl, melt butter and unsweetened chocolate; cool slightly. In a mixing bowl, beat eggs, sugar, and vanilla. Add the chocolate mixture; mix until blended. Gradually beat in the flour. Spread into a greased 9×13-inch pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until top is set.

In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese and butter. Add cornstarch; beat until smooth. Gradually beat in milk and egg. Add extract and food coloring (if desired). Pour over crust. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until center is almost set. Cool on a wire rack.

In a heavy saucepan, combine chocolate chips and cream. Cook and stir over medium heat until chips are melted. Cool for 30 minutes or until lukewarm, stirring occasionally. Pour over cream cheese layer. Chill for 2 hours or until set before cutting.  Yield: about 4 dozen

    Hi! I’m from Argentina. Love your site. I have a silly question…what does the T in your ingredients list stands for? is not teaspoon I assume.
    Thank you!!!

    “T” stands for a tablespoon – the same as three teaspoons. Sorry for the confusion, and thanks for stopping by! God Bless! Rachel
