More About This Recipe
  • You may have seen the terms “mint brownies” and “grasshopper brownies” used interchangeably, and although the two recipes look identical, there is, in fact, a slight ingredient difference between the two. “Grasshopper” is actually derived from the famous grasshopper cocktail made with crème de menthe, which gives the cocktail its minty taste and vibrant green color. Some mint brownie recipes will use crème de menthe in the filling, hence the name “grasshopper brownies.” To keep the booze out of your brownies, like in this chocolate-mint brownies recipe, you can use green food coloring and peppermint extract in the filling. You get the same look as grasshopper brownies, but with a family-friendly taste that the kiddos will love. There are endless twists you can put on brownies that go beyond mint.
