We simply devoured these brownies. In fact we couldn’t stay out of them. They’re addictive. I feel confident this is a recipe your family will love and you’ll make over and over.
- Salt: Use Kosher salt. Most chefs agree that sea salt doesn’t penetrate and flavor the food like Kosher salt does. Save sea salt to season at the table.
- Walnuts: Or pecans.
- Butter: Unsalted butter works best here.
- Flour: All purpose flour.
- Sugar: Granulated sugar.
- Eggs: Large eggs,
- Hershey’s Syrup: Hershey’s Chocolate Syrup brings the deep chocolate fudgy flavor and consistency to this brownie recipe.
- Powdered Sugar: (Confectioners Sugar).
- Peppermint Extract: Good food always begins with quality ingredients. I like a couple of brands for quality extracts. Nielsen-Massey and Savory Spice.
- Butter: Again, unsalted.
- Milk: Whole milk or 2% will work here. I never buy, nor have cooked with, 1% or non-fat, so can’t address if the creamy texture of the frosting would be compromised.
- Green Food Coloring; just 2 – 3 drops will do. Or, if you want a greener color, add a couple more.
Step By Step Instructions: Brownies with Hershey Syrup
- Step 1: Simply combine the ingredients for this easy brownie batter and using a mixer mix until well blended.
- Pour the batter into a greased 13 x 9 x 2 baking dish. I used my Pyrex. Bake at 325 degrees for 30 – 40 minutes, or until a cake tester comes out clean.
- In the meantime make the mint frosting.
- It’s time to frost. Spread the mint frosting over the cooled brownies and prepare the chocolate glaze.
TIP: Use an off-set spatula for all of your frosting and spreading needs. It’s famous for creating dramatic swoops and swirls or for creating a perfectly smooth surface that’s ready to decorate.
- For the chocolate glaze: Melt chocolate chips and butter stovetop until blended. Stir until smooth. Place the chocolate glaze in a catsup type squeeze bottle, and with quick sweeping motions, spread the glaze over the brownies. You can also use this glaze as a solid frosting spread.
FAQs and Tips
When making any type of brownie, always mix the batter just long enough to blend the ingredients well. Over beating brownie batter will add air and result in a more cake like texture.
As I learned in Culinary School, rotate the brownie pan half way through the baking process. This will help with a more evenly baked pan of brownies, especially when using a larger pan.
Make sure the brownies have cooled completely. Once cooled, place them in the refrigerator to insure they’re “set”. Use a sharp knife that’s been dipped in hot water. Quickly wipe the knife off and then make a slice. Repeat these steps for every single cut.
Pro Tip: Use a cake tester. As always, just keep a close eye on the brownies while they’re in the oven and use a cake tester to make sure you know when they’re done. You want that “just right” brownie texture that’s a bit fudgy gooey on the inside without being cakey. Insert the cake tester into the center of the brownies and once it come out clean, take them out of the oven.
