How to catch a Leprechaun: Make these delicious Chocolate Chip Mint Brookies. Place on a plate. Sit back and watch the leprechauns unable to resist these yummy St. Patrick’s Day treats.
Our recipe this week is a mash up of two great recipes with a little bit of our own twist to bring you these delightful fun brookies. What is a brookie? A brookie is just like it sounds – half brownie and half cookie.
To make these treats we used a brownie recipe that we found with another set of brookie directions. You need to make sure that the brownie dough is thick enough that you can place it on the cookie sheet with the cookie dough without running amuck. This recipe worked well, and we added a little bit of Branca Menta to the brownie recipe to give the brownies a slight minty flavor. The cookie recipe that we used is a favorite cookie recipe in The Blind Pig Blog household. Then we added a bit of green food coloring to get in the Irish spirit for March 17. The result was a match made under a shamrock!
The double flavors of the minty brownie with the chocolate chip cookie is a minty chocolaty goodness in your mouth that is sure to please any leprechaun around!
