Fudgy (double chocolate) mint-skor brownies recipe. Quick and easy!

Rules of the ultimate brownie:

  1. Fudgy. Definitely fudgy. If you’re in the cakey brownie lovers club, you’ve come to the wrong blog post. Taa taa! Welcome back when you’ve realized the folly of your ways.  ; )
  2. Semi-sweet… or dark chocolate flavoured. None of those ‘so sweet that it sets your teeth on edge’ type brownies allowed.
  3. Minty. Because everything is better with mint. Who’s with me?
  4. Plus a touch of carmelly crunch.
  5. Not with ice cream…
  6. Fine, fine! Come back, all of you! If you like them with ice cream, go ahead. I’ll close my eyes and eat mine by myself over here without it.

In this recipe, I tried to use less sugar than average (Truth moment… I am an extremely fussy brownie eater and the super sweet ones are at the top of my ‘bleh’ list, followed by ‘cakie’… only fudgie allowed). These are a ‘dark chocolate’ flavoured brownie as a result. The greek yogurt keeps them super moist as well.

I won’t attempt to claim any health benefits here. Though there is less sugar added than an average brownie, and they have greek yogurt and white whole wheat flour, they’re definitely still a sweet dessert. A tasty one though.. 😀

The scoop on the bits…

The skor bits go 1/2 on top of the brownies prior to baking, 1/2 after the brownies come out of the oven. The ones baked on the brownie will be soft, whereas the ones sprinkled on top after baking will add a bit of crunch to your fudgy brownie.

I prefer to put 1/2 on top after baking (unlike the picture where only a few tablespoons were reserved for the top), but I give you full permission to do whatever you to want with the skor bits. Although eating them from the bag while watching the brownies bake isn’t really setting a good example of healthy eating habits…

This makes a 9×9 inch pan, which will give 16-20 brownies or 64 tiny ‘brownie bites’ that could be put onto tooth picks for very dainty dessert bites for a dress up tea party. (Oh, how cute) 😉 Serve with felt crowns and fairy wand fruit kabobs with raspberry cream cheese dip. Fit for a princess! Or a protector if your little chef is a Mr. and wants to make his kabob into a protector sword… who’s read the story?

I appear to be veering off topic. One last picture and then onward to the recipe! 🙂
