Sugar Free Mint Chocolate Chip Brownies
Sugar Free Mint Chocolate Chip Brownies, a delicious minty and fudgy dessert recipe idea that has no added sugar. A sugar free version of the popular grasshopper brownie.
Preheat your oven to 350 and prep a baking dish for nonstick .
In a medium mixing bowl, use a fork or whisk to blend together the flour, salt, and unsweetened cocoa powder. Set this bowl aside.
Melt one half of the chocolate chips (½ cup) either using the double boiler method or in an a microwave using a microwave safe bowl ( Microwave for one minute or until melted stopping every 15 seconds to stir. ) Set this aside.
Now in a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter with the brown sugar alternative. Then beat in the flour mixture and then the eggs and the extracts. Gently stir in the melted chocolate.
Lastly, fold in the remaining chocolate chips and transfer to the prepped baking dish. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out mostly clean when tested in several different locations. Tip: rotate the baking dish after the first ten minutes of baking and bake in the center of the oven for a more even baking. Allow the brownies to fully cool before adding the frosting. Top with additional chocolate chips as desired.
Nutritional information does not include the frosting that you use.
I mentioned that this is a two layer recipe. The bottom layer is a minty brownie and the top layer is a minty frosting.
Also mentioned, this recipe gets its minty flavor from mint extract.
To make this more of a "grasshopper" brownie, you can sub in actual Crème de menthe liqueur. Keep in mind that it can also contain sugar in it.
