Dorie’s Brrrrrownies have been a must make for a while now, they are a brownie batter with mint patties floded through before baking. In the UK mint patties have to come overseas, so it took me a little while to source them, and receive them. I did though and have now ordered more, because I will have to make these again! They were gooey, a little chewy, chocolate and oh so minty. Another great Dorie Recipe! It comes from Dorie Greenspan’s Baking From My Home To Yours. I found them very addictive, and they got the thumbs up from an American gentleman at hubby’s work – which I thought was a good thing =)
44. Chocolate Mint Cookies
Should minty brownies not be your thing here is the second - chocolate mint cookies from Nigella Lawson’s Nigella Express. These are a more a subtle dainty minty mouthful. Chocolate cookies with the mint in the icing. I may have to add a little more peppermint extract to the icing next time. They were a pretty cookie, even though they are all brown, with the drizzle of icing over the tops. Nigella suggested them for after dinner, we just had them in the afternoon with tea and coffee.
For anyone who has Nigella Express, I made the White Chocolate and Mint Mousse, I make a lot of different mousses (mice? lol) and hubby declared it as the very best mousse yet. No picture, unfortunately, but worth a mention for sure the recipes is here.
For anyone who didn’t know before Christmas I was doing a Nigella Blogging project to cook 40 recipes from Nigella Express, I’m actually up to about 70 something, but I wasn’t taking pictures during my break, so I’ll just carry on numbering the ones that have pictures.
Also for any new visitors no recipes here as, everyone should have Baking! and because Nigella Express is an ongoing project I couldn’t post half the book in recipes, and this wasn’t one I could find a link to!
