Mint Cocoa Brownies

While I was sick last week I got a serious sweet tooth. I mean that's only natural when you can't keep regular food down right?!? Anyways, I raided my pantry to see what I could whip together with the ingredients I had and this is what I came up with. They're fudgey and delicious!

Mint Cocoa Brownies
  • 3/4 cup salted caramel hot cocoa
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup boiling water
  • 1 3/4  cups white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 12 mint truffle Hershey kisses
  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Grease and flour 9x13 inch pan.
  3. In a large bowl, stir together the cocoa and baking soda, add 1/3 c veg oil and boiling water. Mix until well blended and thickened.
  4. Stir in the sugar, eggs, and remaining 1/3 c veg oil. Mix together.
  5. Finally add the flour, vanilla, and salt. mix just until all of the flour is absorbed.
  6. Spread evenly in prepared pan. Space out Hershey kisses evenly & press down into batter.
  7. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes, or until toothpick inserted comes out clean. Allow to cool before cutting.
Next time I will probably chop the kisses up and then mix them into the batter. So you might want to try that. I just gave the recipe directly as I did it.



  1. That sounds yummy! Anything with mint and chocolate combined is delicious in my opinion!

  2. I love that combination! These sound delish!

  3. mmmm I LOVE mint and add chocolate and that is pretty much perfection in my mind. Print!
