I wanted something special to take to a church potluck, so I invented these layered treats. They are great for St. Patrick's Day as well. The brownies are topped with a mint-flavored mousse and bittersweet chocolate icing. —Lori Risdal, Sioux City, Iowa

Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter, cubed
  • 4 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup (6 ounces) dark chocolate chips or semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • FILLING:
  • 4 ounces white baking chocolate, chopped
  • 1/4 cup refrigerated Irish creme nondairy creamer
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 15 mint Andes candies, chopped
  • ICING:
  • 12 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • Mint Andes candies, halved, optional

Directions

  1. In a microwave, melt butter and bittersweet chocolate; stir until smooth. Cool slightly. In a large bowl, beat the eggs, sugar and vanilla. Stir in chocolate mixture. Gradually add flour until blended. Stir in chips and walnuts.
  2. Spread into a greased 13x9-in. baking pan. Bake at 350° for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean (do not overbake). Cool on a wire rack.
  3. In a microwave, melt white chocolate with creamer; stir until smooth. Transfer to a small bowl. Refrigerate for 30-40 minutes or until chilled.
  4. In another small bowl, beat cream until soft peaks form; fold into white chocolate mixture. Beat on medium speed until stiff peaks form, about 4 minutes. Fold in chopped candies. Spread over brownies. Cover and refrigerate.
  5. In a small saucepan, combine bittersweet chocolate and cream. Cook and stir over low heat until chocolate is melted and smooth; remove from the heat. Stir in butter until melted. Cool to room temperature. Carefully spread over filling. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour or until icing is set. Cut into bars. Garnish with additional candies if desired. Store in the refrigerator.
