Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter
  • 4 ounces unsweetened chocolate, chopped
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/4 cup fresh mint leaves, I used about 8 leaves
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons bourbon

Frosting

  • 4 ounces unsweetened chocolate, chopped
  • 1 stick butter, softened
  • 3 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 3-4 tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Place 1 cup (2 sticks) butter and chopped chocolate in a medium heavy-bottomed saucepan. Heat over low heat, stirring frequently, until both butter and chocolate are melted. Set aside and let cool for about 5 minutes.
  • Combine sugar and mint in a food processor and pulse until mint is finely chopped and incorporated into the sugar.
  • Place eggs and mint sugar in a large bowl and whisk together well.
  • Gradually whisk in chocolate/ butter mixture.
  • Whisk in flour, salt, and bourbon.
  • Pour into a lightly greased 9X13-inch pan. Bake 25-28 minutes. Let cool before frosting.
  • To make frosting, melt chocolate in a small, heavy bottomed saucepan over low heat. Let cool for 5-10 minutes.
  • Using an electric mixer, beat butter and sugar together. Add 3 tablespoons milk and beat, stopping to scrape down the sides, until smooth.
  • With mixer on low, slowly add chocolate and then beat on medium until mixed well.
  • Mix in vanilla extract and salt and add an extra tablespoon of milk if frosting is too thick.
  • Spread frosting on brownies.
