Fudgy Chocolate-Mint Brownies a la Mode
- Active Time 15m
- Total Time 3h 55m
- For the Brownies:
- 3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter
- 4 ounces unsweetened chocolate
- 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips (one 6-ounce bag)
- 1 3/4 cups sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract
- 4 large eggs
- 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
- For the Glaze and Sauce:
- 1 cup whipping cream
- 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips (one 12-ounce bag)
- 1/4 teaspoon peppermint extract
Mint chip ice cream
FOR THE BROWNIES:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Butter and flour a 9-inch square metal baking pan. Stir 3/4 cup butter, unsweetened chocolate and chocolate
chips in heavy large deep saucepan over low heat until melted. Remove from heat.
Add the sugar and peppermint extract to the warm chocolate mixture in the saucepan; whisk to
blend. Whisk in the eggs 1 at a time. Add the flour; whisk to blend.
Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan. Bake until a tester inserted into center
comes out with some very thick moist batter still attached, about 30 minutes.
Cool the brownies in pan on a rack for 10 minutes. Using the back of a fork, press down on
edges of the brownie to make flat and even.
FOR THE GLAZE AND SAUCE:
Bring the cream to simmer in medium saucepan. Remove from heat. Add the chocolate chips; whisk until melted. Mix in the extract. Pour 1 cup glaze over warm brownies in pan (set aside remaining glaze in pan to use as sauce). Refrigerate
until the brownies are firm, about 3 hours.
Cut the brownies into 16 squares. Place 1 brownie on each of 6 plates. Rewarm
the remaining glaze/sauce in pan over medium heat until warm, stirring constantly.
Place a scoop of ice cream on each plate. Spoon the sauce over the ice cream and serve.
DO-AHEAD TIP: Brownies and sauce can be made 4 days ahead; cover separately; chill.
