For the Brownie Layer:

  • Granulated sugar: 2 1/2 cups
  • Unsweetened cocoa powder: 1 3/4 cups
  • Salt: 1 tsp
  • Vanilla extract: 1 tsp
  • Mint extract: 1/2 tsp
  • Large eggs: 4
  • All-purpose flour: 1 cup

For the Mint Chocolate Chip Mousse:

  • White chocolate chips: 1/2 cup
  • Heavy cream: 2 cups (divided)
  • Salt: a pinch
  • Peppermint extract
  • Green food coloring
  • Yellow food coloring
  • Finely chopped semi-sweet chocolate: 1/2 cup

For the Chocolate Glaze:

  • Chopped semi-sweet chocolate
  • Heavy cream


  1. Prepare the Brownie Base:
    • Preheat your oven to 350°F (177°C). Line and grease a 9×13-inch baking pan.
    • In a saucepan, melt the butter with sugar, cocoa, and salt. Allow the mixture to cool slightly before mixing in the vanilla and mint extracts.
    • Beat in eggs one at a time, then gently fold in the flour. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 25-28 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Allow to cool completely.
  2. Mint Chocolate Chip Mousse:
    • Melt the white chocolate with 3/4 cup of cream; set aside to cool.
    • In a separate bowl, whip the remaining cream until it forms peaks.
    • Stir in a pinch of salt, peppermint extract, and food coloring into the cooled chocolate mixture.
    • Fold the whipped cream and chopped chocolate into the chocolate mix gently to keep the mousse light and airy.
    • Spread the mousse over the cooled brownies.
  3. Prepare the Chocolate Glaze:
    • Heat the cream and pour it over the chopped chocolate, stirring until smooth.
    • Pour the glaze over the mousse layer, spreading it to cover entirely.
  4. Chill and Serve:
    • Refrigerate the brownies for at least 3 hours or until the mousse sets completely.
    • Cut into squares and serve, optionally garnished with more green candies for an extra pop of color.

Prep Time: 1 hour
Chill Time: 3+ hours
Total Time: 4+ hours


  • Ensure all components, especially the eggs and cream, are at room temperature to ensure even mixing and the smoothest texture.
  • The brownie base can be prepared a day in advance to simplify the process.
  • Use high-quality cocoa powder and chocolate for the best flavor and richness.

These Mint Chocolate Chip Mousse Brownies blend the refreshing zest of mint with the indulgence of chocolate in a show-stopping dessert that’s perfect for any celebration or as a treat to brighten any day.
