Mint Chocolate Brownie Cookies

Mint and chocolate are a match made in heaven! I love the combination in baking! I don't love the combination in ice cream, let that be known! Haha! These Mint Chocolate Brownie Cookies are seriously so good! They are easy too! I love taking a box mix, stepping it up a notch, enhancing it with a delicious frosting, and making it into a homemade delight! That's right, these brownie cookies start from a box mix! It doesn't get any easy than that! And the bright mint color makes this recipe a perfect one to share on St Patrick's Day! Make it with me!

These brownie cookies are delicious, chewy, and soft! Then, topped with a yummy Whipped Mint Buttercream Frosting and a little chocolate drizzle, you seriously cannot go wrong! These are a new favorite dessert at my house and I think they will quickly become your favorite too!

The Buttercream in this recipe is super easy to make! If you have a stand mixer or hand mixer, I suggest using it! I throw everything into my Kitchenaid, turn in on low until everything starts incorporating, then I turn that baby up to high and let it work its magic! When you beat a buttercream like this on high, it really makes it lite and fluffy! It whips out all of the air bubbles, leaving you with a creamy, light frosting! And because it is a buttercream, you know that it is going to taste amazing!
