Recipe Idea: Gluten Free Three Layer Mint Brownies
Hi. It’s Lois in the kitchen at Recipe Idea Shop, telling you about Gluten Free Three Layer Mint Brownies. This is another of my family’s favorite holiday “cookies recipes.” Gluten Free Three Layer Mint Brownies are easy to make and very pretty when served alongside other cookies. They are rich and minty. I cut them into 2″ squares when I serve them with other cookies on a tray, and a bit larger if it it the sole dessert.
A Friend’s Recipe
I got the original Three Layer Mint Brownies recipe from a friend, Michelle Esser, in the 1980s, and I’ve been making it ever since. It is one of my daughter Erin’s favorites. In fact, when she was in elementary school, she came home one day and told me that the teacher told her she must bring a treat the next day. She told me it had to be Three Layer Mint Brownies. After I made the brownies and took them to school, I found out her teacher said nothing of the sort! Erin just wanted the brownies.
Ooops! That Was Expensive!
I also sent these brownies to Erin for Christmas one year, along with several other cookies and chocolates, and her roommate just threw the package under the Christmas tree. Erin knew I was sending cookies, but her roommate didn’t tell her the package had arrived. The dogs, however, had no problem figuring out that the package contained food and they ate everything in the box, containing about 5-8 pounds of various chocolates, necessitating two trips to the veterinarian and costing about $1,000. Even though Erin no longer has any pets, I have learned to send packages to her office.
Erin told me she thinks the Gluten Free version is even better than the original one. I think that’s because I put more chocolate in them. I sometimes make my own version of gluten free flours in this recipe, but usually I simply use Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free One-to-One Baking Flour or Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free All Purpose Baking Flour. Either option works great!
If you are not interested in making them gluten free, these can also be made with regular flour. See Three Layer Mint Brownies. You’re gonna wanna eat these.
