Enjoy the 4,000+ Low Carb Recipes!!!
I am going to post a couple brownie recipes that other people have sworn by (I will put who's recipes they are) You may use any brownie recipe of your choice. The mint cream layer is so so good! It only took me one try and it worked the first time... omg these taste just like the real mint brownies that my mom makes on all the holidays!
For the brownie layer you can either try Kevinpa's recipe.. He tried several and was very happy with his final try.. It has a lot of great reviews: Here
You can also make the Carb Quick Brownies but make sure you just make the brownie itself. Do not make the frosting or add nuts to the recipe. Here
Make sure you use a 8x9 or 9x9 pan... bake brownies according to brownie directions.
This recipe is my own creation.. please do not copy for the purpose of publishing or use on any other site without my expressed permission.
Brownie Layer: In the Recipe Description Mint Layer:2 - 8oz packages of cream cheese (softened) 3/4 cup splenda or sugar equivalent 3/4 teaspoon peppermint extract 3-4 drops green food coloring Low Carb Chocolate Frosting:3 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened (not melted) 5 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder 1 cup pourable splenda (or other sugar substitute of your choice equaling a cup of sugar) 1/3 cup heavy cream or half and half 1 teaspoon vanilla extract Few drops hot water, as needed, to thin
How To Prepare:
Mint Layer: Put the cream cheese into a bowl and microwave for 10-15 seconds so it is very soft. Add in the splenda and stir until well mixed. Add the peppermint extract and food coloring. Put it back into the refrigerator for about 10-15 minutes to thicken back up but can still be spread over the brownie layer.Chocolate Frosting: Place all ingredients in a medium bowl and whisk until well combined. Use to frost brownies, but make sure brownies are completely cooled, or the butter in the frosting will melt. Pour over the mint layer. Refrigerate overnight and then slice in small squares. These are very rich so you do not want to eat a lot at once because it is so filling! (again, I will be posting the carb content a little later but it is going to depend on which brownie recipe you are using and how big of slices you cut)
