This Chocolate Thin Mint Brownies Recipe is a family classic. They are the perfect dessert to take to a party or potluck dinner because they make so many (and they are so rich that you can only handle a small brownie at a time).
I am a sucker for anything with mint and chocolate together and these didn’t disappoint.
The combination is truly a match made in heaven.
They really do taste like thin mints in brownie form, and are way more creamy and smooth.
If you are looking for a delicious and simple brownie recipe, this is one you need to try.
How To store Thin Mint Brownies:
These Chocolate Thin Mint Brownies can sit at room temperature for a few hours, but after that, we would recommend storing them in the refrigerator in an airtight container for 3-4 days.
If you are making them more than 4 days in advance, we highly recommend placing them in an airtight container (try to not stack them. You may need a few containers), and removing them from the freezer 24 hours before serving.

How to get a clean cut Thin Mint Brownie:
There are three things to know to get a perfectly clean-cut brownie.
- Cool your brownies completely before cutting (chilled in the refrigerator is even better!).
- Use a sharp knife. A lot of problems in the kitchen can be solved by using a really good knife.
- Run your knife under warm-hot water before cutting.
- Wipe your knife on a paper towel, or cutting board edge, after each cut if frosting has accumulated.
- You may need to re-heat your knife in the hot water throughout the cutting process, for best results.
