Green Mint Fudgy Brownies - SAVOIR FAIRE by enrilemoine
Green Mint Fudgy Brownies. I have a very particular relationship with my kitchen. When I’m happy, I cook and when I’m sad or anxious, I cook too. Japan’s quake, tsunami and nuclear disaster, made me think about how fragile everything is.

Green Mint Fudgy Brownies - SAVOIR FAIRE by enrilemoineBecause I was a little bit anxious and I relax in the kitchen, I decided to get creative. We harvested broccoli and I made a wonderful broccoli and pasta salad. I took the bananas ripening on my counter and baked Jamaican banana bread, picked some Meyer lemons from our tree and made the most amazing falernum.
Green Mint Fudgy Brownies - SAVOIR FAIRE by enrilemoineOn Sunday, my ‘creativity’ peaked with these green mint fudgy brownies. I’m not used to food coloring. But I have Tomás Eugenio (7) always pushing for seasonal stuff and, since St. Patrick’s Day is in a few days, I colored the cream cheese and mint batter with Irish green —not without fear, I must confess.
Green Mint Fudgy Brownies - SAVOIR FAIRE by enrilemoineThese brownies are really fudgy. I like to refrigerate them and enjoy them cold. Because they are really heavy and massive and hiper caloric, I suggest cutting them bite size.

Mint Brownies

These green mint fudge brownies are so rich and heavy an decadent, that I suggest to cut them bite-size. They are perfect as a dessert or snack, and also to say Happy St. Patrick's Day.
