Mint Truffle Brownies. If that doesn’t say Christmas treat then I don’t know what does. With a layer of mint truffle kisses sandwiched in between layers of fudgy brownies and topped with chocolate buttercream, trust me when I say you’re gonna want to make this brownie recipe, friends.
When it comes to dessert, brownies are probably one of my all time favorites. They are right there holding onto the top spot with cheesecake. There is just something about the chocolate deliciousness of a perfectly chewy brownie that gets me every single time.
However, when you take that same decadent, chewy, chocolatey brownie and slather it in a rich chocolate buttercream frosting, it is absolute pure brownie bliss.
The first time I remember trying a brownie with frosting was when my mother-in-law made a batch. At that time, I had no idea brownies with frosting were even a thing. Brownies with ice cream, yes, totally. Brownies with frosting? Never heard of it.
But guys, it so needs to be a thing.
Brownies with buttercream frosting would’ve been delicious all on their own. However, it is Christmas time, so I had to take advantage of all of that wonderful Christmas candy. Like my fave, Mint Truffle Hershey Kisses. Then I sandwiched them right in the center of the brownies.
So if you’re keeping track, these Mint Truffle Brownies have a layer of brownie, layer or mint truffle kisses, layer of brownie and layer of chocolate buttercream.
Like I said, pure brownie bliss.
Not a mint fan? You could easily do this with other Christmas candies too. I actually used the same technique back when I made these Killer Brownies for Halloween. Those brownies are topped with ganache, which should also totally be a thing.

Yes! I love brownies with frosting. I first had one at a bakery in Cape Cod. So tasty. And this is my favorite flavor combination.
