Try it yourself.
- 8 oz. unsalted butter; more for greasing the pan
- 10 oz. unsweetened chocolate
- 2 tsp. magic tea peppermint tea leaves
- 2 cups granulated sugar
- 4 large eggs
- 2 tsp. peppermint extract
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 4-1/2 oz. (1 cup) all-purpose flour
- Line a baking tray with baking paper and turn the oven on to about 180 deg
- Put about 2 inches of water in a small pot and heat to a gentle simmer. In a heatproof bowl set over the water, melt 8 oz. of the butter and 8 oz. of the unsweetened chocolate. Be sure that the water is hot but not boiling and that it doesn’t touch the bottom of the bowl. Stir occasionally with a heatproof spatula until the mixture is completely melted and uniform. Turn off the heat, but leave the bowl over the water.
- Finely grind the peppermint leaves with the sugar. In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, peppermint extract, salt, and peppermint sugar until just combined. Whisk in the melted chocolate mixture (reserve the pot of water for later). Slowly add the flour, gently folding it in with a spatula, until incorporated.
- Spread the batter into the prepared pan and bake for about 35 to 40 minutes.
- Once cooked through, remove from oven and let cool. Lift the paper lining to pull the brownies out of the pan. Peel the paper off the brownies and put them on a cutting board.
- 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
- 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup (125g) confectioners sugar
- 3 tablespoons whole milk, or heavy cream
In a stand mixer with the whisk attachment (a hand mixer works excellently here), combine room temperature butter, cocoa, honey, vanilla, and confectioners sugar.
Turn mixer on low and let it combine ingredients for about 30 seconds.
Slowly add milk, one tablespoon at a time, until you reach desired consistency. You may not need all 3 tablespoons, you may need 1 more, it can vary from season to season and kitchen to kitchen.
Spread over warm brownies.
