If you want the Brownie Mint Cookies to be round like the ones pictured you can roll out the cookie dough and cut out cookies in a circle shape with a circle cookie cutter.  Or…you can make them into traditional Brownies by doubling the recipe and then spreading the dough into a greased 9×13 pan.  You will just need to increase the baking time to 22-24 minutes.  You can also just drop the cookie dough into round balls on the cookie sheet if you are pressed for time.

Amazing Chocolate Layer Cake

My oldest daughter LOVES chocolate…just like her Mama…she is a smart girl!  For her birthday this year…which was a few months ago, she requested a BIG chocolate cake made with our favorite Chocolate Cake Recipe.  I decided to change it up a bit and make it into a Chocolate Layer Cake.

I simply took our Chocolate Cake Recipe and split it into three 8 inch rounds instead of baking it in the regular 9×13 pan.   And of course we used our favorite Chocolate Frosting Recipe, which I also shared with you on the Peanut Butter Fingers.

For the filling we just used our favorite Vanilla Frosting Recipe that I will also share with you…or you could just use more of the Chocolate Frosting between the layers of chocolate cake.

  • 1/2 cup Butter melted in saucepan
  • 4 Tbsp. Cocoa
  • 6 Tbsp. Milk
  • 3-4 cups Powdered Sugar

  3. Pour into greased and floured pans. Three 8 inch pans or a 9x13 pan.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes for the round pans or (55-60 minutes for a 9x13) pan until a toothpick inserted into the middle of the cake comes out clean.

For the Vanilla Frosting, I used the recipe below.  I like it!

Vanilla Frosting:

  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/3 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • 2-3 Tbsp. milk

Mix powdered sugar and unsalted butter with electric mixer (low speed). Mix in vanilla and gradually add milk. If frosting is too thin, add more powdered sugar. If too thick, add a bit more milk, one tablespoon at a time while mixing. Add paste food coloring with toothpick until desired color is achieved.

Birthday-cakes

When I use that Vanilla Frosting to frost an entire cake I will double it.  But just to make the filling on the tops of two chocolate rounds this should be plenty.  Notice how I used thin layers of frosting.  I didn’t want there to be too much frosting.  But…if you are a fan of lots of frosting…go nuts!  Now go and enjoy your day…and eat some chocolate for me!

Do you have something to say? xo
