Brownies are an iconic chocolate dessert that we’ve been enjoying since the late 1800s. But that also means that they are ready for an update. Here are some unique twists on the basic brownie to help spice up your next picnic or potluck. While these recipes include my favorite “one-bowl brownie” recipe, you can use a box brownie mix instead to make things easier. Enjoy!

Mint Chocolate

A classic flavor pairing! The refreshing mint filling balances the fudginess of the brownies and helps keep them from being overly rich. While some mint frosting borders on tasting like toothpaste, this mint frosting has just the right amount of mint flavoring.
