3/4cupunsweetened cocoa powder
2/3cupunsalted buttermelted and divided
1 and 1/3cupsall-purpose flour
110 ounce packagemint chocolate baking chips (if you cannot find these, feel free to substitute with regular chocolate chips and add 1 teaspoon of peppermint extract to your batter)
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Generously grease or line a 9"x13" baking pan and set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk together the cocoa powder and baking soda.
Add in half (1/3 cup) of the melted butter and mix until well blended. Add in the boiling water and mix until everything is smooth and uniform.
Add in the sugar and eggs and mix until well blended. Fold in the flour, peppermint extract, vanilla, and salt until no dry streaks remain and the batter is lump-free. Fold in the chocolate chips.
Bake in your preheated oven for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Allow to cool completely before serving. If desired, you can top your brownies with a simple glaze by mixing about a cup of powdered sugar with 1-2 Tablespoons of milk and food coloring.
Brownies should be stored in an airtight container at room temperature or in the refrigerator and will keep for several days.Source: Barely adapted from Hershey's
