Mint Chocolate Chip Blondies are one of my favorite desserts we make for the St. Patrick’s Day holiday each year, but I also make them all summer long. They taste like my favorite flavor of ice cream, so enjoying them in the summer with a scoop of ice cream is basically heavenly!

The base of these Mint Chocolate Chip Blondies is a classic blondie recipe with added flavors in the way of the chocolate chips and mint extract. Mint Chocolate Chip Blondies that taste just like your favorite ice cream flavor in thick cookie bar form loaded with chocolate chips and a chocolate drizzle.

When it comes to the color of these Mint Chocolate Chip Blondies, I recommend starting with six drops, then mix. If the color is not what you are hoping for, add in 2 drop increments. I used exactly nine drops, but it may vary for you depending on how full your drops are.

For the drizzle topping I use a small ziploc bag that I fill with melted chocolate. Then I trim off the tiniest bit off one corner and use it to drizzle on the chocolate.

Tools Used in the making of these Mint Chocolate Chip Blondies:
Stand Mixer: One of the most beautiful things in my kitchen, the Colbalt Blue is gorgeous!
13×9 inch baking pan: Straight edges, good even baking, this pan is my go to for baking bars or cakes like my Rainbow Poke Cake
Mint Extract: Make sure you are buying “Mint” not “Peppermint” here for authentic flavors.
Gel Colors: If you prefer gel colors because you’ll use it in other recipes, these are the best I’ve found. The green is easy to add, start in very small doses. For this recipe use the Food Coloring Drops (and it may be easier to add one drop at a time as needed), I just always have gel on hand.

  1. Made these today & just put in oven. I hope they bake up ok because the dough was pretty thick. Also your instructions only say add this add this but only then say combine when flour & chips are in. No mixing until then?

  2. Chocolate and mint is always a winning combination – these are so perfect for St. Patrick’s Day!

  3. Oh my word, aren’t these just St. Patrick’s Day minty chocolatey perfection? I have a feeling these beauties would be well-loved in my house!

  4. So I’m not a huge blondie fan, BUT I love mint and chocolate, so I am guessing that’s what they taste like instead of a traditional blondie!
