One rainy day, with nothing on hand but a box of brownie mix, I decided to experiment..the result this easy yummy torte! People will think you spent hours creating this beautiful 4 layer torte, but really ou only spent 1. The thick brownie contrasts beautifully with the mint whipped filling making a perfect dessert!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (21 ounce) boxplain chocolate brownie mix (or extra chewy if desired)
  • 1 egg (as directed on brownie mix)

  • 13 cup oil (as directed on brownie mix)
  • 12 pint heavy whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 tablespoons confectioners' sugar (plus more to taste)
  • 2 teaspoons peppermint extract (plus more to taste) (optional)

Directions

  1. Prepare brownies according to box, however pour the mix into two round 8 by 8 cake pans. Make sure you grease the pans, and bake according to box. (Use the time that is on the box for the 8 by 8 pans) The mix isn't supposed to fill the pans completely, just about halfway.
  2. After taking out the brownies, and letting them cool completely, you can start the whipped filling. Begin by setting a large bowl and the beaters into your freezer for a couple of minutes.
  3. Pour heavy cream into the chilled bowl and beat on high untill it begins to thicken.
  4. Add the sugar, the vanilla, and the peppermint extract if desired. Beat the mixture untll, light and fluffy, and resembles whipped cream.
  5. Remove one brownie from pan, and set on a platter. Thickly cover it with whipped filling, then but the other brownie on top, cover that one too.
  6. Decorate top with shavened chocolate or mint leaves.
  7. ENJOY!
