My very first book, The Minecrafter’s Cookbook comes out on November 27th, and to celebrate, I’m sharing some recipes from the book for the next few weeks!
The book is for kids and families that want to learn how to cook the items they see in Minecraft. There are recipes for all of the food items you see, including steak, salmon, porkchops, baked potatoes, and more, and there are plenty of fun recipes to make food that looks like your favorite non-edible items. This is one of those. This delicious brownie recipe includes semi-sweet and milk chocolate chips and is topped with some bright green frosting. They look like the grass blocks you find everywhere in the game. Not a frosting fan? Keep it off for some more simple dirt block brownies. Whether or not you’re a Minecraft fan, I can guarantee you’ll enjoy these treats!

- 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- ½ cup unsalted butter
- 1 cup sugar
- 3 eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1¼ cups flour
- ½ tsp salt
- ¼ tsp baking soda
- 1 cup milk chocolate chips
- 1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
- 2 cups powdered sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla
- ⅛ tsp salt
- Green food coloring
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- Grease a 9 inch square baking pan.
- Melt the semi-sweet chocolate chips and butter in a large sauce pan over low heat. Stir until smooth and then remove from heat. Let cool for 2 minutes.
- Stir the sugar into the chocolate butter mixture.
- Add the eggs to the mixture one at a time, stirring between each egg.
- Stir in the vanilla.
- Mix the flour, salt, and baking soda in a small bowl. Add the dry mixture to the wet mixture and mix gently.
- Stir in the milk chocolate chips.
- Pour the brownie batter into the greased baking pan.
- Bake for 45-50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out mostly clean (just a few crumbs).
- Cool in the pan for 30 minutes.
- While cooling, make the frosting: beat 1 cup of unsalted butter in a mixer until light and fluffy. Slowly add the powdered sugar, ½ cup at a time, mixing fully each time. Add the salt and vanilla, and mix for 2 minutes or until everything is light, fluffy, and the texture of a thick buttercream frosting. Add a few drops of green food coloring and mix until the color is even. Add more food coloring until you get the color of green you wish.
- Place the frosting into a piping bag with a grass or star-shaped pastry tip on the bottom. Pipe the frosting onto the top of the brownies. (Don't have pastry tips? You can also frost the brownies with a butter knife or spatula!)
- Slice the brownies into square shapes and enjoy!
