Mint Brownies Recipe

mint_brownies_1
Here is the perfect recipe for mint lovers, mint brownies. These brownies are a fantastic combination and mint and chocolate. The brownies get most of their flavor from baking chocolate and the frosting gets a lot of flavor from the mint extract. Be aware that peppermint extract is very strong, so if you don’t want a strong mint flavor I would add less than the recipe calls for. If you do not like mint, this recipe is not for you. This is a very simple, quick, and delicious brownie recipe. If you want you can top off these brownies with chocolate chips. Enjoy. PS- I know I haven’t updated this website in awhile… I am hoping to be able to get back to a regular posting schedule. Thanks.

    I made these brownies a few weeks ago, and they were delicious, if a bit too rich for me.

    More importantly, I randomly stumbled upon this site while searching for mint brownies, and the picture looked so delicious that I made them. I then began poking around this site, and have since made several of your dishes, which are excellent. I am currently eating your General Tso’s chicken ;)
