Mint Chocolate Brownies

I made Mint Chocolate Brownies tonight at my sister's apartment (she had an 8x8 pan..... How did we not have one of those??). I was mixing in sugar, chocolate, and butter and having a grand time. Then I had to wait.... 45 minutes! 

How is a gal supposed to pass that amount of time while waiting for amazing smelling brownies to bake? Oh, that's right. Eat the batter. While she's pigging out, why not take a few photos? We also watched 10th Kingdom while waiting for these puppies. Oh yes. I felt like a child all over again! What more could you ask for during the finals week of your last semester as an undergraduate?

These were the final product! You can see the Peppermint Patties poking out from each brownie and boy are they delicious! I think I'll be sharing with my department tomorrow when I go in to take my last final. Maybe that'll sweeten up the professors! Hah, we'll be lucky if these brownies last that long actually. 

I used this recipe to make the brownies. If you like your brownies fudgey then do them at 45 minutes but if you'd rather them be a little firmer then definitely go for the full 55 minutes. 

If you like mint and chocolate this recipe gets a full five stars

Pull them out at your next dinner night with friends and they'll be a hit for sure.

Thanks for your comment :) Fall in America sounds so fun, in Australia it's much different. We don't have any of those cool traditions you guys have, which is a shame. We are definitely summer/spring people here, because for us summer means Christmas and holidays!

Oooh...those sound SO yummy! Will have to try to bake them soon!

Thank you so much for sharing your story in a comment on my blog. It's so nice to know that other people my age have gone through some of the same struggles that I have. Your words mean a lot to me. ♥

mint and chocolate together is one of my favourite combinations, just after peanut butter and chocolate!
