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!
