With St. Patty’s Day is just around the corner I thought I’d share one of my all time favorite desserts. TO DIE FOR thin mint brownies. These are a chocolate lovers favorite! Seriously you gotta try these mint brownies. They’re perfect for a get together because you DO NOT want the whole pan sitting around. Trust me! These have girl scout thin mints (or mint OREOS) in the batter, a layer of mint frosting and topped with a chocolate ganache and andes mints! These are also the perfect treat to make for Chrsitmas. You could even do a red food coloring for the frosting and add crushed candy canes on top.

  7. Ok, so I’ve read this recipe like 10 times. Where does the evaporated milk come in? I’m assuming in the peppermint icing, but just wanted to check. It sounds delicious!

    These look amazing! I love thin mints.

  9. I am making this recipe right now and so far, so good. I had to substitute Mint Oreos for Thin Mints so I hope it still turns out great. Just a couple little things I noticed about the recipe: the ingredients list includes evaporated milk, but the directions do not. I used it in the mint layer. Also, the brownies are not ready in I hour 5 minutes since they have to sit for 2 hours between the different layers. The recipe seems great overall and I’m looking forward to trying them! Thanks!

  10. Made these for the fam this weekend and they were DEVOURED. Everyone loved them. Thanks for the recipe!

  15. I hope I’m not missing something obvious, but I don’t see a recipe anywhere, only pictures that tease and taunt me. PLEASE give me this recipe. I MUST have it!!!!! Thanks!

  16. Is it me or is the recipe gone?! I’ve looked and don’t see it ANYWHERE on this post…. Am I just having a blonde moment or what?

  17. I love brownies a lot , they are irresistible. All your recipes are totally superb. Keep updating your blog with such awesome stuff, I am a frequent visitor.

  19. I thought I was going crazy until I saw the few other comments – where is the recipe??? Chocolate and mint are my all time favorite treat. Ever.

  20. Excuse my ignorance, what’s TB?

  21. These look amazing!! Next time I’m having a girls night (or feeling extra fat? lol) I will have to make these….omg…

  22. Love this, cant wait to taste it.. Thanks

  23. These received so many compliments. I made enough for a 9×13 and had some left over. I froze them individually so I could have a little treat whenever I wanted without feeling like I had to eat the whole pan before they went bad. I must say, they are sooooo much better when you warm them up and the toppings are all melty!!!! Oh, My, Gosh! Next time I make them, I will just cut them right away and freeze. :D
