    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.
