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.
Don’t you just want to take a bite?! ;)
Thin mint girl scout cookies mixed in these mint brownies were the PERFECT addition! We also like to use thin mint OREOS! These little hands just couldn’t resist … and I can never resist the batter ;)
