Mint Brownies Recipe
Everyone will want to be Irish on Saint Patrick’s Day when Chocolate Chip Mint Brownies are for dessert! And you’ll be happy to make these homemade brownies when the “frosting” is just one ingredient…..Andes mint candies!
Mint candies melt over warm brownies to form a creamy topping. Sprinkle with shamrock sprinkles and you’re all set to celebrate your Irish!
You can serve our Chocolate Chip Mint Brownies as full size brownies or cut them into bite size pieces to feed a crowd! Maybe you’ll want to serve two desserts and you can make our No-Bake Bailey’s Irish Cream Parfaits too! If you decide to serve both desserts then I suggest making the parfaits in smaller jars so no one has to make decisions and can have both sweet treats! If anyone is a Libra like me, decisions can be so difficult! And really, who wants to have to decide between two desserts?
