During the holidays I bought a bag of Andes Mint Chips, but never got around to using them. I had too many other things to bake! I found them in my stash the other day and decided to whip up a quick treat for my niece and nephew.
I made a classic brownie recipe and added some mint chips to the batter. The chips melted away so you couldn’t even tell mint was involved until you took a bite. The mint burst was pretty powerful with the chocolate, but I loved it!
I cut the brownies into tiny squares and dusted them with powdered sugar. You can make these in your sleep! This is a great recipe to have on hand!
As you can see Aubrey loved them! We had a great time playing with the kiddies. They know they will always get a sweet treat when they see Aunt Ria and Uncle Josh!
