Hi there Shabby Creek Cottage readers! It’s Laura, back from Inspiration for Moms with a fun dessert recipe just for you. Spring is finally here and it’s time to celebrate with a fabulous treat that is packed full of mint. My Double Mint Brownies are irresistibly cool all because of a secret ingredient!
Britton was born on February 6 and the whole family is just ga-ga over him. My first son was textbook, but Britton is full of surprises and of course, has to be different. I should have known by how long it took this sweet little guy to enter the world. You can read all about it in my birth story post ! 🙂
Now that my hands are full with a newborn, I have very little time to spend cooking in the kitchen. Dinner is hard. Dessert is impossible. But not with this recipe. All I need is 10 minutes and my secret ingredient to get the best mint brownies in town. That’s right, a box of Junior Mint candies is what fills these dark chocolate brownies full of bursting mint flavor!
To make, I simply pour half the batter into a baking pan. Then top that with a layer of Junior Mints and cover with the remaining batter. Once the brownies are baked and cooled, it’s time for my second layer of mint goodness…Mint Chocolate Chip ice cream! I know sometimes I suggest ice cream as a topping but this time…I’m insisting. Trust me on this. 😉
I hope you’ll give these Double Mint Brownies a try. I will warn you, these brownies can be rich. But so are some of the best things in life! 😉 I can’t wait to see you again in April. Until then, I would love for you to stop by Inspiration for Moms and say “Hi!”. Enjoy!
