Easy as 1-2-3 Chocolate Mint Brownies

 
 
Who doesn't like Brownies?
Here's an easy, no fuss brownie with mint deliciousness added to it.
 
I have been crazy baking for the past week for everyone close to me,
and to the people that help us a great deal
on our everyday living.
And one thing I made that will help cut down with the prep time
is this delicious semi-homemade brownie.
I know, I know,  brownie from scratch is always better,
but cut me some slack,
I've been slaving in my kitchen for days.
And I promise this will taste just as good as the one made from scratch.
But hey if you feel strongly about using your own brownie recipe
go for it.
 
I had some left over Mint Baking chips from the cookies I made,
 don't want it to sit in my pantry.
While I was racking my brain on what to do with this chips,
I glanced at the back of the package and found a recipe for this delicious easy brownie.
What a great idea!
 
 
 

 
 
 
With this recipe,
you can surely use you favorite brownie recipe or your favorite brownie mix.
since I don't want to fuss anymore,
I used my favorite brownie mix which is Ghirardelli Triple Chocolate Brownie
I picked up from my favorite warehouse store,
 Costco.
This always come in handy on busy days with the kids,
and you need a quick snack that they will all love,
 and they can easily help without trouble.
My daughter loves making this for her friends when they come visit.
The reason why I keep a large box in my pantry.
 
Funny thing is,
when I came to my Moms Group meeting yesterday,
our friend Jill made some for everyone.
It was delicious!
 
This brownie is chocolate heaven moist,
Pure Decadence!
