I have to tell you something about me. It's pretty serious...ok maybe not sooo serious, but oh well I'm telling you anyway. One of my favorite combinations in the world is mint and chocolate. My favorite ice cream is mint chocolate chip, and don't even get me started on those Andes mints or thin mint Girl Scout cookies, I could eat my weight in those things. With that being said St. Patrick's day is right around the corner and naturally I have to make something green. My Grandma's Mint Chocolate Brownie Bites are to die for in my book and rank right up there with those other yummy sweet treats I just mentioned! So I made them.
And...let me just go ahead and say that these do not fall into the healthy category (at all), but they ARE cut into bite size pieces. Moderation people...
They are layered with a moist brownie bottom, a minty buttercream center, and finished off with a luscious chocolately glaze. Oh yeah, nothing wrong with any of that if you ask me. What's even better (I know how could they get better) is that you keep them in the fridge so they stay fresh for up to two weeks (I mean honestly they probably won't last that long) or you can freeze them!
Where I live, we have a St. Patty's Day parade on Saturday so I made these brownies for my "green" dessert, and let's be honest it really just gave me an excuse to make them without feeling bad since others would be helping me eat them. :)
Now it's your turn. Make my Grandma's Mint Chocolate Brownie Bites so we can talk about how good they are and I don't have to obsess alone!
