Chocolate Mint Brownies
















Mint and chocolate. Is there any better combination? By themselves they are pretty good, but when combined, these two titans of taste pack a mouth-watering, taste-bud tantalizing, stomach craving experience that very few can pass by.

It's as if mint and chocolate have always been destined for each other, and really, who am I to get in the way of destiny? Using our amazing, versatile, and very scrumptious brownie mix, and with a little help from our impressive Baker's Cocoa, I've created a delightful dessert that fuses these two flavors together in a way that will leave your mouth exuberant with every bite! And really, isn't that the point of desserts? Grab your hand mixer, it's time to whip up some Chocolate Mint Brownies!
