This is one of the things we made and sold at the specialty grocery/cafe' that I worked at. These brownies are rich and moist and a great treat for mint lovers. They have to be pretty good to sell for two dollars a brownie! (prep time includes refrigeration)

The last step with the chocolate chips and butter did not turn out for me. It was a gloopy mess. Not at all what the pictures resembled. I actually tried it twice and was mad after I wasted the ingredients. I decided to put both of my tries into the kitchen aid and add milk and some powdered sugar to see what would happen. Turned out better than the gloopy mess. Next time I will just make a chocolate frosting to put on the top. Other than that, they tasted great. Will make again but with my own frosting recipe.
