Minty Fudge Brownies

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by flower7

I adopted this from the Recipezaar account. They are more a cakey brownie when right out of the oven but get more fudgy after cooling. They have a nice light mint flavor. If you can't find the mint chocolate chips you can recreate with regular semi-sweet chips and a few drops of peppermint oil (as that is what makes the mint chips minty).

Funny story . . I went to buy the ingredients for these brownies, and I couldn't find mint chocolate chips anywhere. So, I ended up using those York Peppermint Bites - you know, the little round ones. I added a square of bakers chocolate so it wouldn't be overly minty. Turned out pretty good, nice and moist; good texture.
