These taste great! I was worried that the mint might be too strong, but it wasn't. I had a problem with the brownies sticking to the pan really bad even though the pan had been greased, and I'm not quite why that happened.

Very good brownies. I really liked the mini peppermint patties in them. The brownies are nice and moist too. Make sure you grease the pan well! The patties have a tendency to stick a LOT, even in a nonstick pan.
