  1. i modified this recipe slightly but they turned out quite well. i made them into brownie bites by putting them in a 24 hole mini muffin pan. i also had fun sized chocolates left over from a box of favourites so i left out the mints and halved the chocolate instead which were really yummy. i baked them for 10 mins and they did turn out kinda cakeish but still thought they tasted good :) great healthier alternative to fatty, sugary brownies and good way to use up mints or chocolates haha
  2. These sounded great, but I was disappointed. I had to bake mine several minutes longer than recommended to get anything close to a 'clean' toothpick. Mine came out more cake-like than brownie-like. I expected more of a minty-chocolate taste than I got. Mine was just subtly minty and not really chocolatey at all. Just not what I expected.
  3. Well, I don't know how healthy these are, but I DO know they are delicious. :) They are rich, fudgy, and minty---loved the mint flavor! I followed the directions as written, except I mixed them by hand rather than using a mixer, and baked them a couple of minutes longer. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
