Quick Junior Mint Brownies

"You can use your favorite brownie recipe if you prefer. This is one of those "hurry up, I need to take a dessert" recipes for me! It is always well received. I use Pillsbury Traditional Fudge Brownie mix. To cut brownies smoothly, use a putty knife or a plastic knife."

  1. So quick and easy but wow, talk about rich! I had to get a glass of milk and ended up cutting them in half because eating a whole one was tough. I had people at work coming back for more though and they cleaned them up!
  2. I served these with my mint Cocoa. Junior mints are my favorite candy and these were awesome
  3. Oh my goodness, but these are tasty! Easy to make as well! Extremely rich and satisfying. I am not the most proficient marbler so mine were not the most attractive, but boy are they yummy and in the long run that is ALL that really matters!
  4. Sorry can't rate this as yet because I haven'd tried them, BUT they are exactly what I need for a quick dessert tomorrow. Thanks for posting at the right time!!!! Now I know they work and very, very good. Just do not overbake.
