Mint Chocolate Brownies

Mint chocolate brownies

I am on a mint-chocolate rampage for which I will not apologize.

It just makes so much sense. After a meal I always want one of two things: gum or chocolate. Combined, the two are a force to be reckoned with, which is why mint chocolate brownies are an excellent idea.

Yes.

I used this recipe from Oh She Glows but used dried figs instead of dates and brown sugar + some rice milk (to make up for the loss of liquid) instead of maple syrup (because I didn’t have any on hand). I also added dark chocolate mints. Oh yes I did. Next time I’d add mint extract to the batter. And I want to play around with making my own dark chocolate mint layer. Delusions of grandeur…

I think my oven is waaaa-aaaay hotter than it’s supposed to be so I overcooked mine. BUT they are still good. AND they go quite nicely with this…

Mint chocolate overload

Happy summer. Happy summer, indeed.
