    Creme de Menthe style

    Carol Gliem from BERWICK, PA

    I made these for a party one time, instead of using peppermint for the mint,I used a small amount of creme dementhe syrup, which makes the icing more green, and drizzled chocolate on top to finish. For the drizzle, melt equal amounts of butter (no subs) and Nestle's chocolate chips, mix and drizzle on top!

    Just A Tad More Mint

    Erin Smith from Washington, PA

    The brownies are great and the recipe is easy. I would add Andes Candies or Peppermint Patties after the brownies are out of the oven for a more minty taste. Love them!!!!

    Good and Minty

    Melissa Mogler from Hancock, MN

    My husband just loved these. He loves just about anything that has mint in them. Usually I can't find any good recipes with mint in them but even I enjoyed these brownies. There wasn't too much mint but yet there was enough mint to get the full flavor.

    Not minty enough

    Nancy Oltman from Hastings, NE

    These brownies were moist and very good, but I like a lot more mint taste. I think next time I will place mint patties on top of brownies just out of the oven for a more minty taste.

    Great Combination

    Diane Erickson from Murrieta, CA

    The chocolate and mint combination in this brownie is unbeatable. It is very moist and tasty. I put just a drop or two of mint extract in the frosting to give it that extra minty taste.

    Review for Moist And Minty Brownies

    Trish Leishman from Taylorsville, UT, USA

    This is a wonderful recipe. A hit at any party! I also mix it in a 13x9 pan and it will make more. Also you can change the accent icing from chocolate to different colors for a holiday or season. I like using blue & red for July! Lots of fun and so yummy!
