Andes Mint Brownies

Andes Mint Brownies

I love me some brownies and this was yet another excellent version of the delicious, classic treat.

Basically the gist is a simple (fudgy and decadent) brownie batter infused with chunks of minty, sweet, chocolatey Andes squares.

I didn’t know this would happen when I was shoving them in the oven, but after baking, the morsels of Andes mints all sank down near the bottom of the brownies.

Initially, I was disappointed, but after the brownies cooled and we inhaled them, I loved the yumminess of biting into the soft, chewy brownie and then getting a refreshing wave of smooth, minty crust on the bottom.

Delish.
