I love chocolate mint. It is probably one of my favorite flavor combinations. I have used it with my andes cookies and my mint fudge (which is AMAZING!). This Thin Mint recipe takes chocolate/mint to the next level with the amazing chocolate ganache. You'll make these Mint Brownies again and again. They are a delicious recipe to share or to eat a pan all for yourself. 🙂
