Mint Brownies bring back memories from Thanksgiving.  My mom used to make them every year to bring along to my Aunt’s house.  They dissappeared so quickly she probably should have brought twice the amount.  Although there was always apple pie and pumpkin pie to fall back on.  Everytime I eat them whether it’s around Thanksgiving or Christmas or not, they always make me think of those holidays.  Some foods just do that, at least for me.  Do you have a specific food, recipe or flavor that bring great memories to mind?  I’d love to hear about them if you want to share!

These brownies start with a nice sturdy brownie layer.  A bit on the spongy side.  Then you top that with a tasty mint filling and finally a nice chocolate almost fudge-like layer.  (don’t mind my not-so professional picture…but at least you get the idea!)
