When Saint Patricks Day comes around I always feel like my mind is on all things mint which is why I decided to create these delicious mint brownies! And so here are the beloved brownies that have become ever so popular over the years at parties, family gatherings, or just as dessert! These are great made ahead and can even be put in the freezer! Make sure you use margarine or they will not set up the same and when you put them on the fridge or freezer you will get a weird film on top of them instead of the glossy smooth finish like the margarine will do to the brownies! Try them out!
