IT’S NATIONAL CHOCOLATE MINT DAY!
With Girl Scout cookies abounding these days, it’s hard to turn down a box of Thin Mints. But as all people focused on losing weight will tell you, sometimes you really have to weigh the consequences and decide if it’s really worth it to buy a box. You can make a donation the troop directly, though, if that is the source of your guilt.
We decided to use the leftover Peppermint Patty today to get to our chocolatey minty. We handed it over to SPom and she whipped up these amazing brownies. Brownie mix, lightened up, with a little bit of peppermint extract in the batter. Then, distribute the bits of peppermint patty. We were all pleasantly astonished at how well the patty melted. They were so, so, so good.
AK really loved the gooey inside, and SP especially liked the crisp edges’ contrast. SPom really works wonders, doesn’t she?
Tomorrow is Cherry Pie day!
