These peppermint brownies defy all odds of delicious-ness and peppermint.
I have a love / hate relationship with the mint flavor. One minute I can’t get it into my mouth fast enough, the next minute the flavor is too toothpaste-y and I want nothing to do with it.
I’ve always LOVED mint hot chocolate – something about the cool mint with the juxtaposition of hot cocoa is so delicious to me. But with food, I go on and off. One minute a mint brownie is my most favorite treat, the next it’s just MEH. No thanks.
I’m weird, right?
