Someone gave me a jar of Peppermint Brownies by Skip To My Lou for Christmas.   

I am SO glad she did.  

These are REALLY good.  I would never have tried them otherwise as I'm not real adventurous.
Kaela was having a sleep over and I didn't feel like pulling out a recipe and baking.  What is easier than a box mix?  A JAR mix.  You don't even have a box to throw away!
Anyway, I made them.....I tried them.....and next year, I'll be the one giving them away as gifts...they are THAT good!  (Not to mention making the for myself throughout the year!)

I have a link to her blog so you can check it out.  There is even a cute label to go along with the recipe so click HERE to go to her link, you won't be disappointed.   I used her original photo below so you can see how they are presented....so cute!

They are slightly minty and chewy and just about TOO rich....perfection. (cue: large glass of milk)

And BTW, if you've got a hankering for those Girl Scout thin mint cookies but can't wait  'til February, then try THESE instead.  
Truth be told, I may never buy thin mints again!

Mint and chocolate to me are the perfect combination so I have no doubt I would like them. Cute, cute jar! There's lots of peppermint recipes I've wanted to make over the years but can't get peppermint extract here -- and half the time, can't even find regular peppermint candies. :/ Enjoy! Tammy

these don't call for extract so maybe you could make them!
