Chocolate Thin Mint Brownies

This recipe is a family classic! They are the perfect dessert to take to a party or potluck dinner because they make so many (and they are so rich that you can only handle a small brownie at a time!). I am a sucker for anything with mint and chocolate together and these didn’t disappoint!
