Mint Brownie Wedges

A few days ago on instagram, I posted a picture of mint/dark chocolate chips I was going to use for baking and this was the outcome. First, let me start from the beginning and tell you that I had acquired these chocolate chips months back during a post holiday season clearance sale because yes that’s the only time you’ll find these particular ones. And since my last bag was nearing expiration, it was time to experiment and create a cool minty treat. After a failure making some double chocolate mint cookies in the past, I thought I’d steer toward something I’m best at and it is brownies! I’ve shared my favorite go-to recipe for fudge brownies earlier this year and this recipe makes the rich and chewy fudge kind I like as well. The best thing about this recipe is that the brownies get a bit fancy with the use of a springform pan so instead of the usual squares, you get nice sliced wedges as if it’s a pizza, which is pretty awesome. Enjoy!

Have a great week everyone!
P.S. My birthday is in two days!
