Chocolate Mint Brownies

I got this wonderful recipe from someone I work with! It was so good I just needed to share it with you! I had a little helper help me with this recipe too! My nephew Lucas came over for a slumber party with me where we watched movies and ate “poptorn and tandy” all night long! In the morning he helped me make these amazing brownies! Here is how you make them!
-Good old fashion box brownie mix!
Can you make brownies from scratch? Sure! Did I have time? No! (: My motto is SIMPLE is always BETTER!
-Thin Mints
So begin by getting all your ingredients together!
