Is there anything better than chocolate and mint? It’s an amazing combination and one that becomes quite popular around Saint Patrick’s Day. After all, we need a green dessert to celebrate the holiday. Instead of reaching for that same green milkshake you get at your favourite fast food place, why not celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with some delicious Thin Mint Gooey Brownies!

These Thin Mint Brownies are sure to rock your world. The mint and chocolate ganache layers take these boxed brownies and turn them into something truly special. No one will ever guess that these brownies weren’t made from scratch. Oh, and did I mention that the ganache layer is topped with Fudge Mint Cookies? Oh, yeah. These are the brownies you’ve been dreaming out. Of course, if you want to take them over the top, you can also add mint chocolate chips to the brownie mx.

If you’re looking to save time, you can make the brownie layer ahead of time. You can make it the day before or you can make it several days in advance and pop it in the freezer. Allow the brownies to thaw and come to room temperature before adding the other layers.

These brownies are an absolute must for those that love chocolate and mint. Whether you’re making these for your family, a bake sale, or just to eat by yourself as a treat after a hard day, these will be a big hit.  And, if you happen to top these with mint chocolate chip ice cream, a bit of hot fudge sauce, and even some whipped cream – well, I promise not to tell.

In all seriousness, these Thin Mint Brownies are the perfect addition to a child’s St. Patrick’s Day party, but are also something that parents are going to enjoy. Make sure to have plenty of milk and coffee on hand to enjoy with these delicious brownies.
