Mint Brownies

It wasn't until I was a teenager, maybe even a little older, when I finally tried my Aunt Julie's Mint Brownies. It wasn't anything against my Aunt, I just assumed they were something I wouldn't like. Boy, was I wrong! Not like? What was there not to like? My Aunt Julie's recipe for Mint Chocolate Brownies is out of this world! Whenever we have a family get together, which is quite often, I'm always anxious to see if my Aunt Jul brought her famous Mint Brownies. If so, I will be the first to dig in!
