Mint Brownies + Recipe

Need I say more?


Picture found on Briana's blog which she found here.

Thanks to Erin, here is the recipe!

Recipe:

* 1 cup butter
* 6 oz. unsweetened chocolate, chopped
* 3 cups sugar
* 1/2 tsp salt
* 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
* 4 large eggs, room temperature
* 1 2/3 cups all purpose flour
* 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
* 3 cups roughly chopped peppermint oreo-type cookies (approx 18)

1. - Preheat oven to 350F.
2. Line a 9×13-inch baking pan with aluminum foil, and grease lightly.
3. In a medium-large saucepan over low heat, melt together butter and chocolate, stirring occasionally.
4. Whisk in sugar, salt and vanilla, then turn off heat.
5. Whisk in eggs one at a time, waiting until each is fully incorporated before adding the next.
6. Stir in flour and cocoa powder until mixture is uniform.
7. Stir in peppermint oreo cookies and pour batter into prepared pan.
8. Crush 3-4 additional cookies finely and sprinkle on top of batter, if desired.
9. Bake for about 35 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with moist crumbs, but not coated with batter.
10. Cool brownies in pan for about 20 minutes, then lift brownies in the foil out of the pan and place on a wire rack to cool completely before slicing.

I will have to try this one-- when I was pregnant- I ate anything I wanted because I rationalized that i would eat healthier after i had the baby-- now that i have had my baby- I still want to eat all those bad things- so this recipe will be perfect!
