These brownies are delicious! I love mint flavors and these brownies have it! I ended up adding 1 1/2 teaspoons of peppermint extract to really enhance the mint flavor to better fit my taste and they are amazing. A perfect mix of fudgie and cake like brownies. I omitted the chocolate drizzle on top.
