I love making cupcakes. I love cooking in general and with a wicked sweet tooth I look for every opportunity to bake desserts I can find. Today is my friend from works bday. Yesterday I decided to wake up early and make something for the occasion. I bring cupcakes all the time so I thought I’d change it up a bit and made brownies. They can’t be just any normal brownies so since I was out of cream cheese I went with my favorite combination. Mint and chocolate! I have 5 I saved for myself because they were so yummy and I can only share so much. Haha! I used whole wheat flour and the consistency was really nice. I doubled my recipe to make super thick brownies. But here’s the recipe for normal people!
