I am of German and Irish descent, so I like to bake, probably as much as I like to cook. Brownies are one of my favorite treats. However, I like to mix it up and include mint to my brownie treats. I found this recipe for Luck o' the Irish Brownies online @ Allrecipes.com. One of the reasons I like mint so much is because it tastes so refreshing, similar to eating a York Peppermint Patty.

This recipe for Luck o' the Irish Brownies has been a tremendous success for me personally during the holiday season. Of course, it works well on St. Patrick’s Day, too.

Try it! Your family and friends will like it a lot.

Please note, it is very important that you use a 9x13-inch pan.
