These are my grandmother’s, out of this world, mint sticks (okay or mint brownies). I refuse to eat any other mint brownies because they just aren’t good enough.

You guys. My grandma ruined me. I can never enjoy mint brownies because they never compare to her mint sticks. These are so good and SO addicting, I’m giving you fair warning. My mom would make these all the time growing up and I have never tasted another mint brownie like it. Whatever combination of mint, chocolate, sugar etc. my grandma used to create this recipe is better than anything else you will ever taste. So give my grandma some love and whip up a batch of these. Oh my goodness I’m drooling just writing this post!

  1. I can totally vow for how good these are!! I have had them growing up when your mom has made them. I’m so excited to now be able to make them on my own!! YUM

  2. Well, these look totally decadent and I’m kicking myself because I just got back from the grocery store without mint extract.

  3. OK I’m watching my sweets intake but I think I might have to make these…I can have a small piece and the family can enjoy the rest =)
