Chocolate Mint Brownies


Mint is one of my favorite flavors. It's also my go-to flavor. If we are getting ice cream, I'll probably get Mint Chip. If we are getting fudge, I get mint. I LOVE it! Today I want to share these tasty Mint Chocolate Brownies. The brownies are from scratch but you can feel free to use a box mix if you want. I think I actually prefer the box mix because those tend to be chewy brownies and these homemade ones are very cake like. These recipes come from my favorite Hershey's 100th Anniversary … [Read more...]

What if we had a snack made out of those yummy, but sugary cereals. Rainbow Chow was born! Rainbow Chow  Ingredients 1 Cup … [Read more...]
