Mint Brownie Bites

This is a refreshing after dinner treat that combines the heavenly flavors of mint and chocolate! Enjoy a clean and easy dessert that will satisfy the sweet tooth in all of us.

My son Shane and I love mint flavored desserts. He caught onto me a few years ago when I would order mint chocolate ice cream, because I knew my husband would not be tempted to start dipping into my dish. Now, I have my son Shane as a built in diet plan, because he will forever be reaching into my dish. Those little hands are so cute though, so how I could I even be mad about it?

I use Theo mint chocolate bars for this dessert, but any of your favorite mint chocolate will do. For the batter I use either almond or peanut butter, but to be honest the almond butter works best because the nutty flavor of the almond is more subtle. These may seem a bit dry as you are working the dough, but it will come together don’t worry. I hope you enjoy these as much as I do!
