Chocolate Mint Brownies

 Chocolate Mint Brownies
One of the best things about this recipe is the brownies get moister if you leave them in the refrigerator a day or two. The problem at our house is no one can leave them alone for that long! My husband—the best auctioneer you've ever heard!—and I have two grown daughters and a son, 14.
