Perfect brownies! Delicious, very chocolatey, but no flavor is overpowering. First time ever I make brownies, but certainly not the last!

I made these as written without any changes. They were very fudgy and had a subtle peppermint flavor. I plan to make this recipe again.

I made these for my family and they raved over them. The peppermint is a perfect amount, not too overwhelming.

Added a cup of chopped walnuts . Liked the taste, but they were a little dry and hard.
