    Fresh bresh in brownie form.

    No one can resist the temptation of freshly baked brownies. How about adding a little twist to the mix with some peppermint? I say "YES PLEASE!". This recipe is one of my favorites, if done right of course. Don't be afraid to pig out before a hot date anymore! Chow down on these guys and freshen up that breathe to impress that special someone in your life.

    Surprisingly Easy

    I went into this thinking it would be a lot of work to make these but they looked so good in the picture I had to give it a try. The ingredients went together quickly and the directions were easy to follow. I admit mine did not look as good as the ones in the picture, but my next batch will be better. Good recipe for a party or just for the family,

    Decadent, rich, chewy with a hard layer that melts in your mouth. All of this and easy to make! Highly recommended when you are looking to impress!

    Minty and amazing!

    How could this be bad, no really now, ask yourself? We substituted butter for margarine (because I enjoy butter much more). The end result was amazing, not overpoweringly sweet but incredibly refreshing and satisfying!

    Wonderful!

    It was the easiest, but no where near the hardest recipe, but oh so wonderful when it was done! The mint layer was really easy to make and I can't believe how well these turned out. I let them chill for about 2 1/2 hours, at 1 hour, it seemed like it needed more time. We didn't even have any left by the next morning. Usually we have a few stray brownies, but not this time. It was a big hit with everyone, including my neighbor who we took one to. 7 people were really glad I found this recipe. Smooth mint layer, perfect chocolate brownie layer that was soft, but not crumble soft, just right.

    Free of everything my family is allergic to!

    I rember making there as a tween, but back then I did not have Celiac disease. 40 years later 2 of my daughters have the same and two have lactose intolerance. It is so hard to find something that comes close to the nostalgic taste of food before an allergy takes it away but this recipe does it! I recently made it for my daughters first art show and they flew off the table; many people asked for the recipe. Way to go Silk!

    My first Silk recipe

    I am trying to eat healthy and Silk is one of the products I purchased yesterday so I jumped on and grabbed this recipe. I wanted a sweet treat and this worked. However I halfed the peppermint extract because I do not like peppermint and it was really good.

    Chocoholic alters the recipe a bit

    I used some dates instead of sugar + a few other alterations that I prefer in a healthy decadence. It was amazing, & I would have given a higher rating had the recipe simply been printed that way instead of demanding so much thought from me.

    The Best Mint Brownie Ever !

    I made these for a party. I used butter instead of margarine, and put some Whipped Cream on each of the brownies as they were served. I'm glad I doubled the recipe, because there were some who wanted a second one. I even had a couple of people who took one with them to savor for later. I downloaded the recipe and made copies to give to my friends. I received so many compliments on the brownies. They were so easy to make, and such a big hit that I'll be making more of these. Thank you for the recipe !

    nice find!

    I searched for this recipe. It was a great find because it uses Silk almondmilk, which I'm a big fan of so it is in my fridge always, along with all the other ingredients. It is a smooth taste to the palate and easy to make. I will make it again. It's a keeper! Thanks silk!

    absolutely fantastic.

    i was recently diagnosed with celiac disease and lactose intolorance after years of tummy troubles, so silk almond milk has become my best friend and I am sure it will be the remainder of my life. I have been looking for gluten free recipies where I could incorporate almond milk into baking goodies for myself, and I was just in heaven when I made this one. it was perfect. Now i dont feel so deprived from sweets and treats and i cant wait to show off this recipie to my friends and co workers who know i have had a hard time with my diet changes!!! thanks!!!!

    Ladies favorite

    I've been a fan of peppermint and chocolate combos since 1961 when my mom made me peppermint frosted brownies for my birthday. I lost that recipe - so I was thrilled to find this one. It is easy, fast and delicious. The only problem? Once you cut into them, they disappear. They are yummy!!

    yummy as is! now to try to find healthier ingredients to substitute for oil and sugar! Applesauce or prunes? Make my own almond flour with almonds finely blended.Make it more chocolaty with cocoa subbing for some of powdered sugar.

    This is my go to recipe for my morning coffee chats with the girls. These have my favorite two flavors chocolate and mint! The recipe is easy to follow and even a novice baker can accomplish these. I feel like a "Martha Stewart" host when I bake these and share them with the girls. I know I get to be the gossip of the week, because they all talk about my delish bars made with Silk!
