I am really excited today to be sharing this with you. ¬† I am doing something really fun today- I am participating in a¬†virtual bake sale!¬† ¬†So there are 36 bloggers and we have teamed up into groups of six. ¬†Each team has to try to “sell” the most recipes.
My teammates and I, each a part of  Mom it Forward Blogger Network, are teaming up with our sponsor, McCormick, to get creative and come up with some fantastic recipes.  I am doing mint brownies!

Our challenge: we had to take one of McCormick’s recipes and be inspired from it, creating our own idea from it.

Here is the one that I decided to be inspired by (this one is by McCormick):

choco mint brownie

Choco-Mint Crownie: a cookie/brownie combo ‚Äď Combine two favorite bake sale treats in a flavorful mash-up of cookie dough and brownie batter, baked into a bar and flavored with peppermint extract for a rich, memorable treat: the Choco-Mint Crownie.

From this recipe, I decided to make my Minty Brownie Bites. ¬†I can’t take all of the credit- our kids gave me the idea of using their favorite Mint-Sandwich Cookie!

Here is how you make my Minty Brownie Bites:

Ingredients (THIS IF FOR A BIG BATCH OF BROWNIES):
2 Cups Sugar
1 Cup Flour
2/3 Cup Cocoa
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1/2 teaspoon Baking Powder
4 eggs
1 cup canola oil (or vegetable oil)
2 teaspoon McCormick¬ģ pure vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon McCormick¬ģ pure peppermint extract

 One package of Mint-sandwich cookies (set aside)

Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl.
Mix the wet ingredients in a separate bowl.
Combine in a large bowl and mix until combined and then pour them into a glass pan.

(HINT: if you don’t have time for this, just buy TWO BOXES of brownie mix and make it like the box instructs. ¬†Add the peppermint extract before mixing).


HERE COMES THE FUN PART!

Lay 1/2 of the brownie batter in the bottom of the pan…

Place a mint-chocolate sandwich cookie on top of the batter.
 (They will look like this:)

Put more batter on top of this cookie.

Bake at 350 for 35 minutes.

Let it cool before serving. ¬†(To make them “bites”, you will just want to cut them smaller.. they are perfect for little mouths. ¬†Or leave them big for the grown-ups. ¬†I like to do both: half of the pan cut small, half of the pan cut into bigger pieces)

It is really good!!

So, back to the bake sale.  I was placed on a team with 5 amazing bloggers.  Let me introduce them to you, with their recipes:
