  1. Prepare brownie mix according to package directions. Spread into a 9x13 inch pan and bake as directed.
  2. Unwrap mint wafer candies while brownies are baking in the oven. When the brownies are done, place mint wafer candies side by side onto the top of the hot brownies and let them sit for a minute to soften. Using a knife or spatula, gently swirl melted candy over surface of brownies. Allow to cool a few hours so the candy hardens. Cut into bars.

This is a delicious and more visually appetizing dish when the thin mints are layered INSIDE the brownie. Pour half the batter in the pan, layer the thin mints, then top with remaining batter.

Even though it was quick and easy, it was a mess. I made this for a party and no one touched it because it looks so bad when you cut it. My kids made balls out of it afterwards and ate them.

Good stuff! Doesn't get much easier than this and the end result was sooo delicious. The hardest part was waiting for the candies to cool before cutting (I stuck the pan in the fridge to speed up the process)! Seems like the biggest complaint from reviewers was that these weren't very pretty. To get that green and chocolate swirl color, you need to use Andes Parfait mints, not Creme de Menthe. The Parfait ones have much more green coloring than the Creme de Menthes. Thanks :)

I made these using the bagged andies mint baking pieces. Using half the bag. These are delicious but be sure and let them cool completely before trying to slice.

I got rave reviews for this,and it was so simple to make! A couple hints: I popped the brownies back in the oven for 1-2 minutes to help melt the mints, then just barely had to spread them. A few swirls,and it looked great! And make sure you wait till the chocolate hardens back up before cutting. Yum!

The brownies taste great and are SO easy! However, there was no stunning chocolate and green mint display. They were essentially brownies topped with Andes mints, but you couldn't see the green.

Ijust made this recipe (after tasting an amazing batch a friend a school made) and it came out great. The frosting is swirled green and brown, just like my friend's. I put the mints in the oven on top of the brownies for the last ten minutes and then spread them over the brownies with a spatula after I took the brownies out. Also, for decoration, I chopped up the extra mints and sprinkled them on top of the frosting when it was almost cool (so they would stick without melting). Hope that helps those of you who had problems with it. I highly recommend this recipe for school or parties!

I used andies mint pieces like another reviewe.r (since that is what I had here) My kids seemed to really enjoy them. I turned my back and 3/4 of the pan was already gone.
