25 Days of Cookies: Mrs. Lash’s Mint Brownies

Sammy Keating

Sammy recommends enjoying Mrs. Lash's mint brownies on the second day of our 25 Days of Cookies.
Each year, my neighbor makes mint chocolate chip brownies. They’re the best treat around the holidays, and they are incredibly addictive. In my neighborhood, it’s not Christmas without some of Mrs. Lash’s brownies.

Milk as needed to soften frosting

Chocolate drizzle:
