Junior Mint Brownies

Today I made some brownies to use up more of the stuff in the freezer. I found this recipe for minty brownies from Cooking Light (what a surprise). They were extremely easy to make and very yummy. I will make these again.

My changes: didn't have Junior Mints, substituted mint chocolate chips.

Junior Mint Brownies
Cooking spray
1/4 cup butter or stick margarine
32 (about 3 ounces) creamy, small-size mints in pure chocolate (such as Junior Mints)
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa
1 large egg
1 large egg white

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Coat bottom of an 8-inch square baking pan with cooking spray.
Combine butter and mints in a 2-cup glass measure; microwave at high 30 seconds or until soft. Stir until smooth, and set aside.

Lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup, and level with a knife. Combine flour, soda, and salt in a bowl. Combine sugar, cocoa, egg, and egg white in a large bowl; beat at medium speed of a mixer until well-blended. Add mint mixture; beat well. Add flour mixture; beat at low speed just until blended. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean; cool completely on a wire rack.

Yield: 16 servings

I tried making these today and I have no idea what I did wrong. The consistency was almost dough-like, so I added milk and made it somewhat thin and then stuck it in the oven. They are cooking right now, so who knows if I'll make them right or what they'll taste like.

I'm such a dunce when it comes to baking !
