Happy St. Patrick's Day!
Even if drinking green or wearing green is not your style, eating green can be.
And I'm not talking kale or spinach. Maybe that's for tomorrow's recovery.
It's the weekend, so let's roll with mint oreos. These brownies are simple with minimal ingredients, including a boxed mix. You can indulge in these brownies hot and gooey right out of the pan or cool and slice them for later.
What You Need
1 box Betty Crocker Fudge Molten Lava brownie mix, including the egg, water and oil as listed on the box
7 mint Oreos, cut or broken into pieces
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips, divided
What You Do
Preheat the oven per package instructions. Coat a 9x9 pan with cooking spray. I use a silicone pan for ease. Prepare the brownies per package instructions and include 1/4 cup of the mini chocolate chips.
Pour half of the batter into the pan. Squeeze the lava filling included with the brownies onto the batter and top with the oreos and remaining 1/4 cup chocolate chips. Spoon the remaining batter on top of the cookies and chips and bake per instructions for 9x9 pan.
Serve hot or at room temperature - your call. Either way, these brownies will be devoured quickly.
Meanwhile in San Diego
We're having more rain than normal, and in SoCal no one really knows how to drive in the rain.
But, that means the roses at the Balboa Park Rose Garden are starting to bloom.
The cactus garden at the park thrives all year, because that's how cactus do their thing.
