Chocolate and Mint Shamrock Brownies

 

Chocolate and Mint Shamrock Brownies from At the Picket Fence

Wedged between Valentine’s Day and Easter, sometime’s St. Patrick’s Day can get a little overlooked in our rush to embrace spring with open arms!

But here, At The Picket Fence, we like to take time to celebrate the Luck O’ the Irish and what better way than with some Shamrock Brownies!

Beyond the Pub Crawls, Green Beer and 4 Leaf Clovers, St. Patrick was a real man, who persevered through insurmountable challenges, and went on to lead an amazing life!

These fun Chocolate and Mint Layered Shamrock Brownies hardly do St. Patrick justice but there is something special about homemade brownies made with simple ingredients.  I like to believe he would have appreciated one of these delicious brownies, made in his honor, with a pint of ale!
