St. Patricks Day Brownies

So, I didn’t quite get around to making that pinata cake, but I did get around to making these wonderful St. Patrick’s Day brownies. I came across this recipe 3-4 years ago wondering around World Market and get super excited about making the recipe every year!

I must be honest … these brownies are super rich and are more like fudge than brownies, but I don’t think that’s a bad thing!  If you decide to make them, please comment below. I would love to know how yours turn out.
