I just love finding new things, and the minute I found these limited edition Nestle Toll House Dark Chocolate & Mint Morsels in my local grocery store, I knew I had to try them.

The first thought that popped into my head was, “I bet these would taste wonderful baked into a nice big batch of moist brownies.”

I’m happy to report that I was not wrong? 🙂

~Enjoy~

  1. Cool, I hope I can find these in my local stores. My husband loves anything chocolate & mint. He would devour these brownies!

  2. Your Brownies look sooo good! I’ll look for these morsels in my grocery store. Thanks!

  3. i can’t help but feel like these were made for me! i LOOOOVE chocolate and mint!

  4. Those sound really good but I don’t bake very well and usually screw up when I make brownies from scratch. This make me want to try again though because chocolate and mint are only second to chocolate and peanut butter.
