Something Chocolatey?

Who out there likes to eat brownies? How about mint brownies? I know that I LOVE mint brownies. 

A classic recipe is to make up your favorite batch of brownies, add 5-7 drops of peppermint at the very end before you pour into the pan and bake as you normally would! How many drops depends on how strong you like the mint flavor. Don't be afraid to give the batter a little sample (or two or three :) ) to see if you want it stronger or not. They are so yummy when they are warm and gooey and pepperminty!
Feel free to experiment. I have heard of people trying the oil Orange or Citrus Bliss in their brownies as well. Peppermint is just the only one that I have tried. Get creative! 
If you are using the oils in any of your cooking, please let us know what you are doing! The more ideas, the better!
