Homemade Brownies

Whenever I tell the boys I made something from scratch, the Wee One replies "Scratch the box."

These brownies are made from scratch and are the best I've tasted.  They are easy to whip up and use items found in my pantry.:)  You can adapted them to your liking.  Today I had Andes' peppermint chips left over from my Christmas baking.  I decided to put a handful or two in the batter and use peppermint extract instead of vanilla.  I absolutely love chocolate and mint flavor combination so I can't wait to have them after dinner.
