Double Decker Mint Chocolate Chunk Brownies








     Just a typical day at the office...an office where EVERYONE wants to work that is!  Double Decker Mint Chocolate Chunk Brownies are the perfect solution to any upcoming Holiday Gathering or to simply have around the house to enjoy the festive spirit.  Volunteer to bring a healthy offering at every celebration this Season (and hopefully there will be some left over to take home).  The best news is that for each of the 9 rich and hearty decadent Brownies, it is only 219 calories, 5g net carbs and 12g protein.  Santa will be praying you leave your left overs on the mantel for him on Christmas Eve...  ;)
