The Luck of the Irish has been in my house today!  I’ve been testing a few recipes for St. Patrick’s Day and prepping for a special dinner party.  That celebrated day is also Mr. A Southern Soul’s birthday so, I decided we should start the party a little early.  Sometimes you need to do dessert first so I grabbed my fav box mix – Ghirardelli Double Chocolate and added a few extra ingredients.  These brownies are rich, fudgy and have the perfect minty crunch from the M&M’s.  It’s always fun to get the party started a little early…
