A word of warning: some serious chocolatey goodness and test of will-power is ahead for anyone who dares to bake Merridee’s Mint Fudge Brownies.

Once you taste these, you’ll want to sample other Merridee’s goodies, but for that you’ll need to take a road trip. Merridee’s Breadbasket is a bakery turned favorite gathering place in the historic district of Franklin, Tennessee. Located in an old hardware store warehouse, this bakery has a reputation for delicious breads and desserts and is a great meeting place for breakfast, lunch, or just coffee and conversation. The bakery turned quick service restaurant is now open evenings on the weekends and features Saturday night music from local Nashville songwriters and artists.

Back to these brownies…they are worth the effort and will feed – and impress – a large group. Enjoy!

P.S. I’m searching for a copy of Merridee’s Cookbook (no longer available on their online store). If you can help me with this quest, please comment on this post!
