    Pro: these are a delicious brownie and the basil adds a really lovely herbal note. Several guessed it was mint, and it’s a refreshing add. My husband immediately went back for seconds, and both adults and kids enjoyed them. Con: I struggled to get these done over the course of ten hours with a crabby three year old singing in my kitchen. The cooling to room temp x2 and the chilling for one hour x3...it’s just a lot of steps and I’m not 100% sure the payoff is there, as enjoyable as they are.
