mint brownies

Don't these make your mouth water??? sooooo yummy. I kinda played around with a few recipes.
anywho I've had some requests to post it so here it is:

2 C. Sugar
1 C. Butter
4 Eggs

cream until fluffy then add:

2 C. flour
1/2 C. cocoa
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla
2 Tbsp milk

mix well then bake at 350 for 30-45 min in a 9x13 pan.
(I did do it in the 9x13 but i think next time i'll do a cookie sheet as i like them a little smaller)

Cool for about an hour. you can speed it up in the fridge. then frost with the mint icing.

Mint Icing:

3 Tbsp butter
2 Tbsp milk
1 1/2 C. powdered sugar ( i used closer to 3-4 C)
2-3 drops mint flavoring
green food coloring

Mix well. I added more sugar so it was thicker like a frosting instead of runny.

Drizzle with chocolate

Chocolate Drizzle:

3 Tbsp butter
1/2 C. choc chips ( I used milk)

Melt carefully in microwave. Do 30 sec intervals and stir after each until completely melted. Cool slightly. I just used a fork and kinda drizzled it all over the mint.

Then take some andes mints. I used about 15. I used my Kitchen Aid Food Chopper and chopped them up. THen i just took a handful and sprinkled it all over the brownies.
There you have it!!! BEWARE!!! these are very hard to resist!!!

Pin It!
