Mint Brownies

Bottom Layer:
  • Boxed Brownie mix (or make your own from scratch)

Bake according to directions on box. Cool completely in pan.

Mint Cream Center:
  • 2 cups Powdered Sugar
  • 1/2 cup Butter, softened
  • 1 Tbsp Water
  • 1/2 tsp Mint extract
  • Food coloring

Combine all ingredients in a bowl and beat until smooth and creamy. Spread mint cream over cooled brownies, cover and chill.

Chocolate Topping:

  • 6 Tbsp Butter
  • 1 cup Chocolate chips

In a small saucepan heat butter and chocolate chips over low until just melted. Remove from heat and stir until smooth and glossy. Spread over chilled brownies & cream. Cover, and chill until firm.

I always line my pan with foil and pull the whole thing out of the pan so they are easier to cut. I also have a cup of hot water near by to dip my knife into so they cut nicely... otherwise the chocolate topping crumbles a bit when cutting them.
