Chocolate Mint Brownies

I realize that the season for green might just be over, but
I can't get enough of these chocolate mint brownies!

I actually made these for our family's St. Patrick's Day dinner, and I am still enjoying each and every sweet morsel! Have I mentioned that my husband doesn't eat sweets?  But I love baking and have one mean sweet tooth, which means I end up eating way more than my fair share of the yummy things I bake!
I have actually been on the hunt for the perfect mint brownie recipe for quite some time now.  My friend recommended this recipe, and I must say I have finally found a winner!!

CHOCOLATE MINT BROWNIES

Brownie layer
1 c. butter
5 T. cocoa
4 eggs
2 c. sugar
1 1/2 c. flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1 T. peppermint flavoring

Melt the butter and cocoa together. Stir in eggs and sugar. Add flour, salt, and peppermint. Bake in a greased 9x13" pan at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes. Cool completely.

Mint Frosting
2 c. powdered sugar
2 T. evaporated milk
6 T. butter
1/2 tsp. peppermint
4 drops green food coloring

Mix all frosting ingredients until creamy and spread onto brownies. Refrigerate for one hour.

Glaze topping
6 T. butter
1 c. chocolate chips

Melt together and then pour gently over green frosting. Refrigerate again.


If you try out this recipe, I promise you:  You'll be licking your fingers!

    Those look absolutely delicious! Too bad I just started a diet with my husband. Heart issues you know? Bummer. Maybe I can pretend they are for the kids and sneak in a few bites. :)

    Love that you bake for yourself – since the hubs doesn't eat um! That would be me – so maybe I just need to start baking for me so I can try this stuff out! I also love the "teacher" in your posts with your DJ Inkers clip art "print here" button! Makes me smile! Come link up your brownies at Tuesday Time Out!
