This recipe is for some awesome mint brownies. I have 3 wonderful sisters and my Mom raised all of us to Love cooking and love eating, so in turn we all love to share recipes. This recipe came from my sister Katie, she combined a few recipes into one and came up with some stellar brownies. I only slightly adapted it, she likes to cover all of the brownies with the chocolate chips, where as I like mine only drizzled.
Another amazing thing my sister Katie does with this amazing frosting is she make Homemade Oreos and then for the filling she puts this mint frosting instead of the regular stuff and it makes a great mint cookie!! Must try that!
2 cups sugar
1 cup butter
1/3 cup cocoa
4 eggs, hand beaten
1 1/2 cup flour
1/2 tsp salt
Melt sugar, butter, and cocoa together in microwave. Stir to combine and then cool slightly. Add eggs, flour, and salt and stir to combine. Bake in a 9x13" pan in a 350 degree oven for 25 minutes.
Cool completely and then frost with:
3/4 cup butter
1 pound powdered sugar (apprx 4 cups)
3 tsp milk
1 tsp peppermint extract (please do not use mint, that makes them taste like toothpaste, make sure it is peppermint!)
green food coloring
Mix ingredients together with a hand mixer until smooth and creamy. Frost cool brownies.
1/2 cup milk chocolate chips melted
Melt chocolate chips, place melted chocolate in a zip lock bag, twist closed, and cut a small hole in the corner of the bag and drizzle the chocolate over the brownie.
I really like my mint brownies cold...that is just me, but they are really good with the mint frosting a little bit more firm. Yummy!
