Mint Brownies

 These are the most delicious Brownies EVER!  I made them for St. Paddy's Day but will make them again and again before next St. Paddy's Day!  






Brownies:
1 cup all-purpose flour
½ cup cocoa
½ teaspoon salt
1 cup butter (2 sticks)
2 cups granulated sugar
4 eggs
½ cup chocolate chips (milk, white or mint)


Frosting:
4 T butter
2 cups confectioner’s sugar
4 T cream
½ teaspoon peppermint extract
Green food coloring


Glaze:
½ cup chocolate chips (milk, white or mint)
2 T butter


Brownies:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 9”X13” pan with foil. Spray lightly with cooking spray.
In a medium mixing bowl combine flour, cocoa and salt. Set aside. Melt the butter. In large mixing bowl add the melted butter and sugar, stirring well to combine. Blend in eggs until frothy.
Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix well. Gently stir in the chocolate chips. Pour into the prepared pan and bake for 35 minutes, until the brownies are set in the middle and pull away from the sides slightly. Do not over-bake. Allow brownies to cool completely before frosting.


Frosting:
Beat together 4 T. of butter, confectioner’s sugar, mint extract and cream. Add one drop of green food coloring and mix well. Frost brownies and refrigerate for one hour.


Glaze:
Melt chocolate chips and butter in small saucepan on stovetop or in microwave. Drizzle over mint frosting. Chill for another half hour. 


Cut and serve!


Enjoy!!!
