I Think I'm Obsessed............

With mint and chocolate...in fact I know that I'm obsessed!! I tried yet another minty brownie recipe! This time the minty flavor was planted on top instead of in the center!!

Gather up your ingredients: Powdered sugar, Peppermint Extract, green food coloring, sugar, flower, semi sweet baking chocolate, chocolate chips, salt, vanilla, butter, eggs, flour, and milk!


First step melt the chocolate! I again just melted them in the microwave!


Yummy! So creamy!

Next drop in your eggs!


And last but not least your flour, salt, and sugar


Make sure to mix this all together really well!


They recommened lining your 8x8 baking pan with foil and then spraying that foil with baking spray! This will make it easier to remove the brownies from the pan!! And yes it really does!


Pour in the batter then pop it into your oven!


While these were baking I chose to get started on the mint layer of frosting!
Combine your food coloring, extract, and butter.

Mix it all together with confectioners sugar (a.k.a powdered sugar)


Yum isn't that looking really good?


Once you've removed your brownies from the oven make sure to let them cool. I let them cool overnight. Then remove the foil from them, place on a platter or in my case a cutting board.


Spread the minty frosting over the top and then drizzle some chocolate over the top. I actually just used chocolate syrup that you'd use to make chocolate milk or to put on ice cream.


Cut them up and enjoy!


I was actually extremely worried about the brownies because they just didn't seem to be baking all the way but they turned out way better than the frosting!


The frosting turned out like crap. It didn't mix well and for some reason I can NEVER get frosting right. But despite the frosting these were DELISH!! I was suprised at how good the made from scratch brownies turned out!! I will defintiely be making these again but next time I will probably just buy some vanilla frosting and add in the mint!!!

Iknow what you mean about the frosting. But even though mine didn't look cookbook cover material, it still tasted excellent.
I am sure yours did too.
