Grandpa's Mint Brownies

The Menu:
Grandpa's Mint Brownies

The Original Recipe:
I saw these on Triedandtruecookingwithheidi.blog and I knew I HAD to make them! Chocolate and Mint - what could be better than that combination? Afterall, one of my favorite all time, can't get enough of, candies are Jr. Mints. I could eat them daily (should I admit that I have?) These are super good, and if you don't have the time to make the brownies from scratch, you could easily use a box mix and just add the toppings. Ok, I need to go have a peice for breakfast now...


GRANDPA'S MINT BROWNIES


Brownie

1 cup sugar

1/2 cup margarine or butter

4 eggs

1 cup flour (unsifted)

1/2 tsp. salt

1 can chocolate syrup (16 oz)

1 tsp vanilla

Frosting

2 cups powdered sugar

few drops peppermint extract ( I added 1/2 tsp.)

1/2 cup margarine or butter

green food coloring.

Topping

1 cup chocolate chips

6 TBSP margarine or butter



Mix the above brownie ingredients and pour into a greased 9X13 pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes and cool completely. Mix the above frosting ingredients and ice the cooled brownie layer. Refrigerate. While chilling, melt 1 cup chocolate chips and 6 Tbsp. margarine or butter. Stir, cool for five minutes then pour over icing layer. Cool and cut into small pieces (they are VERY rich!)

I'm so glad you tried and like the brownies. You are right, they would be very easy to make using a boxed mix... why didn't I think of that :) I like boxed mix brownies better than homemade ones most of the time anyway.
