Last night I made Chocolate Mint Brownies but the brownie recipe I used was dry. My kids like brownies from a box (there, I said it). So next time I will make the box brownies and add these two layers.
Mint Brownie Topping
2 c. powdered sugar
2Tbsp heavy cream
½ c. butter softened
1 tsp peppermint extract
A few drops of green food coloring
2 1-oz squares of semi-sweet chocolate
2 Tbsp butter
To prepare the peppermint layer, cream together the powdered sugar, cream, butter and extract. Tint with green food coloring. Frost brownie base with this mixture and refrigerate until firm.
Chocolate Glaze: melt together the chocolate and butter. Spread gently over the cold frosting. The glaze will be thin. Cool until glaze hardens. Cut into squares.
