Merry Mint Brownies

Y'all, I am OBSESSED with these brownies. They are the perfect thing to bring to a Christmas party, to give to neighbors and friends, or just enjoy all by yourself :) I found out about the recipe from Laura, and I tweaked them a bit and now I'm addicted. It's a problem.

I made a batch for Doug's office Christmas party, then a batch for our Thanksgiving/Christmas celebration with my family, and I'm making another batch today for my mom's school Christmas party. And I always make sure that the baker gets to eat a few :)

Oh, and I've also renamed them from Glazed Mint Brownies to:

Merry Minton Brownies
(much more festive I think!)

Ingredients

Brownies:
1 box of brownies and required ingredients for those (usually eggs, water, and vegetable oil)

Mint Filling:
(I doubled what it called for since I use a 13x9 pan instead of a 9x9. Add powdered sugar if necessary to get the right consistency)
6 tablespoons of butter, melted
3 cups confectioners sugar
3 tablespoons milk
Around 1 1/4 teaspoon of peppermint extract (to taste)
6 drops of green food coloring

Chocolate Glaze:
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips


1. Bake the brownies. I usually let them cool before I put the mint filling on so it will set faster.

2. Mix together all of the filling ingredients and spread evenly onto brownies. Let the filling set (I stick it in the fridge for about 15 minutes)


3. Melt the chocolate chips and quickly spread it evenly. Again, I stick them in the fridge so it will set.

4. I added this step, and it is optional, but I think it adds so much flavor and beauty! I saved some of the mint filling to drizzle on top of the chocolate layer. It makes an easy recipe look a lot more fancy :)



ENJOY!
