Melt in your mouth MINT BROWNIES

If you look at our blog very often, you know that I ADORE anything chocolate/mint...I just don't think that you CAN go wrong when combining these two luscious flavors, you just can't. I came across this recipe and tried it out just because I thought it would make for a yummy treat for the family, I didn't plan on posting it because I have already posted a mint brownie recipe that I LOVE...so why post another one, right?! Well, I will tell you why...because they are both CRAZY GOOD, "4 star" kind of good....and thats why they both have a special spot on our blog. This one is quite a bit different from the other "Mint Brownie" recipe that I posted, yet equally as scrumptious! I will make them both often I'm afraid!! Ohhhhhhhhh how I hope you try these, they are perfect for that big summer barbecue or just because, sadly enough...I don't need an excuse to make a treat...just the simple fact that they sound good is reason enough for me.

Melt in your mouth MINT BROWNIES
2 C. BUTTER, melted
3/4 c. cocoa
2 1/4 c. sugar
6 eggs, beaten

Combine and mix well, add to the following:

2 c. flour
1/4 t. salt
3 t. vanilla

Bake in a TEXAS sheet cake pan OR two 9x13" baking pans. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes (mine took closer to 22 minutes, so watch yours) OR if you use 2- 9x13" cook for 25-30 minutes. DON'T over bake, this will cause them to dry out. Cool completely. Chill.

Frosting:

4 c. powdered sugar
1/2 c. butter, melted
5 T. milk
10 drops green food coloring
4 t. mint extract

Mix all ingredient until well blended. Spread frosting on chilled brownies, then chill again. Melt
a bag of chocolate chips and spread for top layer. Chill. Cut into squares and serve with a scoop of chocolate chip mint ice cream!
