Mint Brownies

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! While these mint brownies are not an authentic Irish recipe, they are a fun holiday treat.

1. Make a 13×9 pan of brownies, either from a mix or from scratch, and let them cool completely.

2. Use a hand mixer to cream together 1/4 c. soft butter, 2 T milk, 2 c. powdered sugar, and a dash each of peppermint extract and green food coloring. Spread the frosting over the brownies, and cool in the refrigerator for an hour.

3. In a double boiler, heat 1 T butter and 1 T unsweetened chocolate until melted, and drizzle over the frosting. Cool in the refrigerator until the top layer is completely set.
