Layered Mint Chocolate Brownies
from Annette and Worldwide Ward Cookbook
1 cup butter, melted
2/3 cup cocoa powder
2 cups sugar
1-1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 lb. powdered sugar
1-3 TBS. Milk
1/2 tsp. mint extract
Green food coloring
1-1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup butter
1. Brownie: Mix butter, cocoa and sugar; add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each one. Stir in flour. Spread into a greased 9x13 in baking pan. Bake at 350℉ for 25 minutes. Let cool completely.
2. Mint Frosting: Mix butter and powdered sugar. Add only enough milk to make a smooth consistency. Add mint extract and enough food coloring for a light green color. Frosting will be thick. Spread over brownie layer. Refrigerate until firm.
3. Chocolate topping: Melt chocolate chips and butter in microwave for 2-3 minutes. Stir well to combine. Pour over frosted brownies, covering frosting completely. Refrigerate until topping is set and hardened.
4. Let brownie sit at room temperature for 10 minutes before cutting. Cut into 24 small squares with a sharp knife.
