Mint Cream Cheese Brownies

8 eggs
2 cups butter, melted
4 cups sugar
3 cups flour
1/2 cup cocoa
4 tsp. vanilla
2 pinch salt

Mint Topping:
8 oz. cream cheese
1/2 cup heavy cream or milk
1 tsp. mint extract
1 lb. powdered sugar

1/2 cup butter, melted
1/4 cup cocoa
1 lb. powdered sugar
1/4 cup heavy cream or milk
1 dash salt

1.  To make the brownies:  Mix cocoa, sugar, and melted butter.  (Don't use an electric mixer just use a wooden spoon or they are pretty flat.)

2.  Add eggs 1 at a time and beat well after each addition.

3.  Add salt, flour, and vanilla. Pour into a greased cookie sheet 12x17 inch. Bake at 350 for 25 to 30 minutes.  Let cool completely.

4.  Make the mint topping:  Mix the cream cheese, cream, mint extract, and powdered sugar together until smooth. Spread on the cooled brownies. Put in freezer until mint layer has firmed up.

5.  Make the frosting:  Mix the butter and cocoa together.  Add the powdered sugar, salt and cream mix until smooth. Spread the chocolate frosting on the mint layer.
