My Favorite Brownies (right now at this time in my life)

I always have to make a Sunday treat. I just can't get through a Sunday evening without something delicious. Here are my favorite brownies. I got this recipe from a lady at church. The recipe is a 3 step process but it is WORTH IT!

Grasshopper brownies

2 boxes brownie mix

Mint Frosting:
4 cups powdered sugar

1 cup soft butter

2 Tbsp. water

1 1/2 tsp. peppermint extract

4 drops green food coloring

Chocolate Topping:

12 ounces semisweet chocolate chips
3/4 cup butter

To make the Brownies follow the recipe for "cake-like" brownies. Or if their isn't one, add 3 more eggs. Pour into a large, greased cookie sheet, bake and let cool completely

To make the mint frosting, combine powdered sugar, butter, water, peppermint extract and food coloring. Mix. Spread over cooled brownies and refrigerate until hard on top.

3) To make chocolate topping microwave chocolate chips and butter for 2 minutes. Stir until all chocolate chips are melted and the mixture is smooth. Add 1-2 tsp. peppermint extract. As soon as this mixture thickens and is no longer hot, spread over mint topping on brownies. Put back into the refrigerator until hard.

4) Enjoy! This batch feeds a lot by the way.

What a coincidence... We just ate these same brownies in YW today!
I love to eat them, I just never get around to actually making them. Maybe that's a good thing?

Denae, someone just told me that these are fantastic frozen, so yo precut them and then store them in the freezer like peppermint patties.r

This reminds me of when I was dating my husband... his family are all big mint brownie fans. One of his brothers told me they used toothpaste to make the mint part and I believe him! Oh man, was I young.
