My sister Diana was coming into town and she requested that I make brownies with a mint frosting and a hard chocolate topping. These turned out really good and she really enjoyed them as well as the rest of my family, myself, and a some neighbors. They were fudgey, chocolately, minty, and really yummy!
For the Brownies:
-1 box of your favorite brownie mix for a 13x9 pan
-eggs, oil, and water called for on the box
-1 cup of andes mint pieces
Make brownies according to package directions and mix in the andes mints.
For the frosting:
-3 cups powdered sugar
-1/3 cup margarine or butter, softened
-3/4 tsp. mint extract
-1/4 cup milk
Beat the powdered sugar and margarine together. Add in the milk and mint extract and beat until it is the consistency you like. Spread frosting on cooled brownies.
For the chocolate topping:
-2 cups chocolate ( I used chopped dove dark chocolate)
-6 tablespoons butter
In the top of a double boiler, melt chocolate and butter until smooth. Spread on top of the frosted brownies. Let chocolate harden and then serve. (I think these brownies taste best cold and just out of the refrigerator!)
