Mint Brownies To Die For

Mint brownies make perfect Christmas goodies, but they are so amazing that I make them all year long. And to say they are a huge hit is an understatement. They are inhaled wherever I take them!
This makes a large batch, so I usually take them to potlucks, parties, or church suppers. If you don’t have a similar function to take them to, you could cut the recipe in half. I didn’t do it for you because I am horrible at math and I didn’t want to have to figure out what half of 3/4 cup is.
Your other option of course is to make the whole batch and share them with friends. They will bow down and kiss your feet adore you. Share them with strangers and they will become your new best friends. They are that good!

Mint Brownies

3 cups sugar
3 cups flour
3/4-1 cup cocoa
1 1/2 tsp salt
6 eggs
1 1/2 cups oil
3/4 cup milk
Combine all ingredients in order listed and mix till smooth. Pour into a well greased 15×10″ jelly roll pan. Bake at 350 for about 20-25 minutes. Cool completely.
Mint Layer:
1/2 cup soft butter
4 cups powdered sugar
1-2 tsp peppermint extract (I use 2 because I like them really minty.)
2 Tbsp water (approximately)
Pinch of salt
A few drops of green food coloring
Beat till smooth and spread evenly over brownies. Chill for a few minutes to set.

Chocolate topping:
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
6 Tbsp butter
Melt butter in glass bowl in microwave. Add chips and cook at 50% power, stirring every 30 seconds, until melted and smooth. Drizzle or spread over mint layer. Chill for 1 hour.

Notes:
-If you don’t want to make mint brownies, you can just use the base and add chocolate frosting.
