These are a little messy looking but you get the idea. They are a layered mint brownie. My original recipe calls them Cream de Mint Brownies but I call them Hip Spreadinlicious Brownies since I always tend to put on a couple of pounds shortly after I make these. SOOOO totally worth it though! I love that these have some green in them for St. Patrick's Day celebrations too.
Here's a recipe if ya'll want to try it out:
1 c. flour
1 c. margarine
1 c. sugar
1 1/2 c. Hershey's syrup (16 oz. can)
Beat until smooth.
Bake the brownie layer @ 350 degrees for 20-25 min. in a 13x9 pan. Cool.
2 c. powdered sugar
1/2 - 3/4 tsp. peppermint extract
1/2 c. butter
green food coloring
1 Tbsp. water
Beat all of these ingredients until smooth and then spread on the cooled brownie base. Refrigerate.
1 c. chocolate chips
6 Tbsp. butter
I usually melt this in the microwave 15-30 seconds at a time until melted and then spread over the chilled cream layer. Keep chilled until serving.
If you want to speed things up a bit, you can use a boxed brownie mix. However, they aren't quite as pretty when cut up. This time around I was just making the brownies for my family so I did use the boxed mix. Not as pretty but every bit as AWE-SOME!
Can you tell I'm not much of a photographer? I really gotta work on that! It's #20 on my list of things to do. Pretty high priority, huh?
You get the idea though, right? I promise if you try these you'll become as crazy about them as I am. That's why I only make them once in awhile...otherwise my hips wouldn't fit through the door!
