Mint Chocolate Brownies
- 1 package brownie mix
- ½ cup butter, softened
- 1 ½ cups powdered sugar
- 1 tbsp. milk
- 1 tsp. peppermint extract
- 6 drops green liquid food coloring
- 2 drops yellow liquid food coloring
- Shaved thin crème de menthe chocolate mints
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line bottom and sides of an 8 inch square pan with aluminum foil, allowing 2 to 3 inches to extend over sides; lightly grease foil. Prepare brownie batter according to package directions; pour into prepared pan.
Bake at 350 degrees F according to package directions. Cool completely in pan on a wire rack (about 1 hour).
Meanwhile, beat butter and powdered sugar at medium low speed with an electric mixer until combined; add milk, peppermint extract and food colorings, beating until blended. Increase speed to medium high and beat 1 minute or until fluffy.
Lift brownies from pan, using foil sides as handles. Gently remove foil. Spread frosting evenly over brownies, and cut into 16 squares. Sprinkle with thinly shaved mints.
