There is nothing like a rich chocolate brownie. Unless that brownie has a layer of mint of course. These three layer brownies are 1 part delicious homemade brownie, 1 part mint frosting and 1 part chocolate topping. Together they made the most amazing, rich and decadent chocolate brownie. They truly are brownie perfection.
These brownies are made in three steps. Each of the steps is pretty darn simple, it just needs time to set in between, so I like to make them when I am home most of the day doing other things.
The first step is a rich chocolate home made brownie.
- 1 c. butter
- 2/3 c. cocoa powder
- 2 c. sugar
- 4 eggs
- 1 1/2 c. flour
Melt the butter. Mix the butter with the cocoa and sugar. Add the eggs slowly, making sure to mix each one in. Then add the flour and mix well again. Pour batter into a 9x13 greased pan. Bake at 350 for about 22-25 minutes.
Next comes the creamy frosting.
- 1/2 c. butter softened
- 1 pound of powdered sugar
- 2 tbsp. milk
- 1/2 tsp mint extract
- green food coloring
Mix together the powdered sugar and softened butter. Add the milk while mixing. Add the extract and enough food coloring to get your desired color. Spread on your cooked brownies and refrigerate until set.
Last another layer of chocolate for good measure.
- 1 1/2 c. milk chocolate chips
- 1/2 c. butter
