Chocolate Mint Brownies

Here’s an easy, fun and yummy snack for your Shamrock Spectacular!

Ingredients:

  • 1 18-oz box brownie mix, plus water, oil & eggs to make as directed
  • 2/3 cup mint chocolate chips
  • parchment paper to line pan
  • 1/3 cup butter, softened
  • 4 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1 Tbs milk
  • 1/2 tsp mint extract
  • green food coloring (optional*)
  • 1/3 cup mint chocolate chips
  • optional sprinkles

Prep Time: 20 minutes Bake Time: 33-36 minutes

Preheat oven to 350* and line a 9×9″ baking pan with parchment paper. Let the edges of paper go beyond pan by 1″ so you can lift the brownies out after baking. In a large bowl, mix brownie batter as directed on box. After mixing, fold in 2/3 cup mint chocolate chips. Pour batter evenly into prepared pan. Bake for 33-36 minutes, until toothpick inserted in center comes out almost clean. Cool brownies completely before frosting.

While brownies are cooling, make the frosting:

Blend the softened butter and cream cheese, then add the powdered sugar, milk, mint extract, and enough green food coloring for desired shade. (*My family does not eat artificial coloring, but I think white mint frosting is fine!) Mix until smooth. Spread frosting over brownies and sprinkle 1/3 cup mint chocolate chips over the frosting. If desired, sprinkle with sprinkles or decorating sugar. Cut into bars or squares and enjoy!

Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates.

Deuteronomy 6:4-9
