The Only Mint Chocolate Brownies Recipe You'll Need

Seriously! Throw away all of your mint brownie recipes. This recipe card will soon be tattered, stained and well-used like mine. I think the frosting alone sets this apart from any other imitators :) 

Mint Chocolate Brownies

1 1/2 c. butter
3/4 c. cocoa
4 T honey
6 eggs
3 1/2 c. sugar
2 2/3 c. flour
3/4 T baking powder
3/4 t. salt

melt butter and mix in cocoa. Allow to cool. Add honey, eggs, sugar, flour, baking powder, and salt. Mix well. add nuts. Pour batter into a greased sheet pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes

Mint Icing:
7 1/2 T butter
dash of salt
4 1/2 T milk
1 1/2 T light corn syrup
3 1/2 c. powdered sugar
3/4 tsp. mint extract
3 drops food coloring

Soften butter. Add salt, corn syrup, and powdered sugar. Beat until smooth and fluffy. Add mint extract and food coloring. Mix. Add milk gradually until the consistency is a little thinner than cake frosting. Spread over brownies. I like to pop this pan into the freezer while I do the next step so the chocolate frosting will glide over more easily.

Chocolate Frosting

3/4 cube butter, softened
4 1/2 ounces cream cheese
5 1/2 c. powdered sugar
1 1/2 t. vanilla
3 heaping T of cocoa
3 3/4 T warm milk

Cream butter, cream cheese and sugar. Add vanilla, cocoa and milk. You may want to add more milk to make it creamier. 
Once mixed thoroughly, spread the frosting on top of the mint icing.
