Mint Brownies

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!!


We need a recipe for today that can signify that spring is here.

We need to think green.

The recipe for today comes from my aunt by way of Grandma’s recipe file and wow – are they good!

Mint Brownies

So good.

These are one of my favorites.

Here is the recipe as I made them:

Mint Brownies

Make brownies and let cool.

I made the Brownies recipe that I made for Plenty Sweet Life in November.

You can find the recipe here.

For the green layer:

3/4 cup butter (I don’t use margarine)

3 cups powdered sugar

1 Tablespoon milk

1 1/2 teaspoons peppermint extract

Green food coloring

Cream together and spread on top of the brownies.


For the chocolate layer:

1 1/2 cup chocolate chips

1 cup butter

Melt together, blend, and spread on top of green layer.

Chill until firm.


I love that the green layer is creamy and easy to spread.


I love the glossy chocolate top layer.


I just love these brownies!


Thanks, Susan, for another easy, so good recipe!!

Think green, everyone!

Spring really is coming.


It is.
