Baptism Brownies

1. Prepare a 9X13” pan of brownies from any box mix of your liking. (Usually buy what is on sale and dark chocolate but any flavor will work.)

2. Cool brownies completely then mix together middle layer and spread on top:

½ C. Butter
4 T. Milk
1 ½ t. Peppermint extract
4+ C. Powdered sugar
Green food coloring

3. Refrigerate until cool then spread final layer :
8 T. Melted Butter
8 oz. Semi-sweet chocolate chips

4. Refrigerate until chocolate is set and cut.

Notes:
o This recipe freezes well.
o The original recipe calls for making brownies from scratch.
(Way too complicated because that’s not the part that
people care about.)
o The original recipe was made to cover a 10X15” pan
so the layers might be a little thick. You can cut the recipe
by 1/3 and it is about right. But then some of us like more frosting :o)
o I’ve learned recently that you can mix together 2 boxes of
brownies and they will fill a large cookie sheet and then
the frosting proportions would be about right.
o I’ve never met anyone who didn’t love these! (Unless they
couldn’t eat them due to dietary restrictions.) This is a foolproof recipe!

This is always everyone's favorite dessert at a party and can be cut long and narrow so you can have at least two or three!!
