BYU Mint Brownie Recipe

I'm taking the advice of my good friend Kelli, and posting a recipe that people over on her blog seem to love! And I'll vouch for these beauties myself. If you are any type of a brownie person then you must try these. They are.... divine.

BYU Mint Brownies

Makes one 9 by 13 inch pan of brownies

Prep and Cook: 90 minutes Cool: 1 Hour

1 c. Margarine
1/2 c. Cocoa
2 Tbsp. Honey
4 Eggs
2 c. Sugar
1 3/4 c. Flour
1/2 Tbsp. Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Salt
1 c. Chopped Walnuts
12 oz. Chocolate Icing (Use your own recipe or purchase some chocolate frosting. You can also search the Internet for Chocolate Icing recipes.)

Mint Icing
5 Tbsp. Margarine
dash of salt
3 Tbsp. Milk
1 Tbsp. Light Corn Syrup
2 1/3 c. Powdered Sugar
1/2 tsp. Mint Extract
1-2 Drops Green Food Coloring

1. Melt margarine 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 9 by 13 inch baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes. Cool.

2. Prepare mint icing: Soften margarine. 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.

3. Spread mint icing over brownies. Place brownies in the freezer for a short time to stiffen the icing. Remove from freezer and carefully add a layer of chocolate icing.

This recipe is from the Sugar-n-Spice, Cougareat Food Court

I am not much of a brownie lover or chocolate for that matter, but my husband is going to love me for making these. Thanks

Those look SOOOO good! I'm going to have to try those. My only problem is I don't have mint extract. I hate being pregnant, everything looks so good.

Umm, yummy! I usually don't make anything that has more than 5 ingredients, but I might just give this a try!

Gross! Okay, just the nuts are gross. Otherwise it looks pretty good.
