BYU Mint Brownies


This recipe was adapted from the Scripture Mom blog . . . thanks for the recipe!

BROWNIE

1 c. butter
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 (optional)
12 oz. chocolate icing (your own recipe)

MINT ICING

5 Tbsp. butter
dash of salt
3 Tbsp. cream
1 Tbsp. light corn syrup
2 1/3 c. powdered sugar
1/2 tsp. mint extract
1-2 drops green food coloring

1. Melt butter and mix in cocoa. Allow to cool. Add honey, eggs, sugar, flour, baking powder, and salt. Mix well. Add nuts (optional). Pour batter into a greased 9-by-13 baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes. Cool for 1 hour.

2. Prepare mint icing: 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.

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

Oh dear. So many things to beg you to make... I feel a little guilty, keeping you so busy and everything, all for my personal pleasure. It will be hard to live with the guilt, but I'll manage.

Make these too?

Absolutely...

Have you had those apple dumplings?

No. But I want them. This is becoming obscene.
