Mint Chocolate Frosted Brownies
- 1 box brownie mix prepare batter according to box directions
- 16 ounce bag chocolate mint hard candy
- 2 cups powdered sugar
- 1/2 stick (4 Tablespoons) butter softened
- 1 teaspoon peppermint extract
- 3 drops green food coloring
- 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1 Tablespoon butter
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F
- Prepare the brownie batter per the box directions.
- Unwrap and roughly chop the chocolate mint candies, mix half into the brownie batter.
- Pour the brownie batter into pan and bake according to box instructions, about 25 minutes.
- Allow the brownies to fully cool.
For the Frosting:
- Use an electric mixer to whip the butter until smooth.
- Add half of the powdered sugar and the peppermint extract, mix until fully combined with the mixer.
- Fold in the remaining powder sugar and food coloring, then mix until smooth. Note, if frosting seems too thick, add a dash of milk.
- Spread the frosting over the cooled brownies.
For the Chocolate Drizzle:
- In a microwave safe dish, melt the butter and chocolate chips and mix until smooth. Spoon into a pastry or zip-top bag.
- Snip the corner/tip and drizzle all over frosting.
