Peppermint Brownies

This is a recipe that my mother-in-law gave me at my wedding shower. I've made it hundreds of times and I always get asked for the recipe.

So here it is.

Peppermint Brownies

Brownie mix for 9x13 pan

Frosting - 3 c powdered sugar, 3 T cream, 6 T melted butter, 1 t peppermint extract (or to taste), green food coloring

Topping - 5 oz unsweetened chocolate, 6 T butter

Bake your favorite brownie mix according to package directions in a 9" x 13" pan. Cool completely.

For the frosting, mix together powdered sugar, cream, and melted butter. Add peppermint extract , a few drops at a time, until flavor is right. Tint pale green. Frost brownies when they have cooled. Refrigerate. 

For the topping, melt together chocolate and butter. Pour over frosted brownies; tilt pan to spread topping over frosting evenly. Refrigerate until topping is solid. Cut into squares.
