Mint Brownies

(I forgot to take a picture, so this is what is left!)

I made these brownies for my nephew's baptism and they were a huge hit! 4 different people asked for the recipe. They're pretty easy to make! If you love mint, you must try these! With 5 sticks of butter, they're definitely not a low-fat treat! Sorry! :)

6 eggs
3 c. sugar
5 squares unsweetened chocolate
1 1/2 c. butter
3 Tbsp. peppermint extract
2 1/4 c. flour

Beat eggs and sugar. In a small sauce pan, melt butter and chocolate squares. Stir in peppermint extract then add to the egg/sugar mixture. Add flour and mix well. Grease and flour a cookie sheet. Pour brownie mix on cookie sheet and bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes. Take out of oven and put in fridge for 15 minutes or until cooled.

10 Tbsp. butter
5 c. powered sugar
5 tsp. peppermint extract
5-7 Tbsp. milk

Cream all ingredients together. Spread over cooled brownies. Put back in fridge for 10-15 minutes.

6 Tbsp. butter
3 squares unsweetened chocolate

Melt in saucepan and drizzle on top of brownies. Put brownies back in fridge to set up and take out 20 minutes before serving. I cut them in triangles to serve.
