Cooking Thursday

Sandra is once again hosting Cooking Thursday. Stop over at Diary of a SAHM to check out the recipes others are sharing.

I got this recipe from my sister Cheri. These brownies are easy to make and are so good!

French Cream Mint Brownies
1 pkg brownie mix

1/2 c. margarine softened
2 c. powdered sugar
1 T. milk
1 tsp. peppermint extract
1 drop green food coloring if wanted (I do use this and the filling is a light green, although it doesn't show in the picture)

1/2 c. margarine
6 oz. chocolate chips

Prepare brownie mix for a 9x13 pan as directed on package and bake.
For cream filling, mix together margarine and powdered sugar. Blend in milk, peppermint extract and green food coloring. Spread filling over cooled brownies. Refrigerate until firm.
For frosting, melt butter with chocolate chips and pour evenly over filling layer. Chill approximately 30 minutes. Cut into squares and return to refrigerator until firm. Serve chilled. Chocolate will crack if cut before it is chilled.

*I've made these for several gatherings and people always ask for the recipe, so I don't think you will be disappointed if you try them!

I can already taste them just reading the recipe! We're going away for a couple of weeks, but I'm going to copy this and put in the recipe section of my blog for making when we get back. Thanks!

Sandra said... I am trying so hard to watch what I eat, but I may just have to fall off the wagon for these.

Thanks Mari :)
