Cooking Thursday

This is a recipe I got from my sister Cheri.  If you want a recipe to doctor up a store bought brownie mix, this is the recipe for you.  These are delicious!


French Cream Mint Brownies
1 pkg brownie mix
1/2 c. butter, softened
2 c. powdered sugar
1 T. milk
1 tsp. peppermint extract
1 drop green food coloring if desired

Frosting:
1/2 c. butter
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.

Hey I have a birthday this weekend and since we're going out of town, we're having my party tonight ... guess what I asked for instead of cake ... that's right, those chocolate streusel bars of yours!!!! Audrey makes them so perfectly, it's just too much. Also we tried your hot taco dip to RAVE reviews. Keep these recipes coming, my dear friend! xoxo
