double chocolate mint brownies
Tonight was my night to cook for the meal swap. I made French Dip, roasted veggies and these double chocolate mint brownies. They're super delicious! If you take these to a potluck I can guarantee you they'll be the first to go.
double chocolate mint brownies (simplified from a Hershey's recipe that came from my friend Erin)
Bake a box of your favorite brownie mix according to the directions on the box in a 9x13 pan. Cool completely and then spread with mint layer. Spread chocolate layer on top of mint layer.
Add 1 teaspoon mint extract and a few drops of green food coloring to any vanilla flavored tub of icing. You'll only need 1/2 tub of icing which is why I usually just double the recipe and bake the brownies on a cookie sheet with sides. If you do this, you'll need to double the ingredients in the chocolate layer.
6 tablespoons butter
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Melt the butter over the stove and add the chocolate chips; stir until smooth.
