Midnight Mint Brownies

I had a request to try and make these brownies by both my mum and Neil. They are a variation on Company’s Coming midnight mint squares. Instead of a coconut/nut base I used a brownie like at Starbucks. Next time I would use a thicker layer of chocolate on top so for now they are a work in progress.

Midnight Mint Brownies (adapted from Company’s Coming)

Brownie Layer

2 eggs

1 cup granulated sugar

3/4 cup all purpose flour

1 pinch salt

1/4 cup cocoa

1/2 cup butter or margarine

Beat eggs until frothy. Add sugar, flour, salt. Melt while stirring, butter and cocoa. Stir well. Spread into a greased 8×8 inch pan. (I used about 2/3rds of the batter since this recipe is adapted from one that had two layers.) Bake at 350 for around 15 minutes or until a tester comes out clean.

Mint Layer

1/4 cup butter or margarine

3 tablespoons milk

1 teaspoon peppermint flavouring

2 cups of icing sugar

green food colouring

Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Mix well adding a few drops more liquid if needed for easy spreading. Tint a pretty green. Spread over cooled brownie layer. Allow to set.

Chocolate layer

1 cup of milk chocolate chips

Melt chips in a saucepan over low heat. Spread over second layer. Chill and store in refrigerator.
