Mint Chocolate Brownies

Mint Chocolate Brownies
Makes 24 brownies

1 box Betty Crocker Dark Chocolate cake mix
2 tbsp brown sugar
2 eggs
1/3 cup oil
2 tbsp water
4 oz. Andes crème de menthe baking chips
6 oz. semisweet chocolate morsels
1 can vanilla frosting
¼ tsp green food color

Preheat oven to 350. In a large mixing bowl, add cake mix, eggs, oil, and water together. Use mixer until a dough forms. Stir in morsels and baking chips. Add to rectangular dish sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. Bake for 20 minutes until set in the middle. Use tooth pick to ensure the middle is cooked. While brownies bake, mix together vanilla frosting and food color until it’s green. Once brownies are done, add frosting on top.

Nutritional Information: Again, NOT healthified, but fun and festive nonetheless. :)

Review: These were SO minty fresh - loved that. I only had a small bite of one and it was like danger danger danger! They were super thick and chocolatey, and the andes added minty crunch. The frosting was such a gluttenous add but they weren't "green enough" without it so why not? They went FAST. I think I should have worked on the presentation, and they would look cute with flags (which I felt were too much of a disconnect with a "beer fest" hehe.) Great recipe though - could see myself making it again for an event!
