Grasshopper Brownies

These are dangerous. I made them last night and ate one. Now I haven't eaten another for fear I'll eat the whole pan! They're delicious and super easy to achieve. These are basically brownies with mint icing and a chocolate glaze on top... divine.

First you start with a pan of (half a batch) One Bowl Brownies:

And here's the delicious mint icing:

And here are the brownies iced:

And with the glaze:

Grasshopper Brownies

1/2 Batch of One-Bowl Brownies

Mint Icing
-1/4 cup butter
-1-2 cups confectioner's sugar
-1 teaspoon mint extract
Cream together the ingredients, adjusting the sugar and milk until you get the consistency you would like.

Chocolate Glaze
-3 tablespoons chocolate chips (semi-sweet)
-1/2 teaspoon corn syrup
-2 tablespoons butter
Melt together in microwave, then drizzle over the brownies.

Freeze the brownies once done so that they harden up and are easier to cut. It also makes it easier if you bake the brownies in parchment paper- it comes off like magic.

If you want to make a full 9''x13'' pan, just double the recipe!

Enjoy these!

Savor it!
love, rue
