I was hoping to get this post up before St. Patricks Day but these days, getting certain things done on time isn’t always going to happen (I have been realizing more and more lately). So if you still want to celebrate or if you want a yummy new brownie recipe, I’ve got it.
These brownies are quite scrumptious. My beautiful mama would make these occasionally for the family and it’s one of those special desserts as a child and now, as an adult, I have never forgotten. I love peppermint/ mint desserts or anything with mint ( I should say) so I love these ones! So will you too if you enjoy a nice fresh mint flavor.
Here is the recipe, and enjoy!!
Moms Mint Brownies
1 c. granulated sugar
1/2 c. melted butter
1 can hershey’s syrup (16 oz.)
1 c. flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
Using beaters, combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Beat until well blended. Bake 20 minutes in greased baking sheet at 350. Cool 10 minutes and then refrigerate 20 minutes.
2nd layer (Mint filling)
1/2 c. margarine
2 c. powdered sugar
2 TBL. water
1 tsp. peppermint or mint extract
4-5 drops of green food coloring…or a little dap of Wilsons
Using beaters, mix together well. Spread over 1st layer and refrigerate 20 minutes.
3rd layer (chocolate top)
1/2 c. butter
1 c. chocolate chips
Melt on stove top and cool for about 15 minutes after everything is smooth. Spread over 2nd layer and refrigerate for 5 minutes. Cut into little squares. (Should cut nicely). No need to over cool and no need to refrigerate after.
My little guy loves to help and wanted to include these gems of his in the pic. Legos and the hulk. They were also our helpers in the making.
And nothing like some chocolate syrup involved too…I may need to change this recipe to dark chocolate though next time. That is one of our favs in this family. So for sure, you can definitely substitute milk chocolate to dark chocolate!
1st layer…the brownies.
2nd layer…mint filling.
3rd layer…chocolate frosting
…and you’re delicious finished product!
