Chocolate Mint Brownies

Chocolate Mint Brownies

1 1/2 c. melted butter
3/4 c. cocoa
3 c. sugar
6 eggs, beaten
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
3/4 tsp salt
2 1/4 c. sifted flour

3/4 c. butter, softened
3 T. milk
3 c. powdered sugar
1 1/2 tsp. peppermint extract
green food coloring, optional

Chocolate layer:
2 1/4 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips
3/4 c. butter

Whisk together melted butter and cocoa. Add sugar, eggs, vanilla and salt. Mix well, then stir in flour by hand. Do not over-mix. Spread in greased 12x17-inch cookie sheet and bake at 350 for 25-30 min. Cool and then put in the freezer for 20 min. For frosting, mix butter, milk, powdered sugar and extract. Can color with green (or red) food coloring if desired. Frost brownies and then put in freezer for another 20 min. Melt chocolate chips and butter in a double boiler and spread on top of the frosting layer. Freeze another 20 min to set.
