Easy Mint Brownies

Did someone say brownies??? Mmmmmm! We LOVE brownies, especially mint ones! This recipe couldn't get any EASIER either. The trick is a good store-bought or pre-made mix. The MINT frosting makes it taste homemade and delicious. Oooooh, and don't forget to top it with the CHOCOLATE ganache. That part makes them extra special!

Easy Mint Brownies 
1 bag Betty Crocker Fudge Brownie Mix, prepared as directed in an 8 x 8 pan
2 1/2 tablespoons butter, room temp
Dash of salt
1/2 tablespoon light corn syrup
1 cup + 3 tablespoons powdered sugar
1/4 teaspoon mint extract
1 1/2 tablespoons milk 
Green or blue food coloring
1/2 cup or so milk chocolate chips
3 tablespoons whipping cream

Prepare the brownies and then let them cool in the pan completely.

In a bowl, beat together the butter, salt, corn syrup, powdered sugar, mint extract, and milk until smooth. Stir in the food coloring until desired color is reached. Spread mint frosting over cooled brownies.

In a small bowl, combine the chocolate chips and cream. Heat in the microwave for 15 seconds and stir. Heat for 10 to 15 seconds more and then stir until smooth. Spread over mint frosting and then refrigerate until ready to serve.

TIP: Cut brownies with a plastic knife to avoid ripping them all to pieces! You can also use flavorings other than mint. Try raspberry, strawberry, orange, or even coconut. All will be delicious—just make sure to color them with food coloring accordingly!
