Ingredients
  • 1 Brownie cake mix
  • ½ cup Chocolate chips {semi sweet or milk chocolate your preference}
FOR THE ICING
  • 3 cups Icing Sugar
  • ½ cup Butter
  • 2 tbsp Cream
  • ¼ - ½ tsp Mint extract
  • 5 drops Green food colouring
FOR THE DRIZZLE
  • 1/3 cup Milk chocolate chips melted
Instructions
  1. Prepare brownies according to the box directions and let completely cool
  2. To prepare icing, begin by beating the butter and 1 cup of sugar together. Slowly add the remaining cups. The icing should be stiff, so add the mint extract first, the food coloring and then the cream in ½ tablespoon increments until the desired consistency is reached.
  3. Ice the brownies, smooth out the top and freeze for 2 hours
  4. Remove the brownies from the freezer and drizzle the melted chocolate over the top. When it’s hardened, cut the brownies in serving sizes, finish thawing the rest of the way and serve.
Recipe Notes

Freezing the brownies after they are iced is only for nice clean cut marks when you cut the brownies. If this doesn’t bother you, then you can skip the freezing portion and go straight to drizzling the chocolate and serving.
