Chocolate Glazed Mint Brownies
12 servings

2 squares (1 ounce each) unsweetened chocolate
1/2 cup butter
2 eggs
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup flour
for filling
3 tablespoons butter, softened
1 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
2 tablespoons milk
3/4 teaspoon peppermint extract
3 to 4 drops green food coloring
for glaze
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
2 tablespoons butter

In microwave, melt chocolate and butter; stir until smooth. Cool slightly. In a large mixing bowl, beat the eggs, sugar and flour until blended. Stir in the chocolate mixture. Pour into a greased 9 inch square baking pan. Bake at 350° for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack. In a small mixing bowl, beat the filling ingredients until creamy. Spread over brownies; refrigerate. For glaze, in a microwave, melt chocolate chips and butter; stir until smooth. Spread over filling. Refrigerate until filling and glaze are set.

These were for my chocolate and mint loving children. :-) I might get a picture of one when my camera returns...if there are any left!
