BYU Mint Brownies

While attending BYU I fell in love with these mint brownies! I found their recipe on-line yesterday and am making them right now! I hope they turn out like I remember. Thought I would pass this on as some of you might have also fallen in love with these! Don't know if they would be a good kids party item but the mom's will definitely enjoy them.

BYU Mint Brownies

Makes one 9 x 13 pan

1 C. margarine
1/2 C. cocoa
2 Tbsp. honey
4 eggs
2 C. sugar
1 3/4 C. flour
1/2 Tbsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 C. chopped walnuts
12 oz. chocolate icing (use your own recipe or purchase some chocolate frosting)

Mint Icing
5 Tbsp. margarine
dash of salt
3 Tbsp. milk
1 Tbsp. light corn syrup
2 1/3 C. powdered sugar
1/2 tsp. mint extract
1-2 drops green food coloring

1. Melt margarine and mix in cocoa. Allow to cool. Add honey, eggs, sugar, flour, baking powder, and salt. Mix well. Add nuts. Pour batter into a greased 9 x 13 baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 min. Cool.

2. Prepare mint icing: Soften margarine. Add salt, corn syrup, and powdered sugar. Beat until smooth and fluffy. Add mint extract and food coloring. Mix. Add milk gradually until the consistency is a little thinner than cake frosting.

3. Spread mint icing over brownies. Place brownies in the freezer for a short time to stiffen the icing. Remove from the freezer and carefully add a layer of chocolate frosting.
