BYU Mint Brownies

I am usually not a big fan of brownies, but I love the BYU Mint Brownies! I got the recipe from one of my mom's friends. I hope you enjoy!

PREP AND COOK: 90 min. COOL: 1 hr.

- Brownies:
  • 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 walnuts12 oz (optional)

- Chocolate Icing: (Use your own icing recipe or purchase some chocolate frosting. You can also search the Internet for chocolate icing recipes.)

- Mint Icing:

  • Dash of salt
  • 5 Tbsp. Margarine
    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-by-13 baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes. 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 icing.
