Chocolate Mint Walnut Brownies


I have had such a Great response........to the
Chocolate /Mint Brownies I posted in July
I thought I'd post another one ..........but this
recipe is a lot Faster...& Easier......

These are one of the food items that will
be at my house at the Santas Gift Shoppe
Boutique coming up..(Dec. 3rd & 4th 2010)

These taste
incredible........Mint & Chocolate
just are the BEST combination together....

I
found this recipe on the back of a Brownie
Mix a very long time ago..and every time I make
them for an event or party....they always are a
hit......So, now you can get all the compliments
by making these little gems.....

Recipe

1 box "Duncan Hines" 21oz. Brownie Mix
(Chewy Fudge) Follow instructions
on the back of the box
1 16 oz. can vanilla frosting
a few drops Green food coloring (to your preference)
or ("icing colors" Kelly Green) a toothpick dab
a few drops of Peppermint extract flavoring
1 c. walnuts chopped in lg chunks (optional)
1 c. chocolate sprinkles (optional)


Follow directions on brownie mix for "fudgy"
brownies (be careful to read about metal/glass
pans vs. dark & non-stick pans...timing is a
little different)......

While brownies are cooling in the pan.....
take
the can of frosting and put it in the microwave
(about 10 sec or so) to make it more spreadable...
***You do not want it liquidity....

****You can do the next step right in the can if
you want to......

Add a few drops of
peppermint extract
and
a few drops of green food coloring/or toothpick
dab of kelly green "Icing Colors" to the can of
frosting & stir until you get the green you like...

After brownies have completely cooled....spread
frosting with a "beveled spatula" (this is the
Best kitchen tool to spread frostings I have
found......It looks like a bent long knife without
the sharp edges..)

A
dd chocolate sprinkles on top (if desired)
Look at both photos (above) to see which you like
better...Enjoy......
