for 10-15 sec.

Chocolate Topping
1/2 c. whipping cream
1 bag (12oz.) semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 c. butter (do not use margarine)

Directions: Pre-heat oven 350F.
1) Grease 13"x 9" pan with cooking spray.
Make & bake brownies as directed on back
of box for a 13" x 9" pan, using water, oil &
eggs. Cool completely.

2) In large mixing bowl, put butter, cream,
cream cheese, mint extract/green food coloring
& 1 cup of conf. sugar. SEE BELOW:

3) Start to blend on a low speed... then higher
to blend & make nice & smooth.
4) Add 1 more cup of conf. sugar..start slow again
then higher speed until thoroughly smooth.
Add rest of powered sugar & beat until silky,
smooth & delicious!!!!!
5) On cooled brownies..spread the mint filling
& put into refrigerator to set for 1 hr...
Meanwhile, in a 2 qt. nonstick saucepan, heat
topping ingredients over medium-low heat, stirring
constantly, until melted, smooth & gorgeous!!
Cool about 10 min.
SEE BELOW:


6) Pour topping over filling, spread to cover.
Refrigerate uncovered about 2 hrs. or until set.
Before cutting into bars let stand for 10 min.
at room temperture. Store covered in refrigerator.
Finished & Looking wonderful!!! Enjoy!!
(Maybe cut into smaller bars because of the richness)
Ahhhhhhhhhh!!! That left over frosting!!!!! Do you
remember when you were a kid & your mom made
these??? My mom use to always put frosting in
between some graham crackers & either put them
in my school lunch or to eat when we got home
from school. SEE BELOW:
Sometimes the sweetest memories are some of
the simpliest things..Happy Memories everybody!!!
