Frozen Mint Brownies

3 squares unsweetened chocolate
1 1/2 cup sugar
3/4 cup butter
1/2 tsp peppermint extract
3 eggs
3/4 cup flour
dash of salt

3 T butter
1 1/2 cup powdered sugar
2 T milk
1/2 tsp peppermint extract
2-4 drops green food coloring

2 sq unsweetened or semi-sweet chocolate
2 T butter

Melt chocolate and butter together for the brownies. Beat eggs and add sugar. Add chocolate and butter mixture and mix. Add extract, flour, salt and mix thoroughly. Spread in a 9x13 greased pan and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Cool completely (rush cooling process by putting them into freezer).

Mix frosting ingredients together and spread on cooled cake. Cool in fridge, covered (or freezer for faster).

Make glaze by melting chocolate and butter. When at room temp, spread on top of frosting.

Place in freezer for 5 minutes to set chocolate. Cut brownies. Place in a container and keep in the freezer until you eat them! They are best right out of the freezer.

*I got this recipe from  As I was mixing them, I couldn't help but think to myself, "Am I really doing this, all this sugar, butter, and chocolate in one treat?"  But I did, and it was delicious!  May I suggest sharing them with a friend. . . somehow it validates all those calories. The only change I made was in the glaze.  Because I had only unsweetened chocolate squares, I substituted with 1/4 c semi-sweet chocolate chips.  Very yummy.
