I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Easy Mint Brownies

These fudgy, buttery, minty brownies are so rich and irresistible they are like the George Clooney of brownies! Seriously!


Brownie mix for 2 - 8 X 8" brownies, I got this one at Walmart (or make your favourite homemade recipe for brownies but that takes away from the easiness of the recipe 😊)

Mint Frosting:
3/4 cup butter, at room temperature
3 tbsps milk
3 cups icing sugar
1 1/2 tsps peppermint extract
4 dabs of green food colouring gel

Chocolate Mint Top:
2 1/4 cups peppermint chocolate chips
3/4 cup butter

Prepare whatever brownie mix or recipe you want, remembering that it has to be for 2 - 8 X 8" s. Spread the batter in a greased 11 X 15" baking sheet. Bake at 350F for 25-30 minutes. Cool, then place the pan in the freezer for 15 minutes.
While you wait mix the frosting together and after the 15 minutes spread evenly over the brownie layer. Return the pan to the freezer for another 15 minutes.

To make the chocolate mint top, place the chocolate mint chips and butter in a large microwaveable bowl. Microwave at 20 second intervals, stirring between each, until the chocolate is almost melted. Then just stir until smooth. This took about 1 minute in total. Carefully spread on top of the frosting and return to the freezer just to set.

Score the top layer with a knife before slicing right through and wipe off the knife after every cut.

Store in the refrigerator.

Makes 48 dreamy squares 😍 (Sorry, I was thinking about George Clooney again!)
