Mint brownies

1 cup butter
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
2 cups flour
1/2 cup cocoa
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp salt

Blend butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla. Add flour, cocoa and salt. Por into 9x13 pan. Bake 350 for 30 minutes.

Some people use melted andes mints instead of the two below steps...

2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
5 TBS butter, softened
1 TBS water
1/2 tsp mint extract
3-4 drops food coloring

Blend above ingredients until creamy. Spead over semi-cooked brownies and refrigerate until set.

1/2-3/4 pkg chocolate chips
6 TBS butter

Melt in sauce pan. Cool 30 minutes. Spread over mint layer and refrigerate until set.

Reminder to self: don't cook for longer than recommended and these are really rich and almost too sweet for me (the mint part).
