Mint Brownies

These mint brownies are the best!!!


  • 1 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup cocoa
  • 2 Tablespoons honey
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 cup white sugar
  • 1 3/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 Tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
  • 12 oz. chocolate icing (Use your own icing recipe or purchase some chocolate frosting.)
    Mint Icing
  • 5 Tablespoons butter
  • dash of salt
  • 3 Tablespoons milk
  • 1 Tablespoon light corn syrup
  • 2 1/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • 1-2 drops green food coloring

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Melt butter and mix in cocoa. Allow to cool. Add honey, eggs, sugar, flour, baking powder, and salt. Mix well. Add nuts. Pour batter into a greased 9-by-13 baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes. Cool.
  2. Prepare mint icing: Soften butter. Add salt, corn syrup, and powdered sugar. Beat until smooth and fluffy. Add mint extract and food coloring. Mix. Add milk gradually until the consistency is a little thinner than cake frosting.
  3. Spread mint icing over brownies. Place brownies in the freezer for a short time to stiffen the icing. Remove from the freezer and carefully add a layer of chocolate icing.  Store in the refrigerator.
