BYU Mint Brownies

From BYU Magazine

1 Cup Butter
1/2 Cup Cocoa
2 TBSP Honey
4 Eggs
2 Cups Sugar
1 3/4 Cup Flour
1/2 TBSP Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Salt
1 Cup chopped walnuts (I left these out)
12 oz. chocolate frosting (I used the mint frosting recipe below and just left out the mint flavoring and green food coloring and added 1/3 cup of cocoa.)

Mint Icing-
5 TBSP Butter
dash of salt
3 TBSP Milk
1 TBSP Light Corn Syrup
2 1/3 Cup Powdered Sugar
1/2 tsp. Mint Extract
1-2 drops green food coloring

Melt butter and mix in cocoa. Let cool. Add honey, eggs, sugar, flour, salt, and baking powder. Mix well. Add nuts. Pour batter in to a greased 9x13 pan and bake at 350 for 25 minutes. Cool.

Prepare mint icing. Soften Butter. Add salt, corn syrup, and powdered sugar. Beat until smooth and fluffy. Add mint extract and green food coloring. Mix. Add milk slowly until consistency is a little thinner than cake frosting.

Spread mint frosting over brownies. Place brownies in the freezer for a short time to stiffen the icing. Remove from freezer and carefully add the layer of chocolate frosting.

These are amazing brownies. Enjoy!
