Peppermint Frosted Brownies

I'm posting early today so that you will be ready to make this yummy St. Patrick's Day treat for tomorrow. It's combination of chocolate and mint really does make this treat the gold at the end of the rainbow!

Here's what you'll need:

Fudge Brownies - either MY RECIPE or a box mix, mixed, baked, and cooled
Peppermint Frosting:

1/4 C. butter
2 1/2 C. powdered sugar
1/2 tsp. peppermint extract
2-3 T. milk

1 C. semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 tsp. shortening

Beat butter for 30 seconds, add powdered sugar, mint extract and enough milk to make a good spreading consistency. Tint green with a few drops of food coloring. Spread over cooled brownies. Melt the chocolate chips and the shortening together and mix until smooth. Drizzle over the brownies and frosting. I frosted the brownies first, then cut them, and drizzled them with chocolate once they were on a plate to give away. But you can do it either way!

A PERFECT St. Patrick's Day treat! Enjoy!!!
