The Menu Mama recipes


1 brownie mix, prepared according to package directions. I like to follow the more "cake-like" directions for this recipe, if you have that option.


1/2 cup butter, softened

3 oz cream cheese, softened

2 1/2 cups powdered sugar

1 tsp mint extract

green food coloring


1 cup (6 oz) semi-sweet chocolate chips

1/3 cup butter

Prepare and bake brownies according to package directions in greased 13x9 inch pan. Set aside to cool.

In medium bowl, cream together the butter and cream cheese for the filling, until light and fluffy. Add powdered sugar, mint extract, and a few drops of food coloring. Beat until smooth. Spread the green filling on the cooled pan of brownies.

In a small bowl, melt butter and chocolate chips together in microwave. Heat on high for 30 seconds, stir, then heat and stir in 10 second intervals until smooth. Spread chocolate frosting over mint filling.

Refrigerate for at least an hour, or until firm. Cut into small squares and serve.
