Today’s recipe is so YUM!!!! BYU Brownies are a soft chocolatey brownie topped with layers of mint frosting and chocolate frosting.

BYU Brownies

1 cup butter
1/2 cup cocoa
2 Tbs honey
4 eggs
2 cups sugar
1 3/4 cups flour
1/2 Tbs baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
12 oz chocolate frosting (use your own favorite recipe)

Mint Icing

5 Tbs margarine
dash of salt
3 Tbs milk
1 Tbs light corn syrup
2 1/3 cups powdered sugar
1/2 tsp mint extract
1-2 drops green food coloring

1. Melt margarine 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 9×13 baking pan. Bake at 350* for 25 minutes. Cool.

2. Prepare mint icing: Soften margarine. 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.

4. Enjoy!!
