Top of the afternoon to ye and happy shamrock searching! May ye find a leprechaun with a pot of gold! At the very least, I do hope you wore green and avoided being pinched!
Happy Saint Patrick's Day!!
Dense, rich, moist, and minty brownies
Beat 3 eggs until fluffy. Add 1 & 1/2 cups sugar and 1 tsp. vanilla. Beat. Add 3/4 cups melted butter and 3 squares unsweetened chocolate, melted. Beat. Add 3/4 cup flour, 1/2 tsp. salt, and 1 cup walnuts. Beat until smooth. Pour into a greased and floured 9X13 pan. Bake at 350* for 20 minutes. Cool.
Combine 1/4 cup softened butter with 2 cups powdered sugar. Beat well while adding milk until thick. Add green food coloring and 1/2 tsp. peppermint extract. Frost. Chill for one hour.
Melt 1 package of semi sweet chocolate chips with 1/2 cup butter in double boiler until smooth. Pour over top of mint filling. Chill well before cutting.
P.S. I doubled the middle "frosting" layer seeing how that is my favorite part! If you follow the recipe above, your middle layer will be half as thick. Happy baking!
