Mint Brownies!

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!
