Mint Brownies

These are the best mint brownies ever. Recipe is from Becky Higgins. Make sure you make them for a large group...or you will eat the entire thing and gain 10 pounds.

2 c. butter - melted
3/4 c. cocoa
2 1/4 c. sugar
6 eggs - beaten
Combine above ingredients and mix well.

Add the following to the mixture:
2 c. flour
1/8 tsp. salt
2 tsp. vanilla

Bake this brownie layer in a Texas sheet cake pan or two 9" x 13" pans for this amount. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes (add 8-10 minutes if you use two 9" x 13" pans.) Cool completely.

Mint frosting
4 c. powdered sugar
1/2 c. butter - melted
5 Tbsp. milk
6 drops food coloring
2 tsp. mint or peppermint extract

Spread frosting on chilled cake and then chill again.
Melt a bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips and spread for top layer. Chill.
