Million Dollar Brownies with Green Mint frosting
Million Dollar Brownies
1/2 C Margarine 1/2 C flour
7 TBSP cocoa powder 1/2 tsp salt
1 C sugar 1/2 C chocolate chips
2 eggs 1/2 C pecans
1/2 tsp vanilla
Heat oven to 350 degrees.
Melt margarine in pan and REMOVE FROM HEAT (Really, if not you might end up with scrambled eggs)
Stir in cocoa, sugar, eggs and vanilla
Stir in remaining ingredients.
Spread in an 8 X 8 X 2 greased square pan
Bake 20-25 minutes or until top is set.
3 Tbsp margarine
1 1/2 C powdered sugar
1/2 tsp peppermint extract
1 to 2 Tbsp milk
Green or red food coloring about 3 or 4 drops or until it's the color you want.
I always add the food coloring and mix it a little bit before I add the milk, or else you might end up with soup.
You can also use this same recipe and add vanilla extract instead of the mint, for a creamy white vanilla frosting or cut the brownies when they are still warm and roll them in powdered sugar. Yummm!
