Million Dollar Brownies with Green Mint frosting

These are the absolute, best brownies ever!  In my opinion anyways.  They seriously taste like fudge with frosting.  If you like cake-like brownies this recipe is not for you.  I've never found a recipe I like better.   You make it on the stove so all you need is a sauce pan and a spoon. So here it is:

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.

Mint Frosting

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!
