Mint Dark Chocolate Squares

Mint Dark Chocolate Squares - Finding Joy in My Kitchen

1 recipe dark chocolate brownies {minus chocolate chips, and + 1/4 C bread flour)

4 T butter, softened

1 1/4 C powdered sugar

1 T milk 

1/2ish tsp. mint extract

4-6 drops green food coloring

3/4 C dark chocolate chips

3 T butter

Begin by making the brownies (9x9 pan), adding in an extra 1/4 C bread flour and eliminating the chocolate chips.  Bake according to directions, and then cool.  

Next, cream together the softened butter, powdered sugar, milk, mint extract and green food coloring.  Spread the mint layer over the cooled brownies.  

Then, melt the 3T butter and dark chocolate chips together slowly in the microwave or over medium heat.  Stir well.  Cool the chocolate layer to around room temperature, and then spread over the mint layer. 

My mom's notes say to store the recipe in the fridge, but, my mom typically leaves them at room temperature.  They won't last too long....!
