This recipe comes from BYU

I forgot to take a photo of the brownies. When I remembered, only this last piece was left. The mint icing really makes it super yummy.

  • 1 cup margarine
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 3/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
Mint Icing ingredients:
  • 5 tbsp margarine
  • Dash of salt
  • 3 tbsp milk
  • 1 tbsp light corn syrup (I used golden syrup)
  • 2 1/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 tsp mint extract
  • 1-2 drops green food coloring
  • In a saucepan, melt the butter and then mix in the cocoa.
  • As you wait for it to cool, mix together eggs, sugar and honey.
  • In a separate container, mix the dry ingredients together - flour, baking powder and salt.
  • Put the dry ingredients with the eggs, sugar, honey. Pour in the melted butter and cocoa too.
  • Mix them all together until well blended.
  • Add in the nuts.
  • Grease a 9-13 baking pan and pour the batter in. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes.
    Then let cool.
Start preparing the mint icing.
  • Add salt, corn syrup and powdered sugar to the soften margarine.
  • Beat until smooth and fluffy.
  • Mix in the mint extract and the food coloring.
  • Gradually, add in the milk. You want to achieve a consistency slightly thinner than cake frosting.
  • Once the brownies is completely cooled, you can spread the mint icing over.
  • Put in the refrigerator a little while so the icing can become stiff.
  • After you take it out from the fridge, smooth on a layer of chocolate icing.
