MAY REFERRAL BAKING

RED THREAD MINT BROWNIES


Brought to you by the lack of May referrals.... The CCAA might not be giving us our kiddos at a timely fashion, but this does not mean that they have cut the Red thread that connects us all to our BABIES!!!!

As some of you know.... I bake when I get stressed or happy or sad or .... Well I guess I just BAKE anytime....

Brownies


1 1/4 cup butter
2 1/2 cup sugar
6 eggs
1 TB vanilla

2 cups FLOUR
10 TB cocoa
1 1/2 tsp salt

Mix together ingredients. Spray a jelly roll pan with Pam. Bake at 350 degree for 20 minutes.

Mint Topping (FROSTING)

5 cups powdered sugar
1 cup softened butter
2 tsp mint extract
3 TB of water
Red or green food coloring

Mix together with a mixer and spread on cooled brownies

Chocolate Glaze

1 12 oz pkg semi sweet chocolate chips
3/4 cup butter

Melt in microwave or top of double boiler until smooth. Spread over the frosting. Refrigerate at leas 1 hour before serving. Brownies are great serviced chilled.

This glaze is great on a bundt cake where you just want a little extra delicious glaze.

Oh YUM!!! At least with the slowdown of referrals I can become quite the dessert maker thanks to you! I may also be 50 lbs. heavier thanks to you, but I'll save that for another comment day. =)

Oh my gosh-these are definitely NOT on my weight watchers plan, but I'm going to make them anyway. :) I think I will eat one(or two) and take the rest to work. They look sooooo yummy!
