                         CHOCOLATE ICING
    4       oz           Semisweet chocolate
    1       tb           Butter or margarine
   BROWNIE LAYER: Cream soft butter with sugar. Add eggs
   one at a time and mix until creamy. Stir in vanilla
   and nuts. Gradually stir in flour; being careful
   not to overmix.
   In microwave, melt chocolate 2-3 minutes in small
   glass measuring cup, stirring after 1 1/2 minutes.
   Stir chocolate into batter evenly. Pour batter into
   greased 8-inch square casserole. Spread evenly. Cook
   7-8 minutes on high, rotating after 3 minutes. Allow
   to cool.
   MINT LAYER: Cream butter and sugar. Add milk and blend
   until creamy. Add flavoring and enough color to be
   light green. Carefully spread over cooled
   brownies, evenly. Allow mint layer to “firm up” before
   adding chocolate layer.
   CHOCOLATE LAYER: Melt in glass measure cup for 2-3
   minutes. Stir after 1 minute. Allow to cool and spread
   over firm mint layer. Spread carefully so mint and
   brownie layers are not disturbed. allow to stand
   several hours. Cut
   into squares to serve.
   I usually bake a 9 X 13 pan of brownies from a mix!
   Double the mint and chocolate icing recipes. This is a
   very popular brownie! Wonderful for St. Pat’s and
   Christmas parties....  and just about anytime!
