ANNOUNCING: Change is part of life, and apparently, it's part of blogging, too. As of September 5, 2013, I'm merging The Virtual Goody Plate with Disco Mom Takes on the World and whatever else may henceforth spill from my fingertips (and kitchen), into one great new blog. I hope you'll join me there in exclaiming, "THIS IS AWESOMELAND."

Mrs. Hise's Mint Chocolate Brownies (by Maren)

This recipe was the dependable treat brought by our next-door-neighbors when we were kids. It's delicious.

It was something to look forward to every year. I still love them to this day! (-Kari)

Mrs. Hise's Mint Chocolate Brownies
1/2 c butter
1 c sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
2 squares unsweetened baking chocolate, melted
3/4 c flour

Cream butter and sugar. Add vanilla, eggs and cooled chocolate. Add flour and mix well. Pour into greased 8x8 or 9x9 square pan. Bake at 350º for 30 minutes.

1 c powdered sugar
2 Tbsp butter
1 Tbsp cream 1/4 tsp peppermint flavor
a few drops green food coloring

Cream together and spread on cooled brownies. This makes just enough for a thin layer of frosting.

Melt 1 more square of unsweetened or semisweet baking chocolate and drizzle over frosting. Cut into small squares or triangles. Makes about 20 to 25.

There is nothing better than mint and chocolate and anything that contains them both is going to be amazing!
