One Bowl Mint Brownies

Ladies, you know those days when all you want is a little morsel of chocolate?!

Here is the perfect solution - easy to make, with VERY few dishes to get dirty!
One bowl, chocolate mint brownies...
... yum.

1 stick butter or margarine
2 eggs
1 1/4 cups flour
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 splashes of water (about 2 tablespoons)
1 cup mint chocolate chips
1 cup mini morsel chocolate chips
1 container vanilla frosting
Green food coloring

1.) Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2.) Combine water, sugar, and butter in a bowl. Put in microwave for about a minute - until everything is melted.

3.) Add 3/4 of the mint chocolate chips and 1/2 of the mini morsel chocolate chips.
(If you can buy the mint chocolate chip "SWIRLS" brand, then add 1 full cup of those instead of the other 2 kinds.)
Stir together, until the chocolate chips are melted.

4.) Add 2 eggs, vanilla extract, and peppermint extract - mix together.

5.) Add flour, salt, and baking soda - mix together.

6.) Add in the rest of the mini chocolate morsels and mint chocolate chips. Feel free to add chopped walnuts or almonds too.

7.) Pour into a pan no larger than a 9x9.
Bake in oven between 20-25 minutes.

8.) It's done when you insert a toothpick in the middle, and it comes out clean.
Let cool for 20 minutes.

9.) Put some of the vanilla frosting in a bowl, add 2 drops of green food coloring, and about 1/4 teaspoon of peppermint extract.

10.) Mix together, then spread on cooled brownies!

11.) Sprinkle baby morsels on top...
... Enjoy!
