Ingredients

For the mint filling:

  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese softened
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon mint extract
  • 4 drops green food coloring

For the brownies:

  • 1 cup butter (2 sticks)
  • 4 ounces unsweetened chocolate cut into pieces
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

For the frosting:

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons corn syrup
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 2 ounces unsweetened chocolate cut into pieces
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup powdered sugar

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat a 9-inch by 13-inch cake pan with nonstick spray and dust lightly with flour.

To make the mint filling:

  • In a small bowl, beat cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Add egg, mint, and food coloring and stir until combined. Set aside.

To make the brownies:

  • To make a double boiler, set a bowl (glass or metal) set over, but not touching, a pot of simmering water (around 180 degrees). To the bowl, add butter, stirring occasionally until melted.
  • Stir in chocolate until smooth. Remove from heat and cool slightly, at least 10 minutes.
  • Stir in sugar and vanilla. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in flour.
  • Pour batter into prepared pan. Carefully top with mint filling. Bake until set, about 45 to 50 minutes. Cool completely, about 1 hour.

To make the frosting:

  • In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, combine butter, corn syrup, and water and bring to boil. Remove from heat.
  • Stir in chocolate until smooth. Add vanilla and powdered sugar and beat until smooth. Pour over cooled brownies and spread evenly. Cut into 36 bars. Store in refrigerator.
