Mint Chocolate Brownies

As it's World Chocolate Mint Day (we were pretty happy when we found that out) here's a special recipe for mouth-watering mint chocolate brownies! 

Mint Chocolate Brownies
Serves:  16
Ingredients:
  • 1/2 cup Kerrygold Unsalted Butter
  • 1 1/8 cups sugar
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon mint extract, or to taste.
Directions:

Preheat oven to 325°F

Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium-low heat.

Combine sugar and cocoa powder in a large bowl; stir in melted butter until mixture is smooth.

Stir in 1 egg, vanilla, and salt. Mix in second egg.

Fold in flour and transfer to ungreased 8x8-inch square baking dish.

Bake in the preheated oven for about 35 minutes.

Remove from oven and cool in the baking dish for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.
