BYU Creamery Mint Brownies

Before we start, I have to confess.  I've never been to the BYU Creamery.  I haven't ever even tried one of their Mint Brownies.  So... I can't honestly say how these compare.  But that's okay, because even if these BYU Creamery Mint Brownies taste nothing like the original thing, they're still freaking delicious.  My 12 year old asks me to make them again almost every day!

If you aren't much of a sweets fan, you might want to look the other way.  I even promise not to be offended.  These things are loaded with sugar!  Brownies topped with frosting.  And since one layer of frosting isn't enough on brownies, another layer of frosting tops the first layer frosting.

1 cup butter
2 cups sugar
2 tablespoons honey
4 eggs
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 3/4 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup chopped nuts, optional

Mint Frosting:
1/3 cup butter, softened
1 tablespoon corn syrup
2 1/3 cups powdered sugar
3 tablespoons milk
1/2 teaspoon mint extract (not peppermint)
2 to 3 drops green food coloring

Chocolate Frosting:
2 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup cocoa powder
2 tablespoons milk

In a large microwave safe bowl, melt butter; mix in cocoa and allow to cool. Add honey, eggs, and sugar; mix well. Stir in flour, baking powder, and salt until moistened. Add nuts. Pour batter into a greased 9 x 13-inch baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes. Cool completely.

For the mint frosting, combine butter, corn syrup, and powdered sugar. Beat until well mixed. Add mint extract, food coloring and milk. Spread on cooled brownies and refrigerate for 30 minutes to 60 minutes to firm up the frosting.

For the chocolate frosting, combine butter, cocoa powder and powdered sugar; mix well. Add milk and beat until smooth. Spread over mint frosting.
