Chocolate-Mint Brownies

Chocolate and mint is one of my favorite flavor combinations and St. Patrick’s Day was the perfect excuse to try out this new recipe from one of my favorite blogs: Six Sisters Stuff.

1 container (7 oz) marshmallow cream 
1/8 tsp mint extract
8 drops green food coloring, divided
1 box brownie mix (9x13 size) + corresponding ingredients
¾ cup white chocolate chips
1 cup vanilla frosting
10-15 Oreos or Grasshopper cookies, smashed into crumbles

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a 9x13 pan with cooking spray.

In a medium bowl, stir together marshmallow cream, mint, and 4 drops of food coloring.

In a large bowl, prepare brownie mix per package directions. Spread batter into the pan and drop 4-5 T spoonfuls of marshmallow mixture onto the batter. Drag a butter knife through the batter to swirl marshmallow into a marbled pattern.

Bake 26-28 minutes, until cooked through. Cool completely, 1-1 ½ hours.

In a small, microwaveable bowl, melt chocolate chips in a microwave for 30 seconds. Stir and microwave in 30-second increments, until melted. Stir frosting, 4 additional drops of food coloring, and melted chocolate into remaining marshmallow mixture.  Spread over cooled brownies and top with cookie crumbles. Cut into bars to serve.
