BYU Mint Brownies

These are the best brownies I have ever tasted! They taste exactly like BYU's brownies! So good. The recipe says to bake at 350 for 25 minutes. I had to let them bake for 40 minutes in my oven. So gooey and yummy!

1 cup margarine
1/2 cup cocoa
2 tbsp honey
4 eggs
2 cups sugar
1 3/4 cup flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup chopped walnuts

1. Melt margarine and mix in cocoa. Allow to cool.
2. Add honey, eggs, sugar, flour, baking powder and salt.
3. Mix well and add nuts.
4. Pour batter into greased 9 x 13 pan.
5. Bake for 25-40 minutes or until knife comes out clean.

Prepare Mint Icing:

5 tbsp room temp margarine
dash of salt
1 tbsp light corn syrup
2 1/3 cup powdered sugar
1/2 tsp mint extract
2-3 drops green food coloring
3 tbsp milk

Mix margarine, salt, corn syrup and powdered sugar. Beat until smooth and fluffy. Add mint extract and food coloring and mix. Add milk gradually until the consistency is a little thinner than cake frosting.

Prepare Chocolate Frosting:

1/2 cup margarine
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/3 cup milk
4 cups powdered sugar, sifted

Spread mint icing over the brownies. Place brownies in the freezer for a short time to stiffen the icing. Remove from the freezer and carefully add a layer of chocolate frosting (I used store frosting).
