Grasshopper Brownies

One word sums up these brownies... YUMMMM. They are actually almost the same recipe as the Peppermint Candy Cane Brownies I posted about just a little while ago! The only two differences are the color of the frosting (green versus pink) and the candy topping on the brownies (Andes creme de menthe baking chips versus Andes peppermint crunch baking chips). The rest is the same! So, rather than re-write the whole recipe, I'll just post a few pictures. Next time the only thing I'd do differently is put a second drop of green food coloring in the frosting. This frosting is a nice minty shade of green and it seemed okay when I made it with just one drop of food coloring, but then as I was frosting the brownies I thought it could stand to be a bit bolder in its green color. Oh well. Next time! And I can guarantee there will be a next time that I make these brownies... ;-) You should try them too to see for yourself how delish they are!!
I like this picture on the right that I took after removing the first brownie from the corner.
And here are a couple to compare the brownies of the Peppermint Candy Cane persuasion versus the Grasshopper persuasion! :)
