Yield

48 brownies

Brownie Ingredients

1 (1 pound 6.5 ounce) box Betty Crocker® Original Supreme brownie mix
(with chocolate syrup pouch)
1/3 cup water
1/3 cup vegetable oil
2 eggs
1 cup chopped pecans
1 (10 ounce) bag mint-flavored chocolate chips (1 1/2 cups)

Mint Frosting Ingredients

1 (1 pound) container Betty Crocker® Rich & Creamy vanilla frosting
1/2 teaspoon mint extract
2 drops green food color, if desired

Shiny Chocolate Glaze Ingredients

reserved mint-flavored chocolate chips
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
2 tablespoons corn syrup
1 to 3 teaspoons hot water

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350°F (177°C). Grease the bottom only of a 13 x 9-inch baking pan with Pan Release or cooking spray.

In medium bowl, stir brownie mix, chocolate syrup, water, oil and eggs using spoon, about 50 strokes or until well blended. Stir in pecans and 1 cup of the chocolate chips (reserve remaining chocolate chips for glaze). Spread batter in pan.

Bake 28 to 30 minutes or until toothpick inserted 2 inches from side of pan comes out clean or almost clean. Cool completely, about 1 hour.

In medium bowl, stir all frosting ingredients using spoon until well blended. Spread frosting over brownies.

In 1-quart saucepan, heat reserved chocolate chips, 2 tablespoons butter and the corn syrup over low heat, stirring occasionally, until melted. Stir in hot water, a few drops at a time, until mixture is thin enough to drizzle. Drizzle over frosted brownies. Refrigerate about 30 minutes or until glaze is firm. For brownies, cut into 8 rows by 6 rows.
