BYU Mint Brownies

1 c. margarine
1/2 c. cocoa
2 Tbsp. honey
4 eggs
2 c. sugar
1 3/4 c. flour
1/2 Tbsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 c. chopped walnuts
12 oz. chocolate icing (Use your own icing recipe or purchase some chocolate frosting.

5 Tbsp. margarine
dash of salt
3 Tbsp. milk
1 Tbsp. light corn syrup
2 1/3 c. powdered sugar
1/2 tsp. mint extract
1-2 drops green food coloring

Melt margarine and mix in cocoa. Allow to cool. Add honey, eggs,
sugar, flour, baking powder, and salt. Mix well. Add nuts. Pour
batter into a greased 9-by-13 baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees
for 25 minutes. Cool. Prepare mint icing: Soften margarine.
Add salt, corn syrup, and powdered sugar. Beat until smooth
and fluffy. Add mint extract and food coloring. Mix. Add milk
gradually until the consistency is a little thinner than cake
frosting. Spread mint icing over 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 icing.

We are just finishing a batch of these. They are so good. My 18 month old gives the biggest smiles when I offer him some after dinner.
