Baking Blitz: Gourmet Mint Brownies

This was my second option for the night. The rum balls went so well that I kept going!

Rating: I give these a 3, but I'd like to try them again because I think I could do a better job. (1 being "I'll never bake them again" and 5 being "They are now one of my favorites")

1 (8oz.) pkg. Cream Cheese (softened) or sour cream
¼ cup Sugar
1 Egg
1 tsp Mint Extract
4 drops Green Food Color

1 cup Butter
4 oz. Chocolate Chips
2 cups Sugar
2 tsp Vanilla
4 Eggs
1 cup Flour

2 tbsp. Butter
2 tbsp. Corn Syrup
2 tbsp. Water
2 oz. Chocolate Chips
1 tsp. Vanilla
1 cup Icing Sugar

Filling: Heat oven to 350. grease and flour 13’’x9’’ pan. Combine cream cheese, sugar. Beat until smooth. Add egg, mint extract, and food color. Mix well, set aside.

Brownies: Melt butter and butter over light heat. Stir constantly. Cool for 15 minutes. Stir in sugar and vanilla. Add eggs, one at a time. Beat after each addition. Stir in flour; mix well. Spread in greased and floured pan. Spread filling over brownie. Bake for 45-50 minutes. Cool for one hour or until completely cool.

Frosting: In a sauce pan combine butter, syrup, and water, bring to a rolling boil. Remove from heat. Add chocolate, stir until melting. Stir in vanilla and icing sugar. Beat until smooth. Spread over cooled brownie. Cut into bars. Best served when cold.
