GF Mint Brownies

My friend brought these glorious brownies to homeschool group yesterday.  (Yes, I'm still teaching in my commonwealth despite my kid going off to college early.)  I asked her if I could have the recipe... 

Yeah, she said, "It's on your blog."

Wow, It's been too long.

Baking them today!

Thanks Lisa H. This is her adaptation from Cooking Light Magazine as we are still repeating GF recipes from the December 2009 pot luck. How could I bake for the holidays without that party???

Bottom Layer:

1 cup GF Flour (GFPantry's French Bread Mix)
(I used my wholegrain flour mix with 1 tsp. xanthan gum)
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup sugar
5 eggs or (2 eggs and 1/2 cup egg substitute like Egg Beaters)
1/4 cup butter melted
2 Tbsp. water
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/3 cup (16 oz.) canned Chocolate syrup
Hersheys is g-f. ***  homemade recipe link below
2 Tablespoons cocoa powder

Mix wet ingredients and add the flour mix. Bake in a 9x13 pan at 350 for about 23 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean.

MINT Layer:

2 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup butter (softened)
2 Tbsp. milk

2 drops green food coloring

Beat on high until light and fluffy. Stroke over the top of the cooled brownies.
