Triple Layer Mint Brownies

I first had a similar version to this brownie while at BYU Women's Conference a few years ago with some great friends.  They showed us a video that promoted the "famous" BYU brownie.  We caved and the four of us shared one brownie.  I was excited when I found this recipe.  Not only do they taste great, but bring back great memories.  The mint layer at BYU and in the recipe was colored green.  The first time I made these I did not have any green food coloring so I used blue.  It has just stuck and plus it is my favorite color. These brownies get better with age.  24 hours in the fridge make them even better.


Triple Layer Mint Brownie
Layer 1:
1 package brownie mix: bake as directed and cool.

Layer 2: Mint Frosting
1/2 cup butter, softened
4 cups powdered sugar
2-3 Tbsp. milk
1/2 tsp. mint extract
green or blue food coloring

Mix butter and powdered sugar. Add only enough milk to make a smooth consistency.  Add mint extract and enough food coloring for desired color. Frosting will be thick. Spread over brownie layer. Refrigerate until firm.

Layer 3: Chocolate Topping
1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup butter
1 tsp. vanilla
1/4 cup powdered sugar

Melt chocolate chips and butter in microwave for 2-3 minutes. Stir well to combine.  Add vanilla and powdered sugar.  Mix well.  Pour over frosted brownies, covering frosting completely.  Refrigerate until topping is set and hardened.  Cut into individual servings. 


They seem to taste better when stored in the fridge.  Someone ate one before I could get a picture!!

Crusty Italian Bread

Do you ever picture yourself eating a slice of Italian bread you know the type with the crunchy outside and soft and delicate inside. Well this is the recipe for you and I have found the secret to getting the perfect crust!! Crusty Italian Bread makes 2 loaves 1 1/3 cups warm water 2 1/4 teaspoons yeast 1 Tablespoon brown sugar 1 1/2 teaspoons salt 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil 4 cups flour Place warm water, yeast and brown sugar in mixing bowl. Stir and let stand for a few minutes until it start to bubble and foam a bit.  Add olive oil and salt.  Mix and add the flour gradually.  You want to add enough that the dough comes away from the sides of the bowl.  You want to mix it with the dough hook for a few minutes.  Cover and let the dough rise until doubled about 30 minutes. Punch down dough and divide in two and form into two loaves (I doubled the recipe this time.) Cover with a damp cloth and let rise until doubled. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Beat

Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake

One word for this one: DELICIOUS!!  It is so moist and easy to make.  It did not last long around our house.  My daughter finished the last little bit for breakfast  (she was afraid it would not still be there when she got home). Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake 1-8 oz. package cream cheese, softened 1/2 cup vegetable oil 1 package white cake mix (mine was vanilla) 1- 3 oz. package instant vanilla pudding mix 4 eggs 2 teaspoons vanilla 2 1/4 cups fresh or frozen, thawed blueberries powdered sugar Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Lightly spray a 9 inch bundt pan with cooking spray. Combine the cream cheese and oil in a medium bowl and beat with a mixer until smooth and creamy. Add the cake mix, pudding mix, eggs and vanilla. Beat at medium speed until blended. Fold in the berries. (Dough will be thick and sticky).  Pour into the prepared pan. Bake for 60 -65 minutes until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Cool the cake on a wire rack for 20 minutes.   Remov

Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles

Everytime I go to Costco I have been picking up a rotisserie chicken.  I shred all the chicken off the bones and it makes for great easy quick meals. This were the perfect use of it.  They were quick, easy and very delicious!! Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles Inspired by Dessert Now Dinner Later 2 cans of  crescent rolls 1 package of thin sliced ham (lunch meat)  slices of swiss cheese  2- 2 1/2 cups shredded cooked chicken Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Open the cans of crescent rolls. Separate and unroll the triangles.  You can either work on them all at once or in groups.  I made them in groups of 4. Lightly grease your cookie sheet. . Layer one or two slices of ham, 1 slice of cheese.  Then add a small amount of shredded chicken on top.  Fold the edges of the ham around the cheese and chicken. Starting at the fat end of the triangle, roll the crescent dough around all the fillings as tight as you can and continue rolling to the point of the triangle.
