Recipe by crazycookinmama

This is a very rich and creamy brownie. Almost like a cake, with the frosting. Got it out of a Taste Of Home Magazine. They were a HIT! at our Church pot luck!

A wonderful recipe ... just like the kind my grandma used to make. For the frosting I boil together 3/4 c. white sugar, 3/4 c. brown sugar with 1/3 c. milk, boil ONE minute, remove from heat and add 1 tsp of vanilla, 1/4 stick butter, and a 12-oz package of mint chocolate chips. When butter and chips are melted, pour over cooled brownies. Sets up like fudge!
