Mint Chocolate Chip Brownie Bars

I saw this recipe and had these chocolate chips in the freezer.  I used 10 drops of food coloring but it didn't turn out green enough.  They tasted great.

Mint Chocolate Chip Brownie Bars

1 box brownie mix (for a 9×13 pan), plus ingredients called for to make brownies

For the cookies:

1/2 cup unsalted butter
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups all-purpose flour
8-10 drops green food coloring, optional really need 10-15 drops
1 1/2 cups mint chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350°. Line a 9×13” pan with foil and spray with cooking spray.

Prepare brownies as directed on the box. Set aside.

Make the cookies: Cream together butter and sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer or in a large bowl using a hand mixer. Mix in egg, extracts, baking soda, and salt. Stir in flour, then stir in food coloring if using, being sure to scrape the sides of the bowl to make sure all the dough gets turned green. Stir in the chocolate chips.

Spread brownie batter in prepared pan. Scoop tablespoons of cookie dough, flatten slightly with your hands and then lay over the top of the brownies. It’ll be hard to spread because it’s thicker than the brownie batter, so it’s best to drop flattened tablespoons evenly over the batter and then press lightly with your fingers to adhere them to each other.

Bake for 30-40 minutes until the tops are starting to get golden. The toothpick test in the center will come out with some crumbs on the toothpick.

Cool completely before cutting into small bars.
