Double Mint Chocolate Squares 

Print Friendly 

Description:
These are great for Valentines or Christmas. You can leave out the food colouring if you like but they won’t have that visual wow factor. Green for Christmas and red for Valentines Day. I like to keep them in the fridge for a cool mint treat.

Ingredients:
Batter
¾c melted butter 1½c GF Baking Mix
1c sugar 1½tsp xanthan gum
3 eggs 1 tsp baking powder
½ tsp each vanilla/mint extract 8 drops food colouring (opt)
¾c mint chocolate chips

Glaze
?c mint chocolate chips 2 Tbsp butter
?c dark chocolate chips 1 Tbsp corn syrup


Directions:
Line a 9” square pan with parchment paper allowing paper to hang over the edge of the pan.
Place ¾c mint chocolate chips in a medium bowl and melt in the microwave for 30 seconds at a time stirring each time until melted. Set aside.
Place melted butter in bowl of mixer with sugar, eggs and extracts. Beat well. Add flour, xanthan and baking powder and stir to blend. Add 1¼c of batter to the melted mint chocolate and stir to blend. Pour into prepared pan.
Add food colouring (if using) to remaining plain batter. Spoon evenly over chocolate batter. Spread evenly and smooth the top.
Bake in a 350° oven for 30 -35 minutes until top is lightly browned. Cool in pan on wire rack.
Glaze
Combine mint and dark chocolate chips, butter and corn syrup. Microwave for 30 seconds at a time stirring in between each until smooth. Pour over cooled brownie and spread evenly. Chill in fridge until chocolate is set. Cut into ¾” squares. Store in a container in the fridge.


Servings: 12


Notes: If you're looking for a green colour for your baking try adding a drop or two of chlorophyll. A healthier option to corn syrup is agave nectar and it has the same consistency.

Wellness Tip
A More Comfortable Biking Option
If the seat on a stationary bike is uncomfortable, try a recumbent bike. The seat on a recumbent bike is more like a regular chair that is shaped to fit your back. Even if you are new to biking, recumbent cycling can be a desirable option.

Recipe
Sweet Potatoes or Yam Baked Fries
Category: Side Dishes
Description: If you love the taste of French fries, why not bake your own?
Did you know that sweet potatoes are a great source of fiber, beta-carotene, and vitamin E?

Sweet potatoes are good for you because they have high levels of beta carotene (the same vitamin found in carrots). Sweet potatoes are julienned and tossed with olive oil and sea salt in this super easy baked sweet potato fries recipe.

The reason you should avoid French Fries from a restaurant is because most are deep-fried in hydrogenated vegetable oil. Besides causing cancer, hydrogenated oils clog your arteries, promote heart disease, interrupt metabolic processes, and cause belly fat that crowds the organs and strains the heart. So try this baked Sweet potatoes fries recipe.
