Grasshopper Bars (Peppermint Brownies)

Ok...hold on to your seat!!! Here's the best PEPPERMINT Brownies EVER. I have even been told that mine are BETTER than the famous BYU Mint Brownies! YIPPIE! Nothing but the Best from me!
Again....LOVE BETTY CROCKER! But, I tweaked it a bit. I used PEPPERMINT (lighter flavor) instead of Mint Extract. In the original recipe it uses a choc. cookie mix as the base....I use BROWNIES of course. For the glaze it also uses baking choc and better melted together....I use Smuckers Magic Shell. you go. Decide for yourself!
Brownie Base:
Regular brownie mix. Mix and bake as directed.
3 cups Powdered Sugar
1 pkg (3 oz) Cream Cheese, softened
2 TBLS Milk
1-2 tsp. Peppermint Extract (taste until desired)
3-4 drops Green Food Coloring
Smuckers Magic Shell, drizzled over frosting.
**Mix and bake Brownie base as directed, let cool.
***In large bowl (because of large amount of powdered sugar flying everywhere), mix all frosting ingerdients until smooth. Spread over brownies.
****Drizzle Magic Shell, and put in the refrigerator for at least 30 mins before serving.
Store covered in Refrigerator.
