Ingredients

Brownie

1 (18.3-ounce) package fudge brownie mix
2/3 cup Land O Lakes®; Butter, melted
1/4 cup water
1 cup crème de menthe baking chips*

Frosting

1/3 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened
2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1/4 teaspoon mint extract
4 to 6 drops green food color

Directions

Heat oven to 350°F. Line 13x9-inch baking pan with aluminum foil, extending foil over edges. Spray, bottom only, with no-stick cooking spray; set aside.

Combine all brownie ingredients except baking chips in medium bowl until well mixed; stir in baking chips. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake 26-28 minutes or until edges begin to pull away from sides of pan. Cool completely.

Meanwhile, beat 1/3 cup butter at medium speed in large bowl until creamy. Add powdered sugar, mint extract and enough milk for desired frosting consistency. Continue beating until creamy. Tint frosting with food color, as desired.

Lift brownies out of pan, using foil ends; peel off foil. Trim brownie edges to form 12x8-inch rectangle. Cut into 24 (2-inch) squares. Arrange 12 brownies in a circle on a large platter, inside corners touching, to form bottom layer of wreath.

Place frosting in pastry bag fitted with large star tip. Pipe frosting stars onto bottom layer of wreath. Let stand 20-30 minutes or until frosting begins to set. Top with remaining brownies, arranging brownies between spaces of bottom layer. Pipe frosting stars onto top layer of wreath. Decorate with spearmint leaves and red cinnamon candies, as desired. Let stand until frosting sets. Cover with plastic food wrap until ready to serve.

*Substitute 1 (4.67-ounce) box (28) crème de menthe mints, chopped.

Recipe Tip

- Make sure your butter is softened when preparing the frosting. This will make your frosting smoother and creamy.

- Attach a red ribbon bow or tie a red fruit roll-up into a bow and attach to wreath.

Recipe Comments & Reviews

This is a great recipe and idea! I made the brownies from scratch instead of using a mix, so that helped make it even better. They looked beautiful on the plate and tasted amazing, and I got requests for the recipe.
Made this using white cake mix for my daughters class party, seems most kids like vanilla better than chocolate, anyway this came out very nice, couldn't stack because the cake pieces were bigger, so we had two wreathes. Kids really enjoyed them.
