Happy St. Patrick's Day!!!
If I was more creative, my kids would be sporting cool green hairdos today ala this mom. Alas, my kids have to settle for normal hair and eating this fun mint dessert.
I have been craving Grasshopper Bars, or mint brownies, for awhile now. My own mom made these treats for us growing up and they are just as good as I remembered!
A little goes a long way with these, they're pretty rich!

1 brownie mix, prepared according to package directions. I like to follow the more "cake-like" directions for this recipe, if you have that option.
1/2 cup butter, softened
3 oz cream cheese, softened
2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 tsp mint extract
green food coloring
1 cup (6 oz) semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/3 cup butter
In medium bowl, cream together the butter and cream cheese for the filling, until light and fluffy.
Spread the green filling on the cooled pan of brownies.
Spread chocolate frosting over mint filling. Refrigerate for at least an hour, or until firm.
Cut into small squares and serve.
