I’ve been having a hard time making 2-3 new recipes every week.  I just don’t have the time I used to.  Usually I can get one or two recipes done during the week because we have to eat dinner but then by the time the weekend comes I don’t really feel like cooking or baking.

These St. Patrick's Day Brownies with Buttercream Frosting are delicious

This has been putting a damper on my holiday recipes.  Normally I make anywhere from four to eight recipes for every holiday.  Pair that with the fact that Valentine’s Day, Mardi Gras, St. Patrick’s Day, and Easter were all within 6 weeks of each other and it’s been crazy trying to get more than one or two holiday recipes up for each of these holidays.

Everything you need to make St. Patrick's Day Brownies

I made these St. Patrick’s Day Brownies on a whim one day.  I had some time and I was craving chocolate.  I was going to make a pan of brownies but whenever I do that I end up eating a large brownie.  I thought brownie bites would be better because I would only grab one small bite and that would be enough to satisfy my sweet tooth.

Mini Brownies to make fun St. Patrick's Day Brownies

I didn’t think to make them into St. Patrick’s Day Brownies until they were cooling on the counter.   At that point I thought a green tinted mint frosting and a sprinkle of mint and chocolate chips would make for a tasty and fun holiday treat.  So I whipped up frosting, piped it on, and they were finished.
