Chocolate Mint Brownies

I've made several Chocolate-Mint Brownies over the years and I think that this is one of the prettiest that I've made!  I think that all it needs as a finishing touch is a sprig of mint which I had plenty of in NY!  It IS time-consuming as it must cool thoroughly before spreading the next layer. 

 These are a "rich" bar, so cutting it into 16 pieces would be perfect!  

Chocolate-Mint Brownies

1/2  cup   Butter, softened
2  ounces semi- sweet chocolate
1     cup   Sugar
2  eggs            
1      tsp   Vanilla
1/2  cup   Flour 
1/4   tsp   Cinnamon

Butter & flour an 8" square baking pan and shake out excess flour.  Melt chocolate and whisk until smooth and shiny.  Remove from heat and set aside.
With an electric mixer, cream butter & sugar.  Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.  Beat in melted chocolate & vanilla.  Add flour and beat just until incorporated.
Pour batter into prepared pan and spread evenly.  Bake at 325 for 25-30 minutes or until tester comes out clean.  Cool to room temperature.

6     oz      White Chocolate
3     Tbsp  Heavy Cream 
3/4   tsp    Peppermint extract

Melt white chocolate & cream, stir constantly until mixture is smooth.  Stir in peppermint extract.  Spread filling over cooled crust.  Refrigerate until cool and set (approximately 30 minutes or longer).

4    oz     Semisweet Chocolate
1/4 cup   Heavy Cream

Melt chocolate and cream.  Whisk until melted and smooth.  Remove from heat and spread over the white chocolate layer.  Refrigerate until glaze is set (approximately 30 minutes or longer).  Cover and refrigerate.  Bring to room temperature before serving.
