Double Mint Chocolate Squares 

Print Friendly 

Description:
These are great for Valentines or Christmas. You can leave out the food colouring if you like but they won’t have that visual wow factor. Green for Christmas and red for Valentines Day. I like to keep them in the fridge for a cool mint treat.

Ingredients:
Batter
¾c melted butter 1½c GF Baking Mix
1c sugar 1½tsp xanthan gum
3 eggs 1 tsp baking powder
½ tsp each vanilla/mint extract 8 drops food colouring (opt)
¾c mint chocolate chips

Glaze
?c mint chocolate chips 2 Tbsp butter
?c dark chocolate chips 1 Tbsp corn syrup


Directions:
Line a 9” square pan with parchment paper allowing paper to hang over the edge of the pan.
Place ¾c mint chocolate chips in a medium bowl and melt in the microwave for 30 seconds at a time stirring each time until melted. Set aside.
Place melted butter in bowl of mixer with sugar, eggs and extracts. Beat well. Add flour, xanthan and baking powder and stir to blend. Add 1¼c of batter to the melted mint chocolate and stir to blend. Pour into prepared pan.
Add food colouring (if using) to remaining plain batter. Spoon evenly over chocolate batter. Spread evenly and smooth the top.
Bake in a 350° oven for 30 -35 minutes until top is lightly browned. Cool in pan on wire rack.
Glaze
Combine mint and dark chocolate chips, butter and corn syrup. Microwave for 30 seconds at a time stirring in between each until smooth. Pour over cooled brownie and spread evenly. Chill in fridge until chocolate is set. Cut into ¾” squares. Store in a container in the fridge.


Servings: 12


Notes: If you're looking for a green colour for your baking try adding a drop or two of chlorophyll. A healthier option to corn syrup is agave nectar and it has the same consistency.

Wellness Tip
Dressing for Outdoor Winter Exercise
Dress appropriately and comfortably for cold weather exercise. Multiple layers will initially keep you warm and you can easily remove them, one at a time, as your body heats up. Likewise, a hat prevents substantial heat loss through the head and can also be easily removed.

Hauntings versus Dark Entities
Hauntings, often described as ghosts, is a topic that has fascinated humans for thousands of years. Add dark entities to the mix and you end up with a melting pot of supernatural or paranormal activities that are mysterious, frightening and unexplainable. However, all of life is made up of energy, so understanding these multi-dimensional energies will unlock the secrets to these mysteries.

Hearty Lentil and Squash Vegetarian Stew
Category: Vegetarian Entrees
Description: This is a great Weight Loss Recipe
Superb way to strengthen kidneys and adrenals. Helping to cope with anxiety better.
Health Benefits of Squash are a very good source of vitamins B1 and C, folic acid, pantothenic acid, fiber, and potassium. Squash is also a good source of vitamin B6 and niacin. Choose a squash that is in season.

The Health Benefits of lentils are that they are very rich in protein (about 26%), folic acid, and both soluble and insoluble dietary fiber. Lentils are also very high in Vitamin C and the B vitamins, and contain eight of the essential amino acids. They also contain many trace minerals. Lentils are one of the highest sources of antioxidants found in winter growing legumes.
The soluble fiber in lentils also helps eliminate cholesterol, since it binds to it, reducing blood cholesterol levels. There is also evidence to prove that lentils can slow the liver's manufacture of cholesterol, which similarly helps to reduce levels in the body.
Lentils for Weight Loss
Because insoluble fiber is indigestible and passes through the body virtually intact, it provides few calories. And since the digestive tract can handle only so much bulk at a time, fiber-rich foods are more filling than other foods, so people tend to eat less.
