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.

Part two - The hemp seed has a multitude of uses in food. The meat of the hemp seed is also highly nutritious and versatile for preparing a number of foods.

Recipe
Turmeric Lemonade
Category: Drinks
Description: This orange-colored root is an anti-inflamatory, helps Alzheimer’s, and lowers bad cholesterol. Turmeric is used for arthritis, heartburn (dyspepsia), stomach pain, diarrhea, intestinal gas, stomach bloating, loss of appetite, jaundice, liver problems and gallbladder disorders.

Turmeric is also used for headaches, bronchitis, colds, lung infections, fibromyalgia, leprosy, fever, menstrual problems, and cancer. Other uses include depression, water retention, worms, and kidney problems. And, although it stains everything, including your teeth, temporarily, it really works to clean your teeth, whitening them, without damaging your teeth like peroxide does.

Turmeric is pretty much a super root with super powers. It’s packed full of antioxidants, has anti-inflammatory properties, is great for brain health, lowers risk of heart disease, and has been found to lift depression. In this clinical trial, on major depressive disorder (MDD), Curcumin (the active ingredient in turmeric) equaled the effects of the prescription drug fluoxetine (the generic form of Prozac), without the adverse effects!
