1. Preheat oven to 350F. Grease 15 1/2"x10 1/2" jelly-roll pan. In heavy

speed, beat sugar, corn syrup, vanilla and 1 cup butter or margarine just
until blended. Increase speed to high; beat until light and fluffy. Reduce
speed to low; add flour, salt, and eggs; beat until well mixed, constantly
scraping bowl with rubber spatula. Increase speed to high; beat 2 minutes.
At low speed, beat in melted chocolate until blended. With spoon, stir in
walnuts. Evenly spread batter in pan. Bake 40 to 45 minutes until toothpick
inserted in center comes out clean. Cool brownies in pan on wire rack.
3.When brownies are cool, prepare mint butter-cream frosting: In large
bowl, with mixer at low speed, beat confectionners' sugar, milk, peppermint
extract, and 6 tablespoons butter until smooth. Stir in enough green food
coloring to tint a pretty green. Evenly spread frosting over cooled
brownies. Refrigerate while preparing Chocolate Glaze. 4. Prepare Chocolate
Glaze; spread over frosting to completely cover top. Refrigerate until
glaze is set, about 1 hour. Cut brownies lengthwise into 3 strips; cut each
strip crosswise into 15 bars. Makes 45. About 245 calories each.
