1 c.           Unsalted butter

4 oz.         Unsweetened chocolate

2 c.           Granulated sugar

2 t.            Vanilla - I use Spice Islands

4 lg.          Eggs

1 1/4 c.     T.G.I.G.F! Mix

Mint Topping

1 8oz.       Cream Cheese, softened

1/4 c.        Granulated sugar

1 lg.          Egg

1/4-1/2 t.   Mint extract * Use the amount to your taste.


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease an 11" x 13" pan.  In a small mixing bowl cream together the topping ingredients until fully blended and smooth, set aside. In a large saucepan melt together the butter and chocolate over low heat, stirring constantly. Stir in the sugar and vanilla. Remove from heat and allow to cool 5 minutes. Using a handheld mixer blend in eggs one at a time until fully incorporated. Add T.G.I.G.F! and mix well. Pour brownie batter into pan and spread evenly. Using a spoon, place dollops of topping over batter. Take a knife and create swirls of the mint topping over the brownie batter by running the knife vertically and horizontally through the topping and batter - taking care to not mix the topping completely into batter. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven 35-45 minutes until set. Allow to cool at least 20 minutes before slicing.
