his is a very easy recipe. My son won a purple ribbon (which is higher than a blue ribbon) at the county fair when he was 10 years old. This was also his first paid 'catering' job for a graduation party when he was 12 (he's married now, so that gives you a clue as to how long I've had this recipe). Great brownies with a mint flavored filling.

AWESOME! The first time I made these at Christmas I did it from scratch but the next time instead of all the effort I baked a batch of boxed brownies and still did the topping the same. We liked it better! The topping is sooooo good! It will definitely become a holiday tradition at our house! Thanks for a great holiday treat! Read More

Can I just say HOLY! These bars are awesome! I can't make them that often because they only last for about two days around here. FYI I've also substituted Kaluha for the Creme de Menthe and it was heavenly. Read More

I followed the suggestion of another reviewer and used a box mix of brownies (double chocolate) and made the icing and chocolate topping per the instructions. WOW! This is an amazing dessert- it's moist decadent and slices really easily for a pretty presentation. My creme de menthe liqueur was clear so I added a few drops of green food coloring to make it festive. I will be making this again and again and then again some more! Thank you so much Deirdre Dee!

This is a tasty pretty bar. I used a boxed brownie mix so I can't comment on the brownie recipe. The one I use is Betty Crocker Triple Chunk-- by far the best brownie mix I've found out there. The minty frosting with the chocolate on top is a nice addition and dresses it up a bit so that you can serve it on a dessert tray at a fancier party. I tried to "drizzle" the chocolate over the mint frosting but it didn't drizzle very well for me so I ended up spreading it. Chill it well so that it cuts with sharp edges making presentation even nicer. Read More

This was wonderful for a chocolate lover like myself! I didn't like it as much right after i had made it. But was in heaven the next morning after it had time to settle and the flavors to blend a little. Quite rich. Read More

Well I wasn't sure about this at all while I was cooking it but it turned out soooooo yummy! The brownie part itself probably wouldn't be great by itself (I have another recipe that's out of this world) but with the mint frosting and chocolate on top it was really just right. I made a half batch and it worked out fine. I didn't want to buy creme de menthe just for this so I used a splash of mint extract in the frosting along with some green food coloring. I also wasn't very patient and frosted these while still kind of warm and then put the top chocolate layer on. However they cooled nicely and came out of the pan beautifully. I can't wait to make them again. I think they've got a great balance of flavors. Not too overly sweet not too minty. Might try the creme de menthe another time. Read More
