Crème de Menthe Bars


This is a very easy recipe for crème de menthe bars. 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.

24 brownies



  • 1 cup white sugar

  • 1 cup butter, softened

  • 4 large eggs

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • 1 (16 ounce) can chocolate syrup

  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract


  • 2 cups confectioners' sugar

  • ½ cup butter, softened

  • ¼ cup creme de menthe liqueur


  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

  • 6 tablespoons butter


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish.

  2. Make the brownies: Beat sugar and butter until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs. Stir in flour, salt, chocolate syrup, and vanilla; mix until combined. Pour batter into the prepared pan.

  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes. Let cool, 15 to 30 minutes.

  4. While the brownies are cooling, make the frosting: Mix together confectioners' sugar, butter, and crème de menthe until smooth.

  5. Make the topping: Melt chocolate chips and butter over low heat. Stir until smooth.

  6. Spread frosting over cooled brownies, and place in the refrigerator to set, about 15 minutes.

  7. Spread chocolate topping over frosting. Let sit until set, about 15 minutes. Cut into 24 squares.
