  • In a large bowl, mix together 1 cup of white sugar and 1/2 cup of butter until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla and chocolate syrup. Combine the salt and flour; mix into the batter just until blended. Spread the batter evenly in the prepared pan.

  • Bake for 25 minutes in the preheated oven, until the brownies begin to pull away from the sides of the pan. Let cool.

  • In a medium bowl, mix together 1/2 cup melted butter and confectioners' sugar until smooth. Stir in creme de menthe liqueur. Spread over the cooled brownies and allow to cool completely.

  • Combine the chocolate chips and remaining butter in a microwave safe dish. Heat for 1 minute in the microwave, stir, then continue to heat at 30 second intervals, stirring each time, until melted and smooth. Spread over the top of the brownies. Allow to cool completely before cutting into 2 inch squares.

I received a lot of compliments on this. I used a box brownie mix for this (cuts way back on the preparation time); for the mint topping I only used 1 cup of powdered sugar for the 1/2 cup of butter and instead of creme de menthe used 1 1/2 tsp of mint extract. This made it not too sweet. After it cooled in the fridge applied the chocolate topping then placed back into fridge overnight and brought into work next morning. Coworkers loved it. Read More

These were okay but before attempting please do not expect fudgy brownies. The texture was more on the cake-y side but the frosting is very rich. I went a little overboard with the mint extract ( I subbed mint extract- which is more concentrated- for the mint liqueur). The mint layer was borderline toothpaste-y! OOPS! Overall great taste.

I've been making these brownies since I was 12. Yummy and rich! However I don't melt the butter for the mint layer I cream it with the powdered sugar which makes it fluffy. Then I add a few drops of green food coloring so people can tell it's mint-flavored. Read More

After reading the reviews I made a few changes and came out with an incredible brownie. People were grabbing these and just inhaling them. One friend a die-hard no-cheat low-carber had 2! I used my own fudgey brownie recipe chilled it. Topped with with the mint frosting (my Reese brand creme de menthe was not very minty even with 4 Tbsp next time I'll use a touch of mint extract also) - be sure and chill this well it helps the next layer spread. I tried melting my chocolate twice (once melting the butter separately) but both times they appeared to "seize." But I just used it (both actually) on top and it was fine once chilled. I would recommend spreading a small area of chocolate at a time or your chocolate will chill too fast and will be really hard to spread. Read More

These brownies are the best!!I added 1 tsp. peppermint extract to the filling instead of liquer and a few drops of green food coloring for looks. Also for the frosting melted 3/4 c. choc chips with 1/2 c. whipping cream. I baked them for 45 minutes and they came out perfect. Read More

This was fabulous! I used our favorite boxed mix and then made the topping. I subsituted 1-1/2 tsp of mint extract for the creme de menthe. I also melted the chips in the micro. I was unsure who this would work but it was so easy. Added butter to chips - micro for 1 min. on power level 5. Stir. Micro for 30 secs on power level 5. Stir. And lastly micro 30 more secs. WOW! No rating I described talked about the combonation of textures here - the moist brownie on the bottom with a cream filling in the center and then finished with semi-sweet chocolate crust! Truely delectable! Read More

These brownies are absolutely awesome! Husband tried one and looked like he'd died and gone to heaven... I topped them off with some chopped white choc chips. Very pretty! I think these would also be good with orange flavoring instead of mint. I know Husband will be asking for these again. Thanks for posting! Read More
