Creme De Menthe Brownies

A co-worker brought these Creme de Menthe Brownies into work about a month or so ago. On my way in I walked through the kitchen and saw them. Naturally I grabbed one! This was at approximately 7:45 am. Immediately after I ate it I went back for another. 2 brownies before 8:00 am…must be some kind of a record. Luckily the temptation wasn’t there long because everybody else liked them just as much as I did and they vanished before noon.

About 2 weeks later, she brought these brownies in AGAIN, this time with the recipe. I made myself a copy and was pumped to try them out. I added them to the top of our must-try list.

To be honest, they got mixed reviews from other people. Kara liked them overall but didn’t like that they were cake-y. Others told me that they didn’t really love the frosting. I think that’s silly…what’s not to like about minty frosting? I loved the frosting, but in all fairness there are very few frostings that I don’t love.

Don’t get me wrong, these definitely don’t take the place of a traditional brownie. Brownies that are chewy around the edges and soft and fudgey in the middle can not be beat. But these are totally different! I think they’re delicious and they’re a fun twist on a standard brownie. When you need a fun, chocolate fix then this is an easy recipe worth trying out.

Here's what you'll need

Start by creaming the butter, eggs and sugar

Add the chocolate syrup, flour, salt and vanilla

Spread into a greased 9x13 baking dish

While that bakes you can start on the creme de menthe layer

Looks about right

Spread the creme de menthe layer on top of the cooled brownie layer

Melt the chocolate chips and butter in a small saucepan until smooth

Spread the chocolate on top and let the brownies harden in the fridge

A fun twist on brownies

    I always end up with really hard ends on my brownies and it’s so frustrating! Do you gals have any tips for making them chewy all around?

      Hey Erin 😉
      Not really…but Im confident in saying these would not turn out with hard edges. The consistency is different from the standard brownie. Maybe it’s time to try out this recipe. Happy New Year!!!
