chocolate mint brownies [recipe]

oh yes. these were delicious. I'd say they were more cake-like in texture than brownies, probably because they had to cool first before adding the mint layer.

to be fair, I should mention that Sean made these from beginning to end... I had nothing to do with it at all... I was too busy cleaning to even pay attention. but I did help eat them, so that gives me rights to post the recipe! HA!


prep time: 15 minutes
cook time: 30 minutes
ready to eat: 2 hours 5 minutes

  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups chocolate syrup
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 2 tablespoons creme de menthe liqueur
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13 inch baking dish.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together 1 cup sugar and 1/2 cup of softened butter until smooth. Beat in eggs one at a time, then stir in the chocolate syrup. Stir in the flour until just blended. Spread the batter evenly into the prepared pan.
  3. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes in the preheated oven, or until top springs back when lightly touched. Cool completely in the pan.
  4. In a small bowl, beat the confectioners' sugar, 1/2 cup butter or margarine and creme de menthe until smooth. Spread evenly over the cooled brownies, then chill until set.
  5. In a small bowl over simmering water, or in the microwave, melt the remaining 6 tablespoons of butter and the chocolate chips, stirring occasionally until smooth. Allow to cool slightly, then spread over the top of the mint layer. Cover, and chill for at least 1 hour before cutting into squares. 

Happy Thursday!
