Marvelous Mint Chocolate Brownies!
Who doesn’t love brownies?! I’m kind of famous for these at work. If I don’t make them at least twice a year, I lose tenure! 🙂 My dear friend, Mary, gave this recipe to me years ago back when we were next-door neighbors. I’ve been making them ever since. WARNING: These are ooey, rich and gooey – addiction is imminent.
I apologize to my clean-eating followers. This is NOT an eat-clean dessert. Hey, we have to splurge once in a blue moon!
Mint Chocolate Brownies!!!
* Brownie Mix
* 1 ½ stick butter (I use unsalted)
* 3 Tbs. Crème-de-Menthe
* 2 Cups Powdered Sugar
* 1 Cup Chocolate Chips (or Mint Chocolate Chips)
* 1 package Andies thin mint candy
Bake and cool your favorite brownie mix according to package instructions. (13 x 9 pan) I like Duncan Hines
Cool completely before spreading the crème-de-menthe layer. DO NOT CUT.Crème-de-menthe layer:
Beat ½ cup room temperature butter. Add 2 cups powdered sugar and 3 Tbs. green crème-de-menthe liquor. Spread over brownies. Let this set before spreading the chocolate glaze.
Stir 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (or mint chocolate chips for more mintness!) and 6 tbs. butter in a saucepan over low heat until melted and smooth. COOL. Pour over crème-de-menthe layer and spread evenly.
Before glaze sets, sprinkle with coarsely chopped Andies candy. Enjoy!!
