Creme de Menthe Brownies

This is another recipe from my old high school cookbook, Cook and Love it More, and a shout out to Miss Chenault, the chorus director who was known for these delicious treats. Since singing was never my forte, relegating me to the second string recorder class, I was never in her chorus and never privy to these treats...but they are legend around Lovett. And now that I can make them myself, I will no longer be deprived! (Picture soon to follow)

Creme de Menthe Brownies

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 - 16oz. can chocolate syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream butter and sugar, add eggs and remaining ingredients. Blend well and pour into 13x9 pan. Bake for 20-25 minutes.

Meanwhile, make the mint layer by mixing together the following:
  • 2 cups confectioners sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup or 2 TBL creme de menthe (I've used Peppermint Schnapps)

Spread over cooled brownies. For glaze, melt together 1 cup chocolate chips and 1 stick butter. Spread over mint layer. Chill and cut into squares.
