The Creme de Menthe Brownie recipe is another one of those family recipes that has been around for generations. It's a great go-to recipe if you need to bring a treat to a potluck, or party (these are a Superbowl favorite!) - the mint and chocolate combo can't be beat. Ok, I guess peanut butter and chocolate could beat it, but this is a great second;). There are a few steps involved, but they're a piece of cake. Or should I say brownie? (Sorry, couldn't resist).
Without further ado (or puns), here's the recipe:
1. Make a pan of brownies and let cool. (This recipe is made for 13x9 pan size, but I made them last night for 7x11 (not realizing I had picked up the small brownie box!), and it's fine, you just get thicker layers. So whatever you want to do!)
2. Mix 2 cups 10x sugar, 2 Tablespoons Creme de Menthe, and 1 stick of softened butter.
Oh, and if you have some young Bakers-in-Training hanging around and would like a good 30 minutes to yourself of complete- and I mean, COMPLETE silence, hand over the empty bowl, go grab a magazine, and enjoy some much deserved quiet time! ;)
