First had these from a neighbor years ago, but I lost the recipe. I think this replicates it nicely. Creme De Menthe is a creamy, minty liqueur that's often used to make beverages and desserts. You can find it at most liquor stores. You can purchase clear or green Creme De Menthe, of course to get this fabulous green color in the minty layer I would highly suggest you get the green version. You use very little of the liqueur in this recipe, but the bottle will last a lifetime, it is fairly inexpensive. Maybe $6 a bottle. The brownie part is very rich and dense.
1. Preheat the oven to 350 F, and grease a 9x13" baking pan. Set aside.
2. Cream the sugar and butter together, then add the vanilla. Add the beaten eggs, 1 cup of flour, and the chocolate syrup. Mix the batter well, and spread into the prepared pan. Bake for around 30 minutes, but check early. Allow the batter to cool completely while you make the next layers.
1. Mix the butter with the powdered sugar and the crème de menthe. Spread it over the cooled brownie layer.
1. Melt the chocolate chips together with the butter, either in the microwave or in a double boiler on the stove. Pour the chocolate layer over the crème de menthe layer.
2. Transfer the baking pan into the freezer or refrigerator and allow to cool before you cut and serve.
I like to serve them in little petit fours size bites. They are VERY RICH!!
