Chocolate Mint Brownies (Creme de Menthe)



Make these at least one day ahead because of all the different layers. Keep covered in fridge. Sounds very involved, but they are SO GOOD. Nice for a special occasion. DS and his DW had a St. Pat's party and they requested these as I had served them at their rehearsal dinner-our family and her family are very Irish!
1 C sugar
1/2 C butter, softened
4 eggs
1 C flour
1/2 tsp salt
16 oz can Hershey's syrup
1 tsp vanilla
Mix in order. Spread in greased 9x12 pan. Bake 30 minutes at 350*. COOL COMPLETELY.
2 C confectioner sugar
1/2 C butter, softened
2 TBS creme de menthe
Mix together until smooth. Frost the cooled brownie layer. Chill.
Heat in saucepan: 1 C chocolate chips and 6 TBS butter. Melt, then cool down and pour on top of the chilled frosting layer. Chill completely. Cut into small squares-they are VERY RICH. I use a sharp knife and dip it in warm water to make cutting easier and cleaner.
