Creme de Menthe Brownies

When I got married, I wanted to get a few of my husband’s family recipes, and this one is at the top of the bunch. His Aunt Sus gave it to me; they are her Christmas standby, and now they are mine too. They are so moist, and the chocolate and mint combo is a winner!

Creme de Menthe Brownies

1 cup sugar
1 cup + 6 T. butter, separated
4 eggs
1 t. vanilla
1 cup flour
½ t. salt
1 cup Hersheys chocolate syrup
2 cups confectioners sugar
4 T. Creme de Menthe
1 cup chocolate chips
6 T. butter

Cream sugar and ½ cup butter. Add eggs and vanilla, then flour, salt, and syrup. Put in a “Pammed” 9×13 pan and cook for 30 minutes at 350 degrees.

Meanwhile, cream 2 cups confectioners sugar and remaining ½ cup butter. Add 4 Creme de Menthe. Frost the cake with this. Melt chocolate chips and 6 T. butter, and spread over top of frosting.
