Tuesday Treats: Creme de Mint Brownies

(This is a picture from google, I totally forgot to take pictures!)

In honor of the holiday this week, I thought it would be fun to make something green.  My mom always makes these and what a super easy recipe!  I'm not a huge fan of chocolate and mint, and since I gave up all sweet treats for Lent…off to work these babies went! 

Ingredients for Brownies
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
4 eggs
1 cup flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
1 16 ounce can of Hershey's syrup

Directions for Brownies
1.  Mix all ingredients together.  
2.  Spread in 9 X 13 greased pan. 
3.  Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
4.  Let cool.

Ingredients for Mint Layer
2 cups powdered sugar
1/2 cup melted butter
2 Tbsp Creme de Mint liquor

Directions for Mint Layer
1.  Beat all ingredients until smooth.
2.  Spread on brownies when cool.

Ingredients for Chocolate Layer
1 cup chocolate chips
6 Tbsp butter

Directions for Chocolate Layer
1.  Melt together over low heat. 
2.  Cool, spread over mint layer.

Hope you like these as much as my sister does!
