Creme de Menthe Brownies

Quick & Semi-Homemade.
This is a fun way to add extra flavor and flair to brownies!

  • Brownie mix in a box (I prefer Ghirardelli)
  • 2 cups sifted confectioners' sugar
  • Half a stick of softened butter
  • 2 tablespoons creme de menthe
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons butter
Bake brownies according to box directions. Let cool.

Using an electric mixer, combine confectioners' sugar, half a stick of butter and creme de menthe. Spread on top of the brownies. Melt chocolate chips and butter in the microwave. Use a disposable pastry bag to pipe a border and flowers in the corners.  Add sprinkles to decorate.  

* I adapted this recipe from Junior League of Baton Rouge, Louisiana River Road Recipes IV Cookbook.  They call for unsweetened chocolate in the topping.
