Brownie Layer

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup flour
  • Pinch salt
  • 1 16- ounce can of chocolate syrup

Mint Icing Layer

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 drops green food coloring
  • 1/4 tsp peppermint extract
  • 2 tbsp creme de menthe liqueur

Chocolate Glazer Layer

  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 6 tbsp butter


  1. Make the brownie layer: In a large mixer, cream the 1/2 cup butter, then add the sugar and cream until smooth. Beat in the eggs and vanilla and then mix in the flour. Finally, mix in the chocolate syrup. Pour the mixture into a well-greased jelly roll pan (or 18"x13" cookie sheet) that is at least 3/4" deep. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Allow the brownies to cool completely.
  2. Make the icing layer: Cream the 1/2 cup butter, add the sugar, food coloring, peppermint extract, and creme de menthe liqueur, and continue beating until a smooth frosting is created. Gently spread the icing evenly over the cooled brownies in the pan. Chill the entire pan for at least 30 minutes before continuing.

  3. Make the chocolate glaze layer: Melt the 1 cup of chocolate chips and 6 T. of butter in a double boiler and stir until smooth. Carefully spread on top of icing layer. Refrigerate for *exactly* 20 minutes before cutting the brownies into squares. Serve immediately, or else keep refrigerated until ready to serve.
