  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease one 13x 9-inch baking pan.
  2. Cream 1/2 cup butter with 1 cup white sugar. Beat in the eggs one at a time, mixing after each until fully incorporated. Stir in the chocolate syrup and vanilla. Mix in the flour and salt; stir until just combined. Pour the batter into the prepared pan.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until a tester comes out clean, about 30 minutes. Let cake cool completely before frosting.
  4. To Make Mint Layer: Combine the confectioners' sugar and 1/2 cup butter; beat with an electric mixer until smooth. Pour in the creme de menthe syrup; blend until incorporated. Spread over the top of the cooled cake.
  5. To Make The Chocolate Glaze: Melt the chocolate chips and 6 tablespoons butter together over low heat or in a microwave, stirring every 30 seconds. Let cool slightly, then spread over top of the mint layer. Chill cake for at least 3 hours or overnight. Cut into small blocks to serve. Keep cake refrigerated.

This is a terrific dessert! The cake part is soooo moist and chocolatey, while the mint layer is very subtle, not too overpowering. The only thing I did differently is to drizzle the chocolate g...

I made these last night. Very simple. Very good. I wanted to follow the recipe very badly...unfortunately I "sampled" the Creme de menthe. It was just strong enough that when I "sampled" the...

This dessert tastes really good like a giant Jr. Mint and the consistency is like brownie/fudge. I made it for a party and everyone agreed it was VERY rich. My recommendation would be to cut it...
