"his is a very easy recipe. My son won a purple ribbon (which is higher than a blue ribbon) at the county fair when he was 10 years old. This was also his first paid 'catering' job for a graduation party when he was 12 (he's married now, so that gives you a clue as to how long I've had this recipe). Great brownies with a mint flavored filling." — Deirdre Dee

AWESOME! The first time I made these at Christmas
I did it from scratch, but the next time instead of
all the effort, I baked a batch of boxed brownies,
and still did the topping the same. We liked it better!
The topping is sooooo good! It will definitely become
a holiday tradition at our house! Thanks for a
great holiday treat!
This was good and very rich, but I think I prefer the plain brownie. Made my own brownie recipe and then followed the recipe for the frostings exactly.
Can I just say, HOLY ! These bars are awesome! I can't make them that often because they only last for about two days around here. FYI, I've also substituted Kaluha for the Creme de Menthe and it was heavenly.
I followed the suggestion of another reviewer and used a box mix of brownies (double chocolate) and made the icing and chocolate topping per the instructions. WOW! This is an amazing dessert- it's moist, decadent, and slices really easily for a pretty presentation. My creme de menthe liqueur was clear, so I added a few drops of green food coloring to make it festive. I will be making this again and again, and then again some more! Thank you so much Deirdre Dee!
This recipe is outstanding! I entered it in a newspaper contest and was chosen a semi-finalist. It is easy and delicious.
This is a tasty, pretty bar. I used a boxed brownie mix, so I can't comment on the brownie recipe. The one I use is Betty Crocker Triple Chunk-- by far the best brownie mix I've found out there. The minty frosting with the chocolate on top is a nice addition and dresses it up a bit, so that you can serve it on a dessert tray at a fancier party. I tried to "drizzle" the chocolate over the mint frosting, but it didn't drizzle very well for me, so I ended up spreading it. Chill it well so that it cuts with sharp edges, making presentation even nicer.
This was wonderful for a chocolate lover like myself! I didn't like it as much right after i had made it. But was in heaven the next morning after it had time to settle and the flavors to blend a little. Quite rich.
Great as is....But I was short on time so I used Betty Crocker triple chunk brownie mix. WOW! If you have the time try it as written, if not cheating makes a great dish too.
