Creme de Menthe style

by C. Carol , BERWICK, PA on Dec. 2005

I made these for a party one time, instead of using peppermint for the mint,I used a small amount of creme dementhe syrup, which makes the icing more green, and drizzled chocolate on top to finish. For the drizzle, melt equal amounts of butter (no subs) and Nestle's chocolate chips, mix and drizzle on top!

These make great after dinner snacks or mid afternoon snacks and are just the right touch.

Just A Tad More Mint

by E. Erin , Washington, PA on Jan. 2005

The brownies are great and the recipe is easy. I would add Andes Candies or Peppermint Patties after the brownies are out of the oven for a more minty taste. Love them!!!!

Good and Minty

by M. Melissa , Hancock, MN on Apr. 2004

My husband just loved these. He loves just about anything that has mint in them. Usually I can't find any good recipes with mint in them but even I enjoyed these brownies. There wasn't too much mint but yet there was enough mint to get the full flavor.

Not minty enough

by N. Nancy , Hastings, NE on Mar. 2004

These brownies were moist and very good, but I like a lot more mint taste. I think next time I will place mint patties on top of brownies just out of the oven for a more minty taste.
