Creme de Menthe brownies are easy to make, and taste like you put more effort into them than what you really do. This is a wonderful way to bring box mix brownies to a new level. Simply bake the brownies, and add something more for a cool and refreshing taste. I like to take these brownies to pot lucks and to the office. Now, of course, you can also use your favorite brownie recipe instead of a mix.
1 box mix of brownies – your favorite type
1 pkg. crushed Creme de Menthe candies – these are sold in the baking isle next to the chocolate chips
Prepare brownies according to the package directions. When the brownies are done, and removed from the oven sprinkle the Creme de Menthe candies on top and allow them to melt. You can swirl the melted candies for a pretty design or simply leave them as they are. For ease of cutting it is best to let the candy harden so you can get nice even pieces.
