Ingredients

Nutrition
  • 1 (19 1/2 ounce) box milk chocolate brownie mix (recommended Pillsbury)
  • 3 eggs
  • 12 cup vegetable oil
  • 14 cup creme de menthe, plus
  • 2 teaspoons creme de menthe, divided
  • 12 cup chopped creme de menthe thin candies, about 18 (recommended ( Andes)
  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened (recommended ( Philadelphia)
  • 12 cup sugar

Directions

  1. Lightly spray a 1 1/2-quart souffle dish with butter-flavored cooking spray.
  2. Make a foil ring, 1-inch thick, for souffle dish to sit on inside a 5-quart slow cooker.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine brownie mix, 2 eggs, vegetable oil, and 1/4 cup creme de menthe. Stir using 50 strokes or use a hand blender on medium speed for 1 minute to combine. Fold in chopped mint thins. Transfer to prepared souffle dish and set aside.
  4. In a medium bowl, combine cream cheese, remaining egg, sugar, and 2 teaspoons creme de menthe. Using an electric mixer beat on low speed until smooth. Spread over brownie mixture. Use a butter knife to cut cream cheese mixture into brownie mixture for a marble effect.
  5. Place souffle dish on top of foil ring in slow cooker. Lay 8 paper towels over top of slow cooker bowl and secure with lid. (This helps to trap steam.)
  6. Cook on LOW setting for 4 1/2 to 6 hours. (Do not lift lid to check brownies for the first 3 hours.)
  7. Allow brownies to cool completely before cutting.

I just made a mini version of this recipe with a cereal bowl (instead of a souffle dish) in my mini crockpot. It worked out fabulously! I swear, you cannot mess up this recipe. I used 1/5 of all the ingredients, but used 1 whole medium egg divided into 1/3 for the cream cheese part and 2/3 for the brownie batter part; I also substituted creme de menthe for some Sailor Jerry's Spiced Rum (I live on a college campus, I do what I can). With all the substitutions, it was still moist and delicious and my roommates devoured it within 10 minutes.
