Paula Deen's Creme De Menthe Brownies

READY IN: 55mins




  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Mist 9x13 baking pan with cooking spray.
  • Prepare brownies: In double boiler, melt baking chocolate and 1 cup butter over simmering water; cool slightly.
  • In medium mixing bowl, beat eggs with a whisk until blended, then add the 2 cups granulated sugar and continue whisking until mixture is light and fluffy.
  • Add cooled chocolate mixture, salt, vanilla and flour.
  • Keep whisking until thoroughly blended.
  • Pour batter into prepared pan and bake 25 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and leave brownies to cool in pan.
  • Make filling: Using an electric mixer on medium speed, beat the 1/2 cup butter and confectioners' sugar together until well blended.
  • Stir in the creme de menthe and blend well.
  • Spread over cooled brownies.
  • Refrigerate in original baking pan until filling is firm.
  • Make icing: Melt the chocolate chips and 6 T butter in the top of a double boiler, stirring until smooth. (You can do this in the microwave, just monitor closely and stir a few times.).
  • Pour the warm glaze over the filling and tilt pan to distribute the icing evenly.
  • Refrigerate until chocolate hardens.
  • To cut, allow brownies to come to room temperature in the pan so chocolate doesn't crack.
