Reviews for Chocolate Mint Brownies
"Very good! I use creme de menthe since that was in the recipe given to me. I have also used cherry syrup to make the middle layer red for Valentines or red and green for Christmas. Both are very good."
"This was not good. The brownie was absolutely NOT a brownie - more gummy than cake. The mint chips are unnecessary - the mint was overpowering. I knew something was not right when I saw the consistency of the batter going into the pan. Triple checked measurements"
"Not like a traditional brownie. More like a moist cake, but still delicious!"
"For our baking friends who can't get Hershey's chocolate syrup: http://allrecipes.com/recipe/chocolate-syrup/"
"I used a Ghirardelli box brownies and followed the recipe for the rest. They were excellent and a huge hit with everyone."
"These brownie have been a family fav for 40 yrs with a title "Creme de menthe brownies"and is must have for hoildays!. It uses Creme de Menthe and couple drops extract for filling flavor. Make the brownie from scratch, it has a great taste texture, differnet than a box brownie!"
"What is chocolate syrup I am from Canada"
"I made these last week and since I was in a hurry I used a Family Size brownie mix. For the filling I used 1 stick butter, 3 C. powdered sugar and 4 T green Creme de Menthe. They were great."
"can you please tell me of an alternative to canned chocolate syrup. I am from Australia, would love to make these sound yummy."
"I have been making these for years. I can't get away from them, my whole family always asks me to "Just bring those mint brownie things". They taste like an Andes Candy and are just perfect!"
