One of the best things about this recipe is that the brownies get moister if you leave them in the refrigerator for a day or two. The problem at our house is no one can leave them alone for that long! —Helen Baines, Elkton, Maryland

"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!"
