St Patrick’s Day Brownies
Creme de menthe brownies recipe
Makes about 20
1 cup (2 sticks) butter
4 squares unsweetened chocolate
2 cups sugar, divided
5 eggs, divided
1-1/4 cups flour, divided
1 teaspoon vanilla
1-1/2 cups white chocolate chips
1/4 cup creme de menthe
3-5 drops green food coloring
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9 x 9-inch baking pan and set aside.
Melt the butter and chocolate in a small pan over a low flame. Pour the chocolate mixture into a large bowl. Mix in one and a half cups sugar. Add four eggs one at a time, mixing after each one. Add the vanilla. Gradually mix in one cup of flour.
Spread half the chocolate mixture into prepared baking pan and set aside.
Melt the white chocolate chips in a double boiler and stir until smooth. Transfer the melted white chocolate to a medium mixing bowl. Add one egg, 1/2 a cup of sugar and 1/4 cup of flour and mix until smooth.
Add as many drops of food coloring as you like to the white chocolate mixture and mix until you reach a green shade you desire. Spread this white chocolate mixture over the dark chocolate mixture already in the pan. Top with the remaining dark chocolate mixture and bake for 40 to 45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out with just a few crumbs on it.
Let the brownies cool for 10 minutes in the pan. Transfer to a wire rack and let them cool completely. Slice the brownies into squares and serve with some Irish coffee.
