    Used different ingredients. I used a teaspoon of mint extract instead of creme de menthe. Quite tasty.  -  21 Jul 2008


    Used different ingredients. These brownies are the best!!I added 1 tsp. peppermint extract to the filling instead of liqueur. I baked them for 45 minutes and they came out perfect.  -  21 Jul 2008


    An incredible brownie. People couldn't stop eating them. I would recommend spreading a small area of chocolate at a time or your chocolate will chill too fast and will be really hard to spread.  -  21 Jul 2008
