Miss Debbie's Creme de Menthe Brownies

We always make these at Christmas. They are wonderful and moist. They also freeze well.

Step One
For Brownie:
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup butter
1/2 tsp. salt
1 16 oz. can Hershey Syrup
4 eggs beaten
1 cup flour
1 tsp. vanilla

Step Two
Mint Filling
1/2 cup butter
2 cups powdered sugar
2 tbsp. green creme de menthe liquor

Step Three
Chocolate Glaze
1 6 oz. package chocolate chips
6 tablespoons butter

Step one
Melt butter and add sugar, salt, hershey syrup and eggs, and vanilla, mix well. Add flour and mix well. Put into greased 13 x 9 pan, lined w/ "Release" aluminum foil or parchment paper. (Let the aluminum foil extend over 2 sides so you can use it to lift the brownies out.) Bake for 30 mins. in 350 oven. Remove and LET COOL.

Step Two - Mint Filling
With an electric mixer beat butter with powdered sugar and creme de menthe until smooth. Spread over COOL brownies.

Step Three - Chocolate Glaze
Melt over low heat (or in microwave) chocolate chips and butter. Mix and let cool slightly before spreading over mint filling. Chill in fridge for a few hours. Remove from pan and cut into 1" squares. (Trim the edges first for really neat brownies). Place on cookie papers to serve.
