Crème de Menthe Brownies

Posted on 13 March 2017

Our recipe puts a spin on a regular brownie by adding a crème de menthe cream cheese topping. The delightful minty flavor pairs perfectly with the richness of the chocolate!


  • 1 cup chopped dark chocolate
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder
  • 1⅔ cup sugar
  • 3 eggs, room temperature


  1. Preheat oven to 325°F.
  2. Melt the chocolate and butter over a double boiler on medium heat.
  3. Sift the dry ingredients and set them aside.
  4. Whip the sugar and eggs for about 5 minutes to ribbon stage.
  5. Fold in the chocolate and butter mixture.
  6. Fold in the dry ingredients.
  7. Pour onto a parchment-lined sheet pan and bake for about 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  8. Let cool completely.
  1. In a mixer with the paddle attachment, beat the cream cheese until smooth.
  2. Add the butter and mix until smooth, scraping the bowl.
  3. Add the powdered sugar and mix until smooth, scraping the bowl.
  4. Add Crème de Menthe Swirl and Crème de Menthe Extract, mixing until smooth and evenly colored.
  5. Invert the pan with the brownies and using a torch, heat the bottom to release them from the pan. The bottom is now the top, as it is the smooth, even side.
  6. Smooth the cream cheese mixture over the brownies and chill until set.
  • Trimming the edges of the brownies after adding the topping gives you a beautiful straight look perfect for plating. Also, the leftover bits make a great snack just for the chef!
