Creme de Menthe Brownies

These brownies are on my short list of favorite desserts.  They are simply divine!!  I love making them around St. Patrick’s Day as an excuse to give to teachers and then eat all of the leftovers.  If you love thin mints, these are the brownies for you.  They are really even so much better than that… can you even imagine?!  Bestie C’s mother used to make them for us in college.  I mean, I vividly remember looking forward to consuming them by the pan full.

I packaged up a few to take in to the littles’ teachers tomorrow in two random boxes left over from other projects.  Since the baby has a teacher and a student teacher, I figured the big box would be perfect to fit two!  The tags are from the Dixie Delights Shop.  It’s currently closed, but will reopen in early April.
