Celebrating St. Patrick’s Day {Creme de Menthe Brownies}

I have shared these Creme de Menthe Brownies many, many times but I can’t resist another post on them. They are that good. They do take some time to make, as each layer is done separately from scratch, but my family loves them just as much as I did the first time I had them in college.

Since the recipe makes a large pan full, I always give some away to teachers, neighbors, friends, etc. This cute packaging was from a few years ago.
