Brownies with Creme de Menthe Topping, St. Paddy's Dessert, St. Patrick's dessert, green dessert

Great for St. Paddy’s Day, or any time you’re craving mint and chocolate, really!

Who doesn’t love brownies? They’re rich and chocolatey, but not overly sweet or heavy like fudge can be. Brownies make the perfect dessert, finger food at parties, or just something to eat with your coffee and tea.
Our new 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. It reminds us here of thin mints, which is a high compliment when you think about it. They’re simple to make and watch our video to see how easy it is to add designs to the topping and dress the brownies up nice! The green color of the topping also makes it great for any Saint Patrick’s Day celebration!

Ingredients

    Creme de Menthe Extract, Mint Extract

    Our Crème de Menthe Swirl is great for straight use, and if you need something stronger, grab our Crème de Menthe Extract!

    • 2 sticks butter
    • 1 cup dark chocolate
    • 3 eggs
    • 1⅔ cup sugar
    • ½ cup all-purpose flour
    • ¼ cup cocoa powder

Directions

    1. BROWNIES: Melt the chocolate and butter over a double boiler on medium heat.
    2. Sift the dry ingredients and set them aside.
    3. Whip the sugar and eggs for about 5 minutes to ribbon stage.
    4. Fold in the chocolate and butter mixture.
    5. Fold in the dry ingredients.
    6. Pour onto a parchment-lined sheet pan and bake at 325 °F for about 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
    7. Let it cool for 30-40 minutes.
    8. TOPPING: In a mixer with the paddle attachment, beat the cream cheese until smooth.
    9. Add the butter and mix until smooth, scraping the bowl.
    10. Add the powdered sugar and mix until smooth, scraping the bowl.
    11. Add the Amoretti Crème de Menthe Swirl and Amoretti Crème de Menthe Extract, mixing until smooth and evenly colored.
    12. 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.
    13. Smooth the cream cheese mixture over the brownies and chill until set.

      • Trimming the edges of the brownie after you remove it from the pan and after you put the topping on gives you a beautiful straight look perfect for plating. Also, the leftover bits make a great snack just for the chef!

Rose and Lavender Madeleines, Madeleines, Floral Madeleines

These delicate treats complement any black tea and will satisfy your sophisticated cravings!

Great dipped in steaming black tea or as a sweet side to a hot cup of coffee, madeleines are deliciously sweet and airy. They are both impressive and easy to make, which makes this treat a win-win. And this recipe helps you step up your madeleines with one simple addition: the taste of rose and lavender. The delicate flavor of roses is subtle but creates a beautiful aroma and a unique after taste. Lavender is pungent in both taste and aroma, and is quite a sensational touch when added to the madeleines! We highly recommend calling your friends, having a tea party, and bringing these out to enjoy!
