Crème de Menthe Cake

25 May

It’s a sweet, minty twist on a simple white cake – a crème de menthe cocktail you eat with a fork. Even for those wary of mint, crème de menthe in baking is worth a try. It’s sweeter – and in this recipe, milder – than peppermint or spearmint.

1. Prepare:
[your favorite white cake recipe] + 3 tb. crème de menthe liqueur*

2. Frost with:
2 cans chocolate frosting

3. Frost with:
16 oz. whipped topping +  4 tb. crème de menthe liqueur** Continue reading


Andes Candies Brownies

30 Dec

These mint chocolate brownies are rich and unique – a recipe I stole from my mom.






Crush/cut Andes mint chocolate candies into small chunks. You’ll need a generous 2 cups of chunks.

Prepare your favorite chocolate brownie batter (from scratch or from a mix), and stir in ½ cup candy chunks. Bake brownies accordingly using a 9 x 9 pan (I like these to be thick, but since they are so rich you might prefer to use a larger pan).

When brownies have cooled, melt 1 ½ cups of remaining candy chunks, saving some for sprinkling, and pour over brownies. Sprinkle the remaining chunks on top.

Simple as that!
