Creme de Menthe Chocolate Chip Brownies
Creme de Menthe Chocolate Chip Brownies are a mint lover’s delight. Creme de Menthe baking chips, chocolate chips, pecans and coconut make up this marvelous chocolate chip-type brownie. This brownie is LOADED with chocolate, too, along with being rich, decadent, and amazing. These mouthwatering brownies will have you salivating as you reach for a tall glass of milk.
These terrific brownies start with my niece, Heather’s, Best Chocolate Chip Cookie dough adding the “optional” chopped nuts. Then I added a package of Andes Creme de Menthe baking chips and coconut. These outrageous brownies will satisfy the strongest sweet tooth. They are like a chocolate chip cookie/brownie on steroids! Wow.
Last week, I wanted to make up some goodies for our church office staff for all their hard work. So along with Banana Mini Morsel Bars and Tropical Orange Creamsicle Bars, I made up a batch of Creme de Menthe Chocolate Chip Brownies. Granted, I love mint in anything. Certainly in sweets. But I realize not everyone feels the same way I do.
However, if you enjoy mint-flavored goodies, then put Creme de Menthe Chocolate Chip Brownies on your holiday baking list. They’re also terrific for your next tailgating party or backyard barbecue. Be prepared for a sugar high, though, as these goodies have a lot of sugar and chocolate!

Creme de Menthe Chocolate Chip Brownies are great for tailgating parties and potlucks.
Here’s what I did.
Dissolve baking soda in hot water. Set aside.
Place softened butter, eggs, white sugar, brown sugar and vanilla in a mixing bowl.
Add baking soda mixture.
Mix all ingredients with an electric mixer or whisk.
Add UNBLEACHED all-purpose flour. Bleached flour toughens baked goods. Add coconut, chocolate chips, Andes creme de menthe baking chips and pecans.
Stir ingredients with a wooden spoon to combine.
Grease a 10×17″ jelly roll pan. Spread cookie dough mixture into prepared pan.
Bake at 350 approximately 25-30 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
