Stacey's Creme de Menthe Frosting Ingredients

8x8" cake pan
First, I wanted to preheat the oven to 350F. However, I forgot and had to do it later and wait. If you're going to follow this recipe, you should be more mindful than me and preheat the oven. :) I lined an 8x8" cake pan with foil. Then I heated the butter, and using a silicone pastry brush, I coated it with butter.
You don't want it to get too hot, or it will cook the eggs. I use my temp gun and usually it's around 110F.
Then I added the sugar, vanilla, and eggs.
Once it was cool, I mixed all the frosting ingredients together in a bowl.
Here is a cut piece - had to take it with a different camera because I forgot mine.
Everyone enjoyed the brownies, especially one of my boyfriend's sisters because she likes them to taste more raw. These were definitely moist if you like it that way, but I think I would have preferred to bake it for another 5 minutes or so. Oh well, next time. :) And of course, I'll let you know how that goes.
