  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease one 13x 9-inch baking pan.
  2. Cream 1/2 cup butter with 1 cup white sugar. Beat in the eggs one at a time, mixing after each until fully incorporated. Stir in the chocolate syrup and vanilla. Mix in the flour and salt; stir until just combined. Pour the batter into the prepared pan.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until a tester comes out clean, about 30 minutes. Let cake cool completely before frosting.
  4. To Make Mint Layer: Combine the confectioners' sugar and 1/2 cup butter; beat with an electric mixer until smooth. Pour in the creme de menthe syrup; blend until incorporated. Spread over the top of the cooled cake.
  5. To Make The Chocolate Glaze: Melt the chocolate chips and 6 tablespoons butter together over low heat or in a microwave, stirring every 30 seconds. Let cool slightly, then spread over top of the mint layer. Chill cake for at least 3 hours or overnight. Cut into small blocks to serve. Keep cake refrigerated.

I can't believe the reviews here. This cake was was sickeningly sweet and a total disaster. I am irked as it took me a while to make this cake. A real disappointment !!

Exceptional cake! The actual cake is more like a brownie and is very moist and flavourful. I didn't have any creme de menthe so I went with 2 tbls of milk and 1/2 tsp of mint extract. Also, I...

This dessert tastes really good like a giant Jr. Mint and the consistency is like brownie/fudge. I made it for a party and everyone agreed it was VERY rich. My recommendation would be to cut it...
