One last Christmas treat recipe...

As you may have noticed, I developed a little Obsessive Compulsive Disorder this holiday season in the *baking* department! Excitement just overwhelmed me as I tried new recipe after new recipe and turned out old favorites, as well. I'm now feeling some remorse for sending so many innocent people down the road towards Type 2 Diabetes...all in the name of Christmas cheer!
My mixer has been safely stored away and the oven has been turned off...but I have just one last recipe to share.

Fanny May Bars

I'm pretty sure that I don't need to be eating anything that has the word *fanny* in the title...I'm wondering if the title came from the almost 2 cups of butter wracked into these super yummy bars!
These amazingly rich chocolaty mint bars are a signature treat of my mother-in-law. I've never made them, but I might just have to bring them out around St. Patrick's Day!

Fanny May Bars

1 c. sugar
1 stick soft butter
4 eggs2 c. Hershey's syrup
1 c. flour

Cream together sugar and butter. Add eggs, one a time. Add Hershey's syrup and flour. Bake at 350 degrees in a 9x13 pan for 20 minutes.

4 c. powdered sugar
1 c. butter, softened
2 T. milk
1+tsp. mint flavoring
Green food coloring
4 T. creme de menthe (optional)

Beat well and spread on cool brownies; chill in refrigerator.

1 (12 oz) pkg. chocolate chips
6 T. margarine

Melt together in microwave and stir to blend. Pour over brownies.
Store in refrigerator.

Wow! Just reading that recipe gives me that Christmas sugar buzz! I think I'll head over here and make these cleansing smoothies!
