Creme de Menthe Brownies

My daughter and I were invited to a gathering of some old friends from high school last night.  I asked what I could bring and dessert was suggested.  I let my 4 year old choose and she said “The brownies with the green icing”.  These brownies are very rich so cut them in small pieces.  They aren’t hard to make but you have to allow time for each of the three layers to set.
