Creme de Menthe Bars is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from The recipe has an error in it regarding the division of salt, I think the 1/4 teaspoon is supposed to go in the crust. Also I bake the crust cooled it then put the mint layer on and baked it. The mint layer absorbed into the crust , so there is hardly any green showing. I am guessing maybe it should be cooked at a lower temp? If this is the case you need someone to proof read your recipes a little better. Won't be trying this particular recipe again. I am very disappointed .
