Peppermint vodka. Steep for a few weeks in vodka, strain and decant into smaller bottles, decorate bottles and give as gifts (or drink yourself).

JGDean, great idea.
I have 75 more peppermint sticks to use here, picked them up at 75% off after Christmas, silly me.

This is from an old recipe card I wrote in '87.

Brownies with Mint and Chocolate

In a jelly roll pan bake at 350 degrees F for 25-50 minutes, then cool.
Brownie layer:
1 C sugar
1/2 C butter
4 eggs
1 cup flour
1/2 t. salt
16 oz Hersheys Syrup
1 t. vanilla
1/2 C chopped nuts

Mint Layer:
(my notes say to double it, so I'm giving you the double recipe)
4 C powdered sugar
6 T. creme de menthe
1 C butter
Mix and spread on cooled brownie layer and refrigerate (in the winter, we set it in the garage or on the deck).

Chocolate Layer:
(my notes say to double it, so I'm giving you the double recipe)
Melt 2 cups of chocolate chips and 12 T. butter.
Pour and spread over the Mint Layer, and refrigerate.

You can make the mint layer and chocolate layer thinner, but we love it this way.

I just used a plain vanilla frosting but I think cream cheese is inspired. YUM
