Mint Chocolate Brownies

I love mint chocolate; pair that with my other love - brownies - and you have the perfect dessert!

Melt together 2/3 cup butter with 3 squares baking chocolate.

2 cups sugar
4 eggs
1 Tbsp. mint extract
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt

Add chocolate mixture to above mixture and mix well. Pour in greased 9x13 pan and bake at 325 for 25-30 minutes.

Cool completely, then make icing and spread on top.

4 Tbsp. butter, softened
2 Tbsp. milk
1/2 tsp. mint extract
green food coloring
2 cups powdered sugar

Put frosted brownies in the refrigerator for 30 minutes or freezer for 5 minutes, then melt:
1 Tbsp. butter
1 cup chocolate chips

Carefully spread on top of icing before chocolate sets.
