DIRECTIONS

  • Heat oven to 350°F.
  • BROWNIES: Grease bottom only of 13x9-inch pan. Make and bake brownies according to package directions. DO NOT OVERBAKE. Cool completely (it cannot be frosted until there is no warmth on the bottom of the pan or the frosting will slide around.
  • MINT FROSTING: In medium bowl, beat butter and cream cheese until light and fluffy. Add remaining filling ingredients; beat until smooth. Spread evenly over cooled brownies. Refrigerate until hard (approximately 30 minutes).
  • GLAZE: In small saucepan, melt butter. Then turn off heat and stir in chips, stirring until completely smooth. Pour frosting evenly over filling; spread carefully to cover. I like to run a serrated knife across the top to give it a pattern.
  • Refrigerate 1 hour before cutting into bars but don't let the chocolate topping harden too much or it will crack when you cut it. Store in refrigerator (they also freeze beautifully).
