  6. Allow the brownies to cool down completely while you prepare the frosting...

  7. In a mixing bowl, add butter and mix until smooth. 

  8. Add powdered sugar (1/2 cup at a time) while continuing to mix until the desired spreadable consistency is achieved.  

  9. Add mint extract and green coloring and mix until combined. 

  10. Spread frosting on the cooled brownies and chill for at least 1 hour before cutting slices. 

  11. Drizzle each slice with melted chocolate and enjoy!
