Creme de Menthe Brownies

What more can I say about these, except that they are completely amazing? My sister, Marnee, and I sat up one evening in her first apartment in Marlton, NJ, and ate almost an entire pan of these (along with a good half gallon of milk!). Needless to say, our stomachs regretted it. :)

Approximate cooking time: 40 minutes; 1 hour cooling time.

1 pkg. brownie mix, with ingredients necessary to make them

½ c. butter
2 c. powdered sugar
2 T. Crème de Menthe

Chocolate Topping:
6 oz. chocolate chips
6 T. butter

Prepare the brownies as directed on the package, but cook for approximately 5 minutes less than directed (they should be slightly undercooked). Allow them to cool completely. Combine frosting ingredients and beat well. Spread in a thin layer over the chilled brownies. Combine topping ingredients in a small pot over low heat until melted. Pour over the frosting layer and chill until set.
