I didn't care for the brownie recipe. Other reviewers called the brownies dense and moist but mine were dry and cakey, so I don't know where the disconnect there is. I believe using 3 eggs instead of 4 might help with this. The mint frosting is quite stiff, and I had to spread it very carefully with my fingers so as not to tear the brownies. I found that two tbs of the mint liqueur was not enough mint flavor for me, so I added a third. For the mint frosting to be green, I needed green food coloring--my creme de menthe liqueur is clear.
Adding butter to the chocolate for the top layer isn't necessary; if you want to cut out some of the fat you can just microwave your chocolate on half power in 30 second bursts, stirring after each burst, until it's melted enough to work with. Try to use a bowl that doesn't absorb much heat itself.
