  • 1
    Heat oven to 350° F. Spray 15 regular-size muffin cups with cooking spray.
  • 2
    In large bowl, mix brownie mix, water, oil and eggs. Fill muffin cups two-thirds full of batter. Bake 15 to 18 minutes or until edges are dry but centers are still slightly soft. Cool 5 minutes in cups, then remove to cooling rack to cool completely while you make frosting.
  • 3
    In medium bowl, beat Crème de Menthe Frosting ingredients with electric mixer on medium-high speed until smooth and creamy. Add more liqueur a teaspoon at a time if necessary to reach desired consistency. Spread frosting on tops of cooled brownie cups.
  • 4
    Place Chocolate Glaze ingredients in heatproof bowl set over a saucepan of simmering water. Stir frequently as mixture melts; remove from heat just when no lumps remain. Pour a spoonful over frosting on each cup. Sprinkle with chocolate sprinkles, if desired. Let stand 15 minutes before serving.

Expert Tips

If desired, substitute green food color and 1 teaspoon mint flavoring for the crème de menthe liqueur.

You can make mini cups. Bake 10 to 13 minutes. Makes 30 mini cups.

For smoothest frosting, sift powdered sugar before making frosting.
