  • 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.
