Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 sticks butter
  • 4 ounces unsweetened chocolate, chopped
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 3/4 cups sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 3 tablespoons green creme de menthe
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons half-and-half

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter a 13x9x2-inch metal baking pan.
  • Place butter and unsweetened chocolate in a heavy bottom saucepan and heat over low heat. Stir constantly until melted and smooth. Remove from heat and cool slightly.
